My 2014 AWD Charger R/T, with stock size 235/55R19 tires and TranZformer shift kit, will pull .84G on a hard launch in AWD. When the time comes to replace tires, I’m going to try Michelin’s Pilot Super Sports, as highly recommended by Matt Farrah (TheSmokingTire).

joseph scott says:

I put Nitto Motivo tires on my Charger R/T and they’re horrible, I didn’t get much traction at all even on dry roads

Wayne Ollweiler says:

Hey love your videos! I have a question for you regarding tires…I have a 2015 Charger R/T RWD, I know you own a scat pack but I also know you had an RT at one point. I live in Florida which im sure you know is very hot and it rains a lot…any tires you would reccomend? Im not really racing my RT is my daily driver, however, performance is important to me too.

Trevor Black says:

What’s your opinion on the sound system in the scat pack?

Noah Woodard says:

Damn. I was gonna get these tires. I even met the guy who designed them lol

MrTrip3ace says:

I hate to say i told you so. But being a tire technician i have driven in alot of cars with all different types of new tires. The nitto 420s should have been your option. I personally am on my second set of them on my SRT8. There is a reason why the SRT8 guys love them especially the grand cherokee srt8 crowd. They hook up well. I do agree the motivos are a good all around tire but not for launching with high hp. Do some research on the 420s and see what i am saying.

Cohunnamatta says:

Maybe you’ll get a batter 0-60 time if you break stand first to get the tries sticky.

TheDman52 says:

Im sorry but 275 is way to small for these cars. and coming from the factory with 245’s? Come on dodge….that right there tells me its not meant to race and much as its meant to be a burnout king. Even on my RT with only 375hp at the crank, 245 is too small. But then again, your trying to move a 4500 lb car from a dead stop. Can’t fool physics.

Brittany Rose says:

you should of not went any wider than 265 on the stock wheels

Kenneth Martin says:

I have these tires on my 2015 5.7 rt and they suck, the front wears bad on the inside.when hot they stick good in curves. not good 0-60

TheFastestLap says:

Why didn’t you get the hellcat?

Ryan Bowers says:

R888 ONLY WAY TO GO

Boe Blow says:

have you ever tried warming them up you idiot

ps3psnps3 says:

Not wide enough

jonathan hudson says:

245s are pizza cutters. My 02 ws6 TransAm came stock with 275/35r17 on all four corners. I had 275 nt555r extreme drags on the rear and they were great for a daily tire. My car dynoed 400rwhp and 420ftlbs at the time. Those nittos were really good in the rain also. I was amazed at how much wet traction they had. obviously my MT ET streets in 275 are great for a dot tire. My 315 nt555 gen 2s are nothing to spin. They probably won’t last long at all even if I try to keep my foot out of it. I don’t know Wtf dodge is doing putting 245s on those cars unless they are trying to kill people. I would have gotten 315 nt555r extreme drags but they are the same with as my 275 MT ET streets. all of my tires have been on 17s. 9″ wide factory rims for the 275s. then I went with 11″ wide when I went to 315/40r17 on the rear and 9.5″ for the front that are still 275s (17″ zr1 replicas). Only thing I can say good about them is they ride good and my speedometer is dead nuts exact now. good luck getting a decent hook with a 275 anything unless you daily ET streets.

cuchin14 says:

Go with nt05

PowerheadTV says:

The Nitto 55 g2’s are not a sticky compound. while they do have are great tire design for performance use there is much stickier tires than the g2’s, like the stock tires design. lol maybe the stock Goodyear tires in the 275/40/20 size will be a little better.

Johnj9493 says:

I have no clue how the “500hp” Camaro hooked with motivo’s because I have them on my 5.7L charger at 275/40/20 and they suck!! I can never put power to the ground.

Hasan Luqman Qazi says:

They’re not drag radials, test them on a road course.

TheOsanity says:

Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Simple choice. You pay the price for a reason. Tires are literally the only thing that touch your vehicle to the ground. 275’s should be plenty for your scat pack, just need a stickier compound. Cant cheap out on tires.

jon rasho says:

4.6 seconds?? Riley , man the fk up and Learn how to launch your car.. For real. you can get 4.2, 4.1 seconds no problem with a good launch. I have a 2015 charger R/T 5.7L and I do 4.7 seconds 0-60 ALL DAY with only 255/45R20 Goodyear All season Sport in the back. Keep trying tho I’m sure you’ll get into the low 4 seconds range with ease soon

Tripp mundo says:

on my 15 gt stang I have in the rear nitto 285/30/20 i must admit I have had success with them , I have a hard time burning out on take off due to grip , I’m running stock so the power maybe a perfect match for the tires.

Tyler Jeffries says:

Hey Riley +RP Productions why haven’t you looked at Michelin Pilot Super Sport …. i know there pricey that’s what I’m getting for my 750Li give or take same power as your Charger… Heard they are amazing

Srt Cat says:

Toyo R888 man! My 392 Challenger hooks up super good now. They only cost $450 each, A little road noise but it is totally worth it.

JohnnyGT says:

Riley- do you feel like they spin less? to be honest, your really not going be able to test the traction with out going to the track & testing your 60ft. even then, that’s not %100 because there are other variables such as track conditions, prep, etc. I just got 275 pirelli p zero summer tires. I’ll be doing a review on them at some point.

James Fitzsimmons says:

Just out of curiosity why didn’t you get the nt555r instead of the street nt555

Danny Arroyo says:

shouldve tried bf Goodrich sport comp 2

him2gud07 says:

3 weeks damn. I’ll send you some from Va. We get rain every week. Rain is on it’s way.
