SUV and 4x4 All Season Premium Touring Tires Tire Review Highlights
A good tire and lasted me nearly 60,000 miles. When the treads did get uneven around 60k, the tires did get very loud and almost unbearable. Felt there was some tire tread left but had to replace due to the noise, far too annoying. Overall, it was a pretty good tire, in my opinion, and for most of their life, ran quiet. Could be softer on bumpy roads, drive firm on less than smooth roads. Would buy again at the right price.
Having to replace at just over 13,000 miles. Vehicle and tires are serviced at recommended intervals and kept at recommended inlation. No off-road use. Never had a tire sold with a new Mercedes (2019) loose tread requiring replacement at such low milage and little amount of time.

This is my 4th set of Pirelli Scorpion tires on 2 different vehicles. 3 sets were the Verde version and this last one is the a/s 3. The Scorpion versions were wonderful tires and thus the reason for buying Pirelli’s again. After a little over 5000 miles two of the four tires developed bubbles in the sidewalls. There was no wheel damage nor was there any visible damage to the inside of the tire. Pirelli would not replace the tires, stating that we had hit either a pothole or curb. I could agree with them if there was visible wheel or tire damage, but there was none. Their response seemed automatic…a bubble can only be caused by hitting something. Both my wife and I are careful to avoid bouncing off curbs, and we don’t have potholes in our area of TN. Very disappointed with Pirelli and will consider this incident when buying tires in the future.

I've put few thousand miles on these now so feel I can review them properly. I'm on my third Freelander2 but this is the first one I've had Yokohamas on. These tires were excellent in snow and ice, they're good in the wet and great in the dry. Compared to other a/t tires I've had, they're quite and comfortable. I have found them a brilliant road & trail tire, with only one real weakness, wet mud. These are a road oriented a/t tire and wet mud or wet rutted tracks will result in a call to the local farmer (luckily, that's my father in-law).
They're cheap, great on the road and adequate off it. BFGs they ain't.

TL,DR; Exceptional in snow, great in mud, loud above 50MPH, too soft for high-torque acceleration. Perfect tire for low temperature climates, less so for temperate. These are Volvo-homologated tires, but not EV-specific.
I initially reviewed these tires in September 2022, before the "heavy" (by our standards) snow season experienced over the 2022 UK winter. I said they were soft, likely prone to wear, and probably not great for an EV. I take all that back, with two caveats (different from my first initial review).
The tires, as you'd no doubt expect, excel in the snow. I drove over to Chipping Campden high street in the heaviest snow of the season and drove up that hill like it was a dry summer day. Compacted or fresh snow, the car just carried on. Couldn't be happier. From the review videos we all know this is a snow tire.
Mud is a similar story. I frequently walk my dog in woodland and open country, and parking is rarely paved. I've never been stuck in the mud, even with deep ruts and wet slurry for a surface. The wide gaps in the tire tread find something to catch and just pull on through. I'd be lying if I said I considered anything I do as "off roading" but I wouldn't be put off by a muddy trail or gravel track at this point. The car and the tire seem to be set for adverse conditions.
The two caveats: road noise, and hard acceleration. Above 50MPH there is a constant roar from the tires. It's an EV; I get that there will be more apparent road noise. But there is a lot of it.
Secondly, the front end feels very light under *hard* (maximum) acceleration. I don't remember what the factory-fitted Pirelli's felt like, but it's enough to make me ease off if it's not a dead-straight road. Again, bear in mind this is an EV; 0-60 in well under 5 seconds. It's a rare occurance to push that hard unless you're purposefully pushing the car to the limit. Normal driving the car is comfortable and well planted. Nobody drives TO THE MAX in every day conditions.
I tires for a car I don't own and driving conditions I very rarely encounter. They were the wrong tires for me. If you live somewhere cold, they might be the right tires for you. My next set of tires will certainly be EV-specific.
Use many off-road. Exceptional grip in sand. Several friends have Cooper tires on heavier vehicles. They recommend Cooper tires to me because of all around performance. So far very satisfied.

I live in the Cascade Mountains on a steep road, loads of snow in the winter. Really an excellent tire but disagree with some of the other comments on road noise and standing water/puddle performance. This could well be differences in vehicles or models though. They are really excellent in all types of snow except near slush that is sticky, "Alabama Red Clay" type cold slush, but most tires I'm aware of cannot be designed to shed it from the treads when it's like that. It essentially turns into a bald-like tire at some point in that stuff. Standing water and puddles in heavy rain - there is an aquaplaning tendancy at or near freeway speeds that can get your attention. There is more road noise I believe than my previous tires, but not a whole lot, and I do have a bit stiffer suspention being the Sport model Rav4 with the 6 cylinder and that sometimes has more to do with the road noise than the tires do. Traction in all kinds of other snow (other than slush) and even ice is really supurb and I'm real confidant driving them. The tire wear is excellent too, and I drive 100 miles a day round trip from snow country to the flat lands to work. They handled fantastic when on the interstate going over the pass, with compact snow on the road when a car drifted in front of me and I had to swerve around him aggressively. The tires to my surprise stayed pretty much tracked to the road with some release, but regripped almost instantly. I would recommend them for sure. I'm tempted to try the new 2023 Michelin CrossClimate2 Tire however after reading a few reports on them. They're supposed to be better at not aquaplaning but debate if should be leaving a known performer.
My 2013 Dacia Duster Laureate mileage 41,000 has the original tires fitted, Tires Continental Cross Contact LX M+S 215/65R16 98H.
My last MOT 30/03/23 I was advised tires will soon require changing. Owned the car from new, very reluctant to change, so it's new tires.
Wet grip is very poor especially on roundabouts. Won't buy again.
Had these fitted to my Nissan Pathfinder where my usage is 90% on road & 10% off. My on road is quite sedate as I stopped being a boy racer years ago. Nitrogen filled and rotated as per Coopers requirement every 8000kms to maintain their 100,000kms mileage guarantee. One of them shredded at 15,000kms having never been off road. After a bit of heated discussion with Cooper South Africa who were only going to contribute 85% of the cost, they eventually contributed the full 100%.
I've just had to replace all four after only 45,0000kms as they were down to the tread wear bars. ~ not even HALF of the claimed mileage. The guarantee isn't worth the paper it's written on and quite were Cooper pluck this mileage figure from is beyond me.
Would I buy them again? Certainly not.
Can I recommend them? No.
