Repalcement Tire Recommendations ? Non Run Flat

21000 Miles and dealer recommends new tires

Do not want run flats as our SRT8's come with a spare - Didn't like them on my past BMW's and feeling the same about them on the Jeep

I see some have gone to a 305 width - Any issues with this ?

Open for suggestions

thanks

I got the Yokohamas off tirerack that are the same specs as the factory tires (295/45/20) and I am very happy with them so far. They ride much smoother and I think have more grip than the Pirelli 4 season tire

For the price of the spec x's I don't think you will find a better all season tire. I am very happy with them so far. The ride is night an day compared to the run flats.

Ditto. Having the Yokahama Parada Specs installed later today after 23,000 on the Pirellis.

I love the Pirellis, but just cant justify the price of the runflats when there is a spare. The Paradas get rave reviews. Will let you know what I think...

Wow; 21k miles -- did you have 3-season P-Zero OEM's? I'm @ 6k miles and starting to see the horizontal wear-markers in the large treads. I looked on TireRack.com; only see the original equipment tires @ $2k; nil other non-OEM options listed under the 12_GC_SRT8. I love the OEM P-Zero tires and like the fact they are "run-flat", as I don't want to mess with an inflatable spare, but expected 15-20k out of them.
