Worst 4x4 Tyre I bought for my Prado
Good wet handling or city drive but at highway tyre tred chips out, For sand drive very poor traction. 18-16 psi won’t work in sand, still slipping and stuck.
Not recommending for 4 wheel drives
Quiet but a little soft and low wear
These tyres are quiet on highway good in sand but wear was disappointing. I assume soft compound hence wear was poor. 40000ks and barely legal even after wheel alignment and balance
Purchased in September 2018.
Amazingly good tyres - wouldn't have anything else on my Landcruiser
I am on my third set of Pirelli Scorpion ATR's after trying Bridgestones and talking to mates who have run Coopers, Toyos and other brands. I run a standard 100 series turbo diesel Landcruiser now with over 330,000kms on the clock and tow an Australian Off Road Quantum camper trailer - near 2 tonne when fully loaded. The first set of Pirellis I purchased only gave me 45,000kms which was disappointing but my tyre dealer chastised me for running them too low at 35psi. The next set I purchased I ran at the dealers recommended 40psi and got 60,0...00+ kms. The current set I have has done in excess of 65,000kms and is still going strong - will probably get another 5 - 10,000kms out of them. All this with never a flat tyre or other "fault" over the three sets. I am not into rotating tyres and getting a wheel alignment every 5,000kms as is "required" by other tyre manufacturers who claim high mileages for their over priced tyres but I do change the front to rear and vice versa when I think it is necessary. The current set includes our recent trip from Adelaide to Alice Springs, across the Tanami, through the Kimberley including Cape Leveque, Gibb River Road, Mitchell Falls etc etc - in all about 8,000 kms of dirt road and another 4-5,000kms of bitumen. Tyre pressures were adjusted frequently to suit the road/driving conditions. I can't emphasise enough that tyre management and driving to the conditions wherever you are is the name of the game. I agree with other comments that these tyres are quiet and handle well on both dirt and bitumen, in wet and dry conditions - wouldn't buy anything else - don't see the need to. I am convinced that the Pirellis are great value for money.
Purchased in June 2017 at North Terrace Tyres, Adelaide for A$880.00.
