Looking for opinions on All Season or All Terrain Tires for the 19 inch wheels...

Live in Nebraska and the OEM Tires are completely worthless, Girlfriend can't even drive up the driveway with the slightest bit of snow or ice.

I have the P Scorps Snow an dIce on my 19's now. Go to test them during this last winte rblast. I live in the KC Metro, so kind of have the same conditions. They handles great. I was going 10 - 15 mph faster than everyone else and still felt comfortable. Got mine form Tire rack.

I am in KC during the week so I know exactly what you are talking about, do you run those year round ?

Where in Nebraska do you live?

My 'o8 19"s are a little slippery, however, they have been getting around pretty well.

Are these the original tires on the truck?

IMO, if they are for the wifey, get dedicated snows and swap them on/off each year. Pirelli Ice and Snows are great in the 19".

EDIT: Gf, either way; I learned the hard way on another car...

Wife has the Hankook Ventus RH07's on her RRS in 20". Got them in the summer so havent really tested them out in snow yet, but I'm sure they will be fine for the city driving (Toronto) she does...if I lived farther outside the city I would consider a dedicated snow tire.

Bobby has the right advice for your RRS, best I think to get two sets of rims on the truck as my aunty in Oakville, OT does not !

If your ride is the HSE model, see if you can pickup a set of OEM 18" rims which will give you a much better selection of Ice & Snow rubber as the 19" options are very limited if the 12 inch+ snow drops are on the cards which you've been experiencing ? ?

The Pirelli Scorpion ATR's or P-Zero's are ideal for the tarmac and summer, just depends on how much performance you expect.

I just swapped out the Conti's for the Pirelli Snow and Ice, I big thumbs up on them. I have the 20 inch rims but they had them for both sizes. The ride is as good if not better, and they look good as well with a low profile...

Have always heard great things about Pirelli Snow & Ice. I've had great experience with the Nolian WR G2s currently on my Cayenne(and previously with Bridgestone Blizzaks). Trying to figure out my winter setup on the RRS, too. Probably going Nokian on different wheelset.

On my Cayenne, although both sets of wheels are Porsche, one did not have the TPMS in them when I purchsed wheels & tires - I just shut off the monitoring in that vehicle. Preference would be to get LR wheels and install TPMS prior to mounting up a set for the RR
