    Time for new tires, finally!

    2014 R/T AWD needing new tires...open to opinions, suggestions. I'm looking at what's the best prices out there right now on either Toyo/Nitto/Michelin/any others? I'd like to upgrade to a 22" setup, but the boss will probably veto that , so looking at 265/50/20 OEM sizing. TIA.

    I will be replacing the original tires on my 2014 V6 Citadel after 75,000 miles. I can get the original tires from Amazon (prime, free shipping) for almost $100 less (nominal $160 per 20" tire) per tire than Costco or Discount Tires plus $60 for installation for all 4 tires. There are significantly cheaper tires available from Amazon (down to $100 per tire), but have been very satisfied with original tires.

    I did not like the GY Fortera HL tires at all! I am pleased with the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus tires, but I also have a set of dedicated winter snow tires/wheels, so I have no idea how the Pirelli's do in the winter. Be careful, because nothing that is really inexpensive in this size is going to be a very good tire.

    Durango has Nitto 420s in a 285/50 tires, I love them. I do have winter tires as the 420s aren't for anything below 40. Nice deep tread too.

    We've had the Nitto 421Qs for a while now, and have really liked them. They are an all-season tire, and really did very well in all conditions, even snow.

    Just curious about your opinion re: Fortera. Did you have any particular issues? I am at 57,000 miles and they still are looking great. I am thinking about replacement mostly due to the age of the tire (almost 5 years) and not necessarily the treadwear. Looking to buy GY again.

    So you bumped up from 265 to 285 with no rubbing issues? I've always been a fan of Nitto's for sure.

    I'm at almost 50K with my GY Forteras, and I'm at like 3/32 wear, so yeah...need some new rubber. I haven't really had any complaints about the tires, I just want some Toyo's or Nitto's.

    On stock 20x8 wheels the widest tires should be 265. For a 275 or 285 tire to wear and perform properly, it needs at least a 9 inch wide wheel.

    I know like anything, people have done it, but it does'nt mean it's safe, especially with such a heavy truck.

    285's seem like a lot of tire for the OE 8" wheels ! I would think you would need to go to at least 9.5" wheels to go that wide !
    SRT's come with 295's on 10" wheels.
