Pirelli Scorpion ATR Plus

I have these tires coming this week in 225/65/17 for my Trailhawk. These tires are so new they don't even have any reviews on TireRack for any vehicle. Bug promises though by Pirelli and great reviews by professional reviewers... for what that's worth. Guess I'll be the Guinea pig. They "look" great though 😉

Nice! I'd be curious to hear your opinion on them after you get them installed. I have the exact same plan for my Trailhawk once my Falkens wear down.

I want to install the same set and size of Scorpion A/Ts on my 2017 Trailhawk with stock 17 inch wheels.. Will they fit without spacers or rubbing issues? Thanks.

Hey Pavia. Did you ever get these tires installed on your TH? I'm deciding between these and the BFG KO2 as they both have the most aggressive tread and sidewalls compared to other brands in a 225/65R17. The BFGs were essentially the only choice if you wanted the most aggressive look but now we have the Pirellis as an option. Also, looks like the Pirellis are only 29lbs a piece which is about the same weight as the stock Falkens I currently have on my TH versus 41lbs for the BFGs. That's a significant difference. I don't go offroad often but would like a good offroad tire and the Pirellis seem to be a good option. Plus they come with a 50k mile warranty and are about $50 less per tire over the BFGs. Would love to see some pictures if you could share some. Thanks.

Very interested in this as well, as these are the same tires (and size) I'll be going with for my TH. I like that the tread falls in between the G015 and KO2 (aggressive wise), yet weighs the same as the G015 (30/lbs ea). I like the KO2's also, but a 40 lb truck tire with 5 ply sidewalls is total overkill for a Renegade's ability.
The AT Plus looks like it's the "sweet spot" for me.
Looking forward to the pics!

ETA: Toyo Open Country AT 225/65/17 is another option (in same, 30 lb, weight class).

Hi all I'm new to the forum and registered specifically for this tire information a couple days ago. I pulled the trigger and decided to be the tester since I still hadn't seen any pictures or reviews. I can confirm that the Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus in 225/65/R17 do NOT rub at all, do not require spacers, nor an additional lift on my 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk. Everything on my Trailhawk is stock except for these new wheels. They fit perfectly and again no rubbing, the Renegade now sits about 1/2 inch taller than it did before the tire swap.

Sorry for the poor quality pics, it was sunny outside and my camera on my phone isn't the greatest. They look SO much better than the stock Goodyear tires IMO. Much more aggressive. The pictures don't really do it justice, they look better in person. A BFG KO2 probably looks slightly more aggressive, but with these Pirelli All Terrain Plus it no longer looks like the Trailhawk is "squeezed into a pair of skinny jeans" anymore like it did with the stock tires.

I drove on the freeway and while there is SLIGHTLY (and I mean ever so slightly) more road noise than the stock Goodyear tires, but it's negligible and hardly noticeable unless you're specifically listening to compare it. They're far quieter than mud tires or other All Terrain tires I've driven on other vehicles.

Hey Paul, 1st, thanks for sharing and being the guinea pig. They look really nice and way better than stock. What a world of difference tires make. Yes, the BFGs may look slightly more aggressive but at an additional cost not just in $ but in weight and mpg so I think the Pirellis are a great option without losing that aggressive non "skinny jeans" look. Haha.

How's the ride? What PSI are the tires inflated to? Have you had a chance to take it off road yet? If so, how does it perform?

Ran outside to check, the Renegade's TPMS says they're all at 41PSI. I took them down a dirt road on the way home and drove onto a parking block to test for rubbing and none occurred. I won't be able to really go off road properly with steep hills, rocks, and finding proper lines of approach etc until about later this week maybe Friday or Saturday. With that said, the ride felt great. The best thing was feeling that little half inch taller. Makes me want to get the full lift kit, although I'm still iffy on that if it's really worth it since it doesn't adjust the suspension, just the body height.

After I am able to take it TRULY off road I will report back with an update on their performance in the field.
