    I did. I put the Nitto NT555R drag radials out back (305/35R/20) and the Nitto NT555 up front (275/35R/20). They look great together. I'll post a picture when I can.

    I'll get a picture posted tomorrow when I get back home. The 305s mounted up fine and just cleared the inner fender walls without rubbing. Anything larger will rub.

    I wouldn't go bigger than 305 I am very interested in doing this for the grip and stance it provides so take lots of pictures!!

    Here are some pictures of the Nitto tires front & rear. I hoopoe these pictures help you decide.

    I also just got the tint finished. I used LLumar Film Ceramic CTX Medium all around and AIR80 on the windshield. The CTX Medium has a 99% UV block and lets through 32% of the visible light. More importantly, it has a 48% heat deflection which is crucial for the Las Vegas summer. The AIR80 is clear so there are no issues with Johnny Law by having a film on the windshield. The AIR80 also blocks 99% of the UV and lets through 78% of the light with a 43% heat deflection. I have used this window film combo before and it works great. No more getting into an overheated car in the summer!

    The ride is a little bumpier out back because of the tire width but if I'm in Race or Sport mode, what does it matter anyway.

    I have added Michelin A/S Plus 3 275/35 to the front and 285/35 to the back on stock rims. I have Michelin Super Sports for the summer.

    Hey can you pm me where you got the tint done. it looks awesome. I live in reno and ordered my hellcat charger through a phoenix dealership. I plan to stay the night in vegas on my way home and maybe i can go get my windows done where you did, it looks great!! how do you like it so far, not too dark? Also how was the pricing for the tinting there?

    Thanks!
