    Ive got 700 miles on my challenger Hellcat. I noticed that the rear tires aren't wearing the same. The driver side rear tire doesn't wear to the outside like the passenger rear tire does. Any help? Difference is about and inch

    It sounds like the rear camber is off. I don't know if it adjustable on the Challenger

    Top photo is passenger rear, bottom photo is driver rear. Driver rear tire the wear doesn't extend as far as passenger rear tire. Any suggestions.

    Maybe you're just taking more hard left turns lol. I'd be curious how the inside is wearing on each side as well

    Tire pressures can cause this as well.

    I don't know much about what is or is not normal tire wear on a new car with 700 miles but I only have 200 miles and they look like they are doing the same as yours. I have no pulling or abnormal vibrations so I'm just going let it go as normal and see what they look like in about 5000 milles or so before I get concerned.

    I've got vibrations above 80 and rotating and balancing didn't fix it. I read in one thread that these tires develop flat spots really easily which means these tires show wear easily. Think about your trips when you drive, Are they mainly left turns? What about tire pressure is it within 1-2psi of each other? Did you choose secret open diff option and have been doing 1 wheel burnouts?

    No hard driving. I don't drive it in track mode. Whatever is default is what I go with. No vibrations.

    Somethings not right. I was just looking at last summers NT05's and will be needing new ones by half through this summer, but, they are exactly the same wear pattern almost bald steam rollers.

    I've got plenty of tread for now, I just don't know if the rear camber can be adjusted? If not how do you fix rear camber problems, by adjusting the front?
    Can someone post the alignment specs for the 2015 Challenger Hellcat. Where do you think is the best place to get the car 4 wheel aligned, dealer? If so, are these cars covered for alignment under warranty with only 700 miles?

    Right rear tire always wears a little faster than left as this is the first wheel to spin. Has to do with engine torquing and rear gear setup. Even with a posi, pass side spins more.

    No, that is not right; have your alignment checked that one side is dragging itself around.

    I agree. Both lines on my rear tires wore off exactly the same. I'd get it checked.
