Given 76% while driving a Volvo XC90 D5 185 HP (235/60 R18) on mostly motorways for 25,000 easy going miles
I purchase these tires to replace the Chinese tires that I had on my car. The Chinese tires were okay when new but wore out rather fast and in less than a year it was completely worn out.

Immediately after putting on these Pirellis and the moment I drove off the workshop, I could feel the difference. These tires felt smoother and quieter on the road. I bought this tires because I was hoping it would make my highway commutes more comfortable and I have the peace of mind when its wet. It indeed delivered on those fronts. On some occasions where I travel to travel on rough gravel roads, these tires performed very well. Gave me excellent grip through the gravel and had no problem whatsoever. Braking distance was also good and got me through some heavy rains and on flooded roads.

After 14 months and 40,000km later, the tires were well worn to the legal limit and I had to replace them. My only gripe was that, I wanted the tires to last longer because I have had tires where I pushed its life to beyond 50,000km. That was the only let down I had and subsequently went and purchase Michelin Primacy +.

Price wise, it was not the most expensive nor the cheapest. Definitely on the higher end but you get what you pa for. I would recommend this tire to others and would not mind buying them again. It is just that, I wanted to try other tires. Trust me when I say it is not as bad as the reviews bashing it.

Latest Pirelli Scorpion Verde Reviews

Given 73% while driving a Nissan (235/55 R20) on track for 38,000 miles
I purchased a car with Pirelli Scorpion Verde 235/55R20 tires installed on them. A couple of months later, I went on a trip with my family. On the way, I got caught in heavy rain. My surprise was strong when I experienced the effect of aquaplaning, it was impossible to go faster than 70 kilometers / hour (about 45 mph). The effect of collarity was also noticed when the tires "catch" the track. The mileage of the tires at the end of 2023 was less than 60,000 kilometers (38,000 miles) and there are already wear indicators that require replacement of these tires. This is simply unacceptable.

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.

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.

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,

Good grip and tyre wear, however huge tyre roar over 60mph. This coupled with a poor road surface can made long journeys a pain.
