Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow Tire Review & Rating

The Scorpion Ice & Snow from Pirelli Tires is one of the company’s high performance winter tires that is engineered to provide excellent winter traction regardless of weather conditions and low temperatures. Designed for drivers of luxury SUV’s, crossovers and muscle cars like the Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger, this tire is also built to provide higher performance on dry cold pavement, as well as added cornering grip.

The tread compound is specially designed by Pirelli to stay flexible in low temperatures so that you can expect no drop-off in performance when driving through all types of winter weather conditions.

Scorpion Ice And Snow from Pirelli Tires

Dry pavement handling and traction are enhanced through the tire’s wider footprint, outer shoulder blocks and softer compound. The squared shoulder block design adds ride smoothness and increased stability throughout the speed range.

Performance on snow, slush and ice is increased through 3-D cross-sipes on the tread blocks, as well as added circumferential grooves. They combine to evacuate water and slush from under the tread and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. The sipes and angled tread blocks provide additional biting edges for grip on packed snow and ice.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with nylon for a dded strength and durability. They also increase overall treadlife, which is an area that many drivers have commented on as being quite good. Pirelli has 15-22 sizes available on this model, and includes a limited lifetime warranty. It should be noted that Pirelli recommends installing the Scorpion Snow & Ice in sets of four tires only.

Pros

  • Snow and ice traction and handling is outstanding
  • Exceptional traction and grip on dry or wet road surfaces
  • Very good steering response
  • Ride comfort
  • Treadlife is very good
