    i am hoping to use 305/35R20
    Anyone experienced with wider tires to make it look even meaner?? i just bought the purple challenger cat couple of months ago.
    My 2015 Charger HellCat is one year old now with 8000 miles and tires are gone!! i will swap the new 2016 purple challenger hellcat tires and mount those on the 2015 Charger hellcat and put some wider ones in the new challenger..

    please provide your experiences with wider tires and advices along with internet Link to tires and possible youtube videos.

    But their speed rating is not on par.. Michelin ps2 305/35/20 104y seems closest contender

    Not worried about $ at all, need great 305's with right rating.. Unable to find

    While I have them on, just keep it under around 150.

    if your car is street only the 305 nittos are great....if you plan to track it you may find the MT's are a better tire...i have the nitto's and struggle with traction on the track, while others with MT's are able to just floor it

    for the street im very happy with my nitto's and would buy them again....if i decide to go to the track more i will get MT's next time....Nitto's have a longer tread life

    Even MT's 305's are 104Y.. But I'm seeing nice reviews about MT's however

    easiest way to get a 10.8===get MT's

    ive gotten it down to 11.2 with Nitto's....got the burnout down well.....if you do multiple passes i find the traction gets worse...im told the nitto's gel, which is exactly what i believe happens....each pass gets worse

    i put mine at 18lbs...going to try 24lbs next time....some say 18 is too low

    some can get 10.8 w/ nitto's, but each track is different (so im told)

    I badly want wider tires too. Have heard a lot of people mention the 305/35 R20's too, but I thought I heard someone weigh in that you don't get any more meat on the ground if mounted on the stock rims. I too, am a bit concerned about the lower speed rating.

    I've heard that Nitto tires actually run narrower than most other brands. So basically a Nitto 305 will be as wide as a MT 295. And the Nitto 305 is already pushing the limit on stock wheels, so i doubt you'll be able to fit a MT 305 on stock wheels.

    Discussed to death in the tire section, go check it out. I doubt you'll be left with any questions...

    I'm looking to buy some rears tomorrow. Where did you purchase your Nittos? And do you have a upgraded DS? Mine will be for street use.
