I forgot to mention that I was able to sell my tires to America's Tire. They gave me $50 per tire which I expected since that's what you got initially. Fortunately for me I didn't have to wait so unfortunately that meant I didn't get any extra discount on the trade in as you did. Thanks for the recommending AT. It helped lower my out of pocket cost.Could you please post a picture of the ply ratings? Also were you able to sell your tires to the tire shop? Price per tire?
After reading about the Scorpion A/T plus the 225/65R17 is rated as a standard load passenger in America. But has 2 steel plies and a similar load & speed ratings to a C rated LT tire. Maybe number of plies, materials or sidewall thicknesses determines this difference?
I can see the appeal of the Scorpion tires. Light weight for better MPG, quieter on pavement, aggressive tread, good mileage warranty, decent price tire, reputable manufacturer & looks kool, which is half the battle. Brand new to North America, available since early 2018. Seems to be the most well balanced tire for the weekend warrior that will fit a stock renny.
I can attest to the MPG drop of the KO2s from the stock Falkin H/T tires. Which was about 3 avg. mpg at first. Now that I have the pressure of the tires between 50-55psi it's only 1 avg. mpg loss. I already get **** mpg as I live in a metro area with lots of stop and go. Also they are fairly loud on pavement.
So far I have driven about 800 paved miles, 70 miles of fire roads with ease and done a little mudding near Rollins Lake California. KO2s do great in the mud around 30-35 psi.
Neebaum, If you are ever in Sacramento/Tahoe area HMU, there are plenty of scenic trails the trailhawk is perfect for.
