i blew these off at 485 whp..

it may have been an alignment issue, but my alignment done when I put the nt05R's on wasnt far off.

Pirell P-Zero, 305's on a 20X11 wheel, they offer 2 threadwears in that size, a 160 and a 220. Ones a Porsche spec tire and I think the other is a Lambo spec. Both do well in warm weather, not so good below 70 degrees.

I hope so! I have some PSS's on order. Wrapping them around Forgestar F14's. 275/295, 10" wheel up front, 11" on the rear. Supposedly, the Michelins run wide.

The P-zeros just aren't cutting it...

Nitto 555R's have been excellent for me. Can I break them loose? If I try or do it in a turn or power brake the car. But off the line they grab. I just raced a Z06 and off the line I smoked him. We also race with a guy running a Maggie SC and he's ran a 10.98, on Nitto 555R's with 20" factory wheels. Yes, it's true.

Got these too! I like them! Hook well when they're warm, run quiet as anything on the highway, great when you get caught in rain. 560 rwhp. They're spendy so I don't go around doing holeshots burning them off.

So were you going to write up your tips? Just curious now your tips compare to others.
