Bought a 2018 Scat Pack and from what I'm hearing, the vehicle is drastically "Under-tired". I live in an area where snow fall is normal, but I drive interstate all of the time so the roads are solid.

What is the best tire to replace stock with, all while staying on the same rim?

I've heard 305/35 and 315.

Thanks for all the help and sorry if this is a redundant question.

If you have a recommendation please state the size and brand.

My vote would be Continental DWS-06’s if your asking for brands.

I would look into 275/40r20s. LOTS of us run them on all 4 corners with zero issues. Got lots of choices in that size too :)

If you have the stock 9" wide wheels, the maximum tire width is 275/40-20. Anything wider will not wear or perform properly.

A 305/35-20 needs a 10-10.5 inch wheel, while a 315/35-20 needs a 10.5-12.5 wheel.

Welcome to Challengertalk MrDream. Stock 20x9" wheels, widest recommended is 275/40R20. The Continental EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 are highly rated, and do pretty well in snow

I like my BFG G-force Comp 2 All seasons UHP. (275/40's on the rear only) Much better wet traction than the summer F1's. They are a few bucks less than the Conti's with a similar rating, but are directional tread. Only have about 3K on them so far.

Another vote for the Continental DWS's here.

We've had them on our past three cars and they are Fantastic tires. They have a 50k mileage warranty on them and they honor it if they do wear quicker.

We use them on our daily driver and they work decent in up to a couple of inches of snow (they may work in deeper snow too, but we have dedicated snow/winter wheels and tires and a couple of inches is all we've had them in).

You could get away with 275's all the way around on the 9" rims.
