    Hello:

    I have a 2016 SRT 392, which came with Pirelli P Zero Nero 275/40/20 tires, with 16500 miles; not quite to the wear bars, but real close. I’ve been looking for new tires as I guess I might have about 2,000 miles left, maybe. I live in the rural parts of my state so you can drive pretty fast even going to the local Wal-Mart and there’s one curve I like to take in the 50’s so that’s kind of the driving style my area allows, fun. I’ve narrowed my search to Michelin Pilot Sport 4S or Firestone Firehawk Indy 500. I’m pretty sure that out of a population of some 327 million, US alone, there are at least some SRT/HELLCAT Challenger owners that have one or the other of these tires on their car; I’m asking what are your thoughts/experiences/ would you ever buy again, etc. with them.

    Thank You

    I am on my 2nd set of Firestone, 1st set went 33,000 miles. not bad , could had gone farther but they had been on the car for about 5 years so they were getting in the rough ride and hard category. I actually sold them to a guy in need and bought another set of Firestone Indy 500. I use the stock sizes of 245/45/20......these tires have great grip. I have no complaints at all about these tires. they handle well in the rain and last a long time, now I don't do burnouts with them, cause you know tires do cost money and unless you have a money tree for tires. do what you please...lol


    btw, my car has 95,000 miles on it and I put about 5,000 miles a year on it. since 2014 when i got a 2nd vehicle for work.

    I would definitely go with the Indy 500's, I had them on my 73 Scamp when I was doing shows. I got a lot of miles out of those tires, and when I sold the car there was about 85% of the thread left. I have P Zero's on my new Challenger R/T and they are really soft. You might get 25,000 miles out of them but the Firestones have a 60,000 mile warranty. I don't think you could get a better tire for the money.

    My father swore by Michelins! I bought his 2006 Chrysler 300C Heritage edition from him when he decided to buy a new Varvatos Edition. He had just put Michelins on the car and they wore like iron. In fact, I had to replace them because they had dry rotted out even though there was still alot of tread left on the tires. It was my fault for letting the car sit while I drove a comp[any vehicle.
