Nittos are good in my opinion but they need a good warm up/burn out. Good luck I'm debating about the cam now haha it never ends.

Yea they are a nice tire. Mine like to be at ~16 lbs when launching at the track.

I use the Nitto DR's as a street tire.
I get about 3 summers on a set.


I use something else for the track though.

The 555R 315s hook much better than my 275 BFGs did and also work well for cornering.
