    I for one want a little extra insurance when taking extended drives, does anybody know if there is anything like this available that will work? I guess what I am asking is the bolt pattern size and will it clear the brembos. I know most have roadside assistance, but I will feel better having this extra insurance. Not a fan of the goop.

    I don't suppose 392's get a donut. Goop don't help with a big hole/gash

    392s do not get a donut; we have the same car you have, except the motor.

    But our consolation prize for giving up that extra 200+ HP is that we get fog lights. :D

    You may be able to get a donut spare that will fit over the rear brembos, in which case if you ever got a flat on the front you could remove a good rear wheel and replace with the donut then replace the front flat with the rear wheel.

    If your own a hellcat, or srt,, you better have good road side coverage,, as our cars can only be picked up by a flat bed

    I don't know all the details about this, but I think you need an adapter ring (spacer) to get a donut spare tire to work. Check out this site: A-DAPT-IT USA Wheel Adapters and let us know what you find. Maybe you can give them a call. I don't have my Hellcat yet so I don't know all the details of what is needed.

    And if you can find a way to get a donut to fit, then you need a jack and a place to store it all. The HK subs are in the spare tire well under the trunk mat.

    Road side coverage is only a few dollars a month,, rather pay someone to take car of it, then have a make shift spare, and have to deal with a scissors Jack in your trunk, tearing things up

    I have it. Suppose I'm trekking across the Mohave and there is no cell range. Granted, pretty slim chance, but you never know. Maybe I'm too paranoid. True on the spare equipment. I was thinking this would be for major road trips, not everyday driving. I'd find a nice case or something for all the accoutrements.

    That sounds like a bad movie, going across the desert with no cell phone coverage,,, what if you blow a rad hose.....I'm thinking of the movie break down with kurt Russell...but good thing is, our cars have 911 on the mirror..and most cell phones will dial 911 even without coverage, plus chances are if you have a hellcat, your not rocking a flip phone.....LOL
