Re: JK 18s on my Wk

$180 each for the Nokians i want. (installed)

$175 for the Pirelli Scorpion ATR (starting to think no because of tread wear reviews) (tire rack not installed)

$151 for the Yokohama Parada Spec X dont know much about them, just have good internet reviews. (tire rack un installed)

I am still looking for a good year round i want everything from a tire, Run flat.

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

The problem i am having now is finding an affordable Run flat, that will be good year round. EDIT, Thet are out of the question! No way i can afford $300 to $600 per tire for run flats.

Also i have read a few articles about run flats having alot of premature wear issues. WTF. LOL
Article
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/11/au...s/11FLATS.html

Spend big bucks on run flats and no spare fro SRT style exhaust or other exhaust and keep the spare under the jeep? Or keep spare in cargo area taking up space that i dont use... too often?

You can never be too sure nowadays. I would choose this route.

I think thats what i will do for now. The exhaust shop will go around the tire but thats prolly going to double the price. I can get a nice storage bag/cover for the tire to keep inside clean and keep it in back, at least for far from home trips, around town i can leave it and have my AAA free 100 mile service come help me if noone can bring me the spare from my shed.

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

well....I am a runflat supporter. I've had mine for 2 years and they have saved my butt once already. I hit a spike on the highway(I75) and the tire got me over 40 miles home with my family. Just make sure to keep the tire in the specified inflation range and make sure the alignment is within spec and you will be fine. That story in the NYTimes is bunk in my opinion. Most of those situations could happen with any tire. Why would those people pay double the price of the tire at the dealer when there are many online tire dealers? Of course I'm not gonna buy a 20" RSA runflat from my dealer.....thats would just be stupid. All of those numbers are inflated to make the story more sensational.

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

I am not bashing run flats, i just think they are way out of my price range. I also have no idea what brand i should go with for what i am looking for.

Yea, i have noticed that most run flats are coming in 19 and 20" sizes. The Nokian tires i want are only available in a run flat as a 19". I think i am going to give up on run flats to save on $$ and just keep my spare (with a cover on it ) in the rear cargo area (i rarely need all that space where it would be in the way).

I might even leave the spare at home while in town and if something happens have someone go get it and bring it to me or use my AAA and free 100 mile tow to get me home.

I also drive around with a plug kit too so if i catch a slow leak or nail i can fix it myself until i can bring it to a tire shop and get a proper patch/plug. (like what town fair tire uses)

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

I cant take the anticipation. LOL

The single wheel will be here saturday. The other 4 will be here monday. OMFG i cant wait and i dont even have tires yet.

I think i have decided to buy 245/60/18 Yokohama Parada Spec X but nothing is set in stone until the day i buy tires. I found a great tire site with them for $126 each vs tire racks $150. Then i can take that info to TownFair Tire and they will beat the price so i can get 5 Yokohama parada spec x tires for $686 installed vs the $900 installed for 5 nokians.


J/w though, what do you do when you have directional tires and you get a flat and the spare is only good for one direction? Drive it just to get home and get it fixed or get it towed? Should i buy a regular tire non matching for a spare? maybe something used?
