    Sure Dr will come in and provide his opinion. He swears by the MT and so do many others seriously racing the car.

    I went with the Nitto. For the following reason, I got a great deal, the two to my door for $540. From my research they have long her tread life and are better for daily road driving, dealing with rain etc.

    But I don't have my car yet and haven't installed them or tried them. But that's why I went that way after a decent amount of reading.

    Chrysler is buying car back and rush building me a new one, I actually upgraded my options and went with the upgraded leather. Funny thing is, they are still repainting the whole car and dealer is pretty sure once it's done, I'll be able to drive it until my new one comes in. If that's true than kudos to Chrysler for doing the right thing. I will say however, car will be returned with bald rear tires, lol.

    exactly the same as me with my 392. Buying it back, I didn't just upgrade leather though. I'm upgraded to the cat too. Should be here in a week or so.

    Yeah I've had excellent nitto buyer and user experience in the past in my JDM cars and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for the hellcat

    Nitto is better for every day driving as in rain. And wear. Mickeys are the best for all out traction
