Default Looking for a good street tire.

Currently runnning proxes st1ís 305/50r20ís and liking but always looking for more traction. I noticed Toyo has a newer st3 now, Yokohama has a parada spec-x and the nitto has the 420ís which are pretty popular. Anyone have some experience with these or any new tires Iím missing? I donít tow much so not worried about the 8 vs 10 ply. Thanks!

I have the NItto 420's in a 305/50/20 and I am pretty happy with them so far. Its been raining on and off here where I'm at and traction hasn't been an issue. They are wearing nice and even and they are pretty quiet.

Iíve heard lots of good about the nitto 420ís too. Might try those next but still curious about what else is out there. The proxes st3 have really high traction ratings according to Toyo.

Tried nitto 420's and had no major complaints. Traction on dry and wet roads is great.

imo the proxes stick better than the 420s.
