Pirelli Scorpion STR is a highway all-season tyre that strikes a balance between off-road and on-road performance. Mounted on light trucks, SUVs and crossovers, the Scorpion STR meets the parameters of the new and powerful generation of modern 4x4 vehicles.
Pirelli Scorpion STR has a North American twin - the STR A. While STR A is distinctly North American with broad shoulders and an aggressive tread design, the Scorpion STR is vintage European with rounded shoulders and open tread design. An all season tyre, the Pirelli Scorpion STR sports a symmetrical tread pattern that offers comfort and ensures good mileage. The tread pattern features a center rib which is flung along by deep circumferential grooves. The lateral grooves drain through the independent blocks and rounded shoulders, giving the tyre utmost resistance to hydroplaning and excellent wet traction. The symmetric pattern with criss-cross like grooves ensure safety, stability and also even tread wear. Though a 4x4 tyre that is suitable for SUVs, the Scorpion STR delivers ultra high street performance, meeting the best-in-tradition standards of off-road safety and balance, without compromising on comfort. In brief, a tyre that offers precise handling, cornering stability and exceptional wet traction.
Pirelli Scorpion STR is an all-season, all-terrain tyre which delivers dependable performance even on snowy or icy conditions. Ideal for long distance on road and off road driving, the Scorpion STR has twin, high-tensile steel belts reinforced with polyamide on top of a two-ply polyester cord body. This sturdy inner build cushions the ride, making it quiet and comfortable even on rough terrains.
