Tires and brakes

Just hit 16k miles on my 2012. While getting an oil change, the dealer was kind enough inform me that I will be needing new tires and brakes soon.

Anyone have experience or recs regarding tires?. It's nearing tax time, and the $500+/tire dealer quote is a bit rich for my blood.

Anyone have experience with replacement brake pads? Drilled or slotted rotor upgrades?

Re: Tires and brakes

16K Tires, and brakes take it to an independent for a second opinion. Unless you've been having a lot of fun I can't see that being true.

Re: Tires and brakes

Probably had 3 season tires, not uncommon to need new tires around 15000 miles

Re: Tires and brakes

Yikes those are brembo's, and 20's so if I ever thought about buying a SRT I'd have to factor that into cost of ownership. I guess it would still be worth it just for the stupid grin on my face that I would have.

Re: Tires and brakes

you can get aftermarket pads for $50-60. I got hawk and Stoptechs for like $140-150 shipped for the fronts/rear. Dont pay $500-600 for the stock brembos

Re: Tires and brakes

I'm nearing 20k on my 2012 JC srt8, and definitely need new rubber. The OEM tires run up to $500 per tire (more at dealer!). Falken, Hankook, and BF Goodrich offer less expensive tires, but have mixed reviews online. Does anyone have experience with replacement tires or suggestions that you can share?
