Got good reviews, and it was stock on the demon, I think...

555RII would be a 335, or 305

I own a set of 315/40-18 555RII's, so it would appear that they do make them in that size. :p
Fwiw - I've owned both and I personally like the RII better. It's as good from a traction standpoint and much better in the rain.

What's the widest I could run on an 18" rim?

I saw someone had 345/35r18 Mickey Thompson ET street Rs and they fit..

All of the 35 series tires I've looked at for the 18" wheel are short. To my eye the 315/40-18 is about as short of a tire as these cars look good with.

Had a bit of bad luck and picked up a nail into the sidewall in one of my drag radials over the weekend so I am trying to buy 305/45R18 ET Street R's and told they are on backorder for 6-8 weeks, at least through Discount Tire. Just FYI...

I have the NT05's on mine currently. I think @vortecd is correct. It's actually a very stable tire on the road through turns. I've never had any other DR's and I haven't had them out in the rain, so I can't compare but there's absolutely no wallow. I'll probably try the 555's next.
Maybe you should get what's available. With oil going up,up,up get them before they're priced like 2x4's :eek:.

My tire guy said he could get Nittos real quick right now, I think I'll jump on a set(555r IIs) for my 20s to daily on because like you said, who knows how long before these are hard to get too!

Will 345/35s fit on a 2020 widebody? Seems like some people have used them without any problems...

Drag wheels and tires or what ever it’s called has some in stock. They might be 17s tho.

Go on Nitto's website and it tells what size wheel you need for what tire size

I wasn't specific, I was referring to "will they fit on the charger without rubbing..."

Thanks, anyway
