Simple Tire Review: Pirelli Scorpion ATR Review

I put a set of Pirelli Scorpions on an ’08 model Honda CR-V and have since put about 13k miles on them. My experience so far has been pretty good, they’re a pretty comfortable and quiet tire, but they do lack in traction when it comes to wet pavement or snow. I live in Kansas City, and we do see fair amounts of snow here in the winter; the Pirellis get adequate traction in winter conditions, as long as you keep your speed down, but they’re not real inspiring. Of course, that might be a good thing, considering how many people get overconfident and drive too fast in the snow!

The Pirellis are excellent on the highway, with good road manners and a real solid straight-line feel. If you’ve got a crossover or small SUV that doesn’t go off road very often, you can’t really go wrong with these tires, IMO. Check out our video review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR.
