The Pirelli Scorpion Verde is a summer tire that has been tested by various organizations such as Autobild and Vibilagre. In these tests, the tire has showcased several commonly mentioned qualities.

On the positive side, the tire exhibits well-balanced driving performance both in off-road conditions and on wet surfaces. This means that the Pirelli Scorpion Verde provides good grip and stability, ensuring a safe and comfortable drive in various road situations during the summer months.

However, there have been some drawbacks reported in the tests as well. One of the concerns is the extended braking distance on wet surfaces, which can be a safety concern for drivers, especially in sudden braking scenarios. Additionally, the tire has shown a slightly delayed steering response, which can impact the overall driving dynamics and precision.

Another negative aspect mentioned in the tests is the slightly understeering dry handling. This implies that the tire may not provide optimal cornering performance or steering feedback when driving on dry roads. Despite these drawbacks, the tire has showcased its ability to perform well in various off-road and wet conditions.

In conclusion, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde is a summer tire that has both positive and negative qualities. While it offers balanced performance in off-road situations and wet road conditions, it may not provide the best braking or handling characteristics on dry roads. Buyers should consider these factors when making a decision about purchasing this tire for their vehicle.
