A Combination of Roads for 5,000 Average milesLand Rover Discovery 2
I am very disappointed with the recently purchased replacement Pirelli tyres on my Land rover Discovery.
Following an MOT fail for a damaged tyre I decided to replace the damaged one and worst other and fit a pair of new Pirelli Scorpion S/T to have a complete set of Pirelli Scorpion S/T tyres all round.
As the old type of Pirelli Scorpion S/T are no longer available the latest equivalent was fitted.
A pair of Pirelli Scorpion Verde 106H tyres were fitted I was assured that these were the best tyres that could be fitted.
Unfortunately I have found the new tyres slip contently and lose traction on damp grass causing the traction control to work constantly ( vehicle unladen)
As there is no grip on the front tyres feels like driving on rims only
My questions are
Are these Pirelli Scorpion Verde 106H tyres correct for the Landrover Discovery 2001 TD5 ?
Will the grip get better with time?
Is it safe to drive on the motorway with a heavy trailer in the wet with the lack of grip?
Is it safe to drive on the road with a mix of Pirelli Scorpion S/T on the rear and Pirelli Scorpion Verde 106H on the front as it is skids constantly on grass.
