Can I get you guys thoughts on these tires? I need to replace my fronts and although I don’t require an All Season tire as my ‘15 HC Challenger is a warm weather toy for me, I can get the pair for 150 or so, barely used, no patches or plugs. Thanks guys.

I have run the summer only version (DW) on several other cars in the past & put a set on the wife's Infiniti Q50 Redsport last fall.
They have made a noticeable improvement on every car I've used them on & will be putting them on the Cat when the time comes (which will be soon).

From what I've read, the DWS version is almost as good. TireRack has tests & reviews for both.

Checking those reviews now Mike. Thanks. I figure for the price I can’t get hurt. Guy claims 10 miles on them. Too wide for his car. I’ll check the sidewalls for cuts but pics look good. Can still see the tire paint between the treads.

Why is he selling them? Maybe they aren’t working good for him?

Allegedly too wide. They have a DOT date of 0723, so they’re only a year old.

Had them on my 2009 SRT. It's been a while, but I had zero complaints.

For that price, I'd say it's a no brainer...

Too wide for his car maybe, but are you okay with that they're too tall for yours? Should be 275/40R20s.

I’m still on the fence about that 1/2 in. difference on the sidewall Jimmy. I know Michelin & Continental both make the exact oem size, I just can’t seem to find them on the cheap. I can get through the summer on my current Pirelli’s, so I’ve got time. We’ll see.

I think Conti still has a $110 rebate going on, but that's likely for a set of four.

I've used that offer twice within a month.

Oops. Looks like your tires wore out nine days too late.

Actually I curbed the p/s. Cut the tire, which was already worn, and scraped up the rim on the outer lip. Rims all squared away, fixed that last week, now I’d like to r&r the rubber. Just found the Continental ECS Summer tires at Walmart for 630 a pair, or so, in oem size. I may just go that way as I don’t need all season. Michelin PS4 crazy money, Costco has them for 806/pair.

That's one reason I use the cheap Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s on the 'Cat.

It doesn't get used in rain or snow anyway, and I don't need the factory speed rating since I have no plans to run over 160 mph for sustained periods, and with the car at max GVWR.

Dodge dealers run tire promos twice yearly. Buy 3, get one free. And you keep any rebates and claim them.
