The Daytona's and R/T with Perf. Group package come with Michelin P235/55/18's. Stock R/T's come with Conti's P225/60/18's.SRT8Charger07 said:About the only "Good" tires that I found on tirerack.com are these: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...eSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&place=5#Survey
But they are not the same size that regular R/T's come with though since they are 235/55/VR18's so I am not sure how they will effect your speedometer but they are a size that is listed for a version of the R/T (Daytona or R/T w/ AWT Package) as per Cars.com when you build one online. I do tend to make my purchasing decisions based on other peoples remarks as to how they either loved the tires or really hated them.
I've been told that you should do all 4 tires if you're going to do the triple-tread. It's such an aggressive tread that ride quality and wear might be affected adversely if you just use two.Hemiready said:I may go with a more agressive "snow" tire as well and i'll take your recommendation Epoch.
Would it be a problem to only use two Goodyears on the rear (and the Michelins up front)
or do I need a set of four to insure no handling issues?
I know people that have them. They say you can tell a difference immediately, just driving in regular dry traffic. Then you get into a wet-driving situation and realize you can't hardly feel the puddles.Hemiready said:Kinda figured that. Thanks Epoch. Its not the money for the 4. I just anticipate some bozo scratching the rims when I go for the tire swap at the beggining and end of winter. I wanted to minimize my exposure!.
You really love those Goodyears huh? I drive a lot during the winter and to me good tires are worth the bucks. I guess I can try the Michelins at the first snowfall and see how I feel about them and then swap out when I'm sliding all over the road!.
As to whether or not I'll use them all year, I'll say: "Probably". Only reason I wouldn't is that I'm definitely going to get some cheap black steel wheels for the winter, and I might just want to have tires mounted on them all the time so I can slap them on myself in the winter, instead of having to have the 3treads mounted on different rims twice a year (too much money and time).Hemiready said:Epoch:
Are you just going to run the Goodyears all year round?
Sounds like for day to day driving they might be a good idea anyway. I had a small truck that handled like crap in the snow. I went out and out new tires on (Mchelins) even though they did not need them yet. Handled like a new car!
Haven't ridden on them myself, can't comment.Looks like a lot of those reviews claim there is a harsh ride from these tires?
About this ...Hemiready said:That's the mistake I made when I bought my car. Forgot to negotiate out the old tires and get a better set.
You might try doing that before the car leaves the store.
