265/50R20 Tire Opinions

So there are a lot of tire threads out there with many looking at different size tires than stock. So for the 265/50R20 what are opinions on the best all season on road type tire. Looking for the quietest and softest smoothest ride on bumps. Not looking for a snow tire or an off road tire just a good on road tire all season that will handle a little snow if needed but the quiet and soft ride being most important. Not interested in changing sizes just the best of what is out there for the 265/50R20. I have looked at tire rack reviews but tire rack does not sell all tires so there are other options out there and a lot don't have any reviews that I can find. Appreciate any opinions

Re: 265/50R20 Tire Opinions

Lots of information about this up above in the WK2 Wheel and Tire forum...

Personally, I'm moving to the Nitto NT421Q when I replace my Forteras later this year. I still have about half my tread left, so I'll run what I have until the fall.

Re: 265/50R20 Tire Opinions

Nokians are awesome. I have the hakkapelitta r SUV for winter duty. A friend of mine had wr g2's on her x5. They were great as an all season but actually performed well in snow too. Go for them.

I recently changed my tires with stock size 20" wheels. I used Nitto NT 421q and I'm very happy with them so far.

I have considered Nokian but felt that they are more of a winter tires. The other thing is that I had issue with the availability.

Anyway, anything will be better than the OEs

Good luck
