Re: so what 20 inch tires

a tad too small from my stock diameter.

255/50R20 is actually closer to stock

Re: so what 20 inch tires

Wwwwait a minute....how can you be asking about tires when you havn't even told us what rims you're getting? Vipers? Or something else? I know you're gray Vipers aren't out yet Rob?

If you went with the Bridgestone...the Dueler HL Alenza...you can't go wrong...awesome tire...super smooth and quiet...and lasts forever!

The Coopers looks sweet too!!! I like them a lot!!!

Re: so what 20 inch tires

I like them to Hannes but the Parada have a better snow rating in the surveys. I know yours have never seen snow............

Re: so what 20 inch tires

Are you talking about the Yokohama's now? The Prada's...whatever works best in the snow...and you're right...mine has never seen snow...rain is the closest thing..unfrozen snow...lol!

I have 275/45/20 Rob...and thats what you should get...a 40 the sidewill is too small...and a 50 its too big...a 45 is just right!

Now what wheels Rob!? Don't wiggle around my question!! LOL!

Re: so what 20 inch tires

IMHO, the yokohama parada spec X has the best overall ratings for highway and performance and snow travel. id say find a size in those that will suite you and go for it.

Then give a review so more of us can buy them.
