Honestly, with your car being a DD and the cold *** weather you get, for safety reasons yes I believe r888's will be your best bet. If it wasn't a DD I would say get the nt05r's.

Now when summer gets here you can swap to the nt05r's. Just would not run them during the winter where you are.

NT05Rs and then if you want to handle a bit better swap out the front tires for something better.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

So do I. It's mainly good for drag racing. But staggered set ups can also be good for corners if you know how to set up the suspension for them properly.

Yeah, don't most sports cars, like Porches, Corvettes, heck even the GT500, have a staggered set up?

Correct. And they are even a double staggered, or whatever you call them. The rears are wider and larger wheel diameter. My parents 03 Corvette is 245s on a 17 in front and 275s on an 18 on back.

So is it (double staggered wheels) due to the way front and rear suspension components are set up? Or if it actually aids in better handling/traction/grip over single staggered system?

For summer tires do you have to have same brand/type on all 4 corners? I know for winters you have to have them on all 4 tires to be safe. I was thinking if you can run DWS on front (for their wet grip) and Mickies on rear for hook up?
I am using Nankang AS1's 255/40/18 on the front & Yokohama 275's on the rear with no problems.

Not sure if this helps but I work for atd,American tire distributors, it's a huge warehouse that delivers to ntb, all ford Chevy Cadillac every dealership you can think of , Walmart ,Firestone ,Goodyear discount tire ,etc and all the small tire shops in town every tire comes with the company logo and the reasons on them. Most of the tires delivered have a thread wear rating between 300-500 which aren't very good at all and that's what I see them installing (Goodyear eagles)on all brand new 2014 Cadillac escalades. I mean if your paying 50k for and escalade you deserve better tires.anything over 800 is excellent for your vehicle
