Pirelli developed the Scorpion Verde as an All Season Run Flat eco-friendly tire, designed specifically for drivers of Crossover/SUV Touring, sports utility and prominent pick-ups. Drivers who are looking for better mileage and off-road performances without compromising on comfort and safety on all types of road surfaces during any weather condition can depend on the Scorpion Verde for just that. Pirelli uses its Self-Supporting Run Flat Technology, which boosts safety and convenience by delivering temporarily prolonged mobility if a puncture occurs causing full loss of air pressure.
With Perilli’s Self-Supporting Run Flat Technology, the Scorpion Verde can run for at 50 mph for up to 50 miles when punctured, unless specified otherwise by the vehicle's manufacturer for OE (Original equipment) tires. Every Scorpion Verde has the Ecoimpact* icons on its sidewall which is an indication that this is an environmentally friendly tire. When compared to Perilli’s former CUV/SUV tire lines, the Scorpion Verde is more fuel-efficient and reduces CO2 emissions than its predecessors. The Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat tire provides a combination of both dry and wet road handling, comfort, year-round capabilities to include all-season traction even in light snow.
Molding a silica tread composite into an irregular tread pattern, the Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat features an improved rubber-to-void ratio, an even contact patch that combines dry road traction, performance, and even wear. The four broad circumferential grooves allow for hydroplaning resistance that improves wet traction. The Scorpion Verde features longitudinal siping that offers crosswise stability when driving on loose road surfaces and high-density horizontal siping improves both wet and wintertime grip.
The internal structure of the tire consists of matching steel belts above a polyester cord body that offer strength and durability. The Scorpion Verde utilizes Pirelli's comprehensive mobility solution that is made possible by a MIRS computer-controlled robotized manufacturing system, which is a production process that guarantees reliability in the use of the added sidewall supports that deliver the self-supporting run-flat ability.
