The injectors definitely make noise, but I also noticed a bit of lifter noise on cold starts before I switched to synthetic.it's not the lifter's you hear/its the fuel injectors clicking. in the morning when they are at full duty cycle you will hear them more and the hemi motor cover amp's the sound.
Laurie, I live in MI and have gotten by for two winters on my stock Michelins. But we don't get much snow here. If I lived in CO, I'd invest in Bridgestone Blizzaks, which many find to be an excellent snow tire available in our size.Thanks for the noisey lifters sound advice. How about driving in snow/ice? I haven't had a rear wheel drive car for about 25 years and I'm a little nervous about icey conditions and my 2007 Charger w/Hemi. I live in Colorado and winter is coming. I do like that I can downshift which really helps avoiding the use of brakes on ice.
