I just bought some Cooper Zeon RS3-S and I had high hopes but so far have been disappointed with the traction.

That said it's been rather cold since I got them. I really do hope they perform better in the warmer weather.

Heard good things about the new BF Goodrich Sport Comp II, but I couldn't wait for them...they're new and should be shipping by now though.

Look into those.

2007 R/T R&T - "HEMIGASM" - Gone but not forgotten.

2010 SRT8 - Sold

2015 SRT 392 - RIP

2016 SRT 392 - 20% Tint, Black Carbon Fiber Racing Stripes, BT catch can and underhood bling, tinted tails and sidemarkers, Rennen Forged RL-55X Concave ordered...

Obligatory Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta mention...

If your in texas like your name suggests, you don't really need an all-season tire and the Vredesteins do great in wet/dry.

I have new Pirelli P-Zeros on my Charger. The grip on these P-Zeros is amazing. Night and Day compared to the Firestone's that came on the car.

I like the factory hankook ventus v12 Evo k110's in 255 width. Very quiet, and I've never had a traction problem I didn't deserve....

2008 Brilliant Black SRT8
Option Group III
Corsa Xtreme
Lots of BT and BND
