The Scorpion™ Winter is Pirelli´s Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow tire developed for the drivers of today´s powerful luxury crossovers and sport utility vehicles. The Scorpion™ Winter is the tire of choice for AMG, Audi, BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen and Volvo. It was developed in close collaboration with Porsche and Volkswagen, and works with the most recent traction control and ABS systems.
Ecoimpact icons branded on the sidewalls highlight the tire´s contribution to the environment with regards to energy efficiency, clean air and low noise.
Scorpion™ Winter tires are designed to deliver low-temperature wintertime driving performance by combining predictable handling on dry and wet roads with traction in snow and on ice.
Featuring a tread rubber compound that introduces a new polymer blend and a higher content of silica components, the Scorpion™ Winter enhances grip and handling in typical winter driving conditions.
The tread compound is molded into a directional design that features stable shoulders to enhance dry road handling, circumferential grooves to help maintain good traction on wet and slush-covered roads while circumferential and lateral sipes help bite into snow and on ice. Scorpion™ Winter meets the industry´s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.
Surprised to see all the negative comments about the snow/ice performance of these tires, as I've found them to be exceptional in these conditions. Excellent traction in both cornering and particularly braking, providing a high degree of confidence. I actually look forward to having a bit of snow on the less traveled roads as it's fun driving in it and pushing them to see what they'll do (though AWD quattro contributes).
The only complaint I have is with the road noise on dry pavement. Coming from 4 seasons with a set of Dunlop Winter Sport M3's on an Audi A4 (which are now on my wife's A4 for their 5th season with plenty of tread), these Pirelli's perform as good, if not better in the snow - but the Dunlops were much quieter in the dry. They may have softened down a bit now that I've hit the 2500km mark, but at speed over 100km/hr they give off an annoying hum I could do without. A bit too early to tell how the tread is wearing, but if the noise doesn't quiet down and the tread wear isn't as good, I'm likely to go back to the Dunlops when it comes time to replace these.

I'm very satisfied with these tyres, confort, snow grip, just perfect. I've done 4.800km so I can't talk about wear, but for now they are as brand new. They are very quiet on highway too. Will buy them again

Unstable on snow and ice, does not provide that feeling of being in contact with the road or in control. Pirelli tires I have used in the past grabbed - these tires slide and are unpredictable.
Aside from performance - the treadwear life expectancy on this tire is a joke. Two seasons on these tires, total winter driven KM's - 13k - tires are done. Never again Pirrelli...
