Designed for winter use, the Scorpion Ice & Snow stands out due to its excellent handling and supreme driving comfort. When driven on road, it promises excellent grip and low noise levels during low temperatures, even through water or on snow. Characterized by an elegant tread pattern with an asymmetric design. The wide longitudinal grooves and angled tread blocks ensure the most demanding driver remains in full control, even in the most complex weather conditions.
The Scorpion Ice & Snow tire features a tread rubber compound that remains flexible at lower ambient temperatures to enhance grip and handling in typical winter conditions. The tread compound is molded into a subtly asymmetric tread design that features a stable shoulder area to enhance dry road handling, circumferential grooves to provide hydroplaning resistance and help maintain good traction on wet and slush-covered roads, while angled independent tread blocks with circumferential and lateral sipes help the tire bite into snow. The Scorpion Ice & Snow winter / snow radials meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.
Pirelli tires has a quite stiff construction and does not usually require higher inflation pressures. It is designed for use at a pressure of approximately 2 bar, to be adjusted according to the type of car. The figures indicated refer to the “operating pressure”: the pressure of the tire when it is fully warmed up to working temperature. For accurate calibration, it is essential to consider that the difference in temperature between a “cold” tire and a “hot” one is quite significant, normally 0.5 bar.
Pirelli recommends the use of ordinary compressed air to inflate the tires, provided that the above procedures are followed. No special gases, such as nitrogen, are required unless the source of air is exposed to excessive humidity.
Always use a high-quality air pressure gauge in order to obtain reliable results. We also recommend that the valve stems of the wheels should be metal, instead of rubber, as they are more resistant to high temperatures.128.22 361.18
