What kind of tires do you recomment for an SRT?
 
My dad is needing some new tires for the the SRT. What do you guys recommend?

Will need something that is good in the winter weather.

Any brands to stay away from? He's also a little nervous about not using run flats, but is open to suggestions. Thanks!

x2 on what joe said.


Goodyear run flats suck ass, stiff ride, tough side walls. some people say the good year run flats are good enough for winters driving- i actually beg to differ. more often than not i hated the tires in snow/sleet/winter. especially the slip and bounce when merging on highways, especially if you go over the road slick markers. i drove my one of my friends 5.7 with winter tires in the same places i drove my SRT and WOW what a difference.:thumbsup:

sort of useless info, sorry :D:sleepy:

haha yeah the goodyears suck in the snow, but we don't really have any good options for snow tires :(

I heard nothing but good things about this winter setup:


Rims: 18" Sport Edition F10 with TPMS

Tire: Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow - Run Flat - 255/55R18 XL
