The Scorpion STR A and Scorpion STR tires are Pirelli’s premium Highway All-Season tires that were designed to deliver the Stability, Traction and Ratings (STR) appropriate for today’s light trucks by adapting their performance to the needs of crossover vehicles, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickup trucks. The Scorpion STR tires are designed to combine a quiet and comfortable ride along with ease of handling and year-round traction, even in light snow.

The Scorpion STR’s tread compound is molded into one of two similar, but slightly different symmetric tread designs. The tires featuring Pirelli’s North American tread pattern are identified as Scorpion STR A tires, while those featuring their European tread pattern are simply identified as Scorpion STR tires.

The Scorpion STR A tire’s North American tread pattern features continuous shoulder ribs and narrower groves between all of the independent tread blocks. This type of tread design would tend to result in a quieter, more even-wearing tire.

The Scorpion STR tire’s European tread pattern features lateral grooves through the shoulder ribs and larger grooves between all of the independent tread blocks. This type of tread design would tend to result in a tire with better hydroplaning resistance and wet traction.

On the inside, both Scorpion STR tires feature twin, high- tensile steel belts reinforced with polyamide to provide strength and durability on top of a two-ply polyester cord body that helps cushion the ride.


  1. This tire came with my Ford F150 4×4 new in 2014. I live in New York a four season state and they handle all season well, until now after four years later the tread life is awful only have 23,000 miles and these need to be replaced.I’ve had the tires rotated at every oil change by Ford regularly. I fine it very hard to believe Im reading reviews on this tire for 80,000- 100,000 miles when Im barely getting a quarter of the so call reviews state here by others tread life…..these must be the Tire Manufacture Stockholders reviews!!!!!

  2. 245x50R20 — Superior tread life; at 81k, will go 100k with very even wear. At 81k, tires remain quiet with perfect balance. Steering is tight and ride very smooth. Dry traction is good as new, but snow and wet traction while good has declined some. Tires have greatly exceeded my expectations. Will probably buy again, but will thoroughly analyze competition when replacing. Firestone Destination LE2 ratings are impressive.

  3. Don’t buy have had for 3 years and the tires are almost to wear bars. I got rotated every 5,000. Went and checked again today with penny and tread is still below Lincoln’s head. Expected so much more from Pirelli was excited when I purchased this tire but found out Pirelli must have changed their standards. Am reading about other brands that have terrible tread wear so everyone is going cheap on expensive tires. Again don’t buy you will be sorry. 3 years 30,000 miles and tires are shot! I am 54 so I am not doing cookies at the mall or doing burnouts at stop lights. My family says I drive like a grandpa. Don’t buy! Tomorrow I go get new tires but won’t be Pirelli!

  4. Great tire, and I was pleasantly surprised when my SUV came from the factory with Pirellis. However, I am only halfway through the tread and the tires are so badly cupped and so noisy that I thought I had some mechanical problems. I use winter tires, so they are only used for a little more than half the year. Next spring I will be getting new tires for the summer.

  5. Pirelli tires rated for 65000 miles came on my new 2014 Ford Edge when I bought it new. We just have to replace all four at 40000 miles due to tread wear would not pass VA State Inspection. Vehicle only driven under normal conditions on mixed highway-city driving. Do not recommend buying Pirelli tire products.
