    Nitto

    I have The same tires on my car. I would say they are better on the street than on the track. But still great on track. On the Plus side they have a 15000 mile tread wear life. while other street slicks only have 5000... Performance is good but i still think swaping out tires at track to MT's or something is the way to go..

    I would have to agree here, they hook awesome on the street. My car was all over the place with tirespin in first and second gear with the stock tires. Not even a squeal out of the nittos. They don't seem to hook as good at the track, but they are still far better than the street tires. I have to burn them in the waterbox for quite a while to get them to stick.

    in dry conditions, very well.
    even in rain they work good, you just cant go 65 and above when the tires are showing wear.
