I've hear they work pretty good. As long you are you talking about the all seasons and not the 3 season tires. Big difference.

Re: How are the stock SRT All Seasons in med-deep snow?

Quick question here. Maybe some of you guys can answer it.
Would these tires fit on the stock WK2 wheels? I have these tires on my Ram 1500 and they are great. Work amazingly well in the snow and aren't noisy at all. Thanks!

Yes, those would fit. The stock 14'-15' SRT size is 295/45R20. I would call tire rack for sure. Could be an issue with load rating or something crazy you never know.

Thanks.
I did "assume" they would fit, it's just the speed rating that is not the same.
I actually did write to tirerack about whether this tire is compatible with the stock wheels on the 201/2015 SRT wheels. (they say allow for 2 business days before hearing back.) Like I stated earlier, I have them on Ram 1500 and they work very well in the snow in 4X4.
I will report back from what I hear from tirerack for those that are interested.

In case anyone is interested, these tires will fit per salesman representative at tirerack.com.
He did say that the speed rating is different and the sidewall may be a bit wider.
They work amazingly well in the snow, as I have them on my Ram 1500.

It makes no difference what car or SUV, with AWD or without and "snow mode" or not.

There is NO substitute for dedicated SNOW/Winter tires.

Medium to deep snow has to have a place to get out from under the tire. The treads on "all-seasons" are not designed to do that like dedicated snow tires are.

I have proven this many times over through the years. I did it again in 2013 with the stock all-seasons (Pirelli Scorpion) on the GC. In 8" of fresh wet snow, the all-seasons were sliding around. An hour later switched over to the Pirelli Scorpion "Ice and Snow" tires and repeated in the same snow, new and fresh not driven on. The control was without a doubt 100% better.

(Currently riding my 2nd season on these dedicated winter tires)

Tires > any other "upgrade" in my book if you value your safety and the safety of your passengers.
