Nittos unless you aren't putting any power to the ground then the sumitomo will be fine.

sumitomo's arent that bad actually... if you are pretty much stock and don't drive to spiritedly i think you'll be fine with them. If ya feel your rear is all over the map with your current tires than maybe nittos b/c they surely grip better than sumos and thats an understatement. I believe the nitto's will wear faster as well so keep that into consideration too

I just bought some Sumis a couple weeks ago. I ended up getting the HTZ-R 245/40/18 up front and 275/35/18 in the rear. They were alot cheaper than some of the other brands. I paid $794 for all 4 tires disposal fee, alignment and free rotations and flat fixes for life.

I've got the Sumitomos and have had no issues. I bought them mainly for the price and they all had good reviews. I didn't feel the need to buy the Nittos which were considerably more.

I have the HTR-Z II tires and they've been great. Handle nicely in the rain as far as I can tell. No worries.

I have Nittos on my daily driver truck. Different tire type, but I have the Nitto Terra Grapplers (33's) and Nitto does make an awesome product.
