bought charger wheels for my trep.

so i finally decided to pick up a set of charger wheels for my trep. got them of ebay, cant wait for them to get here. im stuck between which 245/45r18 tires to get. i am particular to goodyears so i was think eagle GT's or Eagle F1 all-seasons. but i was hoping to get your guys opinions on some tires. as who better to ask than the people that have these size tires on their cars i dont really mid paying extra for tires that have good tread life and perform well. i just want to get my moneys worth cause these tires in this size are already expensive as it is. thanks in advance for all input

When it comes time to get new tires, either on my Specials or my SRTDs, I'm leaning towards Bridgestones. Not sure what model, since it will be a while before I need tires, lmao.

Nice purchase! Yea the stock trep lugnuts work fine for these wheels. I wouldn't use the charger lugnuts on your intrepid.

I have these but they are not in stock. Reason being they are that good of a tire.

I have been pleased with the Goodyears I purchased for my Charger wheels. I did get the 245/45/18 as Daytrepper suggested...
Got the Goodyear Authority for mine. I think they are v or w rated...(168 MPH) All walmarts carry them I paid $155.00 each for them. Whole shit and sha-bang totaled $750.00 I did get the road hazard warranty...mainly because there is a WalMart anywhere you go! If you have a problem...any walmart stocks these tires and its a good warranty...already had to use it once...sayed me the entire cost of a tire already.

You probably already sorted this out...stock lug nuts but make sure they are for ALLOY wheels and not for STEEL wheels. Big difference!!
Also, the Trep has 12 mm studs...holes for charger wheels are 14MM!!
ALLOY lug nuts...very important!!
