Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow
Follow-Up Review: 42,000 miles on tires
February 12, 2013
with 40K niles I have not even rotate the tires yet, so both front tires have some side wear now as a result of turning wheels wear, and at 42K miles I have finally placed front tires on the back and rear tires on the front... so the front tires (that from the rear) are now in great looking condition... and rear tires are OK to be in their place a they still heave good condition in the 90% of the middle part. As i have moved to Florida about 1.5 years ago - i am still driving these Ice & Snow Scorpions in Florida.. Funny or not - they do pretty good. When time will come I will replace them with Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated) 235/60R18 as a little bit better option for summer all year around climate (may give some better look, more like summer performance tires, and probably better milage on gas. If I would still living in North regions, I would buy the same old Ice & Snow Scorpions
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
August 21, 2010

Wow, after I have replaced my old Goodyear Eagle RS-A (pretty good OEM tires), i was so surprised by my new Scorpions with its comfort level at first, with very soft and nice ride, and almost no noise in the car. I have Mazda CX-7 and it is a very noisy car itself, Japan cars don't have such good noise isolation as American (let's say Cadillacs or even Chryslers) or German (BMWs or Mercedes's). So comfort level was first and biggest surprise of Pirelli Scorpio Ice&Snow. Then Wet Traction is just superior. I usually drive 85-90 miles per hour in US, i would say always, does not really matter dry, rain or snow (sorry guys, i have no speeding tickets for 16 years, I know how to talk nice to troopers and police, so i am lucky on this side). I am from Europe, so in Germany for example I am driving up to 160-170 MPH (if car allows, usually if BMWs-170MPH, Volvos-160MPH, Opels-156MPH). So with these new Scorpios I would drive up to the its limit with no concerns, even on the wet road. Nice nice tires, probably once of the best I have ever used o my cars. I belive that I have found the best tire for the Mazda CX-7. Will see how it will wear out with time, but as of today I am very happy with these Scorpions.
