    Just came from NAIAS and saw charger with the summer tires. Since I live in MI I got the allseaso tires. I was just wondering if the overall side profile looks just as aggressive as the 3 season?

    i had the all season on my IE and they were awesome over the f1's....there was never a traction issue ever....ill bet i had better traction overall...even in the summer

    with 237 more hp i wonder how much the summer tires helps.....i know judging from my f1's on my gt500 they are worthless unless its 90 degrees out (im from WI)

    my HC has the summer tires

    in 80-90 degree weather the summer tires should out perform the all seasons

    my GT590 f1's will barely spin in 90 degree weather...no slide into 2nd gear.....in 70 degrees and below its scary to attempt an all out run....i often drive down the middle of the road to i have 50% more road to recover from when it goes sideways...and thats with the TC on

    I find it funny how dealerships that still have Hellcats unsold in the North ordered them with the 3-season tires.
