Most of us want to spend our weekends playing in the dirt behind the wheel of a custom-built rock buggy or an aggressively built four-wheel drive with huge tires and massive amounts of articulation. Unfortunately, the majority of four-wheelers use the same vehicles that take them back and forth to work each day as their weekend off-road rigs or family getaway adventure vehicles. The new Pirelli Scorpion ATR tire is a great choice for the enthusiast who spends the majority of his time driving the streets, with the occasional weekend hitting the dirt.
Having spent time behind the wheel of a Jeep TJ equipped with these tires, we can tell you a few of the things we noticed. First, these are very quiet tires, which is refreshing when daily driving can be a chore. Second, on-road performance in both wet and dry conditions is great; we found the tires to grip the road with confidence at every turn. Additionally, in the dirt the tires planted themselves firmly on the trail and held traction through a variety of challenges.
These new tires are available in a range of sizes from 15 inches all the way up to 24 inches in both LT-metric and P-metric versions.
