An all terrain tyre, for use on all surfaces: versatile in all situations with excellent off road capabilities.
Off road it is tenacious and reliable. On road it provides comfort, excellent traction and resistance to wear.
Scorpion ATR is the technological footprint on the ground for extremely versatile and powerful vehicles: thanks to its reinforced structure and very unique tread design Scorpion ATR makes light work of driving these vehicles on rough terrain. Excellent traction grip on every surface, reduced aquaplaning, top braking efficiency, and the highest resistance to damage, while providing easy comfortable driving on normal roads.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

15.10.2015 from Annette Grey These tires have been on my Hummer H2 (Optimus Prime) since 2006. They were replacement tires I purchased. The Pirilli Scorpion ATR tires are impressive and outstanding performers. You should see Optimus Prime transform down the sunshine state highways on these Pirelli tires.
18.12.2014 from Mike Solid Tire. Have not been tested in the snow yet
12.10.2012 from Dimitri Good all around, although a 50/50 on/off. Driven mostly on road, but also off road. Worked well in mud and fresh, cold snow. Only time I got stuck was on soft, spring snow, the tires had already close to 40000 km. Had them for 4 yrs + 1 yr from production date when purchased. They still maintain good tread, but rubber is now tired.
09.05.2012 from GBC This is the second set of Scorpion tires I have purchase, both sets have gone on Jeep Cherokees. They are a great tire for the price, decent for HW/snow/off road. I wouldn't go in the mud though.
