Wheel and Tire Noob Question

Okay go ahead and get the smart ass comments on record. I’m a big boy and I can handle it. 🤣🤣🤣
I am new here. I own a 2022 TRX currently. After lots of thought and careful consideration I placed an order for a 2022 Super Stock today. The reason I went with the Super Stock is likely not what you think. I will do very little actually track racing. I’m getting the car to have a fun weekend cruiser and maybe go to a few Mopar events… test and tunes ect… but overall the car will be a street car.

Here is the issue. In ordering the new 2022 Redeye Wide Body I was told by the dealer that you can no longer get the 3:09 rear gearing or the Laguna leather package. The only way to get these options is to order a Jailbreak at full price and no guarantee that I will actually get it due to the low allocation.

My only option was to get the 2022 Super Stock or do without the gearing package and add myself and settle for the Alcantra interior. Not my choice. Hence ordering the Super Stock.

My question is this. Have any of you guys run the factory Red Eye wheels and tires on the car for daily driving and kept the drag radials specifically for track days? If you have how do like this option. I plan to see if this will work in my case and was simply wondering if anyone else has done the same and can share experience.

That's the answer I was looking for. I thought the scenario would work. I don't plan to do any public street racing with the car. So considering that I figured a small loss of traction would be fine when just enjoying driving normally and not at the drag strip. I get that this car is primarily for drag racing however with the limited options on gearing and upholstery for the 2022 model year the Super Stock is the only choice for me. Jailbreak models are very limited production and most dealers are not currently offering any deals on them. There also is no assurance being a late order that I will even get one. So I think I will be very happy with the Super Stock.
TBH I'd rather have a SS anyway, even for street use. It just has more Demon DNA than a pretty JB. There will be fewer built by far and will be sought after years from now. You're being forced into a better choice imo.
