Hankook/Toyo/Yoko??

Looking for a performance tire to replace the OEM Pirelli RF. 295/45/20.
Generally use the car for longer highway trips, so a nicer ride. Also like to open it up around the city.
I dont really drive the Jeep in the deep snow, would like to be able to run it in cooler temps and maybe a light snow (should I get caught). Looking to not sacrifice the firm side wall for price.
With all the different reviews, Im torn between the Parada and the Ventus. I've read a lot of the posts, but still cant make up my mind. Prices are real comparable. Toyo is in 3rd place on my list.
HELP!? (thanks)

Hi

I have just ordered a set of 295/35 ZR22 Hankook S1 Evo2 SUV tires.
I will test this tires on my 2015 SRT.
Have heard only good things about this tires! I will see in some weeks when they will be mounted on my new Niche Intake wheels.

I have little patience. I purchased the Hankook Ventus. They were a couple dollars more than the Yokos and they do have a 50k mile warranty, which I am sure I will void some how.
I may start another thread with some feedback.

I ran those Yokohama's on a different set of 20's on my Jeep and on 2 FX35's and they were fantastic. I ran them all season long on all vehicles and never had a problem. I have had the Ventus ST as well but prefer the Yoko's. Long tread life too.

Had the Ventus put on today. The tread pattern looks aggressive, which really helped me lean that way.
I immediately noticed the steering wasnt as touchy/responsive and I do like that. Also, the wheels dont seem to grab and pull as much as those Scorpions.
I will drive the crap out of them for a couple weeks and give a little more feed back.
So far: 23 miles, no regrets!

They couldnt deliver the Hankooks so I went with a set Yokohamas Advan Sport V105 in 295/35 R22. They are brand new produced week 51 in 2016.
