I had the Nitto NT05 on my 550hp GTO and was the best tire for the price, I don't think Nittos suck but everyone has there own favorites or own opinions

I've seen the nitto's at the track. They looked good but the guy couldn't get them to hook no matter what he tried.

For my 20'S 8.5
I should get 255/40/20 front
And 265/35/20 back
Does the 8.5 take 265 or less

I am nailing my 1.873 60s on Nitto 555 with 5k launches.

1.7XXs on 555Rs is possible as it has been done. Nittos are actually quite popular amongst Camaro/Mustang owners on every forum I am on for a budget (though they aren't super cheap) sticky tire.

My Nittos in 1st don't break traction. It is a great tire for the money.
