    thanks so much for all of you that post to this forum, the information is fantastic and helped immensely. I have just purchased and will be installing this week the new dish type wheel that Triumph is making. First Hellcat to put them on. :) 9.5" in the front and 10.5" in the back with Michelin 285r35 20 Pilot Super Sports on the front and 315r35 20 in the back. Ferrari K1 and K2 tires. Bizmarck says the combo will work great, he altered the offsets to comply. I will weigh them and install and post next week sometime. IMG950055.jpg

    I have had those 315's. Ferarri 106Y.. Here is what I thought of them....



    Suckers have a few days remaining. Mine were Pirelli, but careful with that size, our car don't do well with them. They will rub the inside of the car on strong corners (20 mm backset), they may hop bad, when/if they spin at high speed the car can rock on them, I don't know your RWD experience, but caution is recommended, slow corners will feel like it is a skateboard, you will not hear them squeal. I would strongly recommend a 305 size instead. Yes, I have the same size wheels from Biz. But, your car will look great with the new wheels.

    I ordered a set from Triumph last week, same set up, 9.5" fronts, 10.5" rears.

    I also plan on going with 315/35/20's in the rear - however, Bismarck told me that I should go with the Nitto NT05's as they are almost 1/4" narrower (sectional width, not tread width) than any of the other 315/35/20's on the market.

    I did check the tire specs and indeed the sectional width for the Nitto's is listed at 12.4" vs 12.6" for the rest - Michelin, Continental, Pirelli.

    I know that's not a lot of difference but it could be the difference between rubbing and not rubbing.

    I will be running this combination as well but waiting for the Nitto 555 G2 to be released in January. I had the NT05's on my SRT-8 Charger and HATED them. The 555 was a great tire and is in use on a few of my other vehicles as well as some of my clients vehicles. I have seen the new 555 G2 at SEMA and they are going to be available in a 275/40/20 for the front and 315/35/20 for the rear.

    Doesn't look like the 555 G2 will be available in a 305 or a 315 - at least not when the tire is launched :(

    Biz is hooking me up with three piece 20x11 rear and 20x10 fronts...like the NITTO, but will run MTs, front/rear. Pictures will follow once completed.

    Good deal Dawg. I get to sit all winter while you guys figure out what I should buy. Are you going to get the Street Comps?

    That's the plan right now...apparently the newer version Drag Radials by MT have a modified tread pattern that doesn't make them as squirrelly as the older version. Probably protrude a little on the back, but I'm OK with that...Biz is working a little magic to help mitigate.
