    Ok, I've secured a set of "Hyper" black SRT rims for my Hellcat...as much as I love the silver, I fell in love with the hyper black the minute I saw them. So I've worked a deal to swap a set of factory black ones I purchased with another owner in about a week. I also know a local powder coater that can can the color of my silver rims to any color someone wants if they are interested in them...$500 to change the color in addition to any price I set to sell them for.

    Anyways, now is the time to pick a set of tires to mount on on the new rims.

    I would prefer something all season to avoid those traction surprises and of course a wider rear tire would be great. I do not want to lower the profile or stance. If I need to remain the same size at all four corners, no biggie, but I'm sure there's a good setup someone can recommend with a beefer rear tire.

    I added 295/35/20 Michelin super sports in the rear and matching 275/35/20 in front, it is a very summer racing style tire that has great grip on dry pavement, they are made of a rubber compound that doesn't heat up quickly vs the Pirellis which will get gooey much faster in hard driving scenarios

    Take a look at the Vredestein Vorti. I just got a set for my 06 Charger.

    I love the look...! Haven't had the opportunity to drive the car...SNOW!!!! They also have a Vorti R that has a softer compound but unfortunately didn't have the size I wanted for the rears.
