Or something similar that's a 20 Inch Snow Tire? I may be getting these soon for my SRT and would like to hear some feedback from forum members before I drop close to a grand on these. Appreciate any input.:beerchug:

i dont know of any brands i mess with that make snow tires for cars over 17 inches. If pirelli makes some they , to my knowledge, about the only brand that does. I need some but i really hate pirelli :sad:

edit:well they do make em. 255-45-20. cant pull up under car but it is listed under all ice and snow tires sizes. Think its time for our tire vendors to bust out a group buy.
bet they aint cheap. only time to get good winter tires at good prices is pre summer

i'd buy blizzaks or winterfires any day of the week over pirelli but nowadays its all about throwing pride and brand loyalty in the trash if i can save a dollar. We need to bump this thread to discount or tire rack or whoever we got now and see what deals are out there

Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 with Uni-T in 255-45-20 :grin: http://www.bridgestonetire.com/tireselector/GlamourIndex_BS_EN.aspx?productID=-154

http://www.us.pirelli.com/web/catal...van/SUV_SCICE_WIN.xml&vehicleType=CAR-SUV-VAN

the bad thing, i dont know bout pirelli/ i have way more experience with bridge/firestone, is dependant on where you live it can be hard to run a winter tire. Blizzaks are loud as hell and wear quick on dry pavement so somewhere like where i live where you can go a month with no snow then get a foot you almost have to pull them on and off or get just one winter out of them :sad:

it's like that where I live... on really bad days I can just drive my wife to work in her car and leave mine at home... i heard the pirelli's are all around better on dry, wet, and snow...

I've even thought of just getting some new all season tires and taking a chance since this isn't my only car I have to rely on... my RSA's are kinda worn from numerous burnouts:cowsmile:

I only saw 255/50R20 and 275/40R20 as the 20" options ... neither one would be recommended for an SRT8 ... the 255/50's too tall and the 275's too wide for snow/ice driving ... like skating much ? :lol:


Johnny Vav has been using the Pirellis for the last 2 winters I think, and he's been happy with them on his 300 SRT ....

Patrick, you'd know who Johnny is if you ever came to any GTG's .... :slap:
