I have a 09 Challenger SRT8 and I am in need of some new tires...specifically REAR tires. I would like some FATTER Rear tires to give our Challenger a more aggressive look. Any size suggestions that DO NOT need modification? I have the stock SRT8 wheels on the car.
Tires need to be able to handle Summer and Winter driving as my wife drives the car daily but it is a relatively short commute through town maybe 5-7 miles each way. I'm in St. Louis/IL area so it snows pretty good a few times in the winter. Any brand suggestions?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Looking specifically for 2 but possibly 4 depending on how much $. If 4 what front size do you suggest with a fatter rear tire?
Thanks in advance everyone!
For summer and winter you need all seasons. They are a compromise in both extremes though. The stock srt-8 rims are rated up to 275/XXZR20 The XX is up to you for the profile size.
Some go wider, but the tire manufactures recommend no greater than 275.
Personally I went with summer only, and winter only tires, for the best of both worlds.
