    I love my Hellcat and sure their are a few who would never dream of driving theirs in the rain and snow. Just curious who in the forum will use her to the utmost mile? I personally have no problem driving her in the rain and snow. I am always a little more concerned after the snow and road conditions. There is just a lot of junk on the road and the potholes...etc. But a light snow I'll drive her. And I am truly amazed at her stability in the rains. I drove her today on a wet and rainy day. And was truly amazed at how well she handled. And I drove her hard. Smoked the BMW wannabes and WRX crowd as well. Could not believe how with the proper throttle and braking she stuck to the road, and not bragging but over the top on what was proper for a rainy day. So if u wish to chime in would be nice to hear other members position. And u only live once so u better enjoy ur KITTY otherwise someone else will:rolleyes:

    I purchased my Chargwr SRT last February 14th and was amazed as well how well she drove in the snow. It was snowing when I picked her up. And drove her all winter,

    No. Under 50*

    Nope. Tams and I are that weird percent that can barely afford this car but can... barely. We saved and saved. We're both accomplished drivers, but we cannot account for others.

    You may want to really think about driving your car in snow, ice or cold weather if you have the
    "summer" tires. Below about 40 degrees F can be catastrophic. Plus, cars normally last longer
    the less they are exposed to wet weather and the deicing chemicals that are sometimes put
    on snowy or ice covered roads.

    Enjoy your car and do what works best for you but if the weather is crappy, I'll drive one of my
    trucks.

    Whatever you do, BE SAFE AND ENJOY!

    Which, by the way, really, really sucks right now, because I've driven it ONCE, on the way home from the dealer.

    It's been wet and/or snowy ever since....

    It's not a pussy, It's a Hellcat.

    I'll drive it in any weather except in snow. I don't have winter tires but I will drive it in the winter on dry roads.

    Yah so right on the SUMMER TIRES I'd never put those on a car in the regions of the country where u truly have a change of season. Unless u truly park your car for 4-6 months. I purchased my wife in 2003 a brand new VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG not knowing the DUMMY GERMANS shipped it over to the US with SUMMER TIRES. MY WIFE Calls me (2004 winter) and says she's stuck in the 2 inch snow in my driveway with a 5 degree grade if that. Hard lesson for me 5 thousand dollars later new tires and wheels (all season) and back in 2004 they did not offer a all season tire for a 19 inch wheel. So I had to buy 18 inch wheel and tire package.
    And for the record I have many options to not driving my HELLCAT and for the most part won't but in rain not a big deal and snow only if it's a light one and out and about running around and get caught in one.
    And Hell or should say HELLCAT if you buy it you DRIVE IT:D

    I won't drive mine if it's raining or snowing. I live in Chicagoland where there are people that are really stupid. Last year I had my Durango damaged twice in the winter by stupid people. My Hellcat will not be the victim of similar fate.
