Pirelli, parent company of Metzeler, is being bought out by China Chemical. While Pirelli has been world-wide for many years, more of the production is moving to China. Some have reported differences between Chinese Metzeler and German Metzeler tires of the same model. We don't know much about Pirelli Scorpion Trails--try it, let us know where they were made, and how you like them. It is an older model tire. Newer tire models are the Bridgestone A40 (replacement for Battlewing), Metzeler Tourance Next, Continental TrailAttack2, and Michelin Anakee 3. The newer tires likely have better rubber compounds, tread design, casing design.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
