    well.... I wasn't going to go 19"s or 20"s a little bit to bling bling for a ws6 lol. I was wondering if i should either go with f1's or nitto DR's on a daily driver.

    From the dig i would stick with the nitto's due to the less sidewall flex and rubber compound the tire is made of... I just ordered the 315-35-17VR Nitto 555 DR because i've heard they were the best plus they have 100 treadwear which means they will survive alot longer then traditional drag tires plus you can use them on the highway and in the rain BUT BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL in the rain!!!!!

    So how many miles do you think I could get out of them? I know theres factors. But just a guesstament.

    It's also not like I'm racing all the time. Do the f1's feel alot more stable in normal driving and highway speeds.? I would think the DR's would feel a bit bumpy at cruising speeds.

    I'm really sorry for all the questions. But it's important for me to make right deicisons for my car.

    the listing i just put up was for the standard 555. not the DRs or or the autocross RII tires. they would last for awhile.

    I use 16" Nitto 555r's all summer and they still look great and that is with over 50 passes down the track. My car is a daily driver, but I don't use them in the winter. When they warm up they hook up pretty good on the street, but in the rain and cold they let loose and I wouldn't feel safe. Most tire stores can order them for you, bought mine at discount tire.
