Good grip, questionable wear.
These were on the vehicle when purchased second hand 2 years ago. I suspect they have traveled around 40 to 60 000ks over a 3 to 4 year period and are due for replacement. Driving in the last 2 years, 30 000 ks has been primarily on good bitumen with a few turns on unsealed roads of varying condition (probably no more than 300ks total).
We have had no issues with grip in the wet. Noise can be an issue on some surfaces but that could be the vehicle. Main issue is chunking and feathering of the tread rubber on the front of the vehicle as though ...
These tyres are great
I've recently got four lovely Scorpion Verde AS for my Q3 after my Continentals were wore out. What can I say, they are an absolute delight! The Sorpions provide perfect handle in both wet and dry conditions and made noticeable difference when brake. We feel very safe and comfy with these tyres. And they are surprising quiet as well.
Good quiet tyres
On my second set on my Honda Crv. The original Bridgestones wore very well 65,000 km but replacements purchased in Australia though expensive gave me half the miles. So I tried Max is, then Kumho which were not great and all of these tyres were noisy except Pirelli. Could not hear the radio until Pirelli and Pirelli have delivered over 40,000 to 45,000 km in this vehicle.
I don't thrash my car so haven't tested their grip in a deep way but I'm very happy with them. I feel pretty safe with them.
On our Pajero when purchased. Don't know for how long. We have done 40,000 klm extra now, and rear tyres nearly worn out. Never rotated, never had a flat, great handling in wet, dry and off road. Probably make ride bit hard, is my only concern, especially on corragations which we have on our drive way.
Very Good So Far
Quiet, grip on the road for braking and cornering is very good. Certain they have a softer compound than we have had for a while and they are now over 12 months old (the original Yokohama's were soft and had terrible durability). Will be keeping an eye on wear over the next 12 months but so far very happy. Hope to get 3 years or 60,000-70,000 Klm out of them
Bought these 265/50/20 to replace the Kumhos that were on our Jeep Grand Cherokee from new. All I can say is out standing. Stiffer side wall so substantially reduced tyre roll and super quiet. Great in the dry or wet and We're cheaper than the Kumhos they replaced. About to put a set on our other car.
Good on dry.....bad on wet
Recently changed from OEM tyres to these ones. Have had pirellis on our other cars. Good grip on dry roads, tyre noise is great. Unfortunately in the wet they are terrible. Never have we seen the traction control light come on until now. Wheel spin from standing just getting out of our street. Loss of traction around roundabouts, even when my wife is driving who is less "aggressive" with the accelerator than me.
Have taken them back to change them with our local tyre shop.
Quiet and grippy
Quieter than discontinued Pirelli STR, but can't say how much of that is due to comparing worn tread STR with new tread Verde. Excellent levels of road handling and grip, but less than STR in gravel. Great for sealed roads. I praise God for the good fuel economy! Approx 1yr old.
Lucky to get 45,000km's
I've get a 2013 VW Amarok Highline and these came as standard.
Just hit 40,000km's and due for replacement.
Front ones wore down badly. Rotated them to the back after 25,000km's now almost down to the wear indicators.
Won't be replacing them with a new set of Perelli Scorpions Verde All Seasons that's for sure!
Inconsistent Rubber, Uneven Wear, Feathering, Falling Apart after 3000km
I used a set of these in my SUV and within 9 months and 4000km they started deteriorating, there was uneven wear along the ridges with each ridge being different height and appearing to be disintegrating. Cuts, abrasions and chunks were all visible on the tyres, looked like foam rather than rubber. If you've seen how foam wear then you will know what I mean.
I can't in all honesty recommend these particular "Green" tyres to anyone as I suspect inconsistency in the rubber compound (with other additives) and inferior composition. It's fine to...sell a tyre as "green" but you also need to tell the truth about possible disadvantages, instead of stroking people's ego and telling them they are saving the earth. You will waste your money on these tyres, get a non-green tyre instead. Pirelli, shame on you for not responding to any of my emails, not even wanting to see photos of the tyres, I would have though this is a safety issue for you to investigate in future green tyres. Obviously nobody cares, so consumers must be weary. Oh year, when you ask the retailers about this tyre, they say there is no difference in the wear/safety of green and regular tyres. This can't logically be true, misleading consumers. Green buyers beware. Very comfortable ride, soft and cushiony. Bad wear, inconsistent rubber, looked like worn foam rather than solid rubber.
Questions & Answers
What is the difference between Pirelli Scorpion A/S and a Pirelli Scorpion All Season Plus?
I have tried to copy a link but it's not working. Apparently they are the exact same tyre with the "plus" indicating that there are a few specific sizes that are for the OEM market. Certain sizes for the Amarok with 19 inch alloys, Land Rover Evoque and Volvo XC60. So I'm thinking as I replaced with Pirelli's that aren't an OEM size, I have just received the standard "All Season" variety.
I got this information from tirerack.com.
hope this helps.
I have a Holden Colorado 4X4 crew cab ute. I do approximately 300kms of highway driving per week and often go beach driving so need a tyre that is suited to both. Just wondering how people far with this tyre or if anyone knows of a tyre more suited to my needs. Any info/advice is greatly appreciated!
