Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Brand: Pirelli
Tire: Scorpion Winter
Category: Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow
UTQG (treadwear): Not rated

This is a really cool tire from Pirelli. The Scorpion Winter combines some great winter traction ability in snow and ice, along with Pirelli's own Ecoimpact technology that is reserved for tires that help increase efficiency and low road noise. They do this all while designing the tire specifically for high horsepower vehicles that need exception winter traction. It is a very advanced tire, to say the least.  Utilizing a new polymer blend for the rubber compound, Pirelli has done a lot of research to make sure that this winter tire is among the best performance winter tire you can buy for trucks and SUVs. Interestingly, this tire comes in both a 3-rib and 5-rib tread design depending on the tire width. Pirelli recommends you only install these tires in sets of four due to their traction abilities in winter conditions

Drivers have been pretty impressed with this tire. Among it's peers, it ranks in the top 3 for the performance category. Compared to other winter truck tires, the Scorpion Winter tire will give you a better highway ride and this is due to the advanced technology mentioned previously. People keep telling me these tires are one of the most confident and predictable in terms of traction. You'll end up getting about 45,000 miles out of a set with proper tire rotations. That ends up being about average for the category. So at the end of the day, these might not be the best out there for performance winter truck tires, but they are probably pretty close. They don't give you full on traction, as others do, but they are a more livable tire due to their lower road noise and better efficiency.
