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.
