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..

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.

555's are bein run on the front only, 555R's on the rear...unless you meant the R's

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.My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

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.
