tires??

I currently have the mickey thompson street comp tire on my GT but it don't get very good traction in the rain. I need some type of tire that is all-season and can last awhile as well. I heard Nitto was good but I like to hear of some opinions as well before I make a purchase. Thanks guys.

I have nitto nt555s and I'm not really impressed with the wet traction. A all season performance tire would be best for a balance between wet and dry traction. Continental dws is a popular choice.

There are compromises with every tire. When you want better traction in the rain you sacrifice dry traction. Best to figure out what you drive in most of the time and buy a tire for that and then adjust your driving for the other climate.

I am very happy with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 I have had for last year. Very good traction on dry pavement and good traction in rain as well.

And if you needed an all season or an all weather tire... why in hell did you buy a summer ultra performance tire?

When I purchased those, I planned on only driving the car on nice days but that didn't happen after all.

Eh, been there. The Continentals are really good. If you live in an area that gets in the 30 degree range in the winter you won't want the Nittos or any summer tire.

I have the continentals and my biggest complaint about them is the sidewalls a very soft for a performance tire but they're supposedly putting a second layer in the side wall to stiffen them up
