    I don't do burnouts, just daily driven. Already need to replace the OEM tires with just under 18k miles. Goodyear Supercar tires suck. Will probably go with Goodrich. I have to keep the same size tire to comply with the road hazard warrantee that I purchased with my Scat Pack Shaker 6M. But anyone that has one knows the stock tires are the weakest link. I will update with what I get later today.

    hmmmm, i had a set of Goodyear RSA's on mine for over 33,000 miles. when I changed out I went with the Firestone Indy 500's. again, my first set of those I got over 30,000 miles and they even had a little left on them so I sold them for $100 on my 2nd set now. love the way they grip and handle in the rain.

    When I bought the car I also bought the tire warrantee (road hazard) from First Mile. And unfortunately, to keep the warrantee I have to replace with the same tires that came on the car. So I had to get 2 more Eagle F1 Supercars. Next time I will know to not get the warrantee so that I can upgrade my tires. But from all of the online reviews I read on Goodyear's site, 18K is all you can expect from them. Great.

    The RSA is all season, the F1 Supercar is a soft summer only tire

    I got about 16k out of the F1 Supercar on my Mopar 11, my 16 Scat Pack has the RSA's and at 21,000 and they might as well be bald for all the traction they provide.

    Traction isn't any better with the F1. Very hard to launch.

    I had to replace my F1's at 15,000 miles on the rear. Just replaced the fronts at 25,000. No burnouts to speak of, but driven pretty hard. Went with the Continental DWS Extreme Contact. Love them...

    The First Mile Warrantee I purchased for the tires really handcuffs me. I can only replace with OEM tires. Hindsight, I won't purchase that again and go with brand and size I want. Would really love to have bumped up to 305's. I could have but would have thrown away an expensive warrantee. Lesson learned. When I upgrade to a Hellcat, I know I won't purchase the tire warrantee.

    never heard of purchasing a tire warranty from the dealer, never been offered one but that goes to say I haven't ever bought a tire warranty from any tire dealer, Now I have bought road hazard warranty from the tire place I buy my tires from and the deal real well with that.
