Leaning towards the General G-MAX RS based on price and the recent TireRack test

Yuk! That su_ks, as the kids say. How many miles on current tires? Also, Generals, not the Vredesteins?

Just curious as to what size you are getting.

They have about 20k miles on them. I'm sure TireRack would be happy to shave a $250 OEM tire down for me but why pay $250 for a tire I don't like when I could pay a bit over 2x for 4 tires I will like? Haven't really looks at the Vredesteins. They don't have much market presence in the US midwest. Do you have a model recommendation?

I'm probably looking at 225/45-18.

DiscountTire Direct has been running some ridiculous sales around US holidays lately so I'm going to wait until Labor Day to see what they've got.

In the mean time, I bolted up my backup track wheels/tires from my race car. ASA JH-1 (a.k.a Sport Edition A7) 18x8 ET38 2.5x10^45 lbs wheels wrapped in Hankook Ventus R-S3 V2 245/40-18 200tw tires.

From an appearance perspective, it's the worst of both worlds: a little bit of poke while maintaining the 4x4 look.

I may just leave these wheels/tires on the car (until the snow tires come out) and sell the OEM wheels with three good tires and one unrepairable one.
