They are a bit noisier on dry pavement than the stock pirellis, lateral grip is softer, very grippy for straight line starts. I tend not to push them too hard, the SRT would melt them in one winter...

The narrower tire won't offer any curb protection for the factory rims. Better off to put on a set of knockoffs, than replacing a scraped up factory rim

Ready for Winter - Bring it On!

Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1, 265/50R20 on eBay knockoff SRT wheels. Just had to use new wheel nuts because the openings in the knockoffs were too small for the stock nuts.

I've purchased trucks & run of the mill stuff at cost (or below), and never over msrp also. Lets hope your dealer is true to his word, these SRT's are fantastic

Up here we're lucky to get sticker. Difficult to imagine a dealer selling a new release limited run high performance vehicle at cost. Good for you if you managed it. Congrats

I went with a set of knockoff SRT wheels from eBay & mounted 265/50/20 blizzaks on them. Not planning on any 100+mph runs at -20, so this setup will work fine.

So far the mpg computer on my SRT has been fairly accurate, 15mpg in town, 19-20 on the highway. I'm in Canada, so that relates to 15.5L/100km city, 12L/100km highway

The only 93 up here in Alberta is at Husky/Mohawk. Other than them, it's all 91. I don't know that their 93 is any better than the other 91s. I think some launch testing is called for. :-)

One other thing about Shells 'nitrogen'. Almost 80% of the air going into the engine is nitrogen, why would you need even more in the gasoline?

I try to stay with Esso/Exxon for the most part. I also have a 3500 Ram, and get by far the best power & economy with their diesel. Chevron has worked well for me also.
