Re: Need new tires..stock rim. NOT the OEM pirellis. :)

Have had Yokohama Parada Spec X's for about 4K miles and so far have no complaints. Good grip, stock size, non runflats and tread pattern looks great. The ride is much smoother than pirellis due to the softer sidewall, but haven't noticed any performance degradation, although I haven't really cornered hard in them.

I just installed the General's as well. I have a few hundred miles on them and I'm liking them so far. Road noise is fine, grip seems ok so far (haven't pushed it much though), but as said and shown earlier, the tread pattern makes the SRT look even more badass.

Re: Need new tires..stock rim. NOT the OEM pirellis. :)

I started getting noise at 5k. OEM pirelli run flats. All run flats are junk. Just ordered Yoko parada x. Spoke to a knowledgeable guy who owns an srt and has this prob with every set owned. Apparently the factory specs for alaignment is set up for handling more than even tire wear. We will always have this problem. It can be adjusted so much before new parts are needed. Looks like we will have to sacrifice handling in order to get wear out of our tires.

Yoko's get LOUD after about 5k. I've been very happy with the General's.

There are a couple sets for sale in the classified section here. You can see there prices and condition. Someone has a set that looks brand new (3k) for $800

Re: Need new tires..stock rim. NOT the OEM pirellis. :)

Here's another option for consideration.

I got rid of my run-flats in 2014 & replaced them with Toyo Proxes ST II's. Last year the Toyo's started to be very noisy.

My Jeep dealer found these as a replacement;



I've had these tires on the Jeep for about a month. The ride & handling is good ... so far. Tread width is about the same as the P-Zeros.

I'm going to run the tires for the rest of the summer & see how they perform.

Here are pic's of the tires mounted on my OEM spider monkey wheels;

Update on generals, drove in several heavy rain storms and no hydroplaning whatsoever. Both pirelli all seasons and pirelli three seasons had hydroplaning often...
