Here’s another example of the Lamborghini Urus being "special"

The Lamborghini Urus is not your standard SUV so it’s not beholden to standard industry practices. That’s the case when it comes to choosing tires for the Lambo SUV. Whereas most tire makers prepare up to around two to three tire options for the standard SUVs, Pirelli doubled that number to six different tire options for the Urus to account for the SUV’s performance capabilities.

This led to the development of six different tire choices that fall under P Zero, P Zero Corsa, and Scorpion tires.

In all seriousness, we’re not being sarcastic when we refer to the Lamborghini Urus as a “special” SUV. It really fits the mold of one because it’s essentially a supercar hiding in SUV clothing. We can all agree on that.

By its nature, the Urus requires a special kind of attention, something Pirelli admittedly had a “technical challenge” dealing with. As popular as SUVs have become, there’s still only one model that counts as a super SUV. So Pirelli did the only thing it could do under this particular set of circumstances. The Italian tire maker developed a tire compound and tread pattern design that would be suitable for the Urus’ performance capabilities. This led to the development of six different tire choices that fall under P Zero, P Zero Corsa, and Scorpion tires.

According to Pirelli, the P Zero was designed for use in a performance environment.

According to Pirelli, the P Zero was designed for use in a performance environment. The P Zero Corsa, on the other hand, was developed for “on-track adrenaline,” which basically means that these are the tires that the Urus should use if it finds itself n a race track setting. Then there’s the “Scorpion,” which Pirelli describes as the most “extreme” set among the three tire options. If you ever want to use the Urus in the outdoors, this is the set of tires that you need to use. All told, Pirelli’s alloy wheel options are available in sizes ranging from 21 to 23 inches.

Pirelli hasn’t said how much a set of these tires are going to cost, but considering the vehicle that it’s going to be used on, you’ll need to prepare to spend well into the four figures for a complete set.
