    Tires

    I know this is going to open a GIANT can of worms but I'd like some new opinions. I've read much from the past, any new thoughts? What are gonna be the best gripping street tires to replace my not that great stock Pirelli 275-40-20? Can you squeeze a slightly wider tire on without rub?

    I just replaced my mt et street ss tires with the toyo r888r and they are great. Even do great in the wet.

    For where you live, you can get away with Summer tires 11 out of 12 months a year, but the rain frequency would keep me off drag radials there if you daily driver the car.

    Tire choice depends on a few other factors...how you drive and how deep your pockets are.

    The Firestone Indy 500's are a great tire for the price. I haven't tried the Toyos Ronan suggested, but I trust him on tire choice.

    Someone is inevitably going to say Michelins, but you have to have deep pockets for them, especially when you may very well be buying a set of tires every year lol.

    Iirc, you have the Dynamics package so if you want the ability to rotate, stay with the 275's. If you don't care about rotating, you can go with 305/35 with your wheels and be fine.

    You gonna make it back to the cones course in Danville at the end of July?

    Just ordered Toyo Proxes T1 Sports for the wife's 16 Scat Charger. She's put two sets of Continental DSW06 (or is it DWS?? I never remember) and they get half worn and although decent on hot dry pavement, wet roads get dicey. I predict she will like these tires much better than the Conti's

    I ran my T1's right down to nothing and they still stuck to the road and did well on wet roads (not pouring out kinda wet).

    Like mentioned above, depends on driving style, life expectancy of the tires and what you want to spend.

    I daily drive mine and put down 572hp and 508tq. The r888r work great. I can't tell you about tire life though. I only have about 600 miles on them.

    Do not order Continental ExtremeContact DWS, they do not compare to the OEM Pirelli's in wet or dry grip. This is my experience with 275/40/20 & 315/35/20. I have not tried the summer variant of the Conti's. My next pair will likely be the Toyo's.

    Hey, I ended up getting those toyo’s from overseas. They came in very quickly and look great. Will be mounting them as soon as a finish stripping the powdercoating off my welds.

    Tires

    I had the original Nitto NT-555 on my Marauder, even in warm weather they had terrible wet grip and downright scary below 40F. They cracked badly after only a few years Hopefully those issues were addressed in the G2 IMG_0713.JPG

    I got the Az-850 for my Hellcat wheels 275-40-20 all 4. The tires are probably a bit smaller than the Stock Pirelli certainly no bulge or wiggles the 9.5 wide wheels keep the tires tight. Great wet grip so far even in the cold spring. Noise level good, but that may change as they wearIMG_1273.JPG

    I put on some Firestone INDY 500’s two weeks ago, 275/40/20, and let me tell you that these tires hook pretty damn well. Only con so far is they’re bricks in the mornings haha. Let’s see how long they last me, will update y’all later.
