    I have had these tyres on my car for 23k miles and they are still holding up well.There is even wear and no degradation at all.
    They do a great job in snow/mud/dry and wet

    Given 53% while driving a Volvo XC60 (225/60 R18) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
    THESE CAME FITTED AS STANDARD ON MY BRAND NEW, MY 2016,VOLVO XC60 SE LUX NAV D4 FRONT WHEEL DRIVE

    THESE TYRES ARE DANGEROUS IN THE WET,LOSE TRACTION AND GRIP ROUND BENDS, LETHAL IN THE SNOW ICE

    IN THE DRY THEY ARE GREAT, BUT BEING IN THE UK,ITS MOSTLY DAMP OR WET HERE
    THESE TYRES LOSE TRACTION ALMOST IMMEDIATELY ON PULLING AWAY IN THE WET AND DAMP CONDITIONS UNLESS YOU DRIVE AT A SNAILS PACE
    IN THE SNOW THEY ARE AS IF YOU ARE DRIVING ON ICE
    THESE MUST BE THE VERDE SUMMER TYRES AS THEY ARE VERY HARD WEARING, HARDLY ANY WEAR IN 15000 MILES THIS MAY BE THE PROBLEM , CIRCA 6 MM FRONT 8 MM PLUS REAR,THE COMPOUND OF THE RUBBER IS TO HARD FOR THE UK TEMPERATURES AND CLIMATE , IN MY OPINION THEY SHOULD NEVER BE USED IN THE UK MARKET.

    I WILL BE REPORTING THIS TO VOLVO NEXT WEEK AS HAD ENOUGH OF THESE TYRES AFTER THIS LAST BIT OF SNOW, MADE THE CAR NEAR UNUSABLE, NOT GOOD FROM A CAR MANUFACTURED IN SWEDEN WHICH SHOULD KNOW BETTER!

    PS I HAVE OVER 40 YEARS DRIVING EXPERIENCE, BOTH MILITARY AND CIVILIAN FROM MOTORCYCLES TO CLASS 1 HGV ABNORMAL LOADS, ON AND OFF ROAD, ITS THE TYRES NOT ME!

    These tyers came on my jeep grand Cherokee limited 2020 from the factory.. For the first year on dry and wet surfaces they skided slightly,but now on the third year at around 30K kms,they are skidding alot on both dry and wet. You do not want to know how they performed on snow. Winter is starting and new A/S tyres will be installed tomorrow.

    Given 64% while driving a Land Rover Freelander 2 (235/55 R19) on mostly motorways for 20,000 easy going miles
    Not as good as original continentials from new which gave 45k miles. Bad wear rate on the Verdes with tread down to 3.5mm in 17k miles on mostly motorway. Very noisy with rough ride as they become Worn but very quiet when new and until tread goes down to about 5mm. Good points are they wear evenly with all 4 having same wear patterns however having to replace now due to one tyre becoming out of round (radial runout). No apparent damage.

    Given 87% while driving a Ford Kuga (235/45 R19) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
    Had these tires on ford kuga 4x4 for 10k miles now, to say the vehicle is driven with spirit is an understatement, they perform very well in the snow, good in the wet, great in dry conditions, they wear well BUT, I find them quite noisy at speed but then again maybe most winter tires would at motorway speeds.

    My original GLC came with Pirelli Scorpion Verde fitted and it only last 25,000 KM until it was worn out. Replaced with another 4 Pirelli Scorpion Verde and once again they last 20,000KM. I would not waste any more money on Pirelli, my mechanic told me to switch to Continental PremiumContact as they last a lot longer.

    Worst tyre I have had in over 50 years of motoring. After 2 years and 14,000 miles first sign of cracking in grooves between treads. Cracking progressively got worse until had to change tyres at 4 years and 30,000. By this time tyres were in a distressed state with multiply cracks in groves and chunking of tread. Material looked very hard and brittle. For reference previous set of Pirelli tyres were changed after 5 years and 43,000 miles with over 2mm tread left,
