Im getting a pair of Nt555R's in a 285-35/18 and putting them on a set of F14 forgestars. Should I run tall skinny's in back? Not talking like real skinny's but maybe some 205 low rolling resistence tires? Or would real skinny's be fine?

yea continental makes a great low RR tire. but maybe I'll just run my snow tire in back at the strip. they're low RR too.

I was thinking maybe I should run a low RR tire in back on the street too. how big of a handeling difference could it make? and gas ain't gettin any cheaper. I'll still run somthing nice up front.

I have Nitto 555r Extremes and when hot they are real sticky. 255/45/18 all the way around

Do you have the NT555r's on all 4? do you noitce the extra grip in back or does it not make a big difference? Do you run them on the street? If so, how are they?

I have Nitto NT555 extreme ZR on all four corners(stock size).They have been great tires but I'm gonna try the Falcons 452's 255/45-18 on a 8" rim ...

I run the Falcons in a 255/35/20 on a 9'' rim and they have been great. Only downside is they wore out quick but they're not too expensive so it's all relative. I think I paid about $110/tire uninstalled

The 555r Extremes are the summer tires. They are a cross between the Drag and regular tires. REAL STICKY when hot but doesn't sacrifice ride. GREAT on handling. Not loud at all.
