Has anyone installed a wider tire on the Challenger Hellcat widebody, such as a 315/35R20 and if so were there any complications with suspension or rubbing? I'm having trouble finding the stock 305/35R20's but have located plenty of 315/35R20's. Thanks Jim

I run 315/35 20's on my WB Redeye. They fit perfect. Get the Michelin PS4's. Its the best alternative I have found to a drag radial. I have a few sets of rims and tires but the PS4's is really the best tire u can get for DD. Hooks up decent dry and works the very best in the rain.

I can mash my car from a roll with them and be ok. Not from a dig tho but ull need a DR if udont want to spin from a dig but its a trade off when it rains and they handle corners exceptionally well.

The 555R2 DR tire from Nitto is a great tire cause it will work decent in the rain and hook like velcro but they will wear out pretty quick so the rain groves pretty much disappear. The 555R2 is on back order tho but some seem to find them here and there......

No problems whatsoever running these on stock (or properly made aftermarket) 20x11 wheels. No rubbing or issues whatsoever. In fact, I think it is the best street tire size for this car. It makes the tire and wheel fitment look SO much better with a noticeably smaller gap between the tire and wheel well all the way around. The wheels and tires will look more flush with the wheel openings which improves the look of the car considerably. The wider size helps with both traction and handling. The ONLY downside is that the wider tires are a little more prone to following breaks/cracks in the road, a VERY minor inconvenience that the factory tires do anyway. Get yourself a good set of Michelins or Continentals and you wont be sorry. If you have extra wheels buy one set of all seasons in either brand and then buy a set of summer performance tires in either brand. Use the Summer tires in the spring thru early fall, then switch to the all seasons in the fall and winter. It makes the car feel like a whole new vehicle with MUCH, MUCH better traction in every situation over the garbage Pirellis that come on the car factory. Look at it this way, you have a very high performance car with all kinds of go-fast tech in it but the car is only as good as the tires that connect it to the road. NEVER cheap out on tires, ever. If you live by that rule you will always be happier with your car.
