Any experience with this tire? I'm due for a set and I was looking at this one.
2017 5.7 R/T with 275/40 R20

Feel free to recommend / discuss any other Summer Performance tire with a decent lifetime (has a treadwear around 320-360).
I don't want P-Zeros or Hankook Ventus with a treadware of 220, they will last me 5k miles..
Don't care about snow or cold weather, I live in SoCal.

Thank you in advance.
I had a staggered set on my 2013 R/T. Only lasted about a year and a half because because of an alignment battle. I went back to the AS version of these tires but in 275/40 on all 4 corners because of the mileage warranty from BFG. Honestly like the AS ones more for "spirited driving" on local roads. The summer ones probably perform better, but never got to fully test on them before they were completely toast.

softer compound grips better in all circumstances. Downside is the softer wears way faster and then add in the heat of the environment and the rough as sin asphalt roads in the south and tire wear is exceedingly fast. Western roads are probably similar to southern roads in that your not repaving long stretches like is done in the NE and MW where the freeze unfreeze breaks the roads up requiring more frequent repaving, thus smoother surfaces and less wear.

Does that make sense or sound like complete BS.

Here is my tire vendor! I buy tires from you guys in all my cars (I had a lot of them) since forever. Your local shop is my preferred tire place, great service, very happy. Let me know if you have any kind of comparison test between this BFG & other tires. Thank you for the input.
@razteo Thank you for your business and the shoutout!

To answer your question - There have been a ton of recommendations for product, all of which are great tires in their own regard. The thing to keep in mind is tires are really a product of compromise, meaning no tire will score 5 out of 5 in every performance attribute. The data we have is geared more towards matching a customers true need with the product that will deliver the characteristics that are most important to them, along with their driving habits and road conditions that the tire will see.

I have them on my SRT 426 stroker, they have like 40,000 on them, still 50% tread. They will not hook up with my power, but I don't street race and use slicks at the track.
Flame, if your tire will hook up to your liking with a 426, they may be what I'm looking for. However, your comment "I have them on my SRT" has made me realize that I lost which tires "them" are. Can you please tel me what you have. I've lost track, my bad.

The G Force Comp 2 all seasons. They really don't hook for shit but I don't really street race, and use slicks at the track. They wear great though, I have 30k on them and they are half tread or so, and I don't really baby them either. Great in the rain for sure.

I’m still in the honeymoon phase with the General GMAX Ultra RS Tires. So far, the most notable difference from the stock rear tires is that I no longer peel out at every turn coming out of a stop.

Seem to be really sticking.

No, don't get the sport comp 2's, get the BFG gforce comp 2, not the sport comp 2. Those don't last and don't have a warranty mile rating .
This one is good

I have Nitto Motivio's on my car currently. 60,000 mile rated. Been happy with them.

245/45/20 in front
275/40/20 in back
So can't rotate em, but if I get close to 60k...like 40-45 k ,I'll be Happy. I don't race my car.

The wider ones are a little under $200 at around 190-195 depending on where you get em.
