The ideal choice for SUVs, off road vehicles and light trucks. All-season safety with enhanced ride comfort, low noise level and high mileage.
The Scorpion STR has developed new performance levels which adapt to the modern and sophisticated technical parameters for the new powerful generations of light trucks, SUV and 4x4 vehicles. In the Scorpion STR you find the best tradition for ultra high street performance, with excellent balance for off road conditions. The Scorpion STR delivers a quiet and precise ride, provides superior comfort and ease of handling.
Tread pattern: the symmetric pattern assure comfort ,and also has as a consequence high mileage and uniform wear. Technically design for the highest Original Equipment Standards, and has already approved fitments on the latest light trucks and SUV's in the market.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

25.09.2011from French I chose these tyres as they were standard fitment for the rav 4, a more road going soft roader, I was looking for more even wear than the OE Bridgestone Duellers which seem to look tired after only 10,000 miles. Not a suprise as it is a more dual purpose tyre. What surprised me is the evenness of the wear, the last set was changed with an even 2mm right across the tread of all 4 tyres after around 17000 town miles. What also surpised me is how well they coped in the snow, the 2010 winter did not stop this car. It is hard to test handling and braking when you drive a cr-v but they did not disapoint.
31.10.2010from Kotrolos Propably the best tyre for SUV (70% on/30%off).
