    I just got new tires for my car.

    At least they used the right kind of lift! :Big Laugh:

    Same size, staggered. Rears are 255/45 20, fronts slightly smaller, 245/45 20. I had Goodyear Eagle Sports on it. They had over 50,000 miles on them and they still weren’t fully down to the wear bars, but close enough. I’ve never had a tire last that long on any vehicle I’ve ever owned. So, naturally, I got the same ones again. Also got a 15% discount through AAA. Total for all 4 was just a little over a grand.

    Just curious. There is not much difference in width between a 245/45-20 and a 255/45-20 tire. Since you have an SRT, your rims are 9-inches wide. Why didn't you install 275/40-20s on the rear, like me?

    Tom the Goodyear's run wider than a cooper (bulge width) mounted . I sell them both since good year owns cooper. I sell 4 GY to 1 over cooper. coopers are just a cheaper "replacement tire" there is nothing wrong with them if someone wants to save money. my cost on a cooper "275" = $197.50 ea. and the "255" GY = $259.00 ea. again that's my cost. I realize there is a big difference in price but a lot of difference in quality traction , handling and ride and mileage. like I said I sell all of the major brands. When you have cars like we all do here, I want a better tire than a replacement tire. He made a good choice IMO.

    Cuz I'm not like you! :Big Laugh:

    Seriously, though, I had such good luck with the last ones, I didn't want to change. When I bought the car, it came with Eagle F1 Supercars, a high-perf soft tire. Those were toast after 9,000 miles, and I don't drive it where I need that kind of performance.
