The Pirelli Scorpion STR A is a highway terrain all season tire manufactured for light duty pickup trucks. The STR stands for Stability, Traction Rating, while the A notes that the tire has the Northern American variation of tread pattern on it. Pirelli offers a 65,000 mile warranty for this model.
This tire offers a quiet and comfortable drive. The tread patternâ€™s continuous shoulder rib reduces the road noise heard in the cabin of the vehicle. The lowered noise levels are the result of the center rib channeling the soundwaves through the tireâ€™s tread grooves, eliminating the noise the tires make in the process. This aspect of the tread pattern enables the tire to follow the road surface well, lowering the vibrations felt by the passengers.
This model has great all weather traction due to the silica-based tire compound. The tire grips the road well in dry, wet and in light winter conditions. The special tread pattern, with its circumferential grooves, eliminates water from under the footprint and helps resist hydroplaning. The tire is safer to use all year thanks to these features.
The tread design is molded into a symmetric pattern. This, along with the equally distributed driving force, prevents irregular wear along the tireâ€™s tread area and slows down the overall wear rate of the tire. The tread life is extended because of this, making the tire more cost efficient and economic.
The tireâ€™s internal structure is reinforced with steel belts, which provides additional strength and durability. This allows the tire to carry slightly heavier loads, making it excellent for light duty pickup trucks. The special structure and the tread pattern, with the continuous center rib, greatly improve the steering precision, while also offering better road feedback.
The Scorpion STR A can also handle slight off-road surfaces. The special reinforced structure enables the tire to have good traction in some off-road conditions, making the model more versatile. This is also due to the enhanced steering response time, which improves the control the driver has over the tire and shortens its braking distance. Its braking becomes more powerful, making it safer to use.
