    Size 305/35/R20, rim 20x10, M6 stock.
    Usage, occasionally for track and some street time, probably change back to stock for most street driving.
    Nitto 555R are around $578/pr shipped, M/T $734 shipped. Not sure if the M/T's are worth the extra coin.

    Any input from experience with each would be appreciated.

    Lot of threads about DRs so you might try searching...you are going to get a lot of IMO posts....my experience with Nitto and MT is the MTs are much better and produced better 60' times...my IMO..

    A8 305/35/20 on 20 x 10 replica wheels with 20 lbs of air at house before I left for track-you will have a tougher time off the line but should be able to run a low 11 sec. in good air with a decently prepped track. I run at ATCO NJ very good track prep-walked her out with light throttle and a slow steady push to the floor-in sport trans and traction, street suspension.

    Nitto is an older design/compound and they sell more tires at that price point. The mickeys are stickier for sure and require a smaller burnout=more passes before worn out so $ will end up pretty equal-both will be within a tenth or 2-but the 60 foot will go to the Mickeys...
