NITTO TIRES?

Do Nitto tires really run one size smaller than advertised?

Re: NITTO TIRES?

Yes and No. The 555 street radials in a 275 are pretty much the same size as stock 275s that come on the car. However, the 315 drag radials are no where near a 315. They fit perfectly on a 9" rim with very little overhang. 315 BFG and MT drag radials require a 10-10.5" rim and some wheel spaces and/or filing the IRS bolt down.

So, in summary, the bigger sizes are smaller than other brands, the 275s however are about the same size.
