Nitto 555 drag radial on ZL-1

just put a set of nitto 555's on the back of my ZL-1 and im amazed how much better they grip than the goodyears! havent tried in the rain yet though.

Im thinking this is a must do... Looks Great.

How is the handling in corners? Do you feel any difference from the goodyears? Drag radial should have more flex in the sidewall, but not sure if you can feel it or not.

i havent been doing alot of cornering yet as my fronts need replaced too. they seem way quieter than the goodyears though.

Fyi.. they make a 555 r ( I think thats what its designated) that is a road race version of the same tire.. the 555 drag is not on par with say a m/t but if aired up handles great.. some guys were actually running these on road courses until they released the track version. .. I think the only diff i s sidewall stiffness. .

Great tires for great prices

That is a great price. Sounds like the way to go once I waste the Goodyears!

Nice tire for ride and performance is decent. Don't expect much for mileage. Mine only lasted about 5000 miles. And I am easy on my car. May have a little to do with the Hot weather here in LA.
