Re: Nitto 420's in the snow

Also, I was told 265/50/20 fit stock springs w/ Bilsteins. Hope it was right choice.

Re: Nitto 420's in the snow

Thanks, I ended going with more of an all season Bridgestone Alenza Plus in a 255/50R20. Had the 420's in a 265/50R20 for a day and didn't like them.

Re: Nitto 420's in the snow

What didnt you like about the 420's? I've heard such mixed reviews on them I'm starting to get weary about purchasing them. I'm leaning towards the continental DWS but they're a lot more expensive...

Ive had 2 sets of 420s and never had a single geipe about them. Great in the snow we get here in KY....great in rain and dry traction. If they made a.305 35 22......Id buy them again.
