    I wonder what the 305 tires are? Make and model.
    Performance is identical as the earlier Hellcats when fitted with after market drag radials.

    EDIT: Found my answers...

    · Pirelli All Season Performance Tires on 11" wheels - Standard

    · No mention of forged wheels and No wheel options.

    · front track grows by 1.6 inches and the rear track by two inches even.

    EDIT2: Now it would be nice to know how/why the track increased so much. It certainly wasn't only for the extra tire width. Did the mounting hubs actually increase or was it all by wheel offset

    I think wheel offset, as with my 305's on 10 inch rims the is about 1/8" clearance between the sidewall of the tire and inner rear fender liner at the front part of the tire.
