That looks SWEET! Perfect stance and the rims are very nice.

Would love to know how you like the Continental's. I'm thinking about the same tire. I don't drive it all winter, but I'm curious if they handle well in rain as well.

I am a big fan of the DWS06 tires. I've had them on my 2014 SS Sedan for over 60K miles. These tires are great in the wet and do fine in the snow. I drove in light snow last night & this morning without any issues.

I almost fell 3 times walking to my Challenger this morning due to the ice. Car was parked outside but the remote start had my heated seats & steering warm & windows clear. I drove away like I was driving on a tacky mat. I drove 200 miles on ice roads last night without a single slip.

Here is the inside clearance of the 275/40/20 on a 20x9 +38 rims. No rubbing anywhere. Barely a week old and I have 1,500 miles on my new tires already..

Still getting used to seeing an axle shaft @ the front hub...its like that when looking at a Mercedes, and realizing it has 4-Matic (AWD system).

Looks like a very different front strut, with that long U-bracket that has go around the half shaft.

Good hear those DWS06's grip well. You've been doing some serious driving there.

BTW - invest in a pair of Yak Trax. I slipped an fell on ice in January...took a split second and I hit the ground hard.
-the slip over the sole of any shoe / boot and its like having cable chains for your shoes.

It resulted in a very expensive surgery for an titanium implant and to rebuild my elbow...and it gets very expensive.

I have almost 6,000 miles on my new (Dec 13th) tires already and over 2,000 of that has been on snow or ice roads. These tires are awesome. My son just put some DWS06s on his 2016 Camaro 2SS and loves them.

We rented a Chalet in northern Washington for a long weekend and ran into snow leaving the Oregon Coast then again getting to where we were going,

Thanks for all the great info! Lifelong Mopar guy, first time Challenger owner. GT model finally made the purchase "somewhat" practical. Just placed my order for my summer rims, need 2 sets here in New Hampshire. Will upload some photos once on the car.
