The Scorpion All Terrain Plus is Pirelli’s On-/Off- Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed for drivers of pickup trucks, crossovers, and SUVs who want a balanced blend of on-road civility with off-road capability. The Scorpion All Terrain Plus is designed with a focus on optimizing durability, traction and wear resistance, in addition to providing light snow traction sufficient to receive the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.

Utilizing Pirelli’s cut- and chip-resistant, New Generation tread compound, the Scorpion All Terrain Plus is molded into a symmetric, high-void pattern. This pattern is designed to provide smooth and quiet on-road operation along with aggressive looks and confident off-road traction. Deep grooves and independent tread blocks help provide the clawing action needed to find grip in loose terrain, and conical stone ejectors resist punctures by forcing small rocks from the tread. Wide lateral notches and open shoulders evacuate water from the contact patch to aid hydroplaning resistance and the advanced compound combines with multiple block edges and in-block sipes to provide sure-footed performance in slippery or snowy conditions.

The internal construction of the Scorpion All Terrain Plus consists of a polyester casing to combine durability with ride comfort. Two high-strength steel belts stabilize and support the footprint, and multiple nylon reinforcement plies increase durability and provide high-speed capability.

Note: While non-winter tires featuring the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol provide additional longitudinal snow traction beyond what all-season (M+S) tires not bearing the symbol can deliver, they do not match the capability of a true winter tire in all adverse weather conditions.

  1. Bought these for my Tahoe, after much research. Still unsure when I bought them due to being a new version of Pirelli tires, and relatively few reviews, but can now say I am VERY happy with these. Handle great in all conditions, look aggressive even for an all-purpose tire, and the severe weather 3PMSF winter rating is big plus. Would definitely buy again.

  2. Just had the Pirelli Scorpion AT Plus tires installed on my 2016 Tacoma. Based on other reviews I was expecting more road noise than the Goodyear Kevlars they replaced…not so. No discernible difference in noise. But I do feel less tire jounce and the dry pavement handling is superb. The tread looks far more aggressive for off road conditions, and I’ll be anxious to see how well they perform in snow and ice. I had very bad luck with the OEM Goodyears…more nail punctures than I’ve ever had with any other tire. Made me wonder what the Kevlar belts actually do. Anyway, I’m hoping the Pirellis are less prone to road hazards…so far I’m impressed.

  3. Decent Tire. Purchased in Mar 2016, so 3yr, 3mo and almost 55k mi later, I’m told to start looking to replace. Has a 65k mi warranty so close but not quite. I rotated regularly but not where purchased due to that location being closed down. I have had no issues w tire. Definitely, better air pressure hold w/Nitrogen.

  4. In order to get these tires on my 3.6 Limited Subaru Outback, I changed my wheel size from 18s to 17s. Best move I’ve made. These tires are performing awesome on highway (remarkably quite) and even my wife commented they are a smoother ride than either of the BF Goodrich or Michelin highway tires. I’ve already had them in mud and dirt and traction is soooooo much improved. Side walls have a nice deep groove that bites well, and the tread is deep and well thought out. It bears repeating– I’m amazed at how quite they are on the highway. Feel secure in the rain and stick well in corners. I’m already looking forward to my next set. Haven’t had them in snow yet, but anticipate good results, since they are 3Peak Snow rated. For a highway/off-road combo, I think Pirelli hit a home run.
