Tire Advice

Recommended Posts

Looking for best traction for street/strip/road course. May get caught in rain occassionly but not my daily driver. Gonna put 275/35/20 up front, 315/35/20 in rear - or something close to that depending on tire availability. Was leaning on nitto nto5s up front and nto5rs in rear. Good setup? Any suggestions?

I auto cross my 2010 GT500 and went from the factory 19 inch wheel to a 18 inch wheel and I track it some and run the Hoosier 335/30/18 on all four corners.

Ditto on the Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I run 275/35-20's all around. Should have gone 295/30 on the rear (10" wide rims on the rear and 9" on the front).

No rubbing issues at all.

Are the Michelin's good for drag racing and the NT05R's for handling?

Actually, I think, the reverse would be true. Michelins for handling, Nitto NT05R for drag racing.

Exactly, that's why I'm asking because of the above comments.

Michelin Sport Cup 2s 285 35 19 on a 19x9.5 wheel all the way around. Decent street performance, acceptable drag use and great for the road course
