HPDE Tires - '15 Challenger SRT 392

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Looking forward to joining you all for my first of what I hope will be many HPDE events.

 

I'm having a heck of a time choosing what tire to purchase for track/autocross days. I will be buying a Leroy Engineering trailer with equipment so I can swap them out at the track - so they can be dedicated competition tires.

 

The problem is the SRT 392's huge tires (courtesy of the huge Brembo brakes and discs) there seem to be no actual competition tires available: 275/40-20

 

This seems to limit me to the following. Curious people's thoughts and recommendations:

 

  1. Michelin Pilot Sport 4
  2. Pirelli P Zero
  3. Dunlap SP Sport MAXX GT DSST (seriously, that's a name?)
  4. Yokohama Advan Sport
  5. Pirelli P Zero Rosso
  6. Continental ExtremeContact Sport
  7. Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06
  8. Nitto NT05
  9. Nitto Invo

 

I appreciate all the feedback!!!!

 

Regards

Jarhead

I started HPDE in an SRT8 Charger with 20in wheels and know your pain......since you're just starting out, USE STREET TIRES! Yes, you will wear them out faster but you will learn faster this way. Street tires "talk" to you while race tires have tons of grip........until they suddenly have NONE (the first sign of this typically happens when going hard into a corner but the car goes straight). Besides, what's the difference in buying 2 sets of tires now vs 2 sets less quickly back-to-back.

 

 

Now, 18in Mustang wheels will fit the lugs if you bore out the center hub a little. I ended up buying a set someone had already modified and it worked great. I later bought a 96 mustang race car and the wheels fit on that too.
