New Tires Needed. Asking for suggestions

Post by 05RedDevil on Sun Dec 06, 2009 7:54 pm

So anyone who read how V. Gittin Jr toasted my tires, knows I am in dire need of new rear tires. I had Nitto 555R's but I want something that is more useful for cold and/ or wet weather driving. These will be daily driving wheels/ tires. I was thinking of either the NT05 or Invo which are both by Nitto and both available in the size I want: 315/35R20
Input?

Tirerack has the Yokohama Parada Spec-X which is a Street/Sport Truck All Season tire in a 295/45-20 which is only about .1" shorter than the 315/40 and about 1" narrower, but will be a much better suited winter daily driver tire as the compound is made to withstand the colder temps. High performance tire compounds don't really like temps below 45 and could not be so good if pushed near their limits even on dry roads...and being that you have quite a bit of power on tap and...well, most of us know how you like to drive...

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Yokohama&model=Parada+Spec-X&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&partnum=945VR0PSXXL&tirePageLocQty=%26partnum%3D945VR0PSXXL

BTW...they're only $129 each!!!!!

Hmmm, never even thought of rocking something like that but I'll give it a shot to get me through the winter b/c of the price.

Are you joking? The NT05's are $312 and the Invo are $267. The Performance Truck tires John suggested are crazy cheap and we'll see how they hold up. For the most part there is a much better selection and price for smaller tires. Just scroll through a given tire's specs and sizes to see
