    I took delivery yesterday - so stoked!

    I'm in Western Canada - yes, we have snow but I did some research and for rear wheel drive cars, these were the top rated (albeit more pricey than i'd have liked) tires for it.

    Michelin Alpin Pilot PA4 N Spec 285/35/20

    In March/April I'll add some new rubber of course.

    these are 7952 x 5304 if clicked.

    Apple carplay is great! Seriously just like using your phone. When plugged in it asks if you can trust this phone when locked. From there, messages coming in are read to you, you can reply or ignore, cals coming in you can answer or txt to respond. Music, from your phone or apple music, spotify, whatever app you have that is also carplay compatible.

    Maps is far better than the nav in the car - I wish it was Android's google maps.. but that's apple I guess. Google has a better map experience (right now anyway)

    The new wheels.. crazy cool. LOVE THEM!

    I am running in Valet mode so that's 300 hp, first gear is skipped.. I haven't spun with exception on being on ice and doing a donut I may or may not have done.

    Congrats from Quebec. What a nice color that is. And thanks for confirming my thoughts on valet mode when it gets crappy out even though I won't try it out in the snow.enjoy

    No way ... I like Granite Crystal a LOT. GC sparkles more than any other pearl coat I have seen, even in low light and when dirty. My husband's RAM is GC, and if he does trade it in for a TrackHawk, he has already said that he is getting Granite Crystal again. So, rock it out! :)

    I love the color I ordered it because I didn't want a flashy color but then I saw plum crazy and sublime in person and fell in love. Then go mango and now octane red came out and I look at my plain granite crystal and sometimes wish I ordered a more 70s color.

    Congrats! That is one beautiful Red HC. I'm of the mindset it's better than Redline...so deep and rich looking.

    Go gently, take care and enjoy the beast!
