Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico Tire Review & Rating

Developed exclusively for high performance sport trucks, SUV’s and crossovers, the Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico from Pirelli is designed to provide precise handling and control in year round conditions, including light snow. Basically, Pirelli has taken the same elements from a high performance summer tire and built them into a sport truck application.

A unique all-season tread compound is combined with an asymmetric tread pattern toprovide enhanced grip and traction on dry or wet road surfaces. Notched outer shoulder ribs and larger tread blocks provide high performance cornering power and give added steering response and feel. You’ll find yourself feeling in control at all times throughout the speed range. Pirelli’s Z-shaped tread blocks further increase grip as well.

Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico from Pirelli Tires

When the roads turn wet or lightly snow covered, Pirelli’s four wide circumferential grooves and multiple sipes around the tread enhance traction and handling by expelling water from under the tire and reducing the risk of hydroplaning.

The tire’s solid center rib not only adds more stability at higher speeds and better braking performance, but it also helps to eliminate road noise to improve ride quality.

Inside the tire you’ll find two steel belts with spirally wrapped nylon to give added strength and reinforcement. Together they provide increased durability at higher speeds and promote more even treadwear. The Zero Asimmetrico is available in a wide range of tire speed ratings and sizes ranging up to 30 inches.

 Pros  
  • Outstanding dry pavement traction and cornering performance
  • Wet handling and grip are very good
  • Smooth comfortable ride
  • Tire is available in sizes up to 30 inches

Cons

  • Would like to see a little better treadlife

Overall Thoughts

For straight line acceleration, cornering power and braking performance, this Pirelli Asimmetrico ranks as one of the top tires in this class. The steering response and control on dry/wet pavement is outstanding. Although this is a sport tire, ride comfort is not that bad as well.

The biggest area we have found concern in would be the treadlife. For some drivers it has been an issue, but for others it has not. It really depends a great deal on your driving style. Naturally, traction on deep snow or ice is not going to be on the level of a winter tire, but it will handle lesser amounts pretty well.

Overall, if a high performance all-season truck/SUV tire is what you are seeking, this Pirelli model is a very good option.
