Awesome! I noticed Goodyear stock one year ago was $16.62 and traded for $6.14 a share today. I'm researching the company and might put in an after hours bid at $6.12.

JAR ! Summer tires in the North East? Are you going to get a WInter Beater? Those Challengers would look 1000% better with 16" rims and something resembling the Wheel / Tire combo from the 70's Retro on retro. Instead of Hot Wheels toy car DONKed. Me, I would just get cheap tires to burn up. smile Make friends with the local tire store to get 80% worn take offs smile

I know the feeling, I have a set of my absolute favorite tires to run on my Charger - Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 ultra high performance summer tires - in my garage waiting to be put on, but I need to use up my current set of cold-weather tires first (Kumho Ecsta PA51). I'm driving everywhere I can think to drive to put miles on these tires to use them up so I can get my Firestones put on, but they just won't wear! Anyway gotta go, gonna take a 5 hour test drive to put some miles on these Kumhos grin

It was under $5 a share like a month ago. Strongly considering buying. Good dividend for sure.

No, but I'm also not paying near that much.

No, I'll run dedicated snows.

16" wheels wouldn't even clear the smaller rear brakes, let alone the huge front brakes. Need an absolute minimum of 18" for the front and 17" for the rear.

He can get 18" winter wheels/tires, which is manageable. For me, I need at least 20" to clear the brakes, and running 20" winter wheels and skinny winter tires is cost prohibitive and impractical, so my Charger gets parked for winter.

I told a friend of mine not to run DRs on his c5 vette back in the day. I'd offer you the same advice about these tires. He didn't listen to me. The wreck was bad. I doubt you will, either, and I hope your experience isn't the same.

Ouch, sorry you had to settle. Those Eagles are nice, but Michelin Pilot Sport 4's are so much better they might save your life. I'm no Goodyear fan, but I have real track time in LX based vehicles on Goodyear F1 Summers. They get really greasy when pushed hard and add to that the treadwear is lousy...

I have been told the big engine Challengers have a manufacturing defect with extreme short tire life. banana

Agreed. Also they are very cold natured tires. Michelin is where it's at with the Pilot Sport types.

I would run four used wheelbarrow tires before giving a cent to Michelin under any circumstances.
