Any of you guys run these tires in the 275/40 - 315/35 combo?

Thinking about getting them next spring. Wanted to hear opinions before I pulled the trigger for $1300 tires

I looked at em. Read reviews and passed. Better options for less money IMO. If you need an all-season, look at the Nitto Motivos. I got em in those sizes for around $900. Great tires.

The guy I talked to highly recommended the conti tires but I asked first for the nittos and he said those were garbage and would wear out real quick.

Those sizes will fit on the 20x9 and 20x10 wheels no problem with the nittos? And not damage the tc?

LOL well he certainly didn't have an agenda... definately clueless. The Motivos have a 60,000 mile tread-life. Contis are generally garbage tires..they are soft and have mushy sidewalls and crappy steering response. Tend to be noisy. They probably have a nice ride and the DWS are pretty grippy in rain, and not bad in snow. They also are quite wide(the 315s) compared to other tires of that size and may look bulgy on a 10 inch rim. See my thread on the Motivos.

I have them. They are outstanding tires. Great in rain and snow. Sidewall is a little squishy but I am not tracking the jeep so I don't care.

Best all season I've ever had.

So it's a little more comfortable ride?

I live in Chicago so I need a quality all season set. The only options I've seen in OEM size is the shityears and Nitto 420s. 420s I heard were garbage.
