    New Front Tires

    Looking to get new front tires. On a budget and would like to stay under $100 per tire. I found some Riken Raptor tires for $85. Any opinions? Thanks!

    I have the nitto 555rs on the back now. I dont really corner really hard or anything and rarely race anyone. I just want an inexpensive good front tire.

    i don't think i would unless i need them asap and cheap. summit has them. i like the nitto 555's not the drag radial just the street tire they do weel in the rain and no to bad on traction. i can get the for around 140 each shipped.

    I have them on my z28, same size. Idk what youd use them for.. like normal driving or whatever. but I liked them, def better than sumitomos. All I do in the car is burnouts in a straight line or driving normal, nothing real crazy.

    I run the Rikens too. They aren't the best but are pretty good especially for the price. I have a spare set in the garage waiting for me to melt the current ones off.

    Yes the NT555 street tires are good. I cut a 1.71 60' with them at 22 psi.
