Pirelli Scorpion Zero question

I am thinking of getting these tires for my Explorer but I don't like the yellow scorpion thats on the sidewall. Does the tire have the scorpion on both sides or just one? If its only on one, Ill get them and mount them with the scorpion on the inside. Those of you that have them, please respond. Thanks!

Do you still have the Scorpion's for sale? Are they the Scorpion Zero's and if so what size are they. I just got a set of 17inch Cobra R's so I might be interested. Also, how much tread would you say are left on them? thanks.

These are the exact tire size that explorer express runs on their explorer w/ the 1 3/4 drop. I am willing to let these go for 35.00 a tire. 140.00 total plus the shipping. This makes this a great deal still being that there are a few years of tread left. The first one that says they have money on its way can get these. There not hard to ship at all.

What PSI do you guys run in these tires. I have them and the shop put about 45 PSI in them. They look fine and ride fine but I'm going on a 1200 mile trip this week and I want to make sure they are right. BTW, on the tire is says 51 PSI max.

45 is way too much.... especially if masx is 51..... basically in truck tires as an industry generis spec, most will be bettween 30-35 psi and that will be on a tire with a max pressure of 50..... 45 is too close to the max of 51.....

Here's a suggestion for the neat freaks... when you have the Zero's mounted, have the little yellow Scorpion's mounted near the valve stem. Looks much better.

Do you want to sell just one of those rims there..eh?

I need a nice full size spare and it sure would look nice on those rims that match mine.

If not that is cool.

If I could get enough buyers to buy the other 3, then Id split them and sell you one.
