Performance tire upgrade

It appears the Overland CRD comes standard with 265/50R20 BSW A/S LRR tires but for an additional $400 offer 265/50R20 Performance A/S. Can anyone tell me any guess what the difference or what tires each of those are? I am mainly concerned with highway mileage through all conditions including snow.

Below are the two tires. the optional Scorpion is very highly rated. and even the standard Ecoipia is far better than the fortera that came on it previous to 2016


Availability: Standard Overland/Summit; Optional- Limited
Size and Type: 265/50R20
Mfr. and Model: Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus Black Sidewall All-Season


Availability: Optional Overland/Summit/Limited (included with Summit California edition)
Size and Type: 265/50R20
Mfr. and Model: Pirelli Verde Black Sidewall All-Season

Re: Performance tire upgrade

We have the 18's on our Overland and recently replaced the stock Michelin Latitude Tours with the Pirelli Scorpion Verde. A noticeable handling difference on turn in and they are quieter.

I like them.....
