I got a set of 315's and put them on mine with 11 miles on the clock. Night and day difference from the zero all weather's!
No argument there, just saying changing the Pirelli's to virtually any tire is an improvement, Nittos & MT's are a huge improvement.The 555R2s are WAY better than anything you can buy for the street. The stock Pirelli's suck too, but it takes nothing away from the Nitto's.
I haven't heard of those. Goodyear has many high performance tires though, but often in oddball sizes.No argument there, just saying changing the Pirelli's to virtually any tire is an improvement, Nittos & MT's are a huge improvement.
On a side note one guy was suggesting the Goodyear's the Sheriffs departments uses, not sure what model it is.
How do the 555R2's compare to the NTO5R's? I have a '21 SS and I am trying to figure out what to get after the factory tires are done.
That's what concerned me. I do a decent amount of track days, and unfortunately we've been stuck in the rain a lot. I have watched all the "high end" cars with the Sport Cups sliding all over the place; particularly on the front.The Nittos are good but its pretty tough to beat the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for daily street driving. They probably don't hook up quite as good as the Nittos but it is a very small difference and the wet traction on the PS4s plus the extended mileage you get out of them made the choice easier. Like many have said, ANYTHING made by Michelin, Continental, or Nitto is light years better than the Pirellis, it doesn't matter whether it is the factory Pirelli Summer tires or all seasons, they both suck equally. My first Hellcat ('18) had the factory summer pirellis and I swapped to a Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 all-season and they were so much better than the factory Pirelli summer tires it felt like a completely different car.
If you do track days I would go with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires. They have been tested by every tire review known to man and come out on top every time. The Nittos might hook better in dry weather in a straight line, but the Michelins will outperform them in every other category, and certainly in the rain.That's what concerned me.
