Nexen’s N-FERA SUR4G Drag Spec tire comes as OE on the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320.

Dodge selected Nexen Tire for the debut and launch of the new 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, designed to deliver pavement-pounding fun on the dragstrip, the tiremaker says.

The tire, called the Nexen N-FERA SUR4G Drag Spec, was designed together with Dodge and their high-performance team of engineers at SRT to create a street-legal drag tire that can perform on tracks with either minimal track preparation or full track preparation.

“We are an incredibly passionate group of racing enthusiasts here at Nexen Tire with a strong motorsports heritage of designing tires that perform incredibly well on the track, but also can be daily street tires. To be selected by one of America’s favorite muscle car brands was humbling for Nexen Tire as we strive to build the highest in quality tires, but to still make them affordable for the average consumer,” said Kyle Roberts, marketing director for Nexen Tire USA. “Dodge and SRT continue to be an industry leader in building out performance cars that buck the system. When other automakers are moving away from motorsports, Dodge jumps in with multiple cars that are race inspired. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is one of them.”

Named for the quarter-mile distance (1,320 feet), the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is powered by the 392 HEMI V-8 engine that delivers 485 horsepower and 475-pound.-foot of torque and is mated to the quick-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission with class-exclusive TransBrake. With a quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.7 seconds at 115 miles per hour, the showroom-stock 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is he fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available, Nexen says.

The Nexen N’FERA SUR4G Drag Spec will come in only one size (275/40R20 102W), and it will be a street-legal drag radial tire. The tread pattern is a non-directional pattern that allows unrestricted tire rotation to extend the life of the tire at the drag strip. The proprietary tread compound is exclusive to Dodge and the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. The tire has been tested around the country on multiple tracks to ensure maximum performance regardless of surface.
