Can't find nitto's 555r

Looking for some 555r's I've found 555's 235/50/18. But I've been seeing a lot of bad reviews on the 555. What are some tire sizes I can go to instead of the stock size? (Just a street racing car)

265/50/18 would be as wide as I would go on a 8.5

They have the regular 555's in that size. I do not recomend the 555r if it's your daily.

Check out the mickey Thompson street comps a lot better than the 555's

I just picked up some 18x9 and 18x10 staggered matte black American Racing rims and I put the stock Pirelli's up front, and I put for 305/35/18's Nitto 555R's on the rear. I've run 2 sets of the 555R's, the other on my Mopar truck. I've also run MT's, I like them both. I've found the 555R's to be a bit easier to use if wet weather happens and they seem to last a bit longer. American Muscle had the Nitto's in stock. Good luck with your selection.

i have the 555r 305/35/20 and they handle on wet weather as good as any other tire. and they hook up good especially when warmed up. and theyre good up to 15k miles supposedly. mt would be the better choice if on dry weather but they only last about 5k. the tread on the mt looks good for wet weather but ive been told its slips easily.

i do not know. i have xpipe, cat deletes, cat back, intake and bama tune. car would spin 1st and/or 2nd really easily. now it hooks great. i think though they also start getting pretty useless (the 555r) over 450 whp.

I'm making 560whp and the 305/35/20 555r does pretty well. The MT and nitto are both good.

The NTo5r are good and the mickey street radials are. The 555r are good for a bolton on car but are not impressive at all with more

It will be a big difference. Just don't get caught in the rain with the NTo5r
