The Scorpion Verde (Italian for green) All Season is Pirelli’s eco-friendly Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of crossovers, sport utility vehicles and prestigious pickups. The Ecoimpact* icons on the sidewall of the Scorpion Verde All Season highlight its environmental compatibility where it reduces rolling resistance and tire weight, compared to Pirelli’s previous CUV/SUV tire lines, to increase fuel economy and lower the vehicle’s CO2 emissions. The Scorpion Verde All Season is designed to combine dry and wet road handling, comfort and year-round capabilities, including all-season traction in light snow.

The Scorpion Verde All Season molds a silica tread compound into an asymmetric tread design that features an optimized rubber-to-void ratio and uniform contact patch to blend dry road traction and performance with uniform wear. Four wide circumferential grooves displace water to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction while longitudinal siping for lateral stability on loose surfaces and high-density lateral siping enhance wet and wintertime traction.

*Specific sizes utilizing eco-focusing manufacturing methods are identified with Pirelli’s Ecoimpact designation on the Sizes tab, as well as on the tire’s Specs tab.

Limited sizes of the Scorpion Verde All Season are available with Pirelli Noise Cancelling System, which involves the manufacturer adhering a layer of sound-absorbing foam to the inner liner of the tire to reduce cabin noise in the vehicle. These sizes are identified on the Specs page and in the search results.

  1. When new, these tires are great. At 40,000 miles though, the noise and ride comfort become unbearable. There is a constant whomp whomp whomp during slow speeds. At high speeds, the road noise needs drowned out by the radio. There are other options out there.

  2. I am pleasantly surprised that a Pirelli tire would last this long, 29,000 in my case. High quality tire on my Porsche that looks good, wears great and performs great.

  3. These came installed on our 17 RRS V8 (it’s not an SVR, it was the only choice provided). After normal driving for not even 2 years, I need to replace them. The wear on these is astounding, and unacceptable. At 15,000 miles the tires started to sound like I had bearing issues which I’ve had looked at numerous times only to be told they’re the tires and I should have them replaced. This is unacceptable and ultimately cost me 1500.00 for a new set of tires (NOT these). I cannot fathom why anyone would purchase any tire with such an unacceptable wear and noise factor. I would never purchase a set of Perelli’s again after this experience. It’s no wonder new RRS’s do not come with these tires anymore. I suspect it’s due to all of the customer complaints.

  4. Garbage tire from day one and neither Pirelli and Volvo will not stand behind the product. Search the forums and you will find that many people had issues with these tires being out of round or having other manufacturing defects. Took my dealer quite some time to diagnose the issue and neither Pirelli nor Volvo will do anything now that we know the tires are the issue. So, my choices are to continue to use a crappy tire that vibrates during acceleration or replacing them for 1K with only 24K miles of use. Do yourself a favor…if you are considering these tires don’t. Absolutely a waste of money from my perspective. I am looking at Michelins when I replace these tires.

  5. Overall a good performing tire with decent all season performance but tread wear is more rapid than expected specifically inside shoulder wear which creates heel/toe wear and mild cupping on the front set of tires despite routine tire rotations. I have these tires mounted on a set of BBS RX wheels in the same size as my OEM wheel/tires and are only used during the winter months which makes the wear issue a concern as it’s occurring over a short duration of use. During the summer months I refit my OEM wheels and summer performance Michelin’s Pilot Sports which do not suffer the same wear patterns as the Pirelli’s. Switching between the Pirelli’s and Michelin’s for summer use it’s always a relief to get back on the Michelins as the ride is considerably more comfortable and quiet despite the fact these are more performance orientated tires. The Pirelli’s do what is asked of them but rapid tread wear is an issue at least in the size specification and LR (Land Rover OEM) version I purchased from Tire Rack. Noise is also starting to become an issue as the tires wear but not to a point where it’s overly annoying but is certainly noticeable when compared to the stock Michelin’s which came with the vehicle.

  6. With regular rotation and proper inflation, each tire’s tread has nearly worn all the way down to the treadwear bars at 36,000 miles. That’s unacceptable. They’ve become noisy too. Traction remains fine, but my wife and I both drive conservatively. Consumer Reports recommended this tire. Thumbs down as far as I am concerned! I like Hankook Optima tires…but maybe I’m the only one?BTW – I can’t stand runflats (cost, noise, poor traction, and short life expectancy). Run flats are often OEM. We have two AWD Sienna vans. Both have all-season radials and each has a full size spare chained securely to the floor behind the 3rd row.

  7. Purchased the Macan S with 12,000 miles and OEM tires in May of this year. I live in Seattle so as Summer turned to fall and rain began, I started to notice some scary understeer in wet conditions. Recently checked tread depth and its 2.1mm at 20K miles. I can’t imagine summer tires would wear faster. Installing Michelin Pilot Alpin 5 for the winter. Will find a better tire come summer than these Pirelli’s.
