2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Getting Drag Radials, Wide-Body

By Team Writer / February 2, 2017

Dodge revealed that the 2018 Challenger Demon gets 18×11-inch lightweight alloy wheels all around, which come wrapped in Demon-branded 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R tires. That makes the Demon the first production car ever to wear drag radials from the factory, according to Dodge. Those wheels are smaller in diameter but much wider than the 20×9.5-inch alloys offered on the Hellcat. The Demon’s 315s are also a good deal meatier than the Hellcat’s 275s.

Key Takeaways:

  • Last week, Dodge teased all the things it did to reduce weight in the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon, hinting that the new variant weighs at least 200 pounds less than a Challenger Hellcat. We also got a glimpse at the wheels, and noticed that they appear wider than those on a current Hellcat.
  • The latest video posted to www.ifyouknowyouknow.com confirms that the Demon will ride on wider wheels and will have widened fenders to match.
