Hello,
I've been lurking around this forum for sometime - its great. Quick question can i fit tyres 275/45/20 on stock SRT8 wheels in the rear? The one i got from the dealership here has 245/45/20 in the front and rear:( looks skinny from the rear. I've read that SRT engineers claim that we can fit 275 rear + 255 front, no issues. Wanna confirm r these 275/45/20? So hard to get any info on SRT8 challenger coz there is only around a dozen in the whole country - Im not in US.

This site has helped me to modify my car: T-shifter, pedal kit, door sills, wheel locks, tyre valve caps etc for looks...
Ive just ordered CAI, Long tube headers and Cat back all Mopar for more HP/sound. Thanks

They're great, actually awesome, on the street but awful at the track is our experience on a lot of HEMI cars. I'm looking forward to Mickey Thompson's 20" drag radial hitting the market around February/March timeframe as well. Saw them last week and they look killer.

For the track, there's just no replacement for a lighter, smaller (as in 17") drag radial like our Bogarts (HHP private labeled) or our Welds. Based off weight alone, we typically see a two to three tenth drop in ET's with these smaller, lighter wheels on the rear.

how do the MTs differ from the nitto NT05s from what you could tell?

They look to be a softer rubber, they may wear a little quicker with aggressive driving but they probably will hook up a lot better.

Are those the drag radials? How do they work at the track?
They are DR's, I dont run them on the street, I have 295 BFG KDW's for that.

They hook up pretty well at the track with low pressure and heated up when my car had mild bolt on mods, since I added the KB I need more tire.

cool, thanks for the heads up. i got a while before i need tires, but that will be be interesting to see head to head comparisons when they come out.
