Are the Nt05 a good tire

I'm thinking about putting nt05 275/35r19 on the brembo wheels cause they are the only tire that looks like they will hook up

Yeah 19s are the oddball wheel size it seems like. My only complaint is that they are pretty noisy when going down the highway, but that's what my stereo is for.

Next time just make sure you're in the proper section then in the top right corner press the icon and it'll prompt you for a few different things, "new thread" will be on that list. Then your thread will be in the section of your choosing!

Well I have no issues in rain but I don't drive in heavy rain ad I drive pretty cautiously when it's drizzling.

I love my NT05's they hook like a mf! They are terrible in the rain and are a dry street summer tire, my buddy has a set of Mickey Thompson ET street and and the nitto hooks just as good if not better

Well, if I ever get my throw away truck for DD I will put NT05s on. Can't afford a misshap on slick roads at 5:00 I'm the morning.

Yeah 19's are kind of an odd choice for Ford to make an option... There really isn't a huge selection of tires.

Well they are "stylish" I guess. I do like some of the wheels that are out there in 19, even the factory GT wheels. It just sucks about the tire selection.

To be totally honest though we are going to get more performance out of a smaller thus lighter wheel.
I've been wondering about doing some 40-50 series 17" tires on my V6. Combine those with a 4.10 rear end and should gear it down a bit. IF a tuner can compensate the speedo anyway. Maybe a good track package or something...

Just want to make sure you guys arent getting two different tires confused. Nitto makes 2 models of the nt05. First is the regular Nt05, which is a summer performance tire, and then they make the nt05r, which is a street radial. Comparable to the mt et streets.
