WDR,

Not sure if they are the same tyre as you are asking about, but I've had some AT Scorpions for about 12,000kms.

Survived a trip through very sharp stony ground in extreme heat in the Pilbara, no chunks have come off treads, plus have been quiet on road. Performed just fine in sand and I am heading across the Simpson with them in a few months.

Not all that thrilled with wear though. I'd be suprised if I get 30,000km out of them, with rotation.

They are my first set of 4WD tyres so I'll be back on this site next year when I'm up for replacements.

Cost me $169 each I think.

Tim

Hi WDR, I have Pirelli Scorpion Zero’s on my Rangie. I have done about 12,000 kms and with one exception, I’m happy with them.

The exception was that I thought the Rangie might have needed a wheel alinement because I would seem to get a very small bit of wondering when on the freeway, only place I noticed it and then I read the tyre review posted by Andrew L and one of the people there had stated that it was like driving on spaghetti and that is exactly what it’s like but not quite that extreme.

Otherwise, I am pleased with them. I had Badyear Wranglers on the rangie before I put the Zeros on. They sounded and felt like truck tyres but the Zeros are loads quieter and seam to handle well, particular in wet conditions.

I was told to run them at 3 or 4 lbs higher than they are rated at as this is supposed to make them wear more evenly and so far there is little evidence of much wear at all.

At this point, if they continue to wear well, I will be put them on again and at $500 each I hope the continue to wear well.

Cheers

We have just replaced the Scorpions on our Jeep Cherokee after 86,000klms. They were stuffed! but had been across the simpson and over some very rough outback roads with no problems.

Had a set on a Disco. Performance average and a very short life span. Not impressed.

Cheers
