Hey I just put the Nitto 420s on my R/T wheels and they are great tires. I put the 305/45/22 on at first and I didnt like the way they looked on my lowered truck. They just looked too big and they hit the fender liner and sway bar at full turn so I went back to the 285 tire size.

I would say nitto I have never had good luck with falken tires they wear out fast. I am ordering nitto tires for my cobalt ss and I have bfg's on my trans am. Both seem to have good handling and don't wear out as fast. Although I did buy Goodyear duratracs for my ram. Think these have to be the 1st decent set of Goodyear tires I have even owned all my others were trash.

Although I did like the yokahama 285's I had on my 22's on my trailblazer they looked new after 2 years and 35k and handled great

I'd seriously consider Yokohama Parada SpecX. I had the Nittos, ditched them after a couple of weeks. I absolutely hated them. Worse tire I've ever had on any truck I've had. Not saying ALL Nittos are crap, but mine definitely were. They shook and pulled like crazy. I had all 4 balanced 3 separate times until I finally had Discount yank them and put the Yokos on it. (305/45-22) Best thing I have done to it yet. Nice and smooth. All around best tire I've owned. Wet or dry, these tires seriously hook! I feel very secure in the rain with them. I put the Nittos on when I switched to 22s and thought there must be something wrong with the wheels. Not the case. It was the tires all along.

(not bashing Nitto.... just had much better luck with the Yokos)
