2020 TRD Off Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tires

I was thing exactly putting on the same thing on my brand new TRD Off Road Supper White, OEM wheels. It was between exactly two tire option's Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tires and Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 both tire on sale at Costco. Or at least the Cooper tires Discoverer AT3 4S or XLT. That's what I narrowed the tire for me. Regards Sal

I think all three would be great options. Go with whatever makes you happiest!

Hi all,

Last year I bought a (2019) TRD ORP and my intention has been to essentially turn it into a TRD Pro without paying the Pro premium.

Today my wheels came in so I went down to Discount Tire to have my stock wheels/Blizzaks switched out for the new summer set up.

I went with the relatively new Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tires in stock size and these tires are mostly what I wanted to post about since I haven't seen many people on this forum using them. I wanted a street biased AT tire that looks good, behaves well on the pavement and that would do fine for some very mild off roading. I don't go mudding or rock crawling, just a little running around the UT desert and dirt roads/fire roads for camping.

This is pretty much how Pirelli marketed this tire so I hope it will be a good fit, designed for a similar market segment as Nitto Terra Grappler. I don't want to start an internet pissing contest but frankly I just have more faith in Pirelli as a tire company than Nitto. I'm hoping the Scorpions have better wet handling than the reports I've heard about the Terra Grapplers. Time will tell, hopefully I'm right, maybe I screwed up - we'll see.

In the first 50 miles of mixed city and highway driving up to 75 mph I can tell you two things:

1. They balanced well - the ride is smooth, no wobble, shimmy etc.
2. They aren't a loud tire. Obviously this can change over time but right now they are no louder than the Blizzaks I had on over winter or the Bridgestones that came from the dealer.

Obviously I haven't had the chance to use them in varied conditions or put many miles on them so the jury is still out but so far I don't have any complaints. I'll try to update this as the miles increase but that will happen slowly, it's a second vehicle for me and my accord gets most of the commuting miles.

Here are a couple of terrible iphone pictures:




Cant go wrong with the TRD wheels man! Looks great!

Pirelli scorpion AT plus

I just performed first rotation (with cross). I first liked these tires in the rack at Sams club. The tire bead and sidewall were thicker than other tires also in rack, simply measured by hand with thumb on outside and fingers inside tire. Mine are P-metric 115T and are rated XL load, in stock size for my 2017 SR5. Compared to both my prior factory Bridgestone and Dunlop All Season tires I think noise is about the same. These feel much more"sure footed" on freeways, highways and in town. My use in dirt is limited to some short drives any tire can do, so I have yet to test traction in trail conditions, or snow. Weight is 1 lb more and gas mileage seems same as factory stock tires.
Very smooth at 85 mph and quiet. I air down on dirt and Pavement I use 32psi cold. I believe they are made in Brazil.
Very pleased.

Hopefully the Scorpions solved their flat spotting they were notoriously for. Apparently they would do it even parked out overnight, then would slowly pop back out while driving for awhile, the vibrations and slop non withstanding.
