Nitto Tire Corp. to be OE on 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
Nitto Tire Corp. is getting an unexpected dose of publicity as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles L.L.C. disclosed that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will roll out on Demon-branded Nitto NT05R drag radials when it debuts at the New York auto show in April.
This fitment makes the Demon the “first-ever factory production car built with drag radials.”
The Demon will sport the special NT05R radials—featuring Dodge’s Demon logo molded into the sidewall—in size 315/40R18, mounted on 18×11 wheels, front and rear. The tyres were designed and developed exclusively for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon using a new compound and specific tyre construction, FCA said.
The special edition Challenger also gains 3.5 inches of width, including fender flares to cover the tyres.
