I'm looking for a tire highly rated for tire wear, traction, low- noise. I'm not tracking the car, or even driving that aggressively. I just want the best tire for the money, and best puncture resistance since I can't carry a spare.

What? So, you're saying your car came with two different oddball sizes from the factory? Check the tire placard on the door frame.
Yup. It's in the build sheet. Mine came with staggered size Goodyear's according to the build sheet, though it's listed under the "optional equipment" listing.
My tire placard is gone. I'd like to order a new one, but that's another story. Pretty sure the car was wrecked at least once.

Ok, those are not staggered though. Staggered is 245/45/20 and 275/40x20, the same diameter. The rears are an inch taller than the fronts which a factory would never do. PLEASE, look it up on Tire Rack and let us know, or give us the car info and we'll look it up for you. I'll be you two rear tires the factory didn't do that! 😁
Did you just say you bet two new rear tires the factory NEVER installed different sizes front and rear? I'll give you an example right now: 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda and 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A; E60/15 Goodyear Polyglas GT on the front; and G60/15 Goodyear Polyglas GT on rears.
I figure $600 should pretty much cover 2 new rear tires for the Chally srt8.

Like I said, it's in the damn build sheet: front 245/45zr20, rear 255/45zr20. I'll take a USPS money order for $600(rounding down). Obviously, Dodge didn't get your approval before they chose to put in different size tires front to rear. It may not make sense to you or even me, but Dodge built it that way. Equally obvious, Dodge didn't care about tire rotation. Hell, they didn't even include a spare tire, probably because there's insufficient room in the trunk for that big of a tire. And if there was room, which size tire would you choose for the spare?
