I am looking for any first hand experience with anyone who is NOT running OE Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat tires on their SRT.

I am currently collecting all necessary components to upgrade to the Brembo calipers/rotors on my R/T. I have 20x10 wheels and want to purchase 295/45/20 tires but do not want the Pirelli’s. What is my next best option for a vehicle that is driven in NE Wisconsin that has some harsh winter weather at times?

Here is what I’m looking at (no specific order) with the different prices associated. I’ve done plenty of reading but want real world input. If there is another tire that is recommended, please share. Do the more expensive tires really make that big of a difference performance wise?

1. Michelin Sport A/S 3+ - $1,100
2. Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06 - $1,300
3. Toyo Proxes STIII - $700
4. Yokohama Prada Spec-X - $700

Thanks!

I ran Grabber UHP's on my "sport truck" and I was very impressed. The truck was just as heavy as the DDSRT so they took the weight fine. They do have them in 295/45R20's. They did have great road grip in the dry AND in the wet. My biggest complaint was they were not symmetrical so you couldn't rotate them.

I thought about the Grabber UHP but their treadwear rating was kind of low compared to the other tires I listed. Also, being directional and not being able to rotate was a drawback. Thanks for your input @Thetruck454!

I've had the Yokohama Prada Spec-X and now have the Toyo Proxes STIII's in 295/45/20. Both are great tires, but directional, I rotate front to back and at around 20,000 miles have them dismounted/remounted left to right.

Any winter weather driving experience? When you get them remounted and balanced has there ever been issues?

I live in mid Pennsylvania and have driven in snow with the Yokohama's with no problem, haven't taken it out in snow this winter with the Toyo's. No issues getting them remounted/rebalanced, I do get them balanced on a Hunter Road Force balancer.

I have AS-3's on my Z06 for the winter, and I like them. I can't really compare them to the Scorpions on the SRT since the cars are so different and since the z06 never sees snow and rarely sees rain. But the AS-3's do retain traction in the cold weather, unlike the original SuperSports which become completely useless below 55 degrees, and which can crack below 32....(so they are now my track tires)

I have been happy with the Scorpions on the SRT but they only have 10K miles on them and we have had precisely zero inches of snow so far this winter.....

So I’d rather not go with directional tires although if looking at the price difference I could get almost two sets of tires compared to the Continentals. I’ve had Continentals in the past on a different vehicle with a 35 sidewall and they rode smooth and had the best all season rating I could get. Just wish they weren’t $330 a piece plus the mounting and balancing
