View Full Version : Tires Question

10-21-2002, 09:27 AM
You seem to have a wealth of knowledge so this question is for you but if anyone else would like to respond that would be great too. I have just standard spec tires with Z rated trend and 140 to 150 mph limitations. I am looking for a set of tires that will be good for strip racing but also will be a good daily driving tire that will last a while. Any suggestions?

By the way, l live in Charlotte NC. My car is up on blocks right now so I can install some mods.

Ever since my first set of nitto 555 extreme ZR's, I am a nitto convert for life. I beat the living CRAP out of my last set and they lasted 20,000 miles. They hook well, they are quiet, and they have moderate rain control. Another friend of mine had them on his blown 92 lx...lasted 42,000 miles!

Go to discount tire direct (www.discounttiredirect.com) for the best deal on Nitto tires.

If you want real hardcore traction at the expense of weather control, go with the Nitto 555r's. They hook really well and cost $150 a tire for 275/40R17.

my 0.02 is spent
