420s are not garbage. I had them before I got the Motivos. The 420s are grippy, handlle very well, and are good in rain. Not great in snow. People have said they wear out fast but I had over 30k miles on mine and still plenty of tread. I got the Motivos mainly because they are soooo quiet and they are better in the snow. Nicer tire overall than the 420s. Where are you getting your info? Nittos are some of the best bang for the buck tires around. Very high quality and performance.

The Motivos are a Nitto tire.

Sameo. I did like the 420s.....but yes the Motivos are a step above. Nicer ride, super quiet, and same grip. Steering response about the same. The 420s were a bit noisy and not too good in the snow. Cant beat the Motivo treadlife warranty either.

The comfort level between these tires and OEM is night and day. No comparison.

I am a huge fan of these tires and will without a doubt buy them again.

Do they come in our stock sizes? Staggered? Or do we need to universal the size off OEM?

Only stock sizes out there are the GY Runcraps and the Nitto 420s. Many more options and brands at the larger sizes. I went with the larger sizes to get the rubber I wanted vs being constrained by availability.

I went with Nitto Motivos after lots of research and consideration.

Here's a thread on all my data for sizes and diameter differences front/back on each brand:
