Graet on Jeep

published

Brought 2013 for Jeep Cherokee the improvement from OME was amazing, quite, better handling. Have done 50000km and will replace in next couple of months, only because i change every 18 months for reliability.
off road was good for an ATR and on road is as good as if not better than any road tire i have used on a 4wd
Life, handling, quiteness

Good tyre, short life

published

I've a set of Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/60/18 fitted to my Land Rover Discovery 3 (2008). They went on at 89000 km, and are down to the wear line (literally) at 136000, so only 47000 km out of 'em. I looked after them (pressure at around 36 psi / 245 kPa, no towing, etc) and was disappointed that they seemed to last no longer than the cheaper factory tyres.
Quiet, good traction on and off road
Shorter life than expected for the price

Have been up Noosa North shore ( at low tide) and also in some loose sand and have found them just fine. Most of my driving has been out west on unsealed roads and not a problem at all.

OK Tyre

published

Have 265/65R17's on a NT Pajero - I like everything about the tyres except the wear.
Towing a 2.3 tonne van with a ball weight of approx. 200 kg for about 50% of the time I'm going to be lucky to get 40,000kms !!
Have had all the necessary balancing, rotation and alignment stuff done - but still not a good result.
Good grip - both wet & dry, quiet and stable
Poor mileage, especially when heavily loaded

Wow what a great tire.

published

I bought my Land Rover Discovery 2 in 2006 and changed tires right away. In that 6 years these tires have done 135,000 Kms and only now need replacing. in the same time I have had 2 punctures, the first was past the 100,000 Km mark. A friend of mine has a Disco on BGF ATR and he has gone through 2 sets and is looking at a third,and has done a little less mileage than me. Very quiet on the road with no lost of grip in the wet. Off road and on the beach never lost traction never had wheel spin.Cant buy this size tire in Australia any more, so I have had to order them from the States which as a bonus is saving me at least $300 so all is good.
Driven over 135,000 Kms, Quiet, Sure footed.

They were safe and legal, I kept an eye on the ware and when it had almost reached the notch it was time for 4 new Scorpions. Great tires.

Brilliant Tyre. Fitted to my 2004 Triton Dual cab. As it is my work car I carry about 350 KG permanently in the back. I have only rotated them once and rarely check pressures. Basically I haven't looked after them. Despite my laziness I have got 85000km out of these tyres. The front need replacing while the rear still have a bit of life. These tyres are quiet on the road and handle both wet and dry with ease. Off road they are no muddy, but perform well beyond expectation. Previously I was running Maxis all terrain pattern and desert duellers. I would back these tyres over the others any time.
Handling, wet performance, price

Expensive But Well worth it.

published

I fitted a set of Scorpions to my Mitsi Challenger, which does 90% on road and 10% off. Ive run 50,000K so far and they are about 75% worn which is an exceptionally low wear rate, and I drive them fairly hard.

On road performance is excellent with outstanding stability in corners and under braking.(None of the tread squirm that I've noticed on other brands)

Off road has also been good (at least as good as other 4x4 tyres in soft and wet conditions and mud) although I have not tested them in extreme conditions or in soft sand.
Great tyre life, quiet on highway, excellent stability at speed, Good off road.
Expensive

You can find them on Ebay, the seller is Temprtyre. Great price.

Great tyre, virtually ignored by the majority of 4Wdrivers

A very well thought out tyre

published

In recent weeks I have purchased a set of Pirelli ATR 285/75 R16's and must pass on that these tyres are practically noiseless regardless of road condition - steering is light and feels more direct, and breaking in wet, dry and gravel is exceptional to say the least. These tyres were not cheap costing over $400ea but if they last the distance and continue to perform the way they do I will most certainly be purchasing a 2nd set. Keep in mind that this is not a serious off road tyre, it performs best on road and very well in gravel or dry conditions. If you are like me, and do the majority of your driving on road, this is a very good performer for such a task.

Bad

My car is a 2005 100 series Landcruiser, Always handbook service including tyre rotation. Purchased new. You can do better for the money.
Tyres are quiet, no road noise. Handles well in the wet.
(no offroad driving at all, only highway use). I have had these tyres fitted twice, both times their wear was excessive. The 1st set lasted less than 40,000km and the second have only done 23,000km. I am replacing with another brand of tyres.

High cost & low km performance, These tyres are not worth it.

Don't blame the tyres. You are driving an inferior vehicle. Try a Land Rover LR3, and see the difference.

I have now had three sets of new tyres on the same vehicle but this is the first time i have sprung for a top shelf tyre and to be quite honest they are going to be cheaper in the long run as the wear is fantastic but I do rotate the tyres every 5000km and pay particular attentiom to tyre pressues. So far we have 35000kms on these and they are less than half worn with even wear. All tyres are showing between 6.4 and 6.8mm tread depth left. So to pay more but get the extra wear makes them the same price as el cheapo's and then the higher performance and wet grip is like a free bonus. best regards pete
wet grip, ride quality, no road noise at all!! and half decent in the mud for an all terrain, wear,
zero so far

OK

I had a set of these tyres on my NM 2000 Pajero and got 40,000 kms mainly around town with some off road. I thought this wasn't too bad and when they needed replacing I got another set. I have done 12,000kms and they are almost at the wear indicators. When we spoke to Pirelli their rep was arrogant and blamed the wheel allignment. I had it checked and it was so close to perfect it wasn't funny. After heaps of back and forth Pirelli have now agreed that something isn't right so they are going to help me out with the next set! Problem is I'm not sure if I want another set now, left a funny taste in my mouth!
Good road noise levels and grip
Wear out too quickly

fitted to nissan navara sd22,i purchased viechle new in 2007 and was never happy with original tyres (duelers a/t).now i have fitted these ride is so much quieter and smoother and i can actually stop in the wet with out sliding and take off with out wheel spinning. hopefully they will only get better when they have more k/m's on them
good wet weather grip and a very noticeable quieter ride
havn't found anything yet still early days.
