Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

I'm in a similar situation, with around 12k on the 3 season runcraps and the rears are almost bald, even with regular rotation...
I'm wondering why they stopped making the BFGs? Had those on a previous car and really liked them...
I refuse to pay over $2k for another set of these shitty Pirellis... Can't keep them balanced, very noisy, poor wearing, junk....

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

i would think as long as your within the specs the LETTER designation shouldnt matter.

so make sure the load limit is met or exceeded and other such things.

and keep it under 135

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

Just had the asimmetrico's installed this week and am very happy with the result. They had to get them from two different sources to come up with 4. Early feedback is I would recommend them highly. Smoother/quieter ride with no more "wandering" over road imperfections. Haven't done any spirited driving yet but don't feel like it will be a problem with the occasional hard runs.

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

I have a special one time deal on some 22" iForged for a little over $4k. Custom made for the SRT. With a baby on the way it's making it very hard for me to pull the trigger. Not sure what to do.

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

Yes. I can get a better deal on the iForged. List price on the iforged I want is around $7600 - $8000. I can get them for 4300. Deep concave 3 piece. When I talked to Chad he said around $5k for his set that would be $8k-10k retail. Thank you for the lead regardless.

Re: V rated tires ok replacement?

I can confirm 162, on a v tire for a short time... It was fine. They are 1/4 the price.

No problem. I feel as though I should give the disclaimer that the 162 MPH was on an unrestricted portion of the German Autobahn.
