Arrow Tire help - 20x9 / 20x10 for a 2wd WK

Hey JG! I need some tire recommendations for my 2wd staggered setup. Current tires are (f) 265/45 and (r) 295/40 Pirelli scorpion asemetricos. I like the tires but the the rears have worn out I wonder why??? but I may stay with them as the fronts have some life left...but will more than likely replace all four if I am coerced into a tire

I stay on-road. I want comfort over performance, as well as tread life over stickiness...whatcha got for me? Keep in mind I want wo do the staggered setup so the tires have to be available in both sizes...anyone have experience with these yokohamas? I really like the tread pattern...I don't want to spend much more than a grand for all four

you dont have to deal with snow so you luck out, check out these tires as they have a 65,000 mile tread warranty

they are very cheap and i have had good luck with hankook tires. i used them on my RWD WJ

I love the tread on those Scott...and surprisingly they aren't that pricey either Might I ask why you recommend the 285 vs 295 in the rears? Same with the 255 vs 265?
