The 420S is Nitto's best all season High Performance tire, Like the aggressive look to them with the asymmetrical tread design which was designed so that the tread wears more evenly, a lot of positive reviews both online and from a close friend who owns his own shop. I asked him what are the best performance tires you got and he said flat out he's selling the 420S more than anything because people love them, I trust him too

Re: Coming Soon

Oh ok. Just curious cuz I'm looking at getting new tires as well and more on road and performance oriented.

I would just recommend going the factory tire size, 265/50-20. Or the next tire wider than that.

Re: Coming Soon

I went with the newer NT421Q over the NT420.

As to size, unless you want to deal with inaccurate speedo/odo, go with a size that has identical tire diameter to OEM 265-50-20.

Re: Coming Soon

I used to have the Nitto 420's on my ex 04 Ram 1500 and were sweet.

When I bought my jeep about a month ago I originally thought it had the 420's but it turns out they are firestone tires that look very similar to the 420's with very similar tread pattern. I like these too.
