Went to Discount Tire to purchase my Continental Extreme Contact 315/35x20 50,000 mile warranty @$287.00 ea. Not available, called Continental they said not available till maybe October. Called other tire stores and no one has them. Bought Nitto Motivo $62.00 cheaper each with 60,000 mile warranty Discount tire warranty on tires that can't be rotated front to back, back to front is half. Anyone running these Nitto's. Sales person praised them. Robert

I just purchased 2 Continentals extreme contact 295/40x20s DWS06 sport plus from local Goodyear dealer
Not your size but had them in the warehouse.


But I didn’t need the larger tire size to carry all the bling that you carry

If they are available, I'd jump on it. Prices are going to go up. Oil prices going up, tire prices go up.

My SSR:
2005 red six-speed
Found the same to be true on the 315/35-20 Conti dws06, not available anywhere I could find online or off. Ended up getting TOYO Proxes 4Plus in that size from tirebuyer.com. Rumored to be made in the USA. Have them mounted but have not installed yet, polishing the chrome wheels while they are off! They have a nice asymmetric tread style, not directional, and XL load rating plus a wear rating of 560 I believe. They are also available in the 255/40-19 size I plan to install on the front. I found that if you want to match tires front and rear you must find a manufacturer and style manufactured and currently produced in both sizes you want! Goodboots on the front are almost new(I didn't put them there) so I am going to run them a bit longer.

Well I pulled the trigger today and ordered 4 Continental Tires for the R from Discount Tire. Never had a problem with the Goodyears! Just thought I would try something different!

Hey Tuckerred. Tell us a little about yourself and your truck. Yes I tried hi and low to find Conti's in 315/35x20 and no luck. From past experience someone is going to chime in and say they can get them by the dozens. That's just the way it is. What are you running on the front. By the way, with running different brands don't go to Springfield, Ill. If the SSR tire patrol sees a SSR he will track you down and ask WHY. Welcome to the Family. As you can see we (at least some of us) are a little on the off the wall side. Robert

Hey SWT RYD. Truck is a red 2005 version. We live in Tucker, Ga. thus the moniker. Front tires are relatively new replacements of the original GOODYEARS put on by previous owner. Rears were also original style & size but slap worn to the air in the middle, dangerous. Hate to just chunk the fronts, but probably will before long. I just did that when I went to a different wheel+tire size, 17x9.5" vette rims w/275/40-17 to replace original 16x8.0" rims w/255/50-16(yeah I know that's not original tire size) on my '99 Z-28 camaro. 16" tires are like new, but old! I will update my info before long, this is a learning experience, but I believe a valuable one if you plan to own an SSR. By the way I have the new TOYOs and freshly polished wheels on the truck and I like that combo. As I mentioned before will go with 255/40-19 version same tire on the front, hoping it will pass muster with the SSR tire patrol.Thanks, Tuckerred1948

Hi Robert, Eveyone
Wow I'm glad I picked up my new continental DWS06 in November.
255-40-19
315-35-20
I only waited 2 days for delivery .
On my trip from NJ to Florida and back they ran flawlessly , great traction ,better ride .
I drove in some torrential Florida downpours and didn't miss a beat .
Good luck and let us know how you like the new tires .

Hey Scott, can you post a couple of photos to show how they look and what the tread looks like too?

Thanks,

Marc

Oh yes Scott, I am looking forward to UAW/GM's contract and hopefully I will retire sometime shortly after it is ratified.

My SSR:
Chrome in and out, OH SO Orange stripes w/"warp speed" air brushed door accents.
Looks like it's also time for a "new pair of shoes" for my SSR.
I last replaced the tires on it just before the Flagstaff, AZ rally in 2011.

At that time the OEM's (Goodyear) were not available so I went with General Grabbers.

Looks like I'll also go with the Continentals this time.

As long as they're round and don't sound like an off-road mud buggy I'll be happy!

My SSR:
'05 Aqua Blur
Our R had a new set of Continental Extreme Contact 06 DWS Tuned when we bought it. They ride smooth, handle very well with very little road noise. Drove it home in driving rain from Seattle to northern Oregon coast and it pretty much felt glued to the road.

The previous owner said he had a heck of a time finding anything that would fit locally. Discount Tire apparently was able to get these (last November)...

245/45 ZR19 Front

295/40 ZR20 Rear

So far they seem great!

Cheers,

Rich
