I do in 255s and 285s and they hook up quite well. Don't know about the longevity yet only because I have only had them for a month

The ride is quiet, don't hear much if anything for road noise come to think of it.

Mine have held up for almost a year and a half and still going. Most people say they're very quiet, but I hear quite a bit of road noise from them. Might just be a random set of noisy tires. As for traction, they hook up great, just like gregtommy said.

I have them, had about three months. Put almost 7000 miles on them and I love them. They hook up well and are quiet.

440? I bought 275/45/r17s nt555r drag radials from discount tire directs eBay store for 350 for a new set. So I wouldn't waste ur money. Especially not of they're brand new. For a good street performance tire I'd say they are good, but for a drag radial, the 555rs are junk. I can't get them to hook for shiz. That's my .02

Oh I misread and didn't notice u bought all 4. That's a pretty decent deal
