New tyre time - Verde or Zero PNCS?

I’m running 21” Pirelli Scorpion Zero Noise cancelling tyres at the moment but had a puncture in the shoulder on the rear last week.
The spare wheel has a new Scorpion Verde fitted. I bought this wheel and tyre separately to the 4 and it was a bargain. I don’t think it’s ever been on a car.

I could really do with replacing all 4 now as they are starting to wear and the MOT station pointed out a cut in one of the front ones.
The Verde are a lot cheaper than the Zero so I’m wondering what you fine people think of them and how do they compare? 2010 MY Vogue SE TDV8 3.6 Stornoway Grey- fully loaded

I recently replaced my Scorpion Verde's with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV. I found them better grip in the wet and was lucky to hit a flash sale at Blackcircles and got 15% off.

I was going to stick with the Verdes on mine, but these are cheaper and three peaks rated, I’m tempted…

I got the Pirelli Scorpion SF2 (19") on mine since last December and am very pleased with them.
Lovely quiet they are too.
Paid €200 per corner including everything.

I replaced Verdes with Zero and think the extra cost was worth it. Slightly quieter, more comfortable and they feel much better when pushing on a bit. MY23 Panamera E-Hybrid

P Zero PNCS on mine, 20K miles in and they've been superb. Great grip wet and dry, superbly quiet. Great tyres. I've done plenty of muddy-field work with them including towing and they've done that without any issues as well. 2012 (L322) 4.4TDV8 Vogue SE, RSE, Fuji White over Arabica.

Just be aware that AT tyres have less wet grip, as can be seen from it's D rating. They might also be a bit noisier, especially when part worn.

On the plus side though, they'll give you good grip in the slippery stuff, mud. wet grass, etc!

I can vouch for AT3s not having wet weather grip. I actually changed mine after an emergency stop, or should I say attempted emergency stop.
I have got Verdes and am delighted with them. Quieter and smoother than the AT3s as well

Many people like the AT3's because they are cheap and 'look the part' on a 4x4 and almost certainly have never had to do a proper emergency stop in the wet....... 2012 TDV8 Vogue (L322)

Ever tried an (attempt) at an emergency test stop with BfG M/T (m+s) tyres in the snow on a real Defender?
There comes a point where you'll ask yourself if it's worth it keeping your foot on the brake pedal Laughing

I'm curious?

What's with the messages containing just full stops? I see from the message just before this one, that Gremlin's post changed, but there's no mention that the post has been edited by the user themselves?

Didn't think Gremlin's post said anything contentious, so can't imagine a moderator has stepped in?
