Year round SRT8 tire options: NY climate.

hey guys. Im finally getting rid of my 2nd set of crap years, and i need some advice on which tires to choose. I know I am goin with the 275/40/20 f and 315/35/20 r setup. People have mentioned the Conti DWS, and also the nitto 420s. worse comes to worse i could go with vreds and put the crap years back on during the colder months, even though they do kinda suck in the snow, dont got the money to get summer/winter setup. Please help. thanks

Re: Year round SRT8 tire options: NY climate.

if you dont have the money use what you have. there is no OBAMA TIRE STORE where the needy get tires.

FYI: There are at least 2 sets of snows in the for sale at half price.

putting the PROPER EQUIPMENT into your vehicle to handle the current weather conditions is something you should have considered when you bought your vehicle/

Re: Year round SRT8 tire options: NY climate.

the crapyears were ok in the snow...but with their compound..they tend to get hard and when that happens you lose traction. I like my Nitto 420's in the snow and winter weather...but aalos in summer/spring/fall action. I hear the toyo proxes are nice

Re: Year round SRT8 tire options: NY climate.

thanks scott. in the coming years though it will most likely be seeing snow again but on very rare occasion. im leaning toward the conti dws or 420s.
