Edit to answer the question in the OP's OP: Specifically, a narrow-body Challenger.
@2ndgen showed us this link to a very methodical and detailed wheel fitment thread:

https://www.hellcatforum.org/threads/one-wheel-tire-thread-to-roll-them-all.3761/

But, anyway, pics, please, with all pertinent particulars, such as wheel brand, tire brand and model, wheel width, offset, if brakes cleared without spacers, etc, so your fellow Hellcat herders can benefit and stretch the lead Dodge has on the street even further ahead.

1Show pics of your wheels if you name them so we can know by looking which wheels they are. It really helps.

Another benefit: less tire slippage, greater tire longevity, better brake balance, thus more safety! Think of the kittens!

Well at least the phrasing to the question is somewhat unique...

NB or WB?

Makes a difference...

BTW, welcome to the forum's.

agreed Nine G that the tire needs to stay square to the fender. Any bulge loses all visual appeal to me. With that said, looks like you can still get an incredible amount of tire under a standard body HC!

A 305 street tire is the widest you can go in the rear of a Challenger without having to mod the wheel wells. Some have used a Nitto 315 drag radial in the rear without mods but that's because they run a bit narrow. If you want a street tire with a 315 or wider to fit in the rear, you're looking at modding the wheel wells or pushing the tire out further which will poke past the body lines without fender flares. There really isnt many options and once you get beyond a 315 width tire, there aren't many tire options for a 20" wheel either. Pirelli or Michelin and the price of those size tires are rather expensive, ask me how I know.

Hasn't this been asked 1128 times here? Seems to me that this answer is probably here somewhere.

Does anyone know if anyone has tubbed one of these for street?(Or better yet anyone here) I mean I've seen tube chassis tubbed Challengers but not a street car. Is it because it's not a body on frame car and it would be impractical to chop into the structural integrity of the car?
