okay, so I go and put some new eagle f1 supercars on the back of the challenger. i floor the car while doing 30 mph, and yup, back end kicks out a little..wth? it is 50 degrees outside, but is this normal I thought they were supposed to be sticky. I have a feeling I am going to have an issue with the maggie bolted on... is it just because its colder outside?

There are a lot of things that can cause your lack of traction- cold weather, road composition, tire air pressure, and additional power caused by colder, denser air.

Its probably the temperature. I have the RSAs on my SRT and the same thing happens to me when the temperatures are about 50 degrees or below.

Not trying to be smart but, did you check this forum before you purchased them. There are posts all over that talk about how horrible the f1's are. I had a set on my SRT and they were garbage. 12000 miles later they were junk, front and rear. Lots of luck with them, didn't mean to rain on your parade.
p.s. at the end of their life I sealcoated the church's driveway with them. Pastor laughed up a storm-he has a '69 Chevelle SS.

I now have Nitto 420s'. They are actually a SUV tire but with as fat as my Challenger is they work great. I do not need 170 mph tires because I am old and decrepid!

Tires designed for SUV's (Vredesteins were designed for sport SUV's) are GREAT for our car's handling as the sidewall is THICK to handle the weight of a SUV (similar to our cars)... prevents the roll over.

The NT05's have a nice thick sidewall too. Add in a treadwear rating of 180 and BAM! Sticky, supportive tire for our monsters!

I got em cheap and couldnt afford a whole set of new tires this year (money going towards maggie in a week), but I dont remember the tires being this bad when I first got the car... am I wrong, and I will agree, I have 9000 on the car, back tires were gone

Dismounted the F1,s at just 1000 miles. Had to wait 2 months but mounted the Nitto05's 275/40/20's on all four corners! Would not beleive how fun they are. I will sell you the F1's if you really like them.

Since they wear out very fast,who could sell them cheap so we can change them every 10 000 miles?
Tire rack= 286.00$
discount tire = 299.00$
Mabe a groupbuy?

That's a horrible treadwear rating no matter how good the tire is.
