sammy13,

We've had a lot of good feedback with the Nitto 555's for daily drivers. Of course these tires aren't as efficient in heavy rain or snow, like others are. They offer an excellent dry handling for any kind of spirited racing!

We also have some Sumitomo all-season tires too. They're even better in poor weather, but less efficient for racing. Sometimes you have to compromise in order to get a dry that works with your end goals the best.

Hope this helps!

Shane

Thumbs up

You can not go wrong with Michelin Super Sport tires, I got those on the back of my car, and are much better than my previous stock pirellis. But pricey $. You get what you paid for.
Those are the one's that come stock in the Ferrari 458 Italia, that is a great handling car.
