An all terrain tyre, for use on all surfaces: versatile in all situations with excellent off road capabilities.
Off road it is tenacious and reliable. On road it provides comfort, excellent traction and resistance to wear.
Scorpion ATR is the technological footprint on the ground for extremely versatile and powerful vehicles: thanks to its reinforced structure and very unique tread design Scorpion ATR makes light work of driving these vehicles on rough terrain. Excellent traction grip on every surface, reduced aquaplaning, top braking efficiency, and the highest resistance to damage, while providing easy comfortable driving on normal roads.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

15.10.2015 from Annette Grey These tires have been on my Hummer H2 (Optimus Prime) since 2006. They were replacement tires I purchased. The Pirilli Scorpion ATR tires are impressive and outstanding performers. You should see Optimus Prime transform down the sunshine state highways on these Pirelli tires.
18.12.2014 from Mike Solid Tire. Have not been tested in the snow yet
12.10.2012 from Dimitri Good all around, although a 50/50 on/off. Driven mostly on road, but also off road. Worked well in mud and fresh, cold snow. Only time I got stuck was on soft, spring snow, the tires had already close to 40000 km. Had them for 4 yrs + 1 yr from production date when purchased. They still maintain good tread, but rubber is now tired.
09.05.2012 from GBC This is the second set of Scorpion tires I have purchase, both sets have gone on Jeep Cherokees. They are a great tire for the price, decent for HW/snow/off road. I wouldn't go in the mud though.
