Pirelli Scorpion STR
The Scorpion STR A & Scorpion STR tires are Pirelli's premium Highway All-Season tires that were designed to deliver the Stability, Traction & Ratings (STR) appropriate for today's light trucks by adapting their performance to the needs of sport utility vehicles, light duty pickup trucks & 4x4 vehicles. The Scorpion STR tires are designed to combine a quiet & comfortable ride along with ease of handling & year-round traction, even in light snow.

 

The Scorpion STR's tread compound is molded into one of two similar, but slightly different symmetric tread designs. The tires featuring Pirelli's North American tread pattern are identified as Scorpion STR A tires, while those featuring their European tread pattern are simply identified as Scorpion STR tires.

The Scorpion STR A tire's North American tread pattern features continuous shoulder ribs & narrower groves between all of the independent tread blocks. This type of tread design would tend to result in a quieter, more even-wearing tire.

The Scorpion STR tire's European tread pattern features lateral grooves through the shoulder ribs & larger grooves between all of the independent tread blocks. This type of tread design would tend to result in a tire with better hydroplaning resistance & wet traction.

On the inside, both Scorpion STR tires feature twin, high- tensile steel belts reinforced with polyamide to provide strength & durability on top of a two-ply polyester cord body that helps cushion the ride.

Depending on their size, the Scorpion STR Highway All-Season light truck tires feature either outline white or black letter styling. They are T- or H-speed rated (with one V-speed rated Original Equipment application) & are available in a wide range of 55- through 75-series Euro-metric sizes, P-metric sizes & selected LT-metric sizes to fit 14" through 18" diameter wheels.

NOTE: The Scorpion STR in the 215/65R16 98V can be used in axle pairs to substitute for the Scorpion ST in the 215/65R16 98H size on Volvo XC70 AWD vehicles.
