What size do you have? I looked them up and they don't make a 295/45 for a 20 in rim. Thanks!

Aye, this has been the challenge I've run into. Thanks for your input. By the way, your blacked out 22s are absolutely bad ass...

Re: Tires and brakes

You can try looking at Yokohama on these 2 types:

AVID ENVigor ZPS Performance Tires | Yokohama Tire Corp.

Parada Spec-X Performance Truck Tires | Yokohama Tire Corp.

Both are 295/45/20

and both can go up to Y: 186 mph

I have the Yokohama paradas on my '12 SRT. They are great and under $200/tire. They are non run flat though.

Re: Tires and brakes

Re: Tires and brakes

Followup: I got the Yokohama Parada-Xs. They were a little slick when new, but have broken in well. I am very happy with them.

Now, on to brake research....
