Bored and I have a little money to spend. What should I do next to my car? Coilovers? Better tires? I'm running stock tires right right now. Upgrade the brakes? Looking for something in the 1k-ish and under category. I have a 2015 5.7 with the STP package.

What I've done so far:

Hellcat air box with upgraded air filter
Barton shifter
Tinted windows
3" Catback exhaust with quad tips

I think better tires. Not sure what size your wheels are but a set of 275/40/20's seem to be popular! something I plan on doing on mine.

wheels make the car, they also can drop wieght which improves overall perf.
Tires make or break the cars ability to put any perf mods, down to the pavement, improve drive quality, etc. Stock tires on nearly every dodge, flat suck.
Not sure if you could realistically do both for $1k, but thats where Id start.

Lowering springs really change the look

Are you planning on replacing all 4 with 275's? Or just rear?
My 2020 came with 275 for all 4. That way you can rotate the tires from front to back instead of side to side. I know having wider tires on the back looks more drag spec but I would stick to all 4

I’d like to run 275’s on all 4 corners but I keep hearing mixed things about running them on the front. If anyone can chime in with some info that would be cool haha

HID or LED headlight bulbs, if you haven't yet. Make sure to aim them accordingly to avoid blinding others on the road. How about upgrading the audio system?

What are your mod goals? Do you want your Challenger to look better/different/more personalized or want it to handle better, go faster? The answer to this question will get you a more definitive answer to your question.

A Guy's suggestion to lowering springs is a good one. Dropping your car even an inch will change the attitude (or altitude of your Challenger too :)) and make her look meaner. It more than likely will also improve handling.

275/40-20 square on 9" to 9.5" with correct offset (as found on OEM wheels, and replicas) will be fine on a R/T (non SRT)
