Re: continental tire srt commercial

I don't think you can recalibrate, it's mybe 2MPH off at 80mph

I paid right around $1100 For a Full set Mounted Balanced and aligned.

50k warranty. They are little soft i have them at 35 psi to help.

way nicer ride than run flats. But NOTHING will be beat the stiffness of the Runflats. these squirm a little .

I must of had a bad set on the rears, they wore past the S in 15k miles with in a year with 4 rotations.

Continental was more than great on the warranty they replaced all 4 for free.

I have 18k on this set and the S is still in plain view!

Re: continental tire srt commercial

Has anyone tried these? They appear to be new...looking for a replacement tire that is not $500/each!! Currently looking at the General Grabbers and these Hankook Ventus

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

For almost the cost of one Pirelli P-Zero runflat I can get 4 of these...thoughts?

I know, right? I could even get a spare wheel and tire and still be under the cost of the 4 Pirelli's!!! Plus these Hankook's are 5lbs lighter per tire than the Pirelli's...which is interesting

Re: continental tire srt commercial

The Hankooks are... Ok . I could not get mine to balance properly and finally the retailer agreed to purchase them back. This was reported by another member as well.

With any replacement tire you are going to lose some cornering capability as the stock Pirelli is runflat to provide stiffer sidewalls. They were a bit squishy in the turns but not bad at all, just different.
Being a runflat probably contributes to the weight difference you mentioned as well.

Thank you for the great info! This may steer me towards the Toyo's as it doesn't appear many have put these on...I will be doing this in the next few weeks so will post up once it's all done. Thanks again!

Here’sthe appearance difference between the Pirellis and the DSW, the Continentals are a little shorteruploadfromtaptalk1438724839945.jpg

Re: continental tire srt commercial

Thanks for the pics...talked to a couple people and I'm sticking with 295/45r20...but I agree I would buy the DWS in a heart beat if they were in the size
