I am looking to go with Michelin primacys on my car as the cooper CS4s it came with a pretty much gone. Makes driving in the snow like using a RWD 300C.

Anyone got opinions on these? Online sounds like these are great tires for all seasons.

What's the Max Tire Width???

30k and the stockers are done so it's time for new rubber. I'm looking to go a little wider than the 225/60/18 OEM's but don't want to chance any rubbing issues. Anybody have any experiences to share?
Thanks!

255/55/18 is a solid choice.

Hey folks,

I am fed up with the crappy rotors on my 300C AWD and I am looking to replace them. Nothing fancy or perfromance needed, just want better brakes that do not warp.

So, what are you all using? EBC?

Thanks,

Same here. Rotors were crumbling from the inside out, warped, and squeaking. I put on Centric Premium rotors and Akebono ceramic pads from Rockauto.com a few months ago. Its a good combo - now braking is smooth and quiet.

They do make srt8 in AWD, it just happens to say Jeep on the front. I've test driven an 06 and 08 GC srt8 and they are plenty nice. I'm sure someone has pulled off having a 300c srt8 in a cold climate. Usually it's a matter of weight over the rear wheels and snow tires. Depends how flat the area is too, an area that is hilly is going to be much worse to deal with in the snow.

I would say for what you are looking to do in ND, get some snow tires and maybe even have them studded. Seen a few 300C's around that have the winterforce studded tires on them. that would give you as much traction as possible in the winter. With the way it gets cold out here, don't even bother with trying to just run some all-season tires if you are going with RWD.

As for what I settled on for tires with my AWD 300C, went with some Bridgestone TAs if I recall correctly on the name. They actually are working quite well so far, bit noisier than the coopers, but the channeling in them works excellent for rain, looking forward to see how they do in snow.

Where in ND do you live?
