I've had nittos Hoosier and MT's between the three I'd place Nitto at the back of the line. Not saying they can't get the job done just saying there are much better options out there. Hell a federal rsrr would probably hook as well as an nto5r at half the price.

Is this from a primarily racing stand point? Or all around street/strip drag radial perspective? I hate when I hear of guys hydroplaning on some of those DR's. But not everyone uses their car normally so in rain isn't really a problem for them.

I've always used a rain worthy dr on my camaro. Either nitto or m&h do fine in the rain.

I am saying from a drap strip perspective. Nittos work fine on the street but like I was saying you can pick up Federal RS-RR for relatively cheap and get the same results. As you can imagine living here Ive driven both Nittos and MT's daily in the rain never once had a hydroplane issue its just one of those things got to pay attention and take it slow.

True. In my experience there was just no need to go past the 555r. On the track, just doing a good burnout, they stick like glue. But my car is just a slow pos anyway. A summer radial would prolly hook. Lol. As said we all have different combos & so on.

Larrys car runs strong.

I've never had any experience with the 555r always ran the NT05R and you car definitely ain't slow just need to take it down to BMR and do some suspension lol

I have had them all except Hoosier and I don't like MT on the street. They only hook for a short time then feather and they ride like ****. Nitto 555r , Toyo TQ , or R888(best) is a much better street tire option imo.

Didn't your notch 60' in 1.8s? You could probably just use a good summer tire and let some air out for those short times. Probably don't even need to do a burnout.

I've got the 555r in a 285/15" rim and unless I do a short burnout to get them warmed up a little, they spin like nuts. They're in great shape so I'll stick with them but I will be looking for R888s or so for my next street tire.

Just what's on it. Not like it's a race car.

I've used r compounds on the street and track. They typically aren't as good as a dr.

I've never tried at the track. It's just a leisurely stroll.

Full try mode I'd be 11.4s easy. Super max full try mode with ice, slicks, 2 step, Hio tears mixed with my gas to prevent detonation, probs 11.2.

The % of try has to match the result.
It helps bandaid hurt feels when cars with massive power run **** times. It's science.

Yah but if they are not being stored in climate control garage 6 to 8yrs is going to make em worthless lol dry rot and pitted only good for a burnout at that point.

Could be you weren't trying against marc either. Kinda looked like you were in neutral
