What tires are you guys running on your R/Ts with the stock 17 inch rims? It is about time for some new shoes on mine, but am having trouble finding many options in the 255/55R17 range. Thanks

Are you lowered or stock height?? If lowered, look into the 255/50/17 size. If stock height, then check www.onlinetires.com The SS595s are really popular in the stock size, or you can look into a 275/55/17 or a 255/60/17 to expand your options as well.

Ya I have seen the Federal SS595s, but dont really know much about Federal. I am currently running 275/55/17, but just checking out the options. I am stock height, but might lower at some point. Ill look into 255/60/17, but with the truck at stock height the gaps in the wheel wells may look even worse.

Those of you who run the SS595s, what do you think of them? How do they do in wet weather?

Thanks

A 255/60/17 is the same height as the 275/55s you have now.

Running 255/50/17 Riken Raptors and love them. Good Dry and Wet handling. Snow is horrible..might as well be running drag slicks. But you shouldnt have an issue with that.

You a of the few people I have ever heard that liked the Nittos for more than just the looks. Most people who have them complain about traction, especially wet traction. If all you care about is treadlife, you will love the Falkens. 420 treadwear means hard as rocks, but also means even worse traction. I had them for a while and never looked back once I wore them out.

hskrRT, yea i do like them, BUT, these are the only tires that i have put on the truck b/c ive only owned it for goin on 3 years, so yea, the wet traction to me didnt seem bad, no matter the weather minus snow and ice (ga) has always felt planted,

i know these past few years, you've been hard pressed to find snow in GA anywhere except in the Appalachians, and damn near everything closes when there's a report of flurries down here anyways so i don't think we need to worry to terribly much about snow and ice performance.
