who needs a snowplow when you have an SRT ---
Hi there,Hi Folks
I have a 2014 SRT w 20k mi
My tires are about done and yesterday I was driving I-70 in Colorado and was slip sliding much more than other cars
Tire rack recs the pirellis in stock size 265/50R20 super pricey and wide
I dont want to get extra, narrower rims, trying to have less stuff these days since Im moving around a lot
Looks like people are using the cooper setup on the stock rims 265/50/20 since the arent that much $
Cooper Tire & Rubber Company - Weather-Master WSC?
and yoko also makes a ice guard tire in the same size YOKOHAMA ICE GUARD IG51V
Has anyone used the yok setup? (Im assuming max rec rim width is 9.5)
With the 265 tires (cooper or yok) on stock rims, how much more exposed to rash?
(Ive already rashed up my rims with the stock tires)
PS pic from yesterday at A-Basin
O hail the tire master!Nobody reads the posts or listens anymore. Three season Pirellis will kill you under fifty degrees period eventually if you're a gambler have at 'er. 265s fit fine on our 10" stock rims even though the spec is 9.5" max rim. I've run the Toyos the last two years and they are champs and look almost as wide as the originals and are the same overall diameter and don't throw your speedometer out of whack for those of you who don't have a Trinity to correct. I know, I am a self proclaimed tire specialist, no, really I am, and was in the tire business for years. Hard to believe the amount of tire discussions here, all good fun, especially about the lesser quality, cheapass crap tires on an eighty grand muscle Jeep.
I'm running to Toyos too and the last two days we've had snow and the SRT has been a beast.Yes, all bow to the tire master! Ever wake up on a Saturday morning tangled up with the gf and then feel ready to rule the internet?! Lol.

I run the Toyo GS5 Observe or whatever and I know the Yokes are premium ice and snow killers too. I'm just having fun.
