Nitto makes a 555R Drag radial and 555 RII Extreme Road Race tire in 305/35/18. Some of the guys on the site are running both type's of Nitto's with success however the mileage isn't very good if that' a concern of yours.LoneRegister said:Got 19500 miles on the F1's, and now it's time for a new set.
What are the top 3 that everyone is using?
What can I get on there that is bigger than 295, but with a stock car?
Hello there!LoneRegister said:I am in PHoenix arizona, so rain should not be a major issue. I can drive something else should it be raining.
I am definately looking for 20k+ miles. 19.5k on my F1's and they need to be replaced.
I am looking at the Yokohama AVS Sport, and the F1, and the Michelin Pilot Sport.
Are these comparible to the Nitto's? And how long would they last?
The Pilot Sports were definitely better in the rain than the F1's (important if daily driven in the SF bay area!!!), but in the dry I'd say the F1's were marginally better.LoneRegister said:So - all in all, the pilot sports were better than the F1's and lasted comparably?
Also - you mention 315 and 275. Is that on stock rims?
Jofu said:Oh, and yes, all my tires have been on stock rims.
Don't know about the Yokohama AVS Sport, but I had the original F1SC, then went with Pilot Sport (first gen) 315-30-18 back and 275-40-17 front. They were much better in the rain, and quieter.
I recently switched to Nitto 555R2's (305 back and 275 front) since so many people kept raving about them. Holy shoot, they hook like mofos and corner like a dream! Not saying there nothing else better, but at least that's how it feels to me, with my previous tire experience. There's no comparison whatsoever with the F1SC and MPS
I just checked the specs for both MPS and MPS2 on www.tirerack.com, and both a essentially identical, except that the fronts are 25.7" in diameters for MPS, whereas they are 25.6" for MPS2, and the section width is 11" for the former and 10.9" for the latter.LoneRegister said:Bump?
I just want to double check and make sure before I order.
