Why do some of you put truck tires on your 300?


There is a very limited selection to choose from in the tire market. DC chose to put a very particular size on the 300c. And a very bad one at that! The conti's "IMHO" are dangerous and ugly. Any upgrade will be felt immediately!

Besides... UTQG Rating=420-A-A Speed Rating=Y Load Rating=109



Marketing may say truck tire, but the specs. say different.

Considering our 300's (and Magnums) weight about the same as some small to midsize SUV's...unless you want super handling...why not go with a truck tire?
