How much do Nitto 555rs cost? Are they just for drag or just all around great daily driving tires?

just like any tire. u should be careful in the rain. lots of people in my town drive with nitto 55r daily. driving doesnt wear it out much. mostly the tread gets worn from burn outs and racing. as long as u keep the air pressure up for drving then it wont pop. make sure u drop it down for racing or it will be like any other tire. i drop mine down to like 20 psi when i run my car. mine still goes in the rain...but just safety issues be careful with them. dont drive 100 MPH and slam the breaks and expect it to stop.

IMO it all depends on what kind of driving you are doing. If you are just gunna be going slow then why get like a Parada which is definately designed for on track use. I like my FZ4's for street driving.

At least I don't have to pay a shit load of $$$ every year on new tires.:)

I have the Falken Ziex rite now on my GSR rims and they have a hard time grippin. Weird thing is the nitto450s that came with the GSR's performed better. I am gonna try out the Falken Azenis next.:D

Go for Kuhmos, they're cheap, grip well in wet/dry conditions - and they look decent.

Does that answer your question?

That does mine
"Just be careful"

Whats the point of buying something that does not perfrom, I dont want a product that I have to be carful with, just grip, that is what tires are for, the one fucking purpose, grip!
if hes wanting a good tire for all weather conditions then i would go with the kumhos. but for performance wise go with nitto 555r. i hadnt had any probelsm in the rain yet. but maybe its cuz they still have grip so i dont knoe. they handle good for me. as for normal tires i think kuhmos are great.

Kumho's have NO GRIP in the snow...its not an all-season tire..thats why i have stock rims on for the winter.
Yokohama Avid H4 is a good all-season performance tire..
