Did you do too many burnouts with your current Dodge Challenger tires? Don’t worry, here are your best options for a brand new set.

To be honest, you don’t have to go overboard with spending on Dodge Challenger tires. Since low sport tires wear out faster, there’s no reason to spend 300 bucks on a set of treads that will last for just a few oil changes.

Yes, there are plenty of biased Dodge Challenger tire reviews from manufacturers wanting you to buy their product. With that in mind, take my professional opinion as a mechanic with plenty of experience mounting tires on Dodge Challengers.

I realize that Challenger owners either drive very conservatively or too aggressively. Consequently, the amount of money you spend on your Challenger tires should depend on how much rubber you like to burn.

I’ve ridden on all types of tires, and I’ve been digging around for the best tires for Dodge Challengers. As a result, here are my top picks:

Aside from being a personal favorite, I think Continental tires are basically everyone’s favorite based on what I’ve seen come through the shop. Through the years, I’ve mounted and maintained so many sets of these Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 on sports cars that I lost count.

Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 tires provide ultra-high performance in both dry and wet conditions while maintaining the durability to hold on tight during rapid acceleration and cornering.

You’ll notice that the tread pattern of Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 tires is a performance-tuned all-season style that’s unique from other sport tires. I’ve mounted these tires onto customer cars during 3-foot snowstorms, and the difference they made during the test drive was unbelievable.

You also won’t find many sport tires that come with a 50 thousand-mile warranty like these. Did I mention that these are half the price of other sport-performance tires?

The great part about Continental and General tires is their visual treadwear indicators. For example, these tires have ‘D-W-S’ printed on the tread pattern that wears down one at a time. So, when all three letters appear on the tire, the treads are suitable for dry, wet, and snow conditions. As the treads wear down, the ‘S’ disappears first notifying the user that the tires will no longer perform as well in snowy conditions.

Next, the ‘W’ disappears notifying the driver that the tires won’t perform as well in wet conditions. Once the third ‘D’ wears off of the treads, the tires are no longer suitable for dry conditions and should be replaced.

Fullway HP108 is the go-to Amazon special for buying new Dodge Challenger tires.

For under a hundred bucks a tire these are a great option for Challenger drivers who like to ride their tires hard and replace them often.

These aren’t the best quality tires by any means, but they’ll work great for around-town Dodge Challengers on a budget. If you like to burn out and waste your tire treads, these are the go-to!

Fullway HP108s have a ‘W’ speed rating for safe speeds of up to 186 MPH. That’s a bit below the top speed of the Dodge Challenger which is 203 MPH.

Would I put these tires on my Dodge Challenger? Not in a million years. But anyone who is tight on a budget or just doesn’t like to spend a lot on tires will appreciate this Fullway HP108 tire set.

I do like the asymmetrical circumferential tread pattern on these for sure, and these treads filter out the water nicely when hydroplaning. It’s a flowy all-season tread pattern. The only problem is that these don’t come with a warranty, so the quality control is a complete mystery.

So, if you like to rip the tires off your Challenger on the reg, go with these Fullways to save a buck or two.

At just over two hundred bucks a tire, these Pirellis are nicer than any tire you’ll find for your Dodge Challenger, and they’re also significantly less expensive than other high-end tire brands like Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and Bridgestone Potenza.

Choose from different Pirelli submodels for your Challenger, including:

Want excellent handling and reliable summer traction? These P Zero are preferred by luxury car owners over any other set.

When mounting up these tires, I always notice the perfect mix of carbon black and silica in the tread compound. You’ll without a doubt notice an improvement in handling and overall ride quality if you switch out to these.

These tires are also famous for how quiet they are due to their Pirelli Noise Cancelling System.

These P Zero tires have a uniform warranty for up to one year or 2/32” of treadwear.

The all-season P Zero tires are equally amazing. In my opinion, these perform better than any other sport tire in the rain because of their lateral siping, and they also have winter siping in the inboard blocks.

Needless to say, these are your high mountain go-to for a Dodge Challenger. These all-season P Zero tires have a solid warranty for up to 50 thousand miles, so they’re a bit more worth the money compared to the regular Pirelli P Zero.

Many drivers are loyal to Falken tires because they typically last a long time and typically don’t have problems with uneven treadwear, balancing, etc. These are ultra-high performance tires rated for speeds of up to 186 MPH (300 kilometers per hour) which is a safer bet for the Challenger’s ultra-fast top speed of 200+ MPH compared other tires.

