    Ex Hellcat Owner / New SRT Durango Owner Saying Hello

    I traded in my 2016 Hellcat Challenger, which I enjoyed for 3 years, on a 2018 SRT Durango a few days back.

    I thought I would join the forum so I can learn more about this Awesome SUV.

    Thanks for having me.

    Sweet...you have great taste in vehicles!
    So how was the Hellcat on the street w/275 tires?
    I've long looked and considered buying one...but think it would be much better w/AWD.

    I had a 2003 Cobra and a 2012 Shelby GT500 before the Hellcat, so I knew the OEM tires were the first thing that needed to be changed.

    I ran 20x10.5" wheels wrapped in 305/35/20 Nitto NT555R drag radials full time on the rear, which really made a difference in how the car felt and put a lot more power to the ground.

    Here is a quick video I took while out practicing 1/4 mile runs on old farm roads:
