Best tires for SRT Reps?

Ive got an 07 5.7L AWD and i want to get the polished SRT reps but I really have NO CLUE what size tire I'd need nor which brand/model is going to suit me best down here (hot temps, wild driver).

thanks!

Re: Best tires for SRT Reps?

tirerack has an excellent rating and review on each tire they sell. I have the Nitto 420s and they are an excellent all season tire

Re: Best tires for SRT Reps?

What kind of SRT reps are you getting the 20x9 or 20x10 or even staggered where front 20x9 and rear 20x10 IMHO that's the meanest looking setup with 275 tires upfront and 315's on the rears

me too..... but I didn't avail myself of them for the tires. I heard Discount Tire has them at a reasonable price... and of course, do youhave stock SRT sizes (staggered) or 20x9's on all four corners...????

Re: Best tires for SRT Reps?

IMO, I would buy an inexpensive tire. Not like you will have traction issues with full time 4wd.

I have Goodyear RS-A 255/50-20's and I have 20x9's all the way around so I can rotate.

Re: Best tires for SRT Reps?

i just got he SRT8 reps from FR and opted for their new staggered wheel / tire combo

got the toyo proxes STII 255/45/20 in front and 295/40/20 in the rear.. and am very very happy with them.. i put around 600miles on them so far and they grip real good.. in dry and although havent tried them in wet they did very well today when the weather was misty outside as the roads were slick!

Re: Best tires for SRT Reps?

I got General Grabber A/Ts on mine and coming from Toyos they are awesome. The tread pattern is 'almost' identical and they are very good on the road - wet or dry.

My dad has them on his ML too and even in the 3 ft of snow we had in Winter he had no problems at all with them. Gripped great.
