Scorpion Zero is a unique tyre in its category. It was created by blending the materials and technology of the legendary P Zero with 4x4 knowledge and the experience of the Pirelli Scorpion range. An ultra-high performance product with dual benefits: top performance and safety, whatever the terrain. Scorpion Zero is the only true 4x4 tyre with a 'V' speed symbol, for speeds up to 240 km/h (150 mph), and M+S marking: this means high performance under the most demanding weather conditions.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

07.09.2016 from john BE AWARE DON’T GET THESE TIRES!! ACCORDING TO PIRELLI THEY HAVE NO WARRENTY ON THEM!!!!
I purchased these tires for my wife’s suv. In 4000 miles these tires have worn down to 2/32nd in the rear and 6/32 in the front. My wife is the safest driver I have ever met, I assure you she isn’t drag racing her suv on the weekends. I have been forced to buy a new pair of tires, and have only had them for 10 months, which means another grand out the door. This is pathetic, and when I called Pirelli I was told that I have the Asimmetrico tires (which I don’t) then I was told all scorpion zero tires are high performance and offer no warranty at all, and the best they could do is offer me 10% off my next set of tires. What a Joke. I have 4 cars, three of which have Pirelli tires on them and once the tread ware on each of them warrants replacement I will not be going back to Pirelli.
06.07.2015 from Sean Great on-road tire for regular conditions. Wear was a bit more than I hoped for a large vehicle tire of this type.
11.10.2014 from Bob B Tires had 13k on them when we acquired them. They were not rotated in that mileage frame. We did rotate them every 7500mi after that. Dry conditions handled flawlessly, wet was good, felt in control at all times. Any snow over 3 could not be handled. Hence this is a 3 season tire not all season. Noise was not intrusive but noticeable at all levels. Could have gotten more mileage had they been properly maintained from the start.
