Pirelli today unveiled their new Scorpion All Terrain Plus performance tire in Las Vegas at the SEMA show.
Replacing the Scorpion ATR, the new All Terrain Plus is still all about maximum performance for demanding conditions, but this updated version features a new generation tread compound and an aggressive design to better conquer uncompromising terrains ideal for light trucks and SUVs.
Main features: Better look, new tread compound
The new Scorpion All Terrain Plus garners a more aggressive look and style compared to the outgoing Scorpion ATR with a more pronounced tread pattern and upper sidewall design. More importantly, Pirelli’s new rubber functions better as well providing more balanced performance for off-road and daily driving needs. The new generation thread compound is optimized for durability, wear, and traction while offering higher resistance to those frustrating cuts and chips of the tread elements.
