No they weren't run-flats. I used to have the stock Duels (sp) on my MO, when I went to Envigors I noticed them being louder from the start, but as I got to 80,000k on them they were more noisier. Now with my new Mich's all I hear is the bumps in the road and no tire to road sound.

Tried my LX20 in the wet and they are impressive! Especially braking or accelerating hard from a stand still as if on dry pavement. Handling is quite good too; overall it reminds me of the Yokohama V4s I had on my 2008 Impreza replacing the awful OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE92A...

I had to do a panick stop on dry pavement last night and I was impressed with the short stopping distance. Handling on dry pavement is average as mentioned by CR and Tirerack but that's O.K. as I'm not an aggressive driver and this ain't no sports car either; perhaps inflating the tires a few PSI higher would help at the expense of ride quality. Bottom line, very happy with my new rubber!


Much better than Dueler 422 Ecopia I had on my 2012 RAV4, what a disappoinment. Would love to try Scorpion Verde All Season Plus for fun on another Mo...or another similar vehicle.

Got a set of Nitto tires Motivo. Coming from Michelin tires, I would say it performs almost the same, but for a cheaper price.

Performance doesn't mean as much as tire life. I going to be the Mich's will last longer than your Nitto's. And remember when buying a tire, you get what you pay for does apply big time!!

I have a 2016 Platinum with the stock 19inch wheels with the stock bridgstone dulers I want to switch to 18 inch wheels and new tires. Suggestion on smoothest tires, only need summer tires. also advise on the TPMS sensor switching. What to do to make sure the system will still work. I could use some advise on bolt circle diameter, offset, rim width, etc. The whole exercise is to improve the ride. thanks Gripper Don

We have the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus on our 2011. Best riding, longest lasting tire I've ever owned. Haven't needed rebalancing in over 30k miles.

Another vote for this tire. I ran it on my 07 and it was a great performer, quiet, and good handling.

I bought the Michelin Latitude Tour HP tires last summer and they have been great. A great site to look at is Tirerack.com people who have these brand of tires and others have added their 2 cents as to how they have performed overall. I seemed to recall the Pirelli Scorpion Verde not performing as well as the Latitude Tour HP over all, I haven't checked in a while.

Good luck!

Looks like the Michelin Premier LTX is the tire this year.

Don't confuse the Pirelli Scorpion Verde with the new Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus. I had the regular Verdes' and the upgrade to the Verde Plus was definitely a nice upgrade.

I am not confusing them. I the normal Verde had a great rating when I bought my AVID Envorg's many years ago but cost an arm and a leg to get. After my Envorg's wore out I checked Tire Rack again and the old Verde had a much lower rating than Latitude Tour's. I don't even see the plus's then and now, and I don't even see the old Verde tires now, I guess they just can't compete with the newer tires of today.

Thanks,

I just bought a set of the Scorpion Verde AS Plus, back in October. Tire Rack and this forum helped me decide on them. After 7500 miles, I don't regret the choice. Got the full set for $600 USD.
