They stick to no matter what after they warm up a little. They should be fine.

They will get sticky, but they need to have a little heat. I jumped out into traffic when I first got them and they were cold, it was fun I won't do it again

Just be careful in the rain, they are summer/sport tires so they should hold in the rain as long as you don't gas it a lot. I wouldn't be so worried, they are good tires and most people will give positive feedback about them.

Hey I live in Orlando and my nt555s stick pretty good in the rain. I rarely hydroplane anymore. They're a great tire for our state

Tires stick great in the rain if they are warmed up first. I didn't think SC got cold enough to effect traction, but the first winter day and I hit them without warming then up first and wow was that a wild ride. But when warmed, they stick like glue even in torrential rain fall.

Turtlestang39,

Great choice of wheels! The bullitt wheels look awesome on the S197's, definitely one of my favorite set ups. The Nitto Nt555 is a great tire, you'll love the found traction this set up gives you! All tires are going to "spin" if you stab the throttle in the rain, however the Nt555's are rated at a 9.5 out of 10 for wet traction so it's very minimal.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions or need access to the forums discount code. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

Get falken tires. I have the billits as well. I had the nitto for four months and they went to ****. I have had the falkens for over and year and look brand new. Every tire place I went to told me to stay away from the nitto tires. Falkens are a bit more money but well worth it.

Ya the nittos aren't the best tire out there but still a good tire for the money. Looks good though!

OP: looks like a sweet setup. Be sure to keep us updated on how you like the tires and how long they last.

Stang23: I've heard a lot of people say they love these tires. What tires do you think are better?

I've never used nitto's, but a bunch of my buddies run their A/T's and their S/R's on work trucks and 4x4's. They last a LONG time and perform well. I loved the Falkens, but they wore out really quickly, especially considering how much highway driving I was doing. They handled really well, but the Michelin pilots handled almost as well and lasted a lot longer.

I'm not trying to start a fight, I just like to see reviews on how tires handled through the curves, at the drags, and longevity. Tires are expensive, so more info is always better.

Best tires you can get for a truck, hands down. At $364 a tire, there the only ones I'll buy.

I have BFG A/T's on my truck and love em. My last truck I ran Mickey Thompson Baja crawlers and then IROK Super Swampers, both great Offroad, but not the on road performance and durability I wanted. My buddy has close to 50k on his Nitto's (F250) and that's pulling a couple tons most of the time.

I just don't trust the reviews on websites, I think a lot of them are fake. We gotta inform each other and stick it to the man!
