Now you have me considering that route. I was going to get the BFG comp2 and put 275 in back with 245 front. Hmm

Thanks, I appreciate it..

Since you had these on the track, were they 245's in the front you were testing or larger? And, was it a road course? Just curious. I eventually want to take my car to a road course and I'm just curious how these large tires will handle throwing this car around!

We tested them on several vehicles in different sizes. Unfortunately we did not write down the size for each vehicle we were in.

Here is a link to the complete article with photos that we posted on this site.

Purchased a pair of Sport Comp 2 275/40/20's for the rear of my 2011 from one of your competitors and I must say that I loved the tires while they lasted... problem being they now have 12,000 miles on them and have been smooth the past 1000 plus miles... I'll be placing an order through you in the next day or so for four 245/45/20 falken fk452's and a pair of General G-MAX AS-03's to put on the back for the winter months... thanks for supporting our community!

BFG g-Force Comp-2 Review

Let us know if you have any further questions.
The biggest different I see in the BFG comp2 vs. Nitto Motivo is the tread-wear - I have a 09 SRT8 (stock) and looking to put Nitto Motivo 275/40R20 on all 4 corners.

The other difference is that the Motivo is an all-season performance tire where the Comp2 is a performance summer tire.

Guys,

Done a LOT of reading - I know folks have run 275/40R20 on all 4 corners - I like that idea for rotating - is there any reason I should not do this other than the argument the "SRT engineers" don't recommend more than 255 on the front?

I'm ready to buy and I'm looking for feedback on the following

4X Nitto Motivo 275/40R20 on stock SRT Alcoa rims

or

2X Nitto Motivo 275/40ZR20 on stock SRT Alcoa rims (rear)
2X Nitto Motivo 245/45ZR20 on stock SRT Alcoa rims (front)

(I can't find 255/45ZR20 Motivo's for the front, but I'd get that if I could)

Need all season tires for my daily driver. I live in GA (no snow to worry about, just rain). Stock suspension (not lowered).

Thanks in adv!

Mark

I went with Nitto 05R drag radials on the rear, pics attached. 315/35/20. They're made for 10" wide wheels, and ours are only 9", but they fit. They bulge out a bit, but I kind of like that. They look mean. They really grab the street too. At the track, I couldn't beat 13.9 b/c my stock tires would spin in 1st and 2nd. When I floored it in 2nd, the tires would spin and skip all the way to red line. I basically got no acceleration in 2nd gear as a result. Put the Nitto 05Rs on and now it sticks good and I can accelerate. Time went down to 13.1. I know I'm supposed to be at 12.5, but my altitude density and heat is high here in Arizona (yeah, that's what I keep telling myself, it's not b/c I don't know how to drive a stick).

I love having the drag radials on my car, but keep in mind, I live in Phoenix Arizona, it doesn't rain much here. And when it does, I drive my truck. I have yet to drive the Challenger in the rain with the drag radials. I imagine my back end would slide around a lot.

wow. .8 of a second faster with just the tires with the NItto's? that seems really good to me. i will think of getting those next for time when i get to change the tires ^_^

you think it will do just as good with my SRT8 with just the two back tires radials?

I shaved .8s b/c the stock tires wouldn't stick to the pavement and the Nitto's do. You should only put drag radials on the rear. I kept the stock tires on the front.
