    Pirelli Scorpion Verde 22" issue.

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Own a 2016 R Design with the 22" wheels & tires, discovered a bubble on the sidewall of one of my tires. I have 25k on the tires so it's not worth buying just one tire. In this size Pirelli is the only quality brand out there and the best price I could find was $1300 on Tirerack.com. Has anyone upgraded to a 285/35/22" tire, they have a lot more choices and somewhat cheaper. The 285 is recommended with a minimum of a 9.5" wheel where my wheels are only 9" wide. Any input would be appreciated!

    I know someone in So-Cal has swapped out for this tire but he didn't say if he purchased wider aftermarket wheels?

    22 inch tires.

    Price After Mail-In Rebate: $1,199.44 This is the current price from Tire Rack for your oem tire. By the way if there is still some tread on the tire with a bulge on the side, you may be able to get a replacement tire as that sounds like a manufacturing defect. That would lower your costs. They also show a couple of more expensive performance summer tires. As for the tire size requiring 9.5 versus your 9 inch wide rims. I would go to a really good tire place that specializes in performance wheels and tires. They should be able to advise you.

    Manny, I went ahead and ordered a new set of OEM 22" tires and wheels from Volvo. I ended up with the newer 6 spoke design which I like better. I had the old tires recycled and will be selling the 5 spoke 22" wheels.
