Hello... Just bought a 2015 Challenger Hellcat and had it shipped from Anaconda, Montana to my home to Fort Myers, FL. Only 2,900 miles when I took delivery in April. So far I have changed the oil and filter, diff fluid, brake pads (Z26 PowerStop pads), added a JLT CAI, installed new rear Factory Reproduction 20x10.5" wheels, rear 305/35R20 P Zero summer tires and MOPAR pebble guards. I'm going to enjoy it for a while before phase II mods. Always a MOPAR owner. In the recent past I built a 72 Duster, 440, plum crazy, 727, 3.73 Sure Grip. Prior to that a 67 Coronet with a built 400. My first new car was a 1971 Road Runner, B5 blue... just like my HC. Well, that's me. Looking forward to chatting on here...

Is that picture with the 305's in the rear? I don't think I've seen any with the 10.5 inch wheel as most seem to have the 11. Looks like it sits in under the fender better if that is the case. Would love to see some more pictures of them. Which wheels specifically did you get (as in mfg or website)? I was looking at the ones that discount tire offers.

Garage Queen! Nice find and great color, I have always been a fan of B5 Blue. Hope you can get her out and let the kitty screech her legs! My 2021 has just as many miles.

Yes... the photo above is with 305's on the car. P Zero summer tires.
Below are some additional pictures. The photo with the 2 tires side by side is the original equipment 275 next to the 305.

Catch cans are worthless Mods, name one auto manufacture in the "world" that either installs them OEM or offers them as an option, the answer is zero. But "we" know better than their millions of R&D and engineers.

BMW has used the system before. Oil was collected and returned to the sump through a funnel device back into the oil sump. So not 100% identical but the same thought process/purpose. There are actually some others out there too if you want to research it.

MFG's would never use a catch can like what you are thinking of because it would create WAY to much risk for the average Joe to not empty it out and basically render the complete evap system useless. Thus the BMW design to catch the oil vapors in a chamber that will drain back to the engine oil supply. There's plenty of debate around the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of these systems (depending on which way you look at them) so no need to rehash that here. You said to name one, so I felt I must :)

Congratulations on the Hellcat !!! Make sure you get a catch can. Brought mine to the dealership and installed it before I had to hit the 5hr drive home 馃槈
