7.5 Pirelli Scorpion Tires

I bought some wheels from a guy locally that were take offs from his import. They came with 7.5x16 Pirelli Scorpions. Trying to figure out if these are desirable to anyone? I looked on the deep search and found no mention of them and it appears they were not offered in the US, but I could be wrong. I do see lot of threads about XZL's.


Anyone familiar with these?

Decent tires. We're factory on D1 when they ran out of michelins. They do wear quickly though. You sure those are not retreads? They don't look like the scorpion pattern to me, but that could be because they are narrow.

I honestly have no idea if the are retread. I'll look more closely when I run back over to the storage.

Thanks for the background info.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that size still exists.
Tires look odd, almost as if they are remolds

Worn out along the center - overinflated.
