    Silly question, but just curious:

    In your opinion is there any difference in the look of the Standard Pirelli Nero compared to the optional summer tire when mounted on the car?

    From what I can see, the summer tire is .40" wider and .10 shorter in diameter, plus the graphics look a bit different.

    Thank you!

    both suck and need replacement if you want any straight line performance out of the car

    The summer tires do look a little beefier

    beefier in a still sucky kind of way---275's dont look right on the car....305's do a better job, but even they look small......sad thing is the 392 RT's got 255's which look like a joke with that cool shaker hood....

    if your deciding on whether to order summer or all season i would recommend whichever is cheaper....keep the fronts, replace the backs asap.....dont stick with the stock tires...your car will never have its full potential....i kept the stock f1's on my 13 gt500 for 4,500 miles.....finally i switched and its like night/day with the Nitto's.....i actually have traction under 80 degrees and i dont slide out of control in 60 degree weather.

    Ordered my HC with the all seasons. I am OK with the way they look and just use the car as a daily cruiser.......I haven't done any performance or track activity....not even a burnout...yet:p. I did change out the chrome lug nuts and replaced with the locking black ones though.
