Had a set of four 225/55/17's on my X-Trail Columbia for 39,000 MILES and they are still legal - MOT'd yesterday. I don't drive like an idiot (hopefully) but I don't potter around either. These have had a good work out and will reach 40,000 very soon. Great tyre.

inherited these almost new with car. H speed (up to 130mph) was a bit optimistic for a BMW X3 and in due course it blew out on the motorway - not sure why, maybe hit a sidewall. Had previously had 2 other punctures - not on the tyre that blew out. Overall impression they were ok - but questionable wear after blow out, so wouldn't buy again.

Pirelli Scorpion str durability are fantastic !! I put these tires on the car with 56,000 km in June 2011. The car currently has 156,000 kilometers made ​​in June 2015. The rear tires are still the same ! 100,000 km !! and still have half the floor !! amazing! I'm not joking !!! 4 years! The front tires have been changed in the past year. Easily explained ! It is a front wheel drive car . They made 76,000 km ! amazing! I drive on asphalt and dirt track at moderate speeds(100-150) and high speed(180-210)... In wet conditions I advise not reach the limit only if you are an adventurous driver and very good driver but the tire fulfills its duty ! In dry conditions is an excellent ally and best friend! Floors with snow is not the best but not the worst !

dry traction is fine, in the wet on asphalt, this "4 season" lacks compared to top summer tyres, as can be expected. Wear is very low.

I bought the Pirelli Scorpion STR after researching them which they stated you would get heaps of mileage out of them. Well, I only got 30,000 km out of them. I did look after them. I rotated my tyres. Did everything right. I must admit the tyres did wear evenly. I would not by them again.

Got exactly 50km on current set, Honda CRV with 95% tar road travel. Hard driver, but expected 60km due to good maintenance, however I'm satisfied.

Very good tyre. Had these on my X3 since new and they are now on 44K and they still all have a tad over 3mm left. The other surprising thing is they are really good in the snow (unlike the Bridgestone original fit on my last X3!). Only point to note is as the tread gets low they get a little noisier but I can live with that. Will buy again.

Had those tyres for two years and drove smoothly and quitely for 50,000km now they are very noisy and rough with little cracks .
Their proce was very reasonable compared to other brands but i expected them to last longer.

Given 100% while driving a Land Rover Discovery 1 1996 (235/70 R16) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
Probably the best tyres I've ever bought, had the last set for 4 years on 3 cars over all types of terrain and motorway. Taking into account the fact that the tyre is 70/30 on to off road rating a very good all round tyre. Extremely tough. I'm on my second set.

Bought the STR to replace the original Dunlop SP200s on my X-Trail. The SP200 lasted for 20,000 miles on the front. The STR has been on for 60,000. No negative comments at all. Plus I have put at least 10k towing miles on these.
