No All Season Tires Available for Quadrifoglio

To start off, We live in California where we do not need dedicated winter tires. This is my wife's daily and 95% of our driving through winter is 50-70 degrees, but we do have a cabin in the mountains and go snow skiing. So we need an all season tire to get up to the mountains. When we purchase the Stelvio we figured we would get through our first six months on the P Zeros and change them out to an all season during winter. Just an FYI to everyone out their who live in a climate like ours. Their are no all season tires available for this vehicle. Do your homework if you live in a climate where switching back and forth to winter tires don't work. We are having to look at either selling the Stelvio which we love or buying a dedicated ski vehicle. I wish I would have looked into this when I was purchasing the vehicle.

What are the tire sizes on it? I know the Quad has different front and rears.

I will ask my Dealership as I know they had some come in and in Alberta you would not be liking life driving on just summer tread. A all season is a min here to keep it on the road

Good question. I was wondering if anyone has swapped out stock QV summer tires with Pirelli Scorpion winter tires in stock front/rear staggered sizes on original rims, and how it's worked out in snow.

Fronts are 255/45R20 and rears are 285/40R20. I have looked everywhere online and talked to my local tire guy. The only thing I have found is mismatched brand of tires front to back. Anyone have any idea how the Pirelli Scorpions would work in the warm dry winters in California?

there was someone else here who was unable to get winter scorpions (sold Out) in the standard size - AR suggested slightly taller all around (50/55 series?).
that would get you into scorpion all seasons and likely others.

I have the winter scorpions, I expect they wouldn't last too long in your situation.
I also expect more tire choices soon as 20's are getting more common on sporting cars.

A simple call to Tire Rack will get you someone knowledgeable in alternate sizing. Best to go with other rims for winter use as the pretty Quad wheels probably won't fare well long term as well as requiring big fat meats

@harvest That's exactly what I did and it's worked out great, but as @lost1750GTV comments I doubt they would last long in 50-70 degree daily driving.

When I search tirerack.com it comes back with one set of Goodyear eagles RS-A EMT that are "high performance all season", but don't get good reviews. https://bit.ly/2GmwRvK So there are options, but not great ones, and it might be zip code depended. Sounds like a tough spot. I agree you should call tirerack. Hope you find something that works!

I’d give tire rack a call. They should be able to find something. In a pinch the extremely good Michelin AS3+ is available for the fronts and the 275/40R20 *should* fit on the back. I’d personally get some nice beater rims for winter in more readily available sizes. You have a quad, the cost is negligibl for separate rims compared to hitting something on summer tires.

Winter Scorpions are a not TRUE winter tire IMHO as their weakness is the greasey, icy stuff ..the stuff where Blizzaks and DM-V3's excel. Having left a set on a vehicle for a summer, they wore like iron, not like a snow would in summer. The speed rating necessitates the rubber...Everything is a compromise. My next set of snows will go back to Muchelin X-Ice or Bridgestone DM-V3's....maybe Nokian if I can find them. Not super impressed withe Scorpion Winters for my wicked cold, greasey needs. Even on a Range Rover Sport they do not inspire confidence in the truly ugly.

"Everything is a compromise."

so far this south of Boston winter, I'd say they are a really good compromise for here.
we've gone from 0 f after sow then freezing rain to 50 + now, have had a heck of a lot more rain than snow - I've "tested them in all haha
and the wife was very happy with them and the quad on absolute ice, sooo ...

people north of boston get a lot more snow and cold, and may prefer a "nordic" pirelli ice or other brand, some may prefer a tire that's best in the worst they are likely to encounter - but I'm after really good in what I'm most likely to see most often.
