Tire Pros

Aggressive looks and dry traction

Tire Cons

None

Only about 250 miles so far but these are much better than the Michelins they replaced. Smooth and controlled. Love them and DTD is the best. 3 sets of tires from them so far, all great.

Tire Pros

Great tire for the money.

Tire Cons

None so far.

The Nitto 555 replaced my 13 year old BF Goodrich tires that looked like new on my 1994 Corvette. I could tell the difference with the Nitto's as soon as I got on the road. No issues yet. I think these are a great value considering I only drive the car in the summer and they will need to be replace due to age rather than wear. Discount tire guys were really great. They took great caution when raising my car and extra care with not scratching any of my wheels. Great experience and would recommend them for any tire purchase.

Tire Pros

Price point and free shipping

Been researching brands for my 1993 Corvette. The Nitto 555 offered many aspects and a soft compound for great traction and ride comfort. Under spirited acceleration and handling - it has surprised many of my passengers with its capacities holding to the road. Definitely an attractive tire regarding a consumer's attention.

Tire Pros

Improved ride and handling

Tire Cons

None Provided

I purchased our 1996 corvette last fall. Knowing the tires were at least 10 years old, I wanted to make a change. The Nitto Extremes were highly recommend by the corvette family. Although early, the Nittos significantly improved the ride comfort, the highway noise and the handling. Great tire at a great price. Let me add that the install was completed at my local Discount tire store. They did a great job! Super friendly and professional. I will be using them on all tire related issues.

Tire Pros

Quiet, great dry handling (not tried them in wet yet). Car feels very planted at all speeds and in high speed cornering. Great price.

Tire Cons

They will flat spot when not used for a week.

My 95 Vette handles much better now with the Nittos. Previously I had Kuhmo Exta tires that were fairly loud and the ride was harsh. I chalked that up to the fact they were High Performance tires. However, the Nitto's are better performers and are much quieter. Combined with installing new KYB shocks a week later the Vette rides and handles like a much better different car. I would recommend them!!!!
