    Simply DANGEROUS tyres!! Worst tire I ever had. can't get grip on even dry roads.. on wet roads they are dangerous!! Do not EVER buy these!

    throwing mine away after using them for 2 months. I value the life of my family higher than the price of a new set of tires!

    Fantastic snow and ice grip. Also, aqua planning is wonderful. Saved my life. Only con is mud performance.

    Great tire, used multiple seasons, provides excellent snow grip until I wore out the tread over 5 winter seasons (the last two were a bit marginal). As expected more noise than summer tires, and obviously cannot push as hard in the dry turns with that much tread, but these provide a lot of confidence in snow, ice and wet conditions; I often just easily drove through where everyone else struggled.

    Given 79% while driving a Opel Antara 2.2 4x4 184HP (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
    How I have chose this tire?! Well, I do like run-flat tires and, for the original 18" rims of my car, it was a good choice. The pandemic has coming and summer time as well and guess what?! Using first time in 2018's winter and again in 2019's winter I do not changed my Pirelli Scorpion Winter run-flat in 2020's summer. Their behaviour it was just awesome except the fuel consumption: good grip on wet, good grip on grass, good grip on dust, good grip on highway, in the real circumstance of a little aggressive driving style which I have. Now, in Transilvania winter has coming and the first snow as well. I already was on mountain area for outdoor activities and, on snow and snow & mud the grip it was good as usual. In conclusion, on my car, with 4x4 system and almost 1.9 tones weight, the Pirelli Scorpion Winter run-flat gave me a good and complete predictable behaviour of my running car, on all road circumstances.

    Bought them as a winter tyre set for a brand new Kodiaq RS. Good handling, great wet & dry grip. However, had one instance in snowy slush at very low speed, it lost complete grip and the car moved side ways. Did not get a chance to drive through much snow & ice as the winter was quite mild this season.

    Given 76% while driving a Dodge Challenger (245/45 R20) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
    These tyres were great in the snow. Never got stuck even in quite deep snow and braking was good. Had to stop pretty hard before they would skid in the snow. Also in heavy rain they felt good and didn't aquaplane going through deeper puddles.
    They feel confident up to about 110mph. Above 130 mph they feel really vague.
    I've had mine for 3 winters and that's enough. Even though they have a good bit of tread left they don't grip the snow so well. On cold frosty day, down to -12 I've had, they still work well. Just not in the snow anymore so much.
