Pirelli Scorpion STR
Initial Review: 17,000 miles on tires
May 05, 2012

Bought these tires to replace the Toyo tires which were OEM, and were 235/55R-20 in size, an odd size which offered limited choices and high prices. Michelin was about the only choice I had at the time, which were twice the price with no milage warranty. These new Pirelli's were slightly larger, and some dealers told me they would not work, would cause all kinds of problems, it would screw up my speedometer calibration, damage the AWD , etc. To make a long story short, I am extremely pleased with the tires; the ride and handling is excellent, they are extremely quiet, and at the present rate of wear should last 60,000+ miles; it took almost 500 miles of driving to wear the little nubs off the tires. We don't take corners on two wheels in the Murano, but the tires handle great and track straight on the interstate. The Toyo's only gave me 24,000 miles. We haven't had much snow so I couldn't say how they will do in the white stuff, but judging from the wet traction I think they will do well. I can't praise these tires enough, I'll buy another set when it's time to replace them.
