My 3rd purchase of these phenomenal tires for my VUE. Bought them for YEAR-Round use in Southern Ohio, based on NUMEROUS reviews of other nation-wide, YEAR-Round users. Short of living in Florida, Arizona or Southern Cal., (where it can be brutally hot for 7-8 months of the year), I can't recommend ANY other SUPERIOR all-season tire!! And they are VERY reasonably priced, considering you will NOT have to swap tires every winter/spring (that's 2 X $85.00+ mounting / balancing fees per season = $200 easily).<br><br>I know, they are labeled as Winter/Snow tires & NOT recommended for summer use, but SO MANY others, including myself, have driven these YEAR round, as long as your in temperate climates.<br><br>I'm now approaching 40K miles, they still have PLENTY of tread to get me thru the summer & I might just get thru next winter on them, depending on my commute. If so, that'll be FIVE seasons I've driven these, year round! <br><br>I had to get creative with a slightly customized size for my 18 Redline VUE wheels, but another 1/2 centimeter in height just gives my ride MORE tread and a MORE comfy ride. <br><br>Way to GO, Pirelli!! Please keep these excellent VALUE & EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE tires on the market for us!

Went to a custom size to fit these on Redline rims. Luv these tires, got me thru another harsh winter (for Ohio) and lacking the time & $$ to invest in summer tires right now, as I've read previously here I will take them into the summer months & keep an eye on treadwear & performance. I have some twisty S-turn hilly roads in my commute & the Scorpions got me up & down those roads this winter with nary a slip. Can't wait to get these for my wife's car as well!

These are one of the BEST cold-weather tires & possibly all-season as well. Pirelli: Keep up the great work!
