Post New Nitto DRs
Anyone know anything about these? just say an ad on the back of one of the car mags. I assume they are trying to compete with MT?

Haven't heard anything on them yet, I do know that nitto & Goodyear are trying to compete with M/T. I would think that they will work well the old design I have work outstanding for me.

is it more of a race design, or more for the street?

Treadware rating = 00 :grin

555Rs = 100. I used to wear through a set every summer.

The NT05Rs seem to be getting good reviews. Seem to be a good competitor to the M/T drag radials.

Really? My 555Rs have lasted 5 years. Oh Wait, I haven't driven it in 5 year. :banghead

I got a year and a half out of mine so far. They look good on my car on jack stands.
