Best tires for 20's?

I had a blow out the other day and want to get something sticky if its out there. I got the Pirelli P-Zero Rosso 345/25/20 right now. They seem to work pretty good for what they are. I mainly dig race the car so i wanted to see if there was anything else out there that might be better in that 20"

Michelin Pilot Sport 2s are stickier than the Pirellis for a 20" tire. However, some find the looks of the sidewall to be much less appealing.

The good news is that your decision should be easy right now as there is only one tire available in a 20" size to fit a viper rear (the Michelin PS2 335/30-20). My understanding is that Pirelli is no longer making the Rosso's in the size you have and unless you can find someone with left over stock they are difficult to obtain.

I also have heard that Nitto should be introducing a similar size tire as the Rosso and it should be available in the next couple weeks which will at least give you another option.

It will be interesting to see how the Nitto's compare to the PS2s.

i called discount on those nitto invo tires and they got them. I guess from the threads nobody has tried them yet?

looks like the Pirelli is on national back order. They are being made now but will not be ready for 2-3 months. Looks like ill be giving those nittos a try

I have 4 Pirelli 345/25/20 Rossos brand new right now, but I'm planning on mounting them and selling with wheels. I personally don't like the look of the nitto ( looks like a honda civic tire design only wider)

As noted the PS2 is the closest thing IMO to the Pirelli but it is actually smaller, and a little stretched on a 13" wheel. I have them on my RT/10 and am very happy with them 325/25/20. I will be able to get more Pirelli's very soon if any one is interested. **The ones I have right now would take some REAL coaxing to get off me.....but I would sell them LOL

damn it i just got a call and now nittos are on back order. From what DTD said the ps2 is 1" taller then the 345's. Anyone lower their car and have a problem with this? My car is lowered and im thinking it might rub
