2013 gc srt8 tires

Hi all I have a 2013 GC SRT8 and I'm debating on tires. I know the Pirellis are stock recommended tires but is there anything out there that's about the same but not as expensive ? Another question is would 305/50/20 fit on this truck ? Would it grind on the front while turning ? I am currently torn between the Hankook Ventus AS 295/45VR20 and the Yokohama Parada Spec-X size 295/45VR20. It's on stock rims if anyone needs pics let me know I don't mind posting. Thanks

Re: 2013 gc srt8 tires

After reading every thread about tires for the last year in anticipation of buying new tires I had the Yokohama Parada Spec-X size 295/45VR20 installed today. The look is okay but obviously it's to early to comment on performance, I was concerned with the noise issue mentioned by several people here but rolled the dice.

Re: 2013 gc srt8 tires

I checked another forum and can find nothing but good reviews, so far how do they handle ? Do you have an SRT also ?

Re: 2013 gc srt8 tires

Yes I also have a 2013 SRT, the vapor edition with 44,000 miles. I had the Pirelli 3 seasons from the factory and ran the Pirelli ice and snow during the winter. I had them installed today finished up around 1:00 pm so I have only driven them to work, about 15 miles so not enough seat time to give a accurate description. Mostly driven on the highway they seemed fine, most of the noise complaints were after a couple thousand miles I believe.

Re: 2013 gc srt8 tires

Ah ok thanks for the response and keep me posted I may get a set of Yokohama's in the coming weeks. I have only seen good reviews especially when compared to the Pirellis. I currently have the Snow/Ice Pirellis gonna put those away until next winter and use the Yokos as the 3 season substitute...

Re: 2013 gc srt8 tires

A 305/50 is way too big for your Jeep. The Spec-X is better suited for a regular GC in my opinion since it's more of a touring tire with a smoother and more cushioned ride. The General Grabbers aren't bad for the price actually.

All of the tire threads that I followed here were specifically about the SRT by SRT owners. They mentioned the Yokohama as well as the Hankook Ventus AS more than any other brands followed by the General as the tires that they were switching too.

No sorry, all those threads were about the factory size.
