    Okay, I got a set mounted and street tested. No hard launches yet but they do ride and drive just fine with no issues after I "adjusted" the driver's side plastic inner fenderwell. I will post some pics in several postings.

    photo (9).JPG Side view. It could use a higher profile I suppose. There seems to be plenty of room and it would fill the wheel well. As I have said the drivers side did rub initially but a heat gun will soften the plastic inner fenderwell sufficiently to reshape the plastic away from the tire.

    Where and what are the wheels and how much? What is the wheelsize and offset? And finally not universal? Thanks!

    I like the width. In that side view pic, can you make a mark on it to show about where it rubbed at and which direction is forward? Think the inner fenderwell could be shaped/massaged enough to get an extra 1/4" inside? That would mean we could run a 315.

    I'm with you on the higher profile, would fill the well better and give you more sidewall for launch 'bite'. Would a taller tire rub worse?

    Those tires work best for racing been telling everyone on this forum about them drop them 17-18 and light burn out nothing major and will bite every good

    The inner fenderwell is thin plastic and is easily reformed with a heat gun and pressure. I think a 1/4" is no problem. I don't think the issue is height so yes I believe a taller tire will fit.

    That's awesome! Thanks for sharing lots of pics. I can't wait to hear how they hook up for you. Did you have some testing with the stock all season tires before you put these on so you can really compare? They look really good!:D

    No before strip times, just seat of the pants smokey burnouts with the summer PZeros! Tons of fun but probably not to good for stayin' in front if you know what I mean. Y'all know this, punch it at anything under 40 with the street tires and instant slippage! My wife is eager but not too experienced with high horsepower cars and I had the additional concern she might end up sideways with too much throttle around a corner. Black key for her! And Tammie no disrespect intended for our feminine Hellcat devotees, just acknowledging her particular enthusiasm and skill set imbalance. Maybe I can get a test on concrete today before the Cowboy game. Flame away Detroit and Green Bay fans.
