Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Tire

Anyone use? Thoughts and/or opinions on it. Looking to buy in a couple of weeks. Any other suggestions? Pirelli is $157 at Tire Rack right now.

Your first question in the post was "Anyone use?" regarding the tire in question. I directed you to another member who recently purchased the tires. What more did you want?

Thumbs up

Just bought a set of Pirelli Scorpion Verde. Whole US is backordered with the MO size ( 235/65/18), so i went to the next best size without a price difference ( 245/60/18 ) - they had those in stock. I paid $820 OTD installed. ( in US ). I know the ideal upsize for our MO is 255/60/18, but those were $200 more because of the bigger tread size.
First 1000km is awesome. Super quiet, smooth, a lot more responsive steering, good spirited cornering. It has 4 big channels for water dispursion and it is awesome in rain ( drove 100 miles in constant heavy rain without ever feeling the tire braking contact with road ). I live in Ontario, Canada so we will see how it handles moderate to heavy snow in a couple of months.
It is #1 tire in its category, and Tire Rack rating is great for snow, but looking a the tread pattern I don't expect it to be on par with the ratings. I will find out and report soon.

Well. Lets hear it. What do you think overall? I am going to be switching, very soon, from the Yokohama YK520 (yeah, I know...)

After doing a LOT of research, I just had my dealer order me a set of the Pirelli Scorpion Verdes. I was able to get the OEM size thankfully. I'll let you all know how they are once installed. It was really a toss up between them and the Yoko pradas. The Verdes had a slightly better review and specs and longer lasting so...we'll see.

Resurrecting an old thread here, but I was looking for a good place to post my impressions of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus. I replaced a set of Michelin Latitude tires with the Pirellis based on the good reviews specifically for the Murano, and on the cost savings compared to Michelin.

First off, I would have gotten 45K + out of the Michelins except for the interference of a sizable chunk of metal. Good news is that I was very close to 45K so it was relatively painless to let them all go.

I've had the Pirellis - stock size, 18" wheels - for around 7K miles. During my daily driving of mixed highway and city they ride comfortably and quietly. Handling is nice. I'm a fairly mild-mannered driver so I can't speak for how it would handle for someone who considers their Murano a sportscar. I recently made a trip from Georgia to Pennsylvania, on all conditions of highway and with a good few hours of driving in heavy rain. The Pirellis did not disappoint.

They are also good-looking.

I agree. I have a Pirellis and they're quiet, traction is good and handling is decent for the Murano.

The tread doesn't look very aggressive. How do they do in the snow?

I've had the Pirellis now for well over a year and about 29k miles! YES we drive a lot..lol.

Love them. Great in all weather, never hydroplane in heavy rain and although I'll probably only get 35 to 40 k miles from them, thats not bad for an AWD vehicle. They wear evenly, are very quiet still, and handle very good. I'd buy another set.
