They are amazing in both. They have so much grip it is amazing. And I know it doesn't bother sine but they are quiet as well. Its important to me because I would rather hear my exhaust / stereo than my tires.

I have only put about 6000 miles on them so far, but you can't even tell. Then again mine are like 3 or 4 months old

I know the rears are 275 40 18, but I don't remember the exact front size. I have staggered 18's. My favorite is the grip, it is amazing. On my 20's I was spinning my tires all the time, with these the car just goes even in the rain. I really just feel planted with these and that's an awesome feeling.

I had a one year gap in between the two so comparing them would be hard. IMO the eagles seemed stickier. They run about 10-20 bucks higher than 555s. I'm also only comparing the two in a strait line performance
