Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow Tire
Although Pirelli is known mostly for making high-performance summer rubber fit for supercars, they know a thing or two about winter tires. The Scorpion Ice & Snow is Pirelli’s offering for SUV/Truck winter tires, and it compares favorably against many of the popular winter tires sold today. The versatile tread design incorporates plenty of grooves to effectively channel water and slush away from the contact patches, decreasing the likelihood of hydroplaning in a critical situation.
The tread blocks are full of snow traction-enhancing sipes, ensuring you’re not caught off guard by freshly fallen powder. Although the overall traction levels on slippery surfaces are nowhere near what Nokian has to offer, the Pirelli’s Scorpion Ice & Snow winter tires strike a great balance between traction and sporty handling that won’t disappoint owners of sporty SUVs/trucks.
