Hi Folks I am trying to decide on a set of 20" tires for the Classic R/T. I don't use the car on the track just the occasional burnout so I am more interested in thread wear longevity than flatout traction and performance. I am looking at Goodyear Eagle Gt / Michelin Pilot A/S3 / Continential Extreme Contact DWS and General G-Max AS-03 . Car is only used in summer months. Any advice would be great , thanks

Well, in my opinion if you just want tires to spin, the Eagle F1's will do fine. They do handle well. I just never liked their grip. For me they just spun way too easy. People say they have good grip in the heat but I only drive my car in the late spring to early fall.

The AS/3 and the DWS will give the best performance of the ones listed. Even in bad weather should you get caught out in it.

We sell quite a few sets of both at the shop I work at.

The owner has the DWS on his personal car.

We have also put a couple of set of the AS/3 on some corvettes.

I have the AS/3's on my 2010 RT and think they are a great tire. No problems with them. Even been to NC and back with them last December. Bought them for the trip, otherwise the car never sees snow or ice.

Refer to the tire's Uniform Tire Quality Grade (UTQG) numerical rating. It indicates the expected tread life of a tire and the higher this number is the better. You can research tires on TireRack and sort the available tires by this rating.

I would recommend at UTQG rating of 400 or more. For the P245/45R20 tire, I found four tires with a rating of 500+. They are the Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season (560), Yokohama AVID ENVigor (560), Continental ExtremeContact DWS (540), and the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (500).

I hope this is helpful.

I just got a set of General G-Max AS-03 for my stock 18" wheels. I've been really impressed with them and the ratings are mostly, if not all, positive. Best bang for the buck IMO.
