I struggled with making the final decision of identifying which tire to install on my '15 Challenger R/T Scat Pack. My car is a daily driver where I utilize the concrete pavement freeway, mostly, to and from work, including in town driving on weekends. I do not live in a state where driving in snow presents a concern. Given the temperate year round climate it's a non-issue and I didn't want to go the all season route for this particular car. The OEM tires were 3 season (Goodyear F1 Eagle Supercar)(245 45 R20) and I truly appreciated the grip and control in both wet and dry driving conditions. However, the original set only lasted about 19,000 miles before the tread pattern approached the wear bar. The rear tires wore the fastest, even with regular tire rotations. I totally get the softness of the rubber issue, however, having to spend $1000 + for a new set of tires every couple of years is a deal breaker for me. I finally decided on the Michelin Pilot Super Sport series tire. Given the Michelin quality, 3 season grip ability, along with the 30,000K warranty, I figured all my must haves were met as they should last 3+ years for my driving style. 500 miles in and it appears I've made the perfect choice. They ride terrific, very little road noise and grip the pavement just as designed. I opted to stay with the 245 45 R20 size. If you're looking for a replacement tire for the OEM 3 season tire chosen for this car, you should seriously consider the Michelin.
