So, do you prospective owners think that the new Dodge 'Challenger' will come equipped with a set of Goodyear 'Eagle F1 Supercar' tires, and if so, what do think the tire/wheel size options might be; i.e., 20" front/rear staggered set-up? ;)

Who knows what tires it will get. The Goodyear ones may not be so rare in a few years. I am sure there will be some other new whiz bang tire by the time this car hits dealers.

I would hope they go with a top rated tire for these cars. Like I have said before, keep the retro all the way. Muscle cars always had top tires on them..i.e., better the package the better the tire...generals, Big O..loved those. Make the car a 'complete' package.

I'd sure like to see a wide tire/wheel combo on the rear of the 'Challenger' like in Doug Schramm's concept photos...similar to the 19" Goodyear 'Eagle F1 Supercar' tire set-up currently running on rear of the new 'Ford GT'. :cool:

I have them on my 300C. Mounted on 20 x 9 Zinik Z-12 black spokes.
Best tire I ever owned. Car handles like a slot car and not really that bad in rain.

Vette uses the offest tires in the front and back, same F-1's- THey run great on there as well. New CHallenger has to have larger fatter tires in rear.

(Of course they are off for the winter.

Hopefully not...they should be using the (SRT model) 22-inch (305/35X22) for the rear setup to ensure more rubber meets the pavement and stability in high-speed cornering.

Which 'SRT' (non-truck) model might you be referring to which is currently running OEM 22" tires/wheels? :confused:

I believe that the size I remember seeing on the rear of the new Ford 'GT' is a P315/40ZR19...a nice wide tire, so I guess a P305/35ZR22 running on the rear of the new generation Dodge 'Challenger' would certainly 'fit the bill!' :D

i would most likely get new tires and rims for my challenger. i am not really in love with the rims they have on the concept and i would want to have the back wheels larger than the front ones for the full muscle car effect.

Well, that's certainly an 'aftermarket' possibility, as the current concept is rumored to have 21's on the rear and 20's up front. :cool:
