This was my 3rd option that was presented to me @ Big Brand over the weekend. Similar in pricing as the Generals and Hankook's...do you have any pictures of them installed?

Sell them on the forums. If i weren't switching to 22s i'd make you an offer right now...

Re: Replacement Tires non-run flats

CLStech, what do you think a fair asking price for the tires would be? I couldn't really ask for the price of a new tire, but I would think something close.

^^ Thank you both for the info...did either of you look at the Toyo's? These were just brought to my attention over the weekend...

I have not seen them side-by-side...but I am hoping they are similar in profile an I too love the look for the Pirelli's. Am I missing something or shouldn't a 295/45r20 tire be the same width?

I would have liked to get them for $1200... I purchased my last set from a guy on here.

I tried the Hankooks and couldn't get them balanced properly and wasn't a fan of the decrease in cornering capability so I got a second set of the OEM tire from a forum member who maybe had 100 miles on his set...

Re: Replacement Tires non-run flats

I put an ad on the SRT classified section here. Maybe someone will be interested. Thank you for your advice.

Re: Replacement Tires non-run flats

Those are the ones that I'm looking at switching too. Their reviews on TireRack are fantastic with very good tread life.
