Just had all tires replaced. Had a noticeable vibration at speed. All 4 tires were road force balanced and the machine found one tire exceeding runout by almost more than double the recommendation.

All others are fine with no more than 3 ounces of weights.

Note the little red spring looking icon at bottom right.

I realize the post is old but will report that I had the OEM Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires until 55,000 miles without any issues. Performed well and were quiet right until the end.

The OEM Pirellis became very noisy. I replaced them with lots of tread. Stupidly, I bought Pirellis again. They were rated high on Tire Rack, so I thought maybe the "Plus" would be an improvement over OEM. These were awful. Two were replaced under warranty because they could not be road force balanced. All of them became so noisy with wear I thought the wheel bearings were bad. Whoop, whoop, whoop.

I replaced them, still with lots of tread, with Michelin Latitude Tour HP. Huge improvement. Easy to balance, quiet, smooth. A few thousand miles on them now. We'll see how it goes as they wear.

I have had them on my 014 for 10 k miles very happy low noise, balanced well when rotated, great in snow. So far so good. I saw some bad reviews when I got them but have been happy

As mentioned a couple of posts back I also had great results with the OEM Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus tires (in 20" size) on my 2014. Replaced them with Kumho Crugen HP71 tires, primarily due to the huge price difference. It's early days but after about 1000 miles and one snowfall, I am happy with my choice.
