Thanks for the recommendations on Jessie. I'm getting my new Conti DWS installed on Monday. Got me a great price installed, beating TireRack's pre-shipping cost.

Jessie got me a great deal but I made the mistake of having them installed at the Discount Tires in Bellevue instead of Federal Way. BIG MISTAKE They ended up putting scratches in all 4 of my painted wheels. They repainted them but did an awful job. So if you do get them from Jessie be sure to have them installed at Federal Way not Bellevue.

Definitely. I got 275/40-20 in the front and 315/35-20 in the rear. These are not factory rims though. That size will not fit the factory 20" SS wheels, FYI.

The reason I went with that size is I needed wider tires for these wheels and it was the only size that would not change my overall diameter and throw my speedo and odo off. Supposedly, it's not ideal going 315 on a 10" rim, but if there's a little bulge, I don't mind. But I've seen photos of these tires on these wheels, and it looks like damn near a perfect fit so I'm not worried.

Wow! Yeah, he offered to get them done at Bellevue as then I might not have to wait while the rears were ordered as they didn't have them in stock at Federal Way. Luckily, since you said that, that didn't work out so I'm getting them done at Jessie's shop. I'll be sure to stress that they be careful with my rims. Thanks!

I have Conti Extreme Contact DWS on mine. They are great. No problem with them failing to grip the road at all, even in the rain and I get pretty wild in the turns

Yeah I'm getting bald in the back on the factory tires. It was time for new ones before Sturgis. :P Plus the factory tires are just a bit too narrow for 8.5" and 10" rims.

I haven't been on here for a while, and all I can say is WOW!!! Thanks everyone for the positive comments!!!

Misty I'm so sorry that happen there. I didn't expect that at all! Reason I recommended Bellevue because I started my career there and I know the do great work. From now on I'll have everyone come directly to me.

Jesse, I'll be seeing your shortly for some quotes on the DSW.

Firestone_SS, what does Firestone have for the 2LT/RS that I should be looking at?

I will probably be getting them in October right as the really rainy season starts.

^DWS*? I love these tires btw. I might replace my wheels with the Nurburgrings though. Something a little wider than I have now so the DWS fit better.

I spent a lot of time custom painting the Foose rims I have now but I really like the look of the Nurburgring and the Foose Speed that I have are kind of an awkward size. 20x8.5 and 20x10 is hard to find two matching pairs of tires in the correct sizes. :\

That is one thing that's handy about having my black rims.. if I scrape it, I can sand the area down and just put satin paint on.

Seems like the 3 tires that are popular is the DWS, Goodyear F1's, and the BFG GeForce Comp2's.
