It takes more to heat them up vs other brands but stick better than most once heated

They honestly do not need to be heated. A quick spin and they should be ready to go.

I'm not a fan of the 555rs for a actual drag radial. They do good, and can be ran year around and in weather ect, I consider them more of a DD tire.
Just give them a quick spin like I said and you will be good.
I have ran the tires more than once.
If your looking for a drag radial to actually stick you need to look at M&H, MT , or the nt05r from nitto.

Thanks. Im gonna keep the nitto for the street. Is it true that manual cars have a harder time with a drag tian a slick?

Yes. If you are at the actual track then you will do better with a slick.
You can break a axle with a drag radial.
Just use the 555rs for your DD tires and then get a different set of rear wheels with a slick, for the track

I ran the M&H slicks for a short time.
Also ran the M&H drag radials also. Which is built like a slick. Only downside to the drag radials is they will get a flat spot just like a slick if it sits on the ground for a couple weeks on the car.
