The Dodge Demon gets the widest front tires of any production car ever
Dodge released a press photo of its upcoming and secretive Challenger Hellcat Demon, wearing fender flares and super-wide 315-millimetre tires.

Another week, another 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon teaser. We knew this thing was going to be built for the drag strip, but even we weren't expecting this: The Demon will wear 315-width drag radials in the back and in the front. Those are the widest front tires ever fitted to a production vehicle, and they make the Demon the first car to wear drag radials from the factory.



The Demon takes the widest-front-tires crown from the last-generation Camaro Z/28, which wore 305-width tires all around. And while it might seem odd to slap such wide front tires on a car focused on drag racing, think of it this way: When you've burned through the rear tires, you can just rotate the fronts to the back and keep on going. Or if you're a frequent drag strip visitor, you can swap some skinny wheels and tires on the front and have two sets of rear tires ready to roll.



About those tires: They're not the typical factory rubber, either. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon takes advantage of Nitto's NT05R drag radial, basically the closest thing you can get to a slick tire that still has enough tread to be street legal. They're sized 315/40R18 front and rear, giving the Demon a big fat sidewall and wheels small enough that, we imagine, the Demon requires different brakes compared to the rest of the Challenger family that rides on 20s.
