Hello Folks

I need a small favor from ya'll. What would be the max tire size I can go with, for my 2017 SRT392 stock wheels.
I need bigger tires but not sure if I should go for 295 or 305. I am not sure if the 305s are going to bother the driveshaft.

Also I have heard that the NT555 Nitto's have slight smaller scale so we can go for NT555 305s for the car.

Would it be better if I change all 4 tires with 305s so that I can rotate the tires after every 5000 miles.

Thanking in advance.

295/40s will work in the rear, I wouldn't go any bigger on the front. Bondurant uses 285s all around but they are 35s and shorter, the 275/295 gives a nice look on stock wheels.

305s are too wide for the stock rims to be able to effectively take advantage of their width. On stock rims you really arent getting much if any more contact patch. They "fit" but you get much more tire on the road with the correct width rim

305s wont fit on the front using stock rims.

If you want more traction, get replica 10.5" rims and 305s for the rear and either keep 275s or get 285s for the front. unsure if 295s fit the front without turning issues.

OR get a good set of rims with correct offsets to accomodate what you want to run


hellcat.org has a ton of 305 tire/rim info

I agree but if I go with 295 on all 4 wheels would that be a problem. The advantange I see is while rotating the tires during oil change. Any thoughts

Thanks a ton for your feed. So you are saying that 305 / 35 at the rear would not be an issue technical wise. And in front I go for 285/35 . So in that case how would I rotate the tires as the front and rear have diff sizes.

295/40 gonna be too big in the front I'm afraid, I wouldnt do it and rotating is overrated, your not gonna get much miles on them either way. :D

Sure , in that case, if I go with 305/35 at the back , should I go with 285/35 in the front or 285/40 in front?

I'd either leave the 275 in front or do the 285/35.

Use tire rack and look at the treadwith numbers and pick something within a half inch of your wheel size. Tire numbers mean nothing since they aren't standardized. I've seen 265s with more tread than a 285.

I'd get these https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Pilot+Sport+Cup+2&sidewall=Blackwall&partnum=635YR0PSC2XLN1&tab=Specs

Thank you so much. I am going for the 305/35 Rear and 285/35 front. really Appreciate it Slidd :D :x
305/35 on the rear won't work. And wider isn't always better. The height of the sidewall is more important than the width. Your 274/40's are a pretty good size.

Agree, I've left my 275s alone, especially in the front, it's perfect.

This car is 275 front and 295 rear on stock wheels, really can't go much bigger.

That is true. So 275/40 on front and 295/40 rear. Will this be good?

And what can happen if I try to put 305/35 on the rear and just let it run. Any drawbacks in damaging anything in the car?

It becomes a safety issue, as well as a matter of diminishing returns.

Blowing a bead when the sidewall rolls, etc. Not worth it.
