    And yeah Z28, pesky M6 will get me in trouble with super stickies.

    FYI : Nearest track to me is an hour and a half. With that said, I'm only going to get maybe 15 track passes a year or so

    I have had Nitto's and KDW's on the Z. The KDW's were IMO 100% better than the Nitto's for a year round tire. I am currently running 295/35R18 ZR Ulra Sessanta Vredestein tires. Great tire as well but still think BFG has it down with the KDW's. Sumitomo's suck... I have ran many different tires on the Z..

    I'll take a look at the KDW's when I get on a computer.

    The 555's suck, I have nt05r's, the best tire i've ever run on the street. They do pretty well at the track too.

They hook like crazy after they get a little warm, they seem to wear well but I will let you know more on that in the future. I also feel they work well in the rain but that was only once when I got caught in a storm. The ride quality is good and the handling is super. Nuff said. for 645.00 delivered you can't beat the N-555.
    Yeah i wasnt thrilled with the factory GY F-1 GS...( V- patterned tread)But I have had real good grip dry and excellent rain repelling with my Goodyear Eagle F-1 GS-D3`s (275/40 ZR-17) The only drawback @ that time of purchase was the price! $$......

    If you drive the car year round then this tire may not be the best choice because they work best when warm. I only drive my car 15 to 20 times a year between May and October. I still love the 555's but not in snow.

    Car sits for most of the year. I have a DD for the long winter months. I usually get my car out in April depending on salt conditions and weather and drive it to October (That's when it was running every year type deal ) So I could careless about all season driving with these. Spring/Summer/Track/Street only

    Voted 35 sidewall, just because 45's will look too big, are you dropped? If not, do you plan too? I'm thinking you'll have rubbing issues if you go with 45's, at least roll the fenders


    555r's are good tires, wont hold my car if I dump the clutch but that's expected but I roll out of the clutch they'll hook and move nicely (I also have 4.11's). A really good burnout also gets decent traction at the strip.

    Excellent info, stock ride height now but want to lower it later on when the suspension is tired, good thing to think about
