Which one is the most expensive, pain-in-the-arse option? That's the one you'll pick.All this to say one of two things need to happen:
1.I keep the drag radials, and swap out the worthless 7 year old Sumitumo’s for now.
2. I sell the drag radials, And buy a complete replacement set for the street tires in the form of Nitto 555r gen 2’s..
or….I buy the Nittos, throw away the Sumitomos, and keep the DR’s anyway..
i do not brag about the video cameras….I talk about how tragic the fact is that they’ll never see the light of day..Which one is the most expensive, pain-in-the-arse option? That's the one you'll pick.
When are we going to see evidence that this car actually runs, and/or that you have these video cameras you keep bragging about?
You guys that tune into the season after six of 12 episodes have already aired…….I tell ya.OPTION 4: Purchase the Nittos along with a pair of rear wheels to mount the drag radials.Take the 20 min to swap them on when the Viagra kicks in,Nittos back on a few hours later.
Keep the drag radials and swap them on the car when it's over 85 degrees and dry. Keep the tires you have for basic cruising and the burnout video you're about to make. By new nittos with the crowd funding site you create to replace said burnout tires. Not to mention the money you make from the YT upload.
Doohickey?Why don't you just unplug the doohickey you found disconnected 2 days ago. Then your rear end won't be stepping out anymore.
I appreciate the input. I looked at the NT05, and I agree with you, it appears to be the best in-between solution over a straight drag radial. It looks like getting caught in the rain with that tire might still be a little dicey if there’s a lot of water on the road, but in comparison to the huge bald center section my current drag radials have, I think they’ll be much safer.I'm currently running the NT555 G2,while a great tire I'm not sure they are what you think they are.At my modest power levels they do fine under normal driving conditions with some heat in the tires but anything over my current 380rwhp it would seem grip could certainly become an issue during spirited driving.Stepping up to the NT05 would give you "some" wet traction ability,quite a bit more than your current drag radials.
I just think at your power level the NT555 while grippier than the Sumitomos,would be somewhat of a sideways move.
