Oh got it... lol...If you look at my other post I'm very skeptical about the fit. I'll know for myself for sure in a few days. Thanks...

Re: Hankook Ventus ST RH06, Snow

It's not like I'm gettting thrown off a lane every day. The Hankooks are very quiet and really great tires. I have them on my 2014 Overland with QL. And I've also pulled the F50 fuse and disabled the QL alltogether. I drive in entry/exit height all the time. Definitely better handling than stock and not as floaty as stock tires. In NYC though some of our major highways see a lot of truck traffic and lanes are uneven. When switching lanes it is not as smooth due to tire width. PSI is at 36 and the ride is not hard at all. Overall, I am very happy with the tire!!!

I get tossed back and forth on uneven roads in my SRT, my wife hates it.

I ended up going with the Continental DSW 295/40r20 all season for the winter months. I know it's a little shorter but that's as close I could get.

That DSW has a similar tread pattern to my Nitto 421Q. It's kewel in that the various performance factors are optimized across the tread on these tires. My other half is needing new tires soon for her Outback and she wants to stay with Conti, so we'll have to look at those, too.

Cool. Let us know how it does.

I had these on my Infiniti G35C 6MT, and I loved them. Best AS I've found for the NW. I used to switch summer and winter tires, but with the Contis, I just ran them all year.

Re: Hankook Ventus ST RH06, Snow

Low profile tires in the snow. Hmmm snow flakes just means its an all season tire. Not specifically a snow tire. Low profiles on a jeep huh? You won't get good traction with those, ya need a more aggressive snow tire maybe.

None of what you said is true.

A low profile tire can do just as good in the snow. It's the thread pattern and type of rubber that dictates performance in snow and low temps.
The benefits you'll see from a larger sidewall are a softer ride and more protection against pot holes and curbs.

The true sign of a winter tire is the mountain peak snow symbol. These look to have only the snowflake so they won't perform as well but may be better than applications without the symbol.

Greetings,

I heard that Outback's like Nokian tires.

I have not been following Continental for a long time, but it seams to be going the route of the better tire compounds. Thus the ability for the tread patterns. I think they are taking on Dunlop more than Nokian. Everybody in Europe today know that Nokian is the tire of choice for all seasons and conditions as the overall premium tire.

Best for now.

OEM size for my Jeep is 295/45r 20. The Continental are 295/40r20, a tad shorter yes. There alot of options at the 50mm heigth but discount tire suggested that size may rub. The only other option in OEM size is a Pirelli snow and ice at $360 per tire. Clearing the large Brembos with a smaller wheel is a challenge which is why I went with the 20in. I agree a snow only tire would be ideal in a taller and narrower size.
