Re: I Need New Tires. Recommendations Please

I'm on 17s because tires are so much cheaper and I go thru a lot of tires.

A little update. I ended up with the Nt05's. They are really soft and quiet. Seem to hook pretty good for me. Don't seem like they will get very good mileage but I don't care since my car probably sees 800 miles a year or so. They'll probably be hard before I wear them out. Steering is very touchy now too. Gotta get used to it lol. I'm running 275/35/18 fronts and 295/35/18 rears. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5941e1e2...12_103048.jpg?

The word is "responsive" The steering is very "responsive". I think you will be quite happy.

Just curious, are those the 200 treadwear or the 140 treadwear versions?
Looking for a set myself to replace some worn out NT555R's.

The front 275s are 140 and the rear 295s are 200. Thats the only option that discount tire had. I asked them and they said that was the matching set for the staggered setup size I wanted. Maybe they don't make a 275/35/18 in a 200. I dunno. Drove them 60 miles this weekend. Still loving them. The only negative I noticed is that they pick up rocks and stuff more than the hard KDWs but that's a good tradeoff for me.

I've heard some manufactures "adjust" the treadwear rating in order to make a tire legal for certain classes. That might be why there's a difference in ratings.
