You can see my thread for pics and more info....I did lots of research and read a ton of reviews. If you want an all season that performs well in all categories go with the Motivos. I was the first here to get them and at least 5 others have since I did. Super quiet, awesome ride- soooo smooth and grippy and good steering response. Fine in the rain too. Snow is next up lol. BTW if you are considering the Conti DWS, these will kick the Contis ass on dry as far as grip, cornering and steering response, and likely equally good in rain/light snow.

Several threads and lots of posts on this. Short answer, as long as the front and rear circumferences are reasonably close...less than 3% difference you should be fine. Most tires people have gone with when replacing the stock GYs are well under that, usually closer to 1%. Read the threads on the tires and the reviews and make a decision. If you are looking for an awesome all-season, read my thread on the Nitto Motivos.

I have a 2010 SRT8 with the original Goodyear Run-flats. I hate them. They ride rougher than hell and if you punture them and plug them you void the high speed warranty. So I'm thinking about an all season tire. Members here seem to endorse the Nitto Motivos. Are these run-flats? For a spare are you using the mini compressor and slime kit?

Motivos are not run flats. Use the saved $$ for a AAA membership, 10 steak dinners at Mortons, and the roadside kit you mentioned. Read up in the tire forum on the options and details. Motivos were best for my needs for a daily driver (Warranty, sizes, all weather, rubber density/life). Run flats were just too much to justify the price for the benefit. I have a short commute in an area where a AAA tow is more practical than dropping the $$$ on run flats. Plus you're constrained to certain sizes if you stay with run flats.

With the Nitos you mentioned what sizes are you all going with? Still stag or all one size? Thanks going with them as I just can't take the crap years any more. I even have two new ones on the back that I am taking off just to go with a new brand and start from new. Either going to order from discount online from our forum or firestone has great match prices and life time wheel balance and alignments

Thanks Brothers. It looks like I need Nitto Motivos 275/35ZR-20 & 315/35ZR-20 tires. What can I expect to pay for these?
