What tires did you put on your Challenger?

We have a 2017 Challenger 37LX. Baby needs new shoes. Looking at Toyos. What brand and size did you put on your Challenger and why? It's sorta slim pickin's right now with supply chain issues and prices are... Thanks!

Price mostly. The best price I could find on Michelin 255/80R 22.5 is $707.79. Also, it says they're summer tires. We'll be in VA in late October. Not expecting snow but icy conditions are not out of the question.


Best price I could find on the Toyo 265/75R 22.5 is $479.65. We put those on the front last year.



Price difference is $230 per tire, or over $900 total for the 4 rear tires. We don't expect to have this RV beyond next year so this is the last set of tires we will put on this RV.

I still don't believe it and not sure of the deal at the time, but last year I bought a brand new Goodyear G670 RV 245/70R19.5 for $150 for a Goodyear Tire & Truck Center. The date code was only 2 months old. The tire was regular $600. If I had somewhere to store then I would have bought 6. But I also was worried about date code as the tires (except for spare) would not be needed for years. I was told they had special promo but another dealer that was closer wanted $700 for the same tire, $100 more than the supposedly MSRP

I only researched Goodyear as it is my OEM tire and I am a cosmetic guy so I wanted all my tires to match, even if I have a flat.
