Let us know....
I second that. As a newbie I'd like to see what everyone else has and what type of tire their running. I'm running the stockers but would like to go to a 22" tire and ditch the stock rubber as well.ekool said:No pics???? Come on yall
I am going for a black black black look.... I got TSW Thruxton in hyper black... In addition, as I go for the look I want & not others.... I'm not painting my calipers in red or yellow... I'm still on the fence about the color...maybe just black...not sure yet. In the meanwhile, I put a tremendous amount of thought into the size.... I went with the 20 & not 22's for a simple reason... I love driving my car. What good is it to drive on 22's if you're always avoiding pot holes, worried about things like that.... so I chose the 20's... I have no regets & with these wheels...there's nothing out there like it!!! Check it out....ekool said:Let us know....

When I had the same stock tires on the 300C and the Magnum RT wheels, the weight difference was 3 pounds less per wheel. The RT wheels & tires were lighter. I have not had a chance to weigh the RT wheels with the 245/55-18 BFG g-Force KDWS tires, nor have I weighed the Pirelli Scorpion snow tire/300C stock wheel combo.Northern Rider said:Dave, I'm running the same winter set up with the Pirellis. I am trying to figure out my summer setup (which will not include the contis) A couple of questions:
How much lighter is the R/T BF combo vs stock?
I'm not even sure it makes sense to compare the two tires. The Pirelli are dedicated winter tires with very poor lateral grip, long braking distances, and are easy to light up (or engage traction control) when you step on the gas. These are all normal attributes of a winter tire. They seem to be noisier than the stock Conti tires, but those "grand touring" tires are quickly fading into a distant memory. They are pretty good in the snow, although if I lived further north, I would probably go for the 235-55-18 Blizzak WS-50 snow tires instead. These Pirelli tires didn't do so well in this morning's icy commute.How do you rate the Pirelli vs the BF for handling; stopping; comfort and noise?
