295/45r20s?

I'm about to need to replace my stockers... I wanted to get the BFG KDWs, but they are no longer made in our size. Pirelli Asimmetrico is the same - can't find them anymore. Most all of the 295/45s that I can find are about an inch narrower than the run flats...that sucks.

What options are you guys going with for stock wheels?

Re: 295/45r20s?

I was actually going to post up this same question this weekend as I am going to need some too before long. In for updates.

Re: 295/45r20s?

More info:
Yea, the problem is the tread width on replacements. The Pirelli PZero run-flats are 10.7". The Pirelli Asimmetrico are the same.

All of the overall widths are close - 11.5-11.7, it's the tread width/contact patch that is smaller.

Sumitomo HTR Sport - 9.8" and H speed rating (130)
Yokohama Parada Spec-X - 10.2"
Falken Ziex S/TZ05 - 9.8" and H speed rating (130)
Hankook Ventus ST - 9.8"
Toyo Proxes ST II - Unknown width
Nexen Roadian HP - Unknown width
Fullway HS288 - Unknown width
Nankang N990 - Unknown width
Nankang SP/7 - Unknown width

The General Grabber UHP is 10.6" and looks to be the only option. I don't have any experience with General tires though...

Research is a PITA

Re: 295/45r20s?

True. I just replaced mine yesterday with the Toyo specs. Good tires for the money but to your point the difference in size width does make them look a little different. Tires feel amazing but I feel the Pirelli tires were just bigger filling out the wheel well better. I should have done more research on size specs like you are doing. I include a picture of the Toyos. I feel like I can see more of the top of the tread or tire height seems a little smaller. I also replaced my rotors and brakes at the same time.

I think it's just my OCD complex. Need the reinforcement.

Re: 295/45r20s?

Following this thread intently. In Australia then OEM Pirelli run flats are close to $800 per tyre and the Toyos are around $700 per tyre.

Really keen to see the summer/all season options, especially tread wear and non run flat tyres...

Re: 295/45r20s?

Yeah. Got the whole set of 4 Toyos for $600 compared to one Pirelli costing $500. Would be interested in seeing a picture of the Yokohamas if anyone can post one. Toyos are directional tires so limits rotation to only front to back.

Re: 295/45r20s?

I'm at 15 now (all seasons) and can probably squeeze by until 20 or the next state safety inspection whichever comes first. Mostly highway miles at 60-75.

Re: 295/45r20s?

I'm at 14k on the PZero's and they are about done for my daily driving. I say that because it was a bit sketchy in a heavy rain last week... I'll probably squeeze another 2k out of them while trying to figure out what to replace them with.

I've had both the Toyos and the Yokos on previous SRTs, and personally I felt the Toyos handled better due to having a little softer compound for added grip. That also meant a shorter lifespan. I had those on a 300 SRT and they handled snow, rain, and track days well.

I had the Yokos on my WK1 SRT Jeep and they were night and day from the run craps. Our Pirelli run flats are nicer than the GY, but still too harsh for my taste. They were great in the dry and wet, and even handled deep Seattle slush pretty good. The sidewalls seemed stiffer than the Toyos, which would benefit our big WK2s. The lateral grip in the wet is impressive with the Yokos.

All that being said, I'm leaning towards selling my 3 season P Zeros with 700 miles to someone looking for max performance so I can get set up with some Yokohama Paradas. I'm still debating whether or not to get replicas or just let the black chrome Spiders get some wear and tear.

One last thing, and I hope I didn't rant too long or hijack, but as far as looks I think the Yokos are far and above the Toyos. I always found myself having to apply dressing to the Toyos to keep the side profile from looking weird if they were dull.
