    Looked at the wider 305's and they looked great too . My tire guy said because of the rim size the contact patch would be almost identical as the 275 so I went that route .

    I agree, just received a set of 11" wide wheels for my 305/35's. Proudly rolled them out of the garage, loaded up to get mounted next week. I had them on the 9.5" rims last year right after I got the car and yes the contact patch is pathetic. They do work better!

    What is your feedback on the tire?
    What is your feedback on the tire? I ran NITTO' on my SRT 8 (the motivo at that!) I thought it was a great tire.

    It was cold here today only reaching 50 deg.. Early about 40 deg a bit slick driving !! Later as the sun warmed the roads they became much better . When it gets real nice here in upstate ny in my opinion these tires will be far superior to the p-zero I will keep you posted .

    Much appreciated. You did something with the Nittos that's a bit different in terms of he 275s whereas others are going 305 on the stock rims. Your feedback is of interest especially in light of your tire guy's comments about 305s on stock rims.

    Once you change wheels and tires it's a whole new cost structure. So please do update when it warms a bit. Thank you.

    LOLOL! I read your response and thought "my gosh he posted this last Aug and has driven on them yet?" Then realized I was looking at your join date...Keep us posted! I agree with BD2DBONE. Great insight on running the stock size.

    Where did you buy your Nitto's and how much were they? Did you replace all 4, or just the rears? Thanks!

    Well guys it's still to damn cold here in upstate NY 55 deg and sunny today and the tires do NOT hook in the cold . I took them off so I don't kill them before the real nice weather. Question for you drag radial guy at what temps do you think is ideal for these things ?
    Thanks

    Just put my 555Rs on this weekend (305s). I find that once warmed up, they hook waaaay better than the stock Pirellis. But then again, I'm here in San Diego and the 75 degree temps definitely help. 32 PSI, by the way.
