what tires to buy

Hello, almost time for new tires... Not sure what to get or to stick with the OEM ones again... Any recommendations also should I change sizes of tires but keep them 20".

Thanks...

I went with toyo's on my stock wheels. Then I upgraded to forgestar f14's with continental 275 fronts 315 rears.
If you don't need an all season tire look at the nitto invos.

What kind of driving do you do? If this is your DD and you're wanting to get a good high performance tire that has great tread wear, you can't go wrong with the Continental EC DWS's. They are listed as a ultra high performance tire that has a 540 tread wear rating. The OEM PZ's are 220.

I'd look into buying tires that are a size or two bigger. Not rim size, tire size. The stock 275's will fit the OEM front rim and 295's will fit the OEM rears.

Running wider tires is all about the offset. Since you're running the stock tires, that's not a problem. I've seen people run 305's on the rear OEM rim AND lowered without an issue. That's going a little too big IMO, but it can be done. I think 295's look great on the OEM rim and they're only a few $$ more than the 275's.

What mods do you have? Do you care more about tread life or traction? I chose Nitto NT-05s for traction in a 275/315 combo. I personally would go with as sticky a tire as you can afford.

We have the orginal Pirellis in stock at a very competitive price. These are a very well balanced tire. I have other options also let me know if I can help.
