So they are 9lbs heavier than the Pirellis, and 1.2" larger in circumference. Your speedo will be off a bit and those sidewalls will feel stiff.

They are .72” taller.
And I doubt the sidewalks are going to be stiffer than the run flats.

Yes, have not mounted them yet.

The ones wheels will become the winter setup wheel. New wheels in spring.

Tirerack details for the stock size Pirellis vs The DM-V2's in the above are 1.2" larger in circumference.

I have a set of winter rims from my 15 SRT. They just clear the front calipers. Do you know if they will fit over the TH calipers? I know they are bigger but are they thicker than the SRT ones?

I'm reviving this thread as our new TH has the 3-season Pirellis. The tread pattern looks aggressive enough for winter driving. We get snow here but the streets are generally always clear so we aren't dealing with deep snow....just cold temps. Has anyone driven in light snow and cold temps on these tires?

3 season tires and snow?

Just imagine how your 5klb truck would drive with skis under the tires.

Because you don't deal with much depth of snow you don't need snow tires. However, because of the cold temps and the possibility of icy conditions you will need winter tires. Winter tires do not have very aggressive tread depth, but they are made of a softer compound and have many sipes (thin slits) which help to grab in the cold. Winter tires are also much quieter than snow tires which is nice. The 3 season tires are okay down to about 7C or 45F. After that you would probably benefit from a softer compound. If your temps stay above -10C or 14F you could even consider getting all seasons and just taking it easy when it's in the temps below freezing. Cheers from the great white north.
