Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Anyone have some experience with SRT tyres other than the Pirelli Scorpions that come stock? Would be interesting to know what 'readily' available options are out there for a summer/all season high performance SUV tyre in the 295-45 R20 spec?

Does your question mean your coopers are rubbing?

No. Mine do not rub, but the tolerance is certainly not great. Just wondered if others had the same.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Just thought I'd mention I got 70,000 out of the stock Kumho's, always on road, mainly freeway kms (Sydney to Newcastle and country NSW).

You win! I guess the freeway is what they were made for. Mine lasted 10,000km with some off-road. That is obviously not what they were made for. So why did they put them on a 4x4? Potential purchasers test drive cars on the road so a tyre with good road feel is essential. Also, because of reviewers' fanatical fascination with fuel economy, it is essential that cars roll out of the factory with fuel efficient tyres. By the time the public realise they have been hoodwinked, the good figures are out there.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

im looking at these at the minute, mates have them on their gc's they have a higher speed and load rating than the oems..being quoted $370-$420ea, just called another shop he's at $340 i signed up fitted and balanced and $44 for full alignment. but unfortunately no aussie stock from kumho and no ETA at 30k there aint much left in them i guess i will wing it with the slicks.
