Re: New winter tires on 20"

If the temp runs below 45F / 7C winter tires have better road handling and grip (in rain snow ice or whatever). So even if there's no snow , safety is improved.

exactly...it's the mild temps that kill the tires not the lack of snow.

Thanks! The tires are original equipment size (265/50/20), thus no rubbing. I believe wheels are 8.5 inches width. More info on wheels is at Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels if they still carry them. I like the look of these wheels on the JEEP better than the original equipment wheels. When the DMV1's wear out, I may get a set of Nitto Terra Grappler's in the same size and leave them on all year. But I am concerned about how much traction I would be giving up for ice/snow as compared to the Blizzack DMV1's.

Re: New winter tires on 20"

I'm just east of you cloud in Fairfax. I havent seen much snow here... I'm going to just get a set of Cooper Zeon LTZ's on my 20's. Can't get stock size though so i will have to get 275/55/20.
