    Looking for a picture of a Hellcat Challenger with that size tire on the back on stock wheels.

    I know it will help fill the well nicely diameter wise; but concerned they'll stick out too noticeably from the fender, but maybe not??

    Thank you !

    I ran this size for a bit earlier this year. From my experience that little extra sticking out flung extra road debris up the size of the car even with the mopar rock guards. My next tire will be a 275/45R20 110Y Michelin pilot sport PS2

    Thanks Terry, I am considering staying with the 275 and am currently trying to decide between the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 and the Nitto NT555 G2. Did you look at the Nitto G2?

    I'm currently running the G2 in 275/40 but like you I want to fill that wheel well more. The G2 does not come in a 275/45 and is also a W speed rating. Not that I plan on hitting 168+ anytime soon anyway

    Coming from the all seasons the grip is 500% better. Challengernutt bought the 295s off me. Not sure if he has them mounted yet and unfortunately I don't have any pix since they were only on for a short time

    Any idea of the actual width of the PS2 275/40? One of the things I liked about the Nitto G2 compared to the stock Pirelli was it is 10.94" wide.

    Stupid question maybe, but are the 275/45R20 Michelins you're referring to just for the 2 rears, or for all four? If they're only for the rears, what would you run/are you running on the fronts?

    Thanks.

    I'm currently running 275/40 G2 on front. What ever u decide to go with I would stick with stock size up front. I'm not sure on actual width of that tire. May be on their website

    Thanks ... I was looking for options on changing out just the rears while keeping the factory Pirelli summers up front.

    Also, I'm assuming that with all your tires they're still mounted on the OEM wheels (rims)?

    Here is some pics you are looking for hope this helps. Also they clear everything when mounted on the front. I'm switching to michelin 295's all the way around. So I'm going to be getting rid of the nittos I bought from Terry.
