Those Nitto's are some great tires... I'd say the Goodyear F1, BFGoodrich KDW and KD are also great.

The Nitto's are a great tire better than those douglas. I would think about buying them for my next set of tires.

I love nitto 555r's on the street, even more so I like my MT Et Street Radials at the track. No fun on the street if there is any rain plus they wear out way too fast, but for just track use they are wicked. My next set to go on the draglites I think will be a set of normal ET Streets (the bias-ply's) just to see what kind of fun I can have :evillol:.

I love my NT555r's too, theyre awesome on a warm day but as with most racing tires they dont do well with rain or cold weather, I have no complaints with BFG's g-force radials either they just look like massive doughnuts
