When I bought my SRT, I wanted vapor chrome Spider Monkeys, which they had to take off another SRT that had the P-Zeroes. In the process of switching the Scorpions onto the wheels, they damaged a wheel (and tried to hide it with a blob of tire sealant). When we saw that they immediately took it into the garage with another new SRT. I assumed they were going to just swap that one wheel, instead they switched sets, and I didn't notice I had summer tires until a month later.
I was a little irritated at first, knowing how short a tread life they have, even though I was getting a $700 option for free. The traction is like nothing I've ever experienced, so I decided to keep them. However, you can't use them below 45 degrees
. I found a mangled set of Spider Monkeys for $750, which I used as a core for an exchange at Detroit Wheel. So for $1800 total I have what is effectively a brand new second of wheels (vs $6000 @ the dealer!) with a gorgeous finish that looks better than the original.
Found the Scorpions for $360 on line, and the only hassle will be getting the wheels and tires to the local exotics shop that has a Hunter machine for proper mounting and road-force balancing.
