    Sorry totally missed 305 in post title haha. They looked very wide that's why I asked. You must have aftermarket rims

    stock rim...the 305 Nitto's are thinner(narrower) around the seal compared with the 305 Mickey Thompson's...and plenty of guys running the MT's on stock rims without issue...

    What made you go with the Nitto over the MT ET Street SS? I'm trying to decide between the two right now and it's about $70 more for the Nitto's.

    I've got both: the SS are on the Hellcat and the Nitto is on the Scat Pack.
    I went with the Nitto on the Scat Pack for 2 reasons; it works better in the rain than the SS and it's runs a bit more narrow so it works fine on a 9.5" wheel.
    Dry traction wise in a straight line the SS is better though.

    they are both amazing tires, you can't go wrong...If you are at the track a lot, I'd go with MT's...but if you use the car more as a DD, the Nitto's are better for cold & wet climates and won't wear quite as fast....

    Thank you for the input. I had MT ET Streets on an 11' 5.0 and on the highway it was a little floaty feeling which made for an uneasy DD. I was hoping the newer version of the MT's would be a little more DD friendly since they added better water channels, but my car is definitely more of a DD than a track car.

    Maybe i'll just go with the Nitto's. I had INVO's and NT05's in the past and didn't like either of them, so I'm hesitant to use them again, but it seems like the 555R's are pretty good tires.

    Do you have an aluminum driveshaft or stock? That's my only concern but the consensus is that if you're not taking it to the track with the DR's stick and warmed up then it's not really an issue on the street. Correct?

    I don't think you could twist it unless you are on a sticky track and/or have added power...dr's won't void warranty anyway...snap it if you can!
