Exceeded expectations on dirt

Purchased these in March 2022 for our Isuzu Mux and have done 30,000kms including towing a caravan for 75% of these kms. Also travelled the Gibb River road twice including Mitchell Falls and had no issues. The rear tyres would need replacing if I had not rotated them, however I expected this from my experience with towing with my previous Bridgestone H/T tyres. They are as quiet on the bitumen and as good in the wet as the the previous Bridgestone H/T tyres. They are more expensive than some of the other A/T tyres, however there are few options in the 255/60/R18 112H size. Show details

Great tyre

17000 km only so far on Pajero Sport. Started at 10 mm have used about 2 mm. I have found grip on asphalt wet or dry to be excellent. Have been off-road in serious sand and again grip and handling excellent. Not very noisy. Good stability on dirt roads. Well, now up to 30,000 and still pleased. Retains grip and handling on and off road, wearing across whole tyre evenly. Should see 45,000. Taking to snow? in August, see how that goes. Fine in snow, now at 45,000 and still going. Grip still good. Still little noise. Show details ·  1

Great tyre for an AT

Purchased these as an upgrade for the highway tyres my 4wd came with from new. After plenty of research and price checking I settled on these. They are a great compromise for an AT. I probably spend 90/10 on road to off. They are quiet and handle well on road, but still handle well and seem durable so far off road as well. Very happy with my purchase so far. Show details

Good at first now howling like the wolf!

Replaced Scorpion AT with these on my Discovery 3 and at first was very impressed but gradually noticed an annoying hum from the front drivers side which I assumed was a mechanical issue. However nothing was found at service and after I had the tires rotated and realigned the noise is now at the rear. 5000 km later the tires are howling, there is no uneven wear and no scalloping. Very annoying. Show details

Totally at a loss to explain!

I wore out my OEM Kumho A25 that came with Nissan Navara NP300 at 12000km. I drive 25km each day back and forth from work on the blacktop, drive 5.7km of those on rally track like conditions- blacktop but exceptionally winding, bumpy and surface like corrugations in places. I bought the Pirelli ATR Plus and done 10000km - already had to buy a second hand tyre on rear driver side! The tyres were rotated at 5000km. I don't putt along but don't drive at excessive high speed either. I don't know what is wrong but surely did not expect this much wear on an ATR tyre at $245 a pop! Show details

Very noisy

Extremely noisy tyres. Done 40000km and not impressed. Plenty of tread left but the drone is very annoying. Durable tyres. I run them at 44psi and rotated every 10000km. Dont buy Show details

Pirelli Scorpion AT Plus - Excellent Tyres

I bought the AT Plus back in July 2018. Done 40 K on them in all conditions. Beaten the crap out of them in the Victorian Highlands and they never missed a beat. Wet road handling is excellent compared to the OEM tyres. They were terrible. Can't fault them. Show details

Great Tyre for 80/20 Use on my Pajero

Upgraded from Pirelli Scorpion ATR to ATR Plus for better grip off road. The ATR Plus are as faultless on sealed roads as where the previous ATR model. The more aggressive tread pattern has enhanced off road capability without compromising on road performance. Show details

Disappointingly noisy after 10,000kms

The tyres upon fitting were nearly as quiet as the Michelin Latitude Tour HP that they were replacing. Had been looking for some time for a high quality more aggressive tyre and this seemed to meet the brief. They have performed admirably having towed a 2.5 tonne caravan through Central Australia in many varied conditions. However after the initial quiet they have moved to being a constant hum especially on smooth surfaces. Disappointed about that but that is the only apparent downside. Jeep Grand Cherokee with 265 60 R18 tyres. Show details

I love these tyres, they are confidence inspiring!

I love these tyres, they have heaps of dry and wet grip, I had the OEM Dunlop AT22 tyres on my Ranger before and they were horribly dangerous in wet weather, dry weather grip wasn't great either. I had no confidence with the Dunlop tyres at all! The Pirelli Scorpion ATR Plus are a fantastic tyre, they have a very aggressive tread pattern but are very quiet and comfortable, they have heaps of wet and dry road grip, they also have great grip on dirt and gravel roads, I am very happy and confident that the Pirelli tyres are gripping the road in all conditions. I would recommend these tyres to everyone. Show details

I also want to know where are these tyres made? Lack of answers leads me to believe they are from Chyna, I'm not keen on Chinese made tyres

Thanks Joe, very interesting. Pirelli is indeed Italian, I have previously run the Pirelli Scorpion MTR which were made in Brazil on another 4WD but the MTR is not available in an 18" size.

Where are they made?

According to the answer I received, they are made in Romania. I checked my other car that's fitted with the Pirelli Cinturato but had to look on the inside wall to see that they were also made in Romania.

I have a 2012 Nissan X Trail with 225/60R17 tyres that need replacing. If I opt for the Scorpion AT+ in 225/65R17 how much do you think that will affect 1: Acceleration? 2: Odometer readings? Not much into the ATR's as have heard bad reviews re them breaking up/puncturing etc. Thanks...Tony
