The Scorpion Ice & Snow is Pirelli’s Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow tire developed for the drivers of luxury crossover and sport utility vehicles, as well as many of today’s modern muscle cars, like the Chevy Camaro, Chrysler 300C, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang. The Scorpion Ice & Snow is designed to enhance low-temperature wintertime driving performance by combining predictable handling on dry and wet roads with traction in snow and on ice.

The Scorpion Ice & Snow tire features a tread rubber compound that remains flexible at lower ambient temperatures to enhance grip and handling in typical winter conditions. The tread compound is molded into a subtly asymmetric tread design that features a stable shoulder area to enhance dry road handling, circumferential grooves to provide hydroplaning resistance and help maintain good traction on wet and slush-covered roads while angled independent tread blocks with circumferential and lateral sipes help the tire bite into snow.

The Scorpion Ice & Snow winter / snow radials meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.

Install Scorpion Ice & Snow tires in sets of four only.

Vehicles should always be equipped with equivalent tires at all wheel positions. These winter / snow tires, due to their exceptional snow and ice traction provided by their unique tread compounds, must be used in sets of four to help ensure proper vehicle control


  1. The performance is good in all conditions but the road noise is intolerable above 65 mph. Above 75 it is absolutely crazy. Can’t take it anymore and must replace for that reason. Performance is good but not worth the it. Will drive you insane. If you only drive under 60 they are great. Otherwise don’t do it!!!!

  2. Just purchased a set of Pirelli Scorpion ice and snow tires. Just after a few days of getting the tires put on it snowed several inches. What a huge difference these tires made. Changing lanes going through the slush and deeper snow had total control. These are great tires so far.

  3. Everyone I know tried to talk me out of buying these tires, even the good folks here at Tire Rack. I know they only had my interests at heart, so please understand that my remark is not intended as a slight. I was told that these tires would be horrible in Florida, that they would be loud, wear out immediately, and one rather uninformed individual (not from Tire Rack) went so far as to tell me that they would **MELT** in the Florida heat. Clearly, this person has never been trapped in Manhattan during a bad summer.The truth is, all the folks above (including the good folks at Tire Rack), may have taken the “winter” aspect of these tires a bit too literally. The winter designation, especially on a world-class tire like Pirelli, doesn’t mean that the tires will detonate if one tries to drive on them 30 seconds past midnight on June first, it just means that they are *optimized* for winter use – not that they can’t be used at any other time.These tires have been an absolute *JOY* to drive on, here in south Florida, where one day is wretchedly hot, and the following sees us inundated with 14 inches of rain in three minutes. The Scorpions have handled the severe wet weather with ease (the main reason I bought them, other than their unbeatable price), cruise whisper quietly, respond almost *instantaneously* to steering input, and give a wonderfully smooth, and comfortable ride. What else does one want from a tyre? I understand that these tires won’t last quite as long as a set *optimized* for summer touring, but at about $80 a piece, with the incredible performance, and wet-weather safety that they deliver, I am now thinking of buying a second set to have on hand, for when these wear out in about 30,000 miles! They’re THAT good, even in Florida, Arid-Zona, Connect- a-Cut, Maing, East Dakota, or even South Virginia, the place is irrelevant – these are exceptional tires that will serve you WONDERFULLY, wherever you live!

  4. This is fourth set of tires that I bought of and for sure that’s not the last one. Although I’m fan of Michelin’s tires I’m really impressed with performance of this set of Pirelli’s winter tires.This winter season my wife and I drove to Winter Park, Colorado from Chicago and we didn’t even have to wait much to try new tires in winter conditions that no one wants to drive. Freezing blizzard on the I-76 for over 60 miles, trucks flipped over on both sides of the highway. Up in the mountains the conditions weren’t better at all but we’ve made it thanks to the new set of Pirelli winter tires. Now, something for unbelievers that deny winter tires purpose – if you traveling with your kids during the winter and you are not using winter tires you are risking life of your precious munchkins. It doesn’t matter if you have 4×4 or AWD and it doesn’t matter how good driver you’re. It’s must have for traveling families and better have for the rest of us unless you live in Florida of course 🙂 Thank you !

  5. I bought these dedicated snow tires for our Snowy Vt winters.They are fine for highway and rain, but absolutely horrible in the snow and in slippery conditions .Nokia. Tires were not available in the size I required but are outstanding in snowy conditions,Likewise Bridgestone Blizzaks are equally good but short on tire life.For next winter I plan on getting rid of the Pirelli¿s as they are actually dangerous . I am not eager to rebuy expensive tires but these are so bad I just don¿t want to take anymore chances with them .Sorry Tire Rack, not your fault.

  6. I matched these tires on another set of wheels strictly for the winter. These tires are by far the best tires i e ever driven on in the winter. .5 inches of ice and snow to 3 feet of snow… these tires did very well. Very comfortable tire, they do not wear fast and they are quiet. 6.5 inches on the ground I switched the car into front wheel only and they still did amazing things in the snow. I live on a hill and where there are lots of steep hills… in the snow it’s like driving up the California coast… easy. Buy these tires. You won’t regret them.
