In an adrenaline-pumping tire-shredding challenge, Jonathan Benson at Tyre Reviews put the mighty Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT to the test, pushing the latest set of ultra-high-performance all-season tires to their limits on a small track. With the HELLCAT’s 717 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, these tires were in for a wild ride.
Seven contenders stepped up to the plate: BFGoodrich g Force Comp 2, Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 Plus, Atlas Force, General G Max AS 05, Vredestein Hypertrack, Pirelli P Zero AS Plus 3, and the Falken Azenis FK460. Among them, the Pirelli and Falken models shone brightly, representing cutting-edge tire technology.
The track saw the Challenger maneuvering through wet corners and tight curves, challenging the tires to maintain traction and grip. In this test, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 Plus stood out, impressing with exceptional wet handling performance and securing the top spot in this category.
On dry laps, the tires faced the Herculean task of harnessing the HELLCAT’s thunderous power while maintaining precise handling. Pirelli’s P Zero AS Plus 3 emerged as a strong contender, taking the crown for dry handling with its impressive engineering. The Falken Azenis FK460 closely followed, displaying consistent performance and establishing itself as a top performer.
Braking at high speeds is no easy feat, especially with the HELLCAT’s power. Once again, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 Plus demonstrated its prowess, delivering outstanding dry braking performance and cementing its position as a frontrunner.
In wet braking capabilities, the new Pirelli P Zero AS Plus 3 left a lasting impression, securing its place at the top in this critical aspect. Not to be outdone, the Falken Azenis FK460 showcased its tenacity with exceptional dry braking, solidifying its position among the top performers.
After the grueling tests, three tires emerged as true champions: the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 Plus, Pirelli P Zero AS Plus 3, and Falken Azenis FK460. These top performers pushed the boundaries of tire technology, excelling in wet and dry handling, braking, and overall capabilities. If you’re looking for top-notch all-season tires to handle the power of the HELLCAT, these three options should be at the top of your list.
