srt8 Wheel
Hi I was just wondering what tire you guys think looks the best of on a 20 x 9 rim? Im open to the idea of the size 255 (45 or 50) 20 ,, or a 275 45 20. Im putting 4 20 x 9's and want a good looking tire for the srt wheels.

255-45-20 is what the stock srt's have on the 20x9's and 285-40 on the 20x10's.

Re: srt8 Wheel
well i had falken ziex stz04 in 275 45 20 on the reps. They were a good tire, but really they are on the bottom of the tire price range and I want to try a tire that is a little more stock srt8 looking. Those tires also threw up tons of rocks while driving, probably because of the deep tire grooves. But my main reason is because I want a tire that is more stock srt8 looking but I dont want the runflats because of the price of them.

Yea I saw you went with 255 50 20 rob. Did you want a little more sidewall instead of the 255 45 20? How do they look on all 4 corners compared to a 275 45 20?

Also I am putting 20 x 9's all around.

Re: srt8 Wheel
Also it seems alot of srt guys on here are going to a bigger tire on the front and back of their srt's, is there a reason for this or is it just because its easier to find tires in bigger sizes?

Re: srt8 Wheel
thye are going to the 275-45 tire on the 20x9's

Re: srt8 Wheel
why are they going to 275 45 20s on the front scott. Do you not like the stock size 255 45 20 on them?

Re: srt8 Wheel
The 275/315 combo is actually smaller in overall diameter at 28.62" vs a 29" Stock SRT Goodyear, but they are wider and should give me quite a bit more traction and faster times.