The downside to these tires is that the summer version doesn’t have a mileage warranty. Regardless, the warranty isn’t that big of a deal because these are more of a name brand tire with a good reputation. Summer sports tires typically don’t have good warranty offers anyway because fast cars tend to rip through tires.

A solid all-season sport tire option for high-quality and long-lasting treads that don’t cost as much as Pirelli or Goodyear.

Warning: If they don’t say all-season, they are not winter tires. Make sure you buy the all-season option if you live in colder areas. You might also try Falken Ziex as an all-season option.

I would only buy these if they were on sale, but I do like the Falken brand and I’ve seen good things from them.

Buy tires like Goodyear Eagle Sport or Michelin Pilot Sport if you’re into racing, and always go with the all-season option if you live in conditions below freezing temps.

NASCAR uses this same Goodyear Racewrap construction for their racing tires, so it’s safe to say these are a good bet for any Dodge Challenger.

Features like linked outboard shoulder blocks on the Eagle Sport All-Seasons provide sturdy cornering in both wet and dry conditions, and in general, you’ll notice an all-around improvement in driving performance when switching from other tires.

Yes, they are expensive, but they’re worth it. Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season tires come with a solid 6-year/50 thousand mile treadwear warranty that’s generous for muscle car owners that like to put the pedal to the metal.

Keep in mind, that any tire will wear out fast if you drive aggressively in your Dodge Challenger, so it’s smart to accommodate your budget when buying tires.

Don’t buy expensive tires like this if you need to replace them every 6 months. The Continental ExtremeContact tires I listed above are much less expensive and about the same quality, just FYI.

What To Look For When Buying The Best Tires For Dodge Challenger?

Here are a few notable factors to be aware of when buying new Challenger tires:

Tire Type

Since Challenger tires are a low-profile design, they need sports tires. Here are two common options:

Performance summer tires

Performance tires have fewer sipes and a firmer tread compound for faster speeds. The downside to driving on summer tires is that they hydroplane much easier.

All-season sport tires

All-season sports tires have better treads for wet road performance compared with other sports car tires.

Treadwear Warranty

It’s always a good idea to read the entirety of the warranty info before buying tires for your new Dodge Challenger.

How Much Do Tires For Dodge Challenger Cost?

Don’t forget to pencil in the cost for mount and balance when buying new Challenger tires. Here’s a quick ballpark pricing estimate:

Four New Tires

Four new tires cost anywhere from ~$500-$1300. Don’t spend any more than $300 a tire for your Dodge Challenger. Honestly, $200 a tire is what I’d pay for a decent

Two New Tires

~$200-$600 for two new Challenger tires.

Single Tire

~$100-$300 per tire.

Don’t forget to replace the tires in pairs if your Challenger has the all-wheel-drive option.

What Tire Size Is Best For A Dodge Challenger?

The newer Dodge Challengers have wheel diameters of 19 and 20 inches, and the exact tire size depends on the sub-model. The Challenger has several different submodels, including:

  • SRT Hellcat
  • SRT Hellcat Redeye
  • SXT
  • GT
  • Challenger R/T
  • R/T 392
  • Challenger Scat Pack

How Long Should Your Dodge Challenger Tires Last?

Anywhere from 30-50 thousand miles is a safe bet.

When To Replace Tires On Your Dodge Challenger?

2/32” (1.6 mm) tread depth is the rule of thumb. I wouldn’t replace Challenger tires when the tire threads start to show through. This is a low-profile and wide-body car that doesn’t cause too much danger if the tires blow out.

Does The Brand Matter For A Dodge Challenger When Replacing Tires?

Yes. I like to put American or European radial tires on American cars. Japanese tires like Toyo and Yokohama are pretty durable as well, and if you want cheap tires for burning out, then I’d go with the Fullways listed above.

Other tire brands to check out for the Dodge Challenger include Bridgestone Potenza, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, Firestone Firehawk Indy 500, etc.

Does the Year of Your Dodge Challenger Matter When Buying New Tires?

Yes, Challenger tires and wheels have changed a lot over the years. I recommend you plug in your Dodge Challenger year and sub-model into Tire Rack’s website for a complete list of compatible tires.

What Are The Biggest Tires I Can Put On A Dodge Challenger?

Any aspect ratio above 40 (the middle tire number) is too big for the Challenger and will rub against the fenders.
