pirelli scorpion atr 20" tires

Ok, how bad are these tires? I know they have a tendency to vibrate for abit after truck sits. But are these things gonna put me in the ditch in winter?

I HAVE noticed a slight 'wobble' occasionally at highway speeds. (dry pavement)

I've assumed it's a weak steering damper? Any thoughts?

If my trucks sits for a few day and i take it out, its just like i read about, vibration, but it does go away. But ya, might take these off for winter.

Had mine on ice for the first time today. Not as bad as i thought they would be. with some weight in the box should do the trick. I will test it in the snow if we ever get any where i live.

Scorpions

I had Scorpions on my 98 as well and on my 07. They seem to be a long lasting tire, however the rubber compound is to hard for Canadian winters. Put 4 winter Blizacks on and the differance will be amazing.
