    Tyre porn

    Just had the new Pirelli scorpion rally STR fitted today in anticipation of some serious bendies and a bit of off road, black mountains in France and the peaks of the Pyrenees into Spain Will be interested to see if they are better, less noisy, longer lasting than the anakees I had before!
    Cheers Simon

    I will be interested to see how you get on with these, as I am thinking about switching to them after my Anakee 2's need changing.

    They do look good

    Can't see how they can be better than Mk 1 Tourance for dual-duty.........
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    Will be back in two weeks, I will let you know how I get on , just from coming back from the garage I noticed they turn in a lot quicker, they don't drop and turn , they just turn quickly,mind you my anakee 3's were pretty square after 4,000 miles still had tread left but not very nice handling!

    That doesnt look to have much tread depth for a new tyre, or is it illusion.

    I'd reasonably happy with 4000miles (6000kms) from a rear tyre and twice that from a front.

    I don't have them but looking to get them. They are not deep tred pattern, I think about 9 mm someone said. They are great on road and trail but not a mud type trail.
