Repalcement Tire Recommendations ? Non Run Flat

Add me to the list of those interested in thoughts on replacement tires. I have the OEM all season Pirelli on the truck right now, they will probably require replacement at about 20k miles

These are some nice looking tires IMO but they are 3 season.

Yeah as much as I love the P-Zero 3-seasons, I'll focus on these Yoko's as well; for almost 1/3rd the price -- since I'll have "slicks" @ 10k miles, given what I'm seeing @ 6k. My Touareg's ate tires; settled on Yoko Envigor's as my best option, after trying several (2x) more expensive tires that performed no better and wore or "cupped" to the point they were unbearable, etc., way too quickly.

BTW: you guys must be babying your GC_SRT8's; getting 21-23k miles out of the OEM's

Repalcement Tire Recommendations ? Non Run Flat

Replaced all my OEM Verdes at 21k miles. Half of those miles were long highway trips. 4 new Verdes shipped, mounted, and balanced for $1,400.

The OEM 3 seasons should be good for like 15k miles. The Verdes like 30k.

I looked at other options and sizes for the factory wheel. I liked the OEMs and stuck with them.

They were the Pirelli Verde all seasons not the 3 seasons

Replaced with Hankook Ventus ST (non run flat) - I have tow package so it comes with full size spare

Ride is much improved and no offset in handling noticed - Discount tire two days to my door from order $171 per tire

Have had runflats on 3 BMW's and am not a fan

I would definitely go with those for a 3 season tire replacement.

I have the tow package and do not have a full size spare?

I swear we all have the same spare regardless of factory tow option or not. The same black steel wheel with a temp tire on it. Full size meaning its the same diameter, not a little donut spare. I think sum guys may be thinking its a OEM wheel and 295 tire on it. That wouldn't fit in the cubby, plus the price for that option would be like $1500. The whole tow package is like $1000 or something.

Spent a few hours this morning researching non-run flat tires for my 2012 SRT8. I think I'll go with the Toyo Proxes STIIs in the stock 295/45 size.

I made an Excel file with 10 options I was looking at showing all the details. I've uploaded it to my Google acct and made it available for downloading. I may add more later but for now I think I feel pretty good about the Toyos. Here's the link to the Excel file.

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-16...FETXo2Xzg/edit

I would like to hear about (and see) any alternative sizes others are using. I briefly considered 305 and 315 widths. But without actually seeing what they look like on the wheel I'm going to play it safe with the 295s.

Jake

P.S. First post.

Thanks for the file; other than price; what's more compelling about the Toyo's vs. Yoko's?
