Nitto NT01

Anyone try these on a 5th gen yet. They recently released these 100 tread wear tires in 285/35zr20. Perfect match for the 1LE.

I ran NT05s before and loved them. They are terrible in the rain but great when its dry. I'm gonna try and run these 285/35R20 NT01s up front and NT555R in 305/35R20 out back.

Used to use Nt01's for road racing. Yes I highly recommend them, that's a good choice there... Buy 'em up!

I'm getting run the Nitto NTO1s on a road course this weekend. Anybody got an idea on a good pressure to start out with. My former R888s seems to like a little extra pressure on this particular coure (Inde Motorsports).

Thanks!

Just got updated pricing for 285 NT01s, shipped to me. Would get it by Wed. Almost $2k w/shipping

Going with R888s. Over $200 less. Same shipping time.

Expect big difference from NT05s.

Sadly, no. Auto-x, but speeds can get into the 50s. SM class is very competitve and can't stay close on street tires.
