I have 18" Nitto NT555 Extremes in my C320. They are relatively quiet and they provide ok grip on dry. But on wet their grip sideways is not very good. And when it is really pouring rain, they tend to aquaplane. Something that happens practically never with my SLKs Toyo Proxes T1S.430 - 2/21/2005 9:34 PM
Has anyone tried the Nitto NT555's?
Yes, the grip is OK, but not excellent. The rubber seems to be not very soft, because they are not wearing out very quickly. But this can be noticed on the grip too. You can make them slip if you drive in an aggressive way, even on dry Texas roads.430 - 2/24/2005 12:34 PM
Thanks for the responses. I was thinking that the NT555's were almost like a drag radial. But if they just give OK grip in the dry I am very mistaken.
