Widebody Owners

Looking at purchasing a Widebody Scat Pack by the end of the month. I have a few questions for those of you that already own them.

1. I have seen that there is an issue with the wider tires causing a lot of rock chips/road rash. Other than splash guards, what product have you used to help stop it?
2. Does it matter whether you have the all season or summer tires?
3. Any regrets after buying one that makes you wish you had gone standard body vs. wide body?

Thanks in advance.

Ordered: 6/13/19 SPWB
VON: 6/13
VIN: 6/14
D1: 6/20
Paint: 6/22
Trim: 6/24
KZ: 7/5

1. The ZL1 Deluxe rock guards are great, you can also have some Xpel applied to the rocker panels and fenders

2. I have the all seasons, traction isn't great but the wider tires do help. I'll be getting some Nitto's in the near future. I'm sure the summer tires would help.

3. Im very happy with my decision on going with the widebody option. They look awesome in person, you get the stiffer springs for improved handling, devils rims that look great and the total widebody package is well worth it in my opinion!

Thanks for the input. Do the rock guards take away from the look of the Widebody at all?

I got the summer tires since I live in Las Vegas and already put on some splash guards on my Widebody. They do help some but I am still getting some splash marks on the rear flares.

They look good - very subtle. Thanks for posting the pics.

Chet, which dealer in Charlotte did you work with? I was looking but there's nothing interesting in stock at Keffer, Stateline or the new one in Pineville.

I ordered mine through Keffer in October 2018. I doubt they have any widebody's in stock. You would probably have to order one or search online at different dealerships around NC and SC. Cars.com is a good search tool.

What He said, I am getting some road rash on the unprotected leading edge of the rear flairs.
I like my all season P-zeros and have been okay with the performance. Granted, I have not ran them on a road course yet.

Mine is not a daily driver, so I didn't go with the splash guards. As mentioned earlier, I had XPEL protective film applied to the rockers/flares.

I actually sold my 2016 Challenger SRT392 in order to get the widebody. I love it and have absolutely no regrets.
