Bummer on the ZII's. They're honestly my favorite tire to date right now. My Conti's are on 17" wheels currently. Do they not go up to a large enough size (315's) for your rears? Nitto makes a great tire, don't get me wrong. I think you'll be happy with them and since I mostly drove my NT05's on the track, I really brought them to their limit. I wouldn't recommend Hoosiers for street driving so Nitto should be fine. You can always change it up and do more research on other brands if you don't like them. I started out with tires per recommendations and have changed/altered it each time I'm up to buy new tires.

Luccia this is the Hoosier i was looking into,i got really excited about all the comments that people were making about the grip level this tire gives,i also like the agressive look,and then i looked at the price and thought do i really want to spend 3 bills per tire.Maybe..

Ah! Thinking Hoosiers here as in full on slicks! Did you know that Continental acquired Hoosier Racing Tire Corp a few months ago? Continental Acquires Hoosier Racing Tire Corporation | Continental. Anyways, tire rack has them for $258 a tire: CLICK HERE. Lots of red flags about not intended for street driving (treadwear is 60) so not sure I'd run them. You'll also probably not get a lot of use out of them. Read the reviews at that link. Someone said they're pretty dang noisy as well.

I read that they were noisy and wouldnt get alot of use out of them but the good news is that they stick like no other tire that i have searched as far as grip level and that is really what i look for in a tire.Thanks

I don't know, your post was grammatically ambiguous.

I drive a single car about 14K miles a year. Can't justify a 60K mile tire, even if I didn't have a staggered setup.
No mention of a 930, nowhwere. none. That's not ambiguous.

I wouldn't do that... Have you ever used a Hoosier Rain? If you drive them on dry pavement, especially at highway speeds, you will destroy them in about 200 miles. Serious. They aren't meant for dry pavement at all.

If you really want aggressive grip in a 17" tire then get a set of NT01's size 255/315 combo. You'll spend about $1000 for a set and they are pretty fantastic in anything dry. I wouldn't recommend them on wet pavement. I would expect 5000 miles from them normal driving at best. Fronts will last longer but rears will be done pretty quick. But, for extreme grip they are the closest thing you'll get to moving to a real slick.

The NT05 is a good all-around tire. It offers 70% of the traction of a NT01 at similar price but will hold up substantially longer. With that to say, I can spin them in rolling into boost in 1st, 2nd and 3rd but they are great tires.

- Chris.

The Nitto Motivo is an all-season tire I can vouch for and it's probably available in every size the NT series is. Running a staggered setup you might get 20K miles out of them.

I have had great luck out of the sumitomo HRTZ 3 ultra high performance tire. You can't beat them for the price.

Chris i will be taking your advice on not purchacing the hoosiers for some reason i thought they were a all season tire &thought they looked cool.I also think that if your car had a 6 speed box in your car you would be able to spin the tires in every gear with all that you have done to your motor,i am seriously jealous.There is a saying in the car world ,speed cost money how fast do you want to go& aparently for you its real fast...sooo cool

I'm about to buy some tires in the next couple weeks. I just want to confirm, all the chatter above about NT05's is in fact about the NT05 and not the NT05R? Correct?

I have NT05's on my car. The NT05R is a drag radial and only has a treadwear rating of 00. It is met for 1/4 mile runs. The NT05 street tire has a treadwear rating of 140 for the W speed rated tires. Hopefully my 315/35 x 17 rears will go 5000+ miles.

I keep saying to look at the Motivo for a daily driver/weekend car. Lasts a lot longer too.

I want a good tire that I can use on the street but I put most mileage on the car doing track events, driving to and from. So I figured the NT05 would be my best Nitto option in non R compound.

yes, a motivo isn't a track tire. It's a street tire. like what the subject of the thread is asking about.

Here's the Continental Tire's latest; Extreme Contact Sport....I wonder how it is in the rain? Looks very much like a dry tire.
