    Here is a description on the Pirelli Summers. They can crack if the are out in freezing temperatures and aren't covered by the warranty if the do.

    "The P Zero System is Pirelli's Max Performance Summer tire system offering the possibility of selecting from two different tire designs tuned to be used separately or in unison depending on the type of car, driving conditions and driving style. Designed to heighten performance in the dry and especially in the wet, P Zero System tires were originally developed for some of the world's fastest cars, such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche. Pirelli’s warranty does not cover tires that develop compound cracking due to use in ambient temperatures below 45° Fahrenheit (7° Celsius), so the P Zero System tires, like all summer tires, is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice."

    I live in Florida! It might get below 45 degrees once or twice a year! Those tires are perfect for where I live!

    I am taking the Chrome Vapor wheels off my '14 SRT392 and putting them on my Hellcat. I have Michelin's best all season tires on there now and have 4 Michelin Super Sports for when Spring arrives. I swear by TireRack.

    Yes...they are 20inch wheels. 275/35 tires in the front......285/35 in the back. Total dig those wheels...and it will make my Hellcat unique, along with the SUPERCHARGED badges I bought from Dealer Connect.

    The Chrome Vapors, to anyone who does not know, are the SRT wheels on 2013-14 Chargers and Challengers. They are 9inches wide. You can see them in my profile pic. I just think they are one the best looking wheels out there.
