I am wondering what others have replaced their EMTs with and how you like them.

I decided on some Nittos but went with 40s in the rear for better dragrace performance. As a result, I lost some cornering performance...way too much roll compared to the EMTs. Now I'm looking for a better compromise.

Thanks

Hi Cemo... which Nittos did you go with and exactly what size "40" on the rear.

I assume run flat capability is not an issue with you?

PM me and I'll try and offer some help. :)

Agent- I have the standard NT-555's right now. Sizes are 255/40/17 up front and 285/40/18 in the back. I'm satisfied with their performance for the most part as I posted.

Now I'm looking for a purpose built road race tire. I don't care about run flats or rain performance. I would love to have some of the Yokohama A032R's but they don't have the right size for the back. Here's what they have that might work but I'm not sure:

P275/40ZR17 60AA 9.5 8.5-11.0 10.7 25.8 10.4 6 11.9 804 1433 @ 44
P315/35ZR17 60AA 11 10.0-12.0 12.6 25.8 11.6 6 11.9 804 1433 @ 44

Any other suggestions?

Thanks
