I need new tires, preferaby all season...

i currently have Hankook 275/45's. Thinking about going Nitto 420S going forward...im sitting around 30.5 all around (AWD)

I like how the Hankooks fill the wheel well, but if i go to the 265/50 Nitto 420's are they as tall as the Hankooks? i dont want to switch tires and then find all kinds of space in the wheel well, as stupid as that sounds...

I'm at 30.5" all around and have 265/50/20s up front with no rubbing. I have 295/45/20s out back and that doesn't rub either

i thought there were guys at 30 or 30.5 that were using Nitto 420S without a rubbing issue...

how you like em and what did you pay?
I think they're ok but wish I wouldve done the general grabbers instead. I don't think they hooked well (when my trans worked) but I have a few mods. I paid $800 mounted, balanced, installed and a alignment

im not spinning being awd so hooking isnt a thing i worry about - noise and wear is what i look for - i guess $650 out the door for 275-45-20 is a good deal then b/c im getting them done in an hour. for another $5ea wheel, they will rebuild the tpms sensors so they dont corrode

They're quieter than stock for sure. I've only had mine for 3k miles so I can't tell you how they wear. $650 sounds like a good deal

so there are choices out there!

Nittos i think only have a 265/50 thats close to stock size...
Falken STZ's in which size? how much do they go for typically?
Ive heard mixed reviews on the grabbers...they have a good looking tread but how are they for wear and tear?? I'm AWD too so im not too concerned with hooking at all, lol
