I'm posting this because there wasn't a ton of info about these tires when I searched.

I have a 2016 Challenger Scat Pack 6 speed. I've had Atturo's on the car for about 500 miles or so. They are a GREAT TIRE. Great!

No, I don't have a Hellcat. Yes, I could buy one cash if I wanted to. No, i don't put 87 octane in my car. I know how tires affect a car. I know how to find the apex on every corner. I know how to heal and toe downshift. I've had 315 drag radials on 11 inch rims. I've had so many brands of tires on BMW's that i can't count. (I mention BMW because they seem to exploit bad tires). I'm not bragging, I'm saying I'm not a buffoon that doesn't have a clue about tires.

I was super apprehensive to put a non-name brand tire on my car. I've had Pirelli's before. I think they are junk. I've been consistently let down by Goodyear tires over the years. I just didn't want to spend 300 bucks a tire on Michelin Super Sports. At $125 bucks a tire, I figured I didn't have much to lose.

They handle extremely well. They give road information very well. They provide very decent traction. The tire is soft, and does flat spot after not being driven for a few days. It corrects itself after a few miles. If you're thinking about buying them, I highly recommend them. They are a good tire. Not just good for the money. There are many, many examples of brands associated with the automotive industry going from non-existent to top tier. I think this brand could be next. Just my .02 cents.

So, you could buy a Hellcat cash if you wanted too.....okay. I honestly stopped reading after that., but I decided to read anyway. Totally unnecessary info. Dont think anyone would care about that and it dont make you knowledgeable about cars.....you liked the tire? Thats good to know. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

Lol! Besties Already! I'm glad you enjoy them and they work for you. "Decent Traction" is what got me. Lots of great options for under 300 pending size. Spinning ain't winning. As long as you're happy all that matters.

That and I remember someone on here posting pics of their tires falling apart from the inside, like chunks of tire.

So.... this guy has all that money, but yet buys those cheapo tires? Something here seems off? LOL! Perhaps is not a review but a way to look for validation? I better shut up before the guy shows his bank account and shames us all.....:LOL:

As do I lol. Just have to be positive. That was a HC though(Not sure it matters). Shoes on these cars are probably most important mod period.

The Atturo with the tire degradation on this forum was a run flat model, I believe. I would never put those on a HC. I've run Atturo 850's on my wife's SP for the last 2.5 years. On my HC, I will put some 850's on the front once the factories wear thin. I keep M/T's on the rear, cuz spinnin' sho ain't winnin'.

I tried these Atturo AZ850 on my Charger Hellcat as well. I was not overly impressed and sold them off. They handled ok, definitely were not awful, but did not hook as well as I'd hoped. I dont know how well they do long-term as I didnt keep them for more than 6 months. I bought Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 after that and found them to be a better tire in every way of course at a much higher price-point.

Those are run flats with a speed rating of 186. I believe you have had multiple runs at or above that. Were you lucky? Yes. I rarely top 100 outside of the track and haven't had my HC above 150. There's no need for me to check the cars top speed. I've had the non run flats on my wife's SP Charger for 21k miles. No issues. I may even go with Achilles Desert Hawk UHP's for my HC fronts. A few bucks cheaper and still a highly rated all season.

These where on the front. What I did notice when I replaced them with Nitto NT555G2 is I lost 3-4 mph on the top end of my 1/4 times, makes me actually want to try them again. I guess I do feel lucky 😂

186 is max speed so thats no surprise to me that they started to come apart. Im looking into purchasing a pair just to enjoy. Not looking for traction, or speed. just something to leave black marks at my dads house when i visit lol. i like the idea of 250 for 2 rather than 600.

last time i was at a HPDE they also had a drift event going on at the same time. I was very tempted to ask if i could try a few laps but knowing the cost of tires i had on the car for the track i decided against it. hopefully i can try a drift event this year!

I could use a little extra cash. How much are u thinking for pay rate for review of your intended post before you hit the send button. I will be better at the job then Chappy. I do understand why you put the extra info in your post. You were trying to stop the rants saying if you

can't afford tires you should not own a Hellcat. Just for a heads up. You can post about some high price tires and the same guys with still criticize and and ask why you waste money on a name brand. No post is trigger proof. Somebody will perk up and slip into keyboard combat mode. I think i will post a pic and see if i land one.

Dave, you are 100% right, the extra info was a preemptive strike. I had seen some of the other comments about cheap tires. Side note, I don't have a hellcat for self-imposed restraint. At highway speeds, hellcats begin to fly. Getting caught going that fast would be career ending. And what's your fee for the post approvals? Can I get you on retainer?
