I have a '01 V70 XC and love the Pirelli Scorpion S/T tires. I bought
another set when the first ones wore out. They get good gas mileage and
both outstanding wear and outstanding traction, unusual for Pirelli who
is famous for making good rain tires the don't wear well on dry
pavement. The noise is dependent on the road surface. But the noise is
also aggravated by the stiff suspension of the XC70.
