Re: tires for srt8

no choices in runflats in stock sizes other than the goodyears...

I HIGHLY suggest the Nitto 420s in stock sizes! HUGE improvement over the goodyears...and all season!

Re: tires for srt8

I found bridgestones for about the same price as just the 2 front stocks...

is there anything i can do about the uneven wear on the stocks? theres only 25k miles on them and they are getting bad on the inside.

Re: tires for srt8

the runflats will wear on the inside due to alignment that is just barely off...or their VERY stiff sidewalls

Any tire wears on the inside if the camber isn't set correctly, not just runflats.

There are a bunch of people that are still using runflats. The aftermarket ones don't seem to pull you around as much on the highway as the stock ones did and ride a lot smoother. I have the Dunlop SP Sportmaxx in 275/315 and haven't noticed any abnormal wear to the inside. There are also a bunch of guys using the Bridgestone Dueler HP runflat in 275/315. The only issue I have heard about using them is that you need to get low profile bolts for the stock end links or bwoody endlinks since the tires are so wide and rub a little bit.

Re: tires for srt8

Ive been running the Toyo Proxes ST2's for a while now and I must say its awesome.

Such a smooth ride and no more jarring of my teeth when I hit a pothole. LOL

Re: tires for srt8
