Re: Winter Rubber on OEMs?

I need to make a decision on what set of tires to buy! If I may ask how much did you guys pay for the set of Pirelli?

I got my Pirelli tires from tire rack , I think I paid 1300. Tire shop charged 100 bucks to mount and balance.

Good to hear. Not sure if they still have the $100 rebate offer too, check it out
You'll love the ride with these.

Have you had any trouble from mounting these on the 10 inch rims. The tire sales companies are telling me I can't go narrower than the oem tire on the 10 inch rim. Are they just trying to sell me a set of rims?

I'd like either the 265's or the 255 50 20 which are 10.04 wide yet are for a 9 inch rim?

275/45R20 Blizzak Dm-V1 on polished WK SRT OEM 20X10 are by far the best snow tire i ever owned.
studded tire make alot of road noise when there no snow on the ground


These rating speak for it self.

Re: Winter Rubber on OEMs?

Man I'm gonna hate switching out the winter tires. Truck rides great and I'm really hating to put back the factory run flats. Might go with the Yoko's on the factory spider monkeys.

I was going to run a 275 winter tire on my OEM Goliaths but Discount tire informed me it was too narrow and wouldn't mount them if I bought them. They said 285 was the most narrow I should go

But. . . It sound like 275 is working fine for you. Damn, I like the Blizzaks

I've had no problems with the Nokian's on the factory spider monkeys. For a studded tire they are quiet and work extremely well.
