    To me traction is more about compound & tread design than width. But, the trade off is mileage versus traction.

    Besides the tire itself, gonna depend heavily on how you drive. I got nearly 24K out of a rear pair of BFG Sport Comp 2's. Yes, they were squirrelly for quite a while before I decided they were finished, but that's still more than I expected out of them. No rotation, lived on the back of the car from brand new to replacement. I do mash on the pedal from time to time but I don't do burnouts or track the car..

    Because those tires are not even CLOSE to the same P Zeros that came on these cars.

    Not all tires from the same manufacturer are made the same. For example OEM Goodyears usually do pretty good in wear, but the "replacement" ones do not. The idea being they make the tire better for use by the OEMs so that customers will buy them again. That comes from years of selling and servicing them for Sam's club.

    Pirelli likely does something a bit different, make really cheap tires for OEMs to help cut cost. The Mustang guys have long complained about their OEM Pirelli's for the same reasons guys here complain. And Ford is absolutely after selling Mustangs as cheap as possible. Because the reality is most who buy Mustangs and Chargers will never drive them like many of us do on this forum. We are minority. Personally I have good experiences with non-OEM Pirellis. I'd imagine the tires they mount to supercars aren't cost savings oriented like ours.

    And you have provided zero proof to counteract anyone's statements so far. Do you even know what they are complaining about in regards to OEM Pirellis?

    update... on my first day of real driving, these tires would have more traction if they were banana peels on an ice floor.... I'm not feeling good about my decision and I'm hoping that they just need to wear in a bit but so far they are worse than the OEM Goodyear RSA's that came on my first scat... man I think I messed up... they were spinning in spots that even my 2/32 pirelli's still had some bite on LOL...Meanwhile today I heard a commercial from Firestone that claimed satisfaction guaranteed for 90 days on all tire purchases no questions asked LOL... I'm sure that doesn't include us but I might have to go complain anyhow...and before you bite my head off, yes I understood these are A/S going in but I guess I under estimated the difference between these and the summers... now what ??

    My '16 5.7 R/T came with Firestones. The ones you picked up (A/S) are not really the performance oriented tire - the Firehawk GT is more "performance-oriented" but even those are almost useless with just a 5.7. The GT's barely lasted 20K miles on my car, and did not really hook well once they got to about 15K miles. I couldn't imagine an extra 100hp from the 392 - on those tires, it's probably funny and scary at the same time LOL. The Indy 500 tire is a summer only tire, might be better suited to your location and car. Hopefully they'll honor that 90-day guaranty if they don't start hooking up and you can switch them.

    HOPEFULLY it's just the release compound hasn't burned off yet. They won't grip like the Contis, but should be decent.

    My dad (even though he's old) still brags about his 300's get up and go...he's actually working on a deal for a '19 300 now...he's not fussed about sliding yet. (He hasn't ridden in my car yet either) lol

    What is a non-OEM Pirellis.....Are you saying if I went to Tire Rack and ordered a Pirelli tire it would or not be a non-OEM or OEM tire?
