Reaching back a few decades ago to the popularity of its namesake, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is becoming available this spring as one of the more-anticipated high-performance cars – and this latest version, as with the original Hemi Challenger of the 1960s, is riding on factory-equipped Goodyear tires.

Selected to outfit the new models of the Challenger are either the standard Eagle RS-A all-season tires in a 245/45R20 size, or optional Eagle F1 Supercar tires in a 245/45R20 size up front and 255/45R20 in the rear.

The Eagle RS-A has proven to be a popular choice for high-performance autos with its unique asymmetric tread design, according to the company, adding that the ultra-performance tread compound on Eagle F1 Supercar tire helps provide exceptional dry traction and cornering grip.

The ‘08 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and its 425-horsepower engine represent a modern-day tribute to the ‘60s-era Hemi Challenger, which also ran on Goodyear tires.

Goodyear tires are also original equipment on vehicles with nameplates such as Acura, Audi, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jeep, Land Rover, Lexus, Mazda, Mercury, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen.
