In Reply to: anyone tried nitto nt-555 posted by jayson on October 10, 1999 at 01:46:16:

I di not like them for the only reason that under hard loads the fished around a bit...they are not solid like the pilots...they ride great and are low noise, but not the greatest when you are blowing through a 50 mph sweeper at 100. Too sqwirmy....
On the other hand, I just bought to Yoko AVS Sports. I LOVE these tires as they are VERY predictable. When they start to break, it is slow and easy...not like being suddenly "on ice" like the Pilots. I also hear they are far better in the rain than Pilots, but haven't had the chance to try them in the rain yet...

I will buy these ties 100 bucks cheaper than pilots, they are just the same in the dry in traction IMHO, but are more predictable, quiet, and comfortable...Tim

: does anyone have any experience with nitto nt-555 tires? i wanted to get michelins, but the shop where i'm getting the tires from told me to look into the nittos...i always assumed nittos to be inferior to the michelin mxxx3, but the salesman said that they are just as good...any experiences would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance...
