    you need to look at DRs from two views
    1. tire life/street and track
    2. traction

    these two are rarely if ever the same

    for the three popular brand nitto 555Rs, BFs and M/Ts

    1. nitto, BFGs, M/Ts
    2. M/Ts, BFGs, nittos

    these are the accepted ranking it seems....so take those into consideration

    i chose to run the nittos as i DD my car and right now i am a bolt on/fully suspension (almost) car that sees some track...so treadlife is very important to me

    Maybe the Nitto's are the way to go. What about the NT05's?

    i have the 315/35r17 BFG's and after 1,000 miles there is almost no wear at all. these tires will last at least 10k-15k miles but the traction is awesome. i run them at 30psi on the street and they handle great

    dicount tire direct was cheapest for me about 45 days ago. the tire was slightly more then at tire rack but the shipping was free so it save me about $50 for two

    The Nittos will get you more miles, but the BFGs hook up a lot better. That's what you need to base your decision on.
