    Default What tires are you using for your Challengers

    I was just wanting to find out from everyone what tires you have currently on your challengers. Are the stock OEMs good enough to stick with or are you planning to (or already have) replace them with something else?

    mine are ok, they are crap but ok, they are the oem stock Continentals, but they are hard to find and expensive to replace, for the cost of 2 alone I can outfit all 4 with a better named brand tire.

    I'm just going to burn mine off and then go with a Falken
    disappointed.... bought a lemon and all Chrysler did was hand me the strainer to make lemon aid.

    Ah Continentals! I'm yet to find a set of Continentals that I haven't hated with a passion. Which version of the Challenger do you have which equips them with Continentals?

    Firestone M & S on the stock rims for winter, 20" Michelins on chrome rims for the summer.

    Alright so you have winter tires and summer tires? I thought about doing the same for my car but came to the conclusion that we didn't get bad enough snow to justify it.

    We've been in Calgary for 17 years and for 12 of those you could have gotten away without the snows. The last 2 have been brutal though.
    Also, by running the winters I am extending the life of the summers so it balances out the expense.

    just bought new wheels and tires as mine is the base SE with 17"
    bought MB KL-77 20"x9" wheels and went with 255/45-20
    yokohama prada spec x tires.

    unfortunately there was too much salt still on the road after i put them
    on last week to properly put them through their paces and with snow forecast
    again for this friday in to saturday that problem will continue.

    i was told on another site that i would be extremely happy with the handling
    of the car once they were installed.

    At 25,000 miles its time for some new rears. Does anyone have a suggestion for some semi sticky 20" rears. I need traction and I live in the South so snow is not a concern. Nittto. Kumos, Perelli P 0s?

    I still have the stock Goodyear Eagle RSAs on my Challenger. Before I buy a new set, I would research the best tire on the tire rack web site.

    Both V8Lite and I have the SXT (SE - with a canadian upgrade package) that came equiped with the 18's.

    Hey Mark, been awhile, how's the beast?
