    Given the new HP and torque ratings, I wonder why the engineers overlooked one of the obvious detail....the width of the rear wheels and tires.

    Although the Hellcat in itself wouldn't necessarily be classified in a "Supercar" class with Ferrari, Lambo, Porche 911 GT3, etc. Given is pure muscle car and raw power, wouldn't you think the engineers would have designed the car with larger than 9.5" rear tires?

    Even the Boss 302 Laguna Seca ran 10.5 tires.

    Anyone know if you can fit a larger rear wheels/tires on the 2015 Hellcat?

    Sounds stupid to put an all season tire on a car with so much power. At least have sticky summer tires standard with the all seasons optional.
