    Hey guys. Just picked up our 16 challenger, white with black hood on Friday. I'm a huge car guy and spent the last 12 months trying to con myself into keeping my 12 CTSV coupe. It was a great car, but being 6.3 that car was just a tad small and just a tad too slow (lol). So far, the HC is by far the best car I've ever owned. To run that way it does, with as heavy as it is, just blows my mind.

    We picked it up on Friday. I had the Windows tinted today, had my hood vents painted white to offset the black hood, as well as had all the markers tinted as well. Have a few more things I'd like to do, first thing is changing out the factory AS tires. Only car I could find in the color combo I wanted, did not have the max summer tires. I had a set of the new Nitto 555 G2 on my caddie, tires seemed to work great. I was thinking about a set of those for day to day. I already ordered a set of OEM replica wheels for the back with a set of MT ET streets for the track use. Hads anyone on here ran a different tire on all 4 corners other than the stocks?

    Thx guys.

    Thx guys. Appreciate the warm welcome.

    I'm located near Livonia. We usually head out to Woodard on the weekends. Tons of HC's out there. Feel free to come out.

    I have a mortgage company on WW just north of 14 mile. Feel free to stop and say hi if you see my car out there.

    Baddkty, welcome! Question.....what's the reason for OEM reps for the rears? Is it cause they come in 20x10's? Also please confirm the color matches the OEM wheels. I was thinking about doing the same, but afraid they would not match. Thanks!

    BTW, great looking Cat!
