Pirelli, maker of tires for all manner of fast and capable vehicles, has introduced the third generation of Scorpion AS Plus 3, which not only promises better treadwear, but also better mileage. The Milan-based outfit is the seventh biggest tire producer in the world, but its reputation for supplying stock tires on most supercars precedes it.
Unlike the P-Zeros on those sports cars, the Pirelli Scorpion tire’s fitments include SUVs, CUVs and pickup trucks that “are looking for peace of mind in all weather conditions.” The AS stands for all seasons and they come with a 70,000-mile limited treadwear warranty. The new tire is available in 37 sizes, from 17 to 22 inches. Major fitments include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Honda CR-V, Toyota Highlander, Ford F-150, and Kia Sorento.
