    Hey everyone,

    I finally have my 2016 Challenger Hellcat being shipped to me tomorrow. Black on Black with Sepia interior. Slightly used with 900 miles but fully loaded although it's rear tires are pretty much gone, someone had a good smoke out I'm guessing :)

    Front two are like new and stock so I'm going to order 2x new rear all season tires before it gets here. Is it recommended to stick with the OEM P Zero's? Looks ike the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 and BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S are top 2 rated on tire rack and have amazing looking numbers for all weather. The BFG gForce are pretty cheap too. Am I ok to go with those and still keeping the P zero's up front until they wear out?

    Is there a wider all season tire that's recommended as well?

    thanks!!

    The pzero tires is what th car is designed for. I would buy four new ones and save the front two if you intend to drag it. Never been a fan of the continental tires since the Chrysler 300 wear issue debacle

    If the fronts are PZeros, those are not all seasons FYI. They are basically worthless when the temps dip below 50. Dangerous and just won't work if any freezing precp is on the road. So if you want all seasons, easy buy four.

    So the all seasons they come with are worthless is what you're saying when it actually comes to driving in all seasons? Just so I'm clear you're talking about the P Zero Nero All season's right...?

    I live in Iowa so I definitely plan on driving it when it's cold out and some precip, I wont try to plow through a few inches if I didnt have blizzaks. I've driven M3's through winter before on blizzaks and with a set of common sense it's not a problem at all.

    If i really want to drive in everything except blizzard conditions what is the recommendation then?

    Oh, and I see you're from MN, Dgatzby, so I will highly value your input :D you know this terrain as well as anyone.

    I certainly dont expect them to NOT spin, especially with any precip, but Dgatzby made them sound like they are like a damn summer tire when it's cold.. and that is NOT a good thing at all. Been there done that-- 5-6 years ago I tried to see how far I could go on summer tires in a genesis coupe and I didnt even make it out of my apartment complex, turned around and ordered winter tires lol

    I thought he was talking about PZero's without the "Nero", sorry for the confusion. Totally forgot about the Nero's.

    If I was going to get an all season, I would look at the Nitto Motivo. I put them on an SRT8 and they worked well in the winter and are reasonably good in the nice weather also.
