    Nitto Motivo vs. NT555

    Needing new tires for my 2000 WS6 (275/40 17), and have seen alot of recommendations for NT555's, but most of those posts were from a few years back. Anyone out there running Nitto Motivos? Nitto's website comparison shows them being a much better tire than the NT555.

    The Goodyear F1's on there now seem to track terribly when there's grooves in the pavement. I often feel like I may get pulled over for drunk driving if a cop saw me swervin' around like that. I liken it to flying with the Blue Angels in extreme turbulence. Is this typical of the Goodyear F1?

    Also, opinions on the BFG's?

    I hated the Goodyear F1's on my SS so I went with Nitto NT-555's and fell in love with them.

    for the street the 555's are great. Handle wet roads very well for the many rain showers that I get stuck in during the summer.
