It didnt take long (approx 19k miles) for the outer edge of my front tires to be completely bald. Now I need to replace them and possibly all 4.
What would be the best brand of tire and size to replace my old Goodyears?

<X>Red/Smoked LED tail lights

I just put on toyo proxes 4 (245 front and 275 rear) and love them. tread pattern is much more aggressive than the goodyears. not sure how they will be in snow though.
2008 300C SRT8
Previously: 2005 Bright Silver Magnum R/T
^^^ It would be 245/45 front, and 275/40 rear, in most cases. Those two end up being the same height.
I also have the Proxis 4's and love them. The difference in traction from the RSA's is night-and-day. They wear well, and they're Z-rated. They're pricey, but IMO, worth it.
Two other options with those fitments^^^ are:
Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta
I've had both, they are great - but I prefer the Vred's.
426 Stroker In Progress
I recently had 275/40/20 Hankook Ventus AS RH07 all season performance tires installed and love it out here in Southern Cali. - Best part is that i can rotate all 4 without the directional rotation issue.....(Rotate like normal) Also had them inflated with nitrogen.

I also went with Toyo Proxes plus 4's. They seem great, very sticky.
Since RSA's are so bad almost anything is an improvement. F1's are great if the road is dry and warm, anything else and they suck.
Also, Toyos are AMAZINGLY CHEAP! What a bargain! And they wear like iron.
There's no way in hell I'm putting SUV tires on my car.

Also, you should take a look at your camber (alignment), if you're wearing out the outer edged significantly faster than the inner.
I have had 4 brands of tires on my car and I wouldn't put anything but the Vredestein SUV tires on my car. They are tread and shoulders above any of the others I've tried. They can be had for a good price too.
(Waiting "patiently" for the 300C SRT8 8-speed) Coming.....soon?
I had both stock tires( rsa and f1), toyo proxy 4 and vredestein. This is how I round out my list from best to worst
10- highest 0-lowest ???- not enough miles to tell
1.Vredesteins - dry traction - 10 wet traction -10 wear - ????
2.Toyo Proxies 4 - dry traction - 8 wet traction - 9 wear - 10
3.Goodyear F1 - dry traction - 10 wet traction - 5 wear - 5
4.Goodyear RSA - dry traction - 6 wet traction - 4 wear -6

I believe I will go with the Toyo's. Next question, where to buy them? I see that 1010tires.com has them. Anyone ever ordered from this place?
