    Nitto 555R on stock wheels

    Does anyone have any pics of 555r's on stock f-body wheels (I think 17 x 9)?

    I heard nitto's run small, and the 275/40/17 Avon Tires I have now "bulge" just a tiny bit more than my fuzion ZRi's in the same size. I don't want my front tires to seem bigger than my rears lol

    I heard nitto 315's or actually more like a 285, so any pictures or info would be GREATLY appreciated. thanks!

    i have seen the 315 nitto's on the 11" wide wheels and they fill them out pretty well. I think the 315's would be to wide for the 9" wide wheels.

    Nittos run very small, regardless of what their website's "specs" say.
    Here is a launch pic of my car (on stock 17x9 SS wheels) with Yokohama 275/40 fronts and Nitto 275/40 drag radials on the back. You can clearly see they are narrower than the fronts when comparing the tire's position to the rim's edge, which looks stupid IMHO. The rim is actually wider than the tire, but the fronts show that the tire is slightly wider than rim, like it should be. Nitto 315's on a 17x11 looks the same way, which is why mine will be on 17x9.5" TT2's, instead of 11" wide ones.
