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

after fitting 2 tyres to front of my 2017 vw tiguan & a wheel alignment, I now experience tyre noise. As i drive on motorway often the noise is quite annoying

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!

Given 51% while driving a Land Rover Freelander 2 (235/65 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 30,000 easy going miles
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,

Given 57% while driving a Volvo 2.0 T5 Saloon (225/55 R19 V) on for 27,000 average miles
Good grip and tyre wear, however huge tyre roar over 60mph. This coupled with a poor road surface can made long journeys a pain.

Given 91% while driving a Audi Q5 (235/65 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
Very good tyre and very durable. I have still about 3 mm in front and 3,5 mm in the rear axle, but its became unsteerable in the vet.

Given 91% while driving a Volvo XC60 (235/60 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 35,000 average miles
I’ve just changed the OEM fitted Pirelli’s and had the same tyre fitted again. I had 35,000 miles out of the fronts with the n/s/f showing 2mm and the o/s/f at 3mm. With all the very heavy rain I was unwilling to leave it much longer though it’s just possible I could have got to 40,000. I’ve been happy with these tyres, I don’t push things these days so they are probably more suited to a cruising / motorway tyre than anything sporty. I noticed a significant improvement with the new tyres which is unsurprising as the degradation is gradual over time. The originals were very heavy on the steering at the end and were noticeably less happy dealing with rough road surfaces and potholes that seem to proliferate on uk roads today.

Mercedes Benz (255/45 R20 W) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
Good grip when it's dry but not so gripping in the wet. They have worn well for 20,000 miles with still a little life in them. A possible alignment issue has contributed to uneven wear at the front so they'll all be replaced. Pirelli don't make the Scorpion Verde run flat as an All Season tyre in 20" so looking at Goodyear as an alternative.

Volvo (215/65 R16 V) on mostly country roads for 25,000 average miles
Have used these tyres on our VolvoXC70since we bought our car and noticed Volvo fit them as standard.
We do a lot of caravaning in all conditions and found the traction capabilities to be superb.Thwy are quiet and long lasting.
We will insist on them when changing tyres

Given 70% while driving a Land Rover Evoque (235/55 R19) on mostly country roads for 42,000 average miles
Original fitting to an Evoque. Still good after 42,000 miles so wear has been excellent despite rough country roads caning the life out of them. Down to 3mm on the front and now not so good in the wet and poor in standing water (to be expected I suppose). Excellent when we had snow, was only one to get out of the village apart from heavy duty land rovers.
