This is a discussion on Nitto's or G-force KDW's? within the Wheels and Tires forums, part of the General Help category; which would be a better tire option? Nitto 555s or BFGoodrich G-force KDW's? and I mean the normal Nitto's, not ...

    which would be a better tire option? Nitto 555s or BFGoodrich G-force KDW's? and I mean the normal Nitto's, not the Drag Radials.

    I just mean for general driving, I want ones that will last a while too. But what ones have better traction for straight line?

    neither, they both suck as far as traction.

    KDW all the way. i just put a set on my car and i love them, and they do hook up, great in fact. i work at a tire store and BFG's are high quality tires. great traction, great wear, and balanced out awesome. take my word for it you wont be disapointed. unless you spend a lot of time at the track you dont need drag radials, and if you drive them on the street they dont last. and i am not sure why people are telling you to get Summitomos? those tires are a joke. its a $90 tire, remember you get what you pay for. look at the tread wear rating, they will last about 10K miles, and its def not gonna hook like the BFG. also look at the temperature and traction ratings. and i am not just gay for the BFG's, i work for goodyear and there are a lot of people out there running the factory f1-gs, and the gs-d3's and ill tell you right now those things are overpriced and low quality.

    awesome, i run them on everything i own, and they work perfectly on the street.

    i tuned an SS yesterday with KDW's on the back and it wouldnt hook for shit

    and i am not sure why people are telling you to get Summitomos? those tires are a joke
    your a joke, you express your opinion with no reasoning at all. good job

    well actually i just said i work in a tire store and have been a tech there for 3 years, so theres my reasoning. and i have seen some of your posts, you seem to do everthing the cheap way, much like a ricer. dont get mad at me man.

    im not mad at you and your 'experience' as a tech at tire store. but that means nothing at all to me. i worked selling tires for about 2 years, so i guess i know too.

    and i have seen some of your posts, you seem to do everthing the cheap way, much like a ricer. dont get mad at me man.
    as for that, id love to see exactly where you get cheap from any of it, much less ricer? because i can build a cost-effective car, that is streetable and also turn good times at the track isnt a reason to be jealous.

    I couldn't hook up 3rd gear with those 315 Sumihomo's.
    Chirp 4th.

    Continental 275's felt like the 315 Sumihomo's.

    Also ran a BFG KDW 315. Out of the street tires they grabbed the best. BUT...still would get pretty loose into 3rd gear.

    I run Nitto DR's all the time for the street now. They will grab first gear for me most of the time.

    HA! jealous?

    if you sold tires you would know what youre saying is ridiculous.

    and our shop is full service d-bag, not just tires.

    and i only said ricer because it seem like you want to have everything without spending money. just like your post in the wheel section....

    Costco sells the KDW's for $196 a tire installed. I am going to go check to see if they have them in stock.

    i ran some nitto 555 extreme drag 315's and they wouldnt hook up in 1st or 2nd

    ET street radials work well, but dont last. ive been getting about 25k/pair out of my sumitomos, work great in the rain, and are half the price of anyone else's

    and i only said ricer because it seem like you want to have everything without spending money. just like your post in the wheel section....
    this is the wheel section

    asshat, its people like you who think their opinion is the only right one who really ruin threads like this

    my apologies to the OP for your ignorance, i don't feel the need to entertain your stupidity anymore
