    Nitto 555R

    So I just got these tires and all I can say is WOW! At a 30 roll in first it hooks so hard in you wouldn't believe. This mod has made my car faster than anything else so far. I would def recommend these tires for the price. You can get 2 to your door for under $300. Nitto 555R's FTW.

    I dunno man I just reused my old tires. The back ones were actually in better shape so I just moved them to the front.

    Yes the Nitto R's are fantastic. I run 305/45-18's on ZO6 10.5" wheels. These tires also make for a great street tire as well as track!

    Is there a chart were it shows the actuall width of the tires, not that its 315 meaning how many inches wide it really is because some 315's are wider then others as well as other tires meaning 275's and so on. I kinda scrape my Sumitumos passenger side fender and it shreds it up a bit and wondering if the nittos are a bit shorter in width so i can still run 315's.

    I agree with Nitto 555Rs for the street. I grip like a SOB now from a roll and even shifting into 2nd/3rd.

    I wouldn't recommend them for the track though.
