Tire Change...

Its time to change all 4 tires on my 2014 GCSRT. Current miles are 27500 and I have the OEM Pirelli Scorpion Verde all season tire which came with the SRT. I have been happy with the tires and would like to replace with OEM. I looked at the tirerack and they have a 1 month waiting. Anyone knows any other place to get the tries ?
Is there any other all season tire option apart from Pirelli or I should just stay with Pirelli ? Need all season only.

Re: Tire Change...

Where do you live ? I live up north in Alberta CND and I went for winter pirelli and looking to get the Pzero next year for sunmmer. One thing i know for sure is that i'm not getting run flat tires. I heard that they run more stiff and hard. l

Re: Tire Change...

I just put on the Yokohama Spec X 295/45/20, they are great so far and only about $800 installed from Discount Tire. Low noise, no vibration..

Re: Tire Change...

CyanideG, How are those Yokohamas working out so far? Do they seem to have better wear then the Pirellis?

Re: Tire Change...

The Yokos are a great tire. The Runflats were nice for 18K miles but there was no way i was spending 2K on tires. I installed the Yokos @ Discount Tire for about $800 total and love them, very quiet, smooth ride. No complaints. Cornering is a little worse now as the Pirellis were very stiff on the sidewalls. I would pull the trigger on the Yokos.

Re: Tire Change...

Agree with last poster, yokos are great just run them at 35 or 36 psi and your only loss is hard cornering and the initial slippage on launch

I also bought mine from Discount Tire for 160/piece.
Great overall tire so far but cant comment on snow performance since I run dedicated winters.

Re: Tire Change...

I'm going to check out the yokos here soon as well. I just hit 11k on my 2014 and the tires don't look like they have a ton of life left, and I don't drive hard or launch or go to the track. Boggles my mind. Never had tires that lasted so little time for such a high price.
