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.
