Ran Continental DWS06 on my 06 SRT Charger & never looked back. Now, they're on my HC Charger and the wife's RT Magnum.

I have the 345 30 20 corsas on the back. With a ton of stuff in my trunk to add weight i can get traction most of the time when punching it from 45. That is when the tires are nice and warm. They only have a 60 rating. They are mounted on 12 inch Stance SF07 rims.

Not good on the Atom either? One experienced guy (who tests tires) believes they got too hot on my tanker and that caused my little problem in June. They are known to get slippery if hot. Just what you don't want to happen, huh?

So... both the HC and the Atom are funny animals when it comes to this part of the tire discussion.

The Atom is weird because it is soooo light... that it is VERY difficult to get heat into the tires. Even tho the R888R is a 100 TW, R-compound tire, it pretty much takes me driving in drift-mode to get heat into them....

The Hellcat is the exact opposite. It’s so heavy that with super-soft tires, it’s easy to overheat them and get them ‘greasy’ if you’re not careful. Depending upon the nature of the course you’re on, you could easily overheat them 5 minutes in to a 18 minute session.

What I do like about the tires is they are fairly predictable when up to temp... and the grip is good.... What I dont like is their unpredictable nature when outside of that range. When cool, they cut loose with very little warning.

Chose Michelin because I have had very good luck on multiple vehicles, even though I like Goodyear and BFGoodrich as well.

295 Continental Sport Contact 6 in the rear and and 275 Continental Extreme Contact Sport in the front. Both on 20x10 wheels. Continentals run wider than stock Pirellis even on stock 20x9.5 wheels. Can’t remember the wheel offset off the top of my head. I’ll have to find it.
