Re: 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor (pics)

Any updates on MPG or still no tracking? If you don't mind, check your EVIC MPG. I realize its not acurate as I don't know how it compares to when you have the previous stock tires but I'd like to see if its 10-11 or still 13-14. If you don't mind please tell me roughly what your split is between HWY/CITY driving in a percentage. 70/30 50/50 etc

Thanks very much!

Trying to pick between
Copper ZEON LTZ
Copper DISCOVERER AT3
Goodyear WRANGLER Silent Armor

Not sure yet, however it started March 4th, for a month or two the SA Goodyears are on rebate, 80 more bucks back when you buy four. Not Sure though, trying to find something more aggressive, good in the snow etc compared to the OEM tires but won't take away 1-2 MPG, I mean 1-2 isn't much but it adds up over 22 gallon tank refills. I already only average 12-14 and drive lot. Lack of options in 20" size, let alone the actual OEM size has next to no options.

J13ntv, why are new Nokian Rotiiva AT's not on your list? They have snowflake/mountain symbol as GY SA have.

How about MT Baja STZs? Look like a good choice to me. About the same money wise as the Silent Armors. MPG is a concern, but traction is a bigger one IMO.
