SPORTS PERFORMANCE ON ROAD AND SAFE DRIVING IN OFF ROAD CONDITIONS
Engineered for high/sporty performance on road and safe driving in off road conditions. The attractive tread pattern makes it the ideal tyre to combine with personalised wheels for a striking aesthetic effect. Ideal for drivers seeking higher levels of grip and precise steering response.
The new Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico is built with Pirelli's newest evolution and sophisticated MIRS process - Modular Integrated Robotized System. A tire dedicated to the most powerful light truck and SUV's, it offers increased safety margins while enhancing the driving experience.
Full and compact external shoulder blocks increase dry handling performance and safety, while the inner shoulder with its deeper and more regular cuts is geared towards maximizing traction.
Low acoustic noise, high percision at high speed and excellent grip when braking thanks to the solid center rib. 4 Wide longitudinal grooves for water evacuation of the foot print increases safety and wet performance.
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.

25.11.2015fromGary Zecca Only one tire. Was very difficult to get balanced. Had to balance 4 times
06.03.2014fromJohn Simpson This is my second set of these tyres. Great dry grip and good wet grip. However once they get down to 4mm these do need to be replaced but for normal they are good fro at least 25k miles
18.12.2010fromA Mason excellent tyre. Had no problems on icy/snow roads that other cars were caught on - hill starts not a problem
23.07.2010fromMichael Davis Relaced originals with same. The tyres and the service with Mytyres / Delticom has been par excellance.
