Nitto 555G2 Long Term Testing

Nitto 555G2 Summer UHP review. 500 mile report.

I was lucky enough to be selected to test the new Nitto 555G2 Summer Ultra High Performance tires.

I received the tires and installed them April 29, 2016 and have put just over 500 miles on them now. The size is 255-45x18, just a little different from the stock 235-50x18 and the small difference in size has little effect on the speedometer. The extra width of the tire though looks great from the back of the car!

These are at least as quiet on the road as my Nitto Motivo were. That set has 7/32 or 8/32 of tread so that set may have a little more road noise. The ride is very smooth. First thing I noticed, the car handles like it is on rails. Definitely better handling than before. Dodging potholes, or having to make a quick turn, the car moves right away.

I had a chance to try them in the rain and grip was still very good. Hit the accelerator getting on the highway and firm, crisp, shifts with no noticeable tire spinning.

So far I am very pleased with this set of tires. During the next review period I hope to get a chance to try them out at the drag strip to see how they do on a pass there.

Tires were supplied by Nitto Tire U. S. A. Inc.
