I have 23,000 miles on my 04 and the rt. rear tire is nearly bald and the left one is not far behind.(does the right one wear faster?) My local tire place is having trouble finding me a replacement set for the rear so thanks for the info here. Any new info on how to replace all of the wheels with a same-sized tire and then purchase a mini spare. Also disappointed even before the Chrysler's dealership closing here that they couldn't work on my Crossfire. What was Damimler/Chrysler thinking when they came up with different sized tires and no spare?

i don't remember what the Conti tread depth was when my '04 was new but with just over 11K miles of mixed driving with speeds up to about 120 (i'm not as brave as some of you)i have about 1/4 inch of tread depth left - i don't know if thats good or bad but i have no complaints about the tire performance - when it comes time to replace i will absolutely use the same size tires and maybe even stay with Conti's - the car was engineered with that size and those tires and call me old fashioned but i usually stay with what the car was engineered with - just thought i'd throw my two cents worth in - be safe out there.

I just bought a set of Goodyear F1 all season tires to replace the continentals that came stock with the 05 SRT-6. They only had 17,438 miles on them. I may have gotten another thousand or so but one of the rears had a delimitation and went flat every other day and couldn't be fixed. I will say that I am very happy so far with the Goodyears. They seem to run quieter and they don't ride the ruts in the road like the Conti's did. I will know more later with more drive time on them. I will keep you all posted. They only cost me $930 for all including mounting and balancing at Americas Tire's in Beaverton Oregon. Good luck and have fun.

I have 36,000 miles on my 2005 Roadster and in need of another set of rear tires... I have Hancook Ventus (cheap) on the front & rear and my car rides the ruts to the point that it is scary, the "Chrysler guy" said to go back to the Continentals and it will go straight?? Now I don't know which tires to buy!!

We have just about 31,000 miles, and the rear are nearing a need for replacement. The front have a little more life in them. They are the Stock Tires,(Continental) and they seem to follow the ruts terribly. Think I will try another brand. my 2 cents on Continentals...

Yea, my Continentals ride the ruts in a bad way, also...

My 06 Crossfire: Tires: Contenentials - 28k miles, Then put on Goodyear Eagle F1s- 30K miles , then put on General UHPs - 27K miles, then put on a set of Michelins - currently have 16k miles on these and tire cords showing on inside of tread on back. I do drive hard, or at least fast take offs, quick stops. The michelins are the worst, the best in my opinion is the Goodyear F1s. Balanced most sets at least 4 times during life of tire. The Michelins i have balanced 4 times in 8 months. Finally figured just buy the cheapest as you have to replace them so darn often.

I've had two Crossfires-a 05 and now an 07. Both ate tires at alarming rate. Each car was equipped with Continental brand tires. I replaced the 05 tires at 24K and again at 38k. The O5 had Contisport Contact tires on it. The 07 came with Sport Contact 2 - supposedly better wear characteristics - haha! I'm on my 3rd set now! Changed the 07's tires at 21K and again at 35K. Went with Sport Contact 3's which were supposed to be better - wrong! Believe it or not the rears were nearly bald after 5K miles. I replaced them again with the same tires only because I got a great deal on them. I fully expect to replace them again by the end of next summer but not with Continentals - probably go with a high quality Goodyear, General or Michelin. Other then the tire situation I love the car! BTW - I don't run the car particularly hard!

I am on my second Crossfire. My first, a 2004, was a dream! I leased for three years. I kept it until i had to give it back. Tires were solid and dependable. Now I have a 2008. Continential tires, at 17,000 miles are bald! Just put 4new ones on today. Calling to discuss warranty is ridiculous. Have been made to feel like I am a headcase. If i could get rid of it tomorrow, I would.

Please help. I just purchased a 2005 Crossfire 2d convertible from CarMax. I'm still within the 5 day return window and noticed 2 significant problems; 1. the car pulls significantly when there are grooves (or imperfections) in the road and on a straight away veers to the right 2. significant wind noise (a gap?) in the rear of the driver/passenger window.

The tires are...Front: Both Pirelli P Zero Nero 245/40/ZR18 93W M+S, Rear Driver: Bridgestone 255/35/ZR19 96Y MO, Rear Passenger: Potenza 255/35/ZR19 96Y MO

Could the tires be the problem? Can the gap be fixed?

I have never gotten more than 24000 miles from a set of tires on my Crossfire, and I drive like an old bag. This last set has lasted 1 year, 13,000 miles; not too happy considering the way I drive, and the cost of replacement of Mich's. hmppppp

YES! four different tires is obviously the cause of your problem.

TIRES: I have to replace my tires. Sounds like sacrilege but I prefer full rims rather than low profile (harsher ride, poor tending to acqua-plane in water); wondering if Crossfire handles full wheels and suitable tires well?

Just purchased a 2005 roadster and it needs tires. Has anyone used Michelin or General Tires?
