I had to change all four original Continental Contacts on my Freelander 2 at 33,000 miles and went for Pirelli Scorpion Verde - big £600 mistake! After just 13,000 miles (mostly motorway)they are down to the wear bars - the compound is clearly too soft for a 4WD and with such a short life span they are NOT 'green' . . . very disappointed.

Toyota RAV4

Reasonable ride and not to noisy.. Wear rate is incredible though ! My tyres have done 10,000 miles on a Rav 4 (Mostly motorway) and the fronts which are the driven wheels most of the time are 75% worn out !! Not a tyre for those who cover high miles !

Brilliant improvement in my fuel consumption since fitting these tyres 1500 miles ago. Up from 31mpg to 34.4mpg.

Last season I decided to replace rather tired Korean tyres and thought that I'd try these Pirellis in order to be ecological. As an experiment I bought two in April and ran them until September (about 5000 miles) before replacing the other two. They performed fine on wet and dry roads (didn't try them on snow) but when I checked them in September I was horrified to see that the two new Pirellis were all but bald (while the two older Korean tyres were still quite serviceable). I've now replaced all four with Coopers. Would never touch the Pirellis again, I'm afraid.

Scorpion ST
Good all-round summer and winter tyres. Not particularly high levels of grip, but consistent wet or dry, with an easy progressive slide. Good all-rounder on wet, dry, snow and twisty alpine tracks; but poor in mud, which is to be expected. Lasted 45k miles (down to 3mm form about 9mm original depth) Were very good value for money through small LR specialists - used to be even cheaper to buy in Italy, even though they were made in Wales. Have been through at least four sets of four on three LR Discos (a TD300 and two TD5s). However, now running Conti Cross Contacts UHPs on a VW, which are a vastly superior 4x4 road-only (no snow or mud) tyre at a vastly superior price!
