    Anyone know who makes the best quality red line tires in an all season?

    Not much out there, especially in 20". Best selection I found was through Diamondback, but you need to research their different redline tires to see which type is all-season. They also do white and blue for anyone interested. https://dbtires.com/product-category/tires/type/redlines/
    Good luck.
    I want a set badly but had to buy winter tires and wheels this year. My factory 20's only have 5K miles, so I can't justify the redlines unless I can find a guy locally who would buy my 245/45ZR20's.

    Yeah, I only have 10,844 miles on the Firestone Firehawks that came on the car. Just thinking ahead.

    To keep your speedo as accurate as possible, you should look for a 255/45-20 tire instead of a 40 profile.

    A 275/40-20 tire has a 28.7" diameter and has 704 revs. per mile. This is almost identical to a 255/45-20 tire that has a 29" diameter and 695 revs. per mile.

    A 255/40-20 has a smaller 28" diameter and 720 revs. per mile.

    I have them. I don't know about now but when I got mine the only way on a 20" was to have them made by a company called Diamond Back. It was an extra $100 for the redline stripe on top of the tire. I will never do it again.They have to polish down the tire and adhere the stripe to it. After a few years one started to leak and then then another one and we hardly drive the car. They said "Oh well". They polished the rubber too thin and the air slowly bleeds through so I can't exactly pinpoint it and reallly there is nothing that can be down anyway. Tire will go flat in about 3 months sitting.[​IMG]

    I replaced the front. Then the rear started to leak a few years later. I just add air periodically on the rear. I think the cost was almost $600 with shipping last I checked to replace the 315 so I just live with it. Probably going to replace all 4 in the next year with a standard tire.

    They look cool as hell but not worth the leaking hassle. Sorry I'm still a little ticked at this company's attitude. Be forewarned, they may leak after a few years just sitting....
