The Pirelli Scorpion ATR tires that come on the 2021 F-150 were designed specifically for the truck.

They are available in 2 sizes: 275/60R20 and 265/70R17.

The ATR will also be the base design for a new range of Scorpion tires that will be coming

New Pirelli Scorpion ATR Tire Designed Especially For The 2021 F-150

Ford and Pirelli have been working together for over 20 years now, joining forces to fit over 15 Blue Oval models with specially-designed tires. The new Pirelli Scorpion ATR is the culmination of those efforts and has been designed using a number of innovations that help optimize the F-150’s performance. The ATR will also serve as the base design for a new range of Scorpion tires to come.

Pirelli and Ford have worked on the new Scorpion ATR for the last two and a half years through a rigorous homologation process, which involved co-design, prototyping, industrialization phases, severe indoor testing, as well as hundreds of hours of simulation and modeling. Pirelli’s engineers designed mold profiles specifically for the new F-150 in order to offer a maximum level of grip with improved rolling resistance.

The ATR’s dedicated tread design reduces tire noise by up to three decibels and features a new generation of tread compound to provide secure wet handling and snow performance.

To achieve these goals, Pirelli deployed its most advanced simulation and engineering tools to meet Ford’s demanding tire specification targets at every iteration of development. This digital and collaborative design approach significantly increased development speed and optimized tire performance, along with a reduction in the number of physical tires tested.

The Pirelli Scorpion ATR tires designed for the 2021 Ford F-150 are available in two sizes: 275/60R20 and 265/70R17.

This is very interesting because Prielli is also making specifically designed wheels for Rivian, which Ford has a stake in. I wonder if these tires were part of the same deal.

I think there's a strong possibility. Those tires for Rivian could find themselves on the electric F-150 as well.
