Default nitto nt555 g2 and other choices

anyone run these tires on either MS6 or MS3? doing a google/youtube search nets them particularly on RWD cars such as camaro, charger, mustang, etc but were wondering what they would be like on our cars.

background on my car, stock suspension for now, just picked up some rx8 wheels to run for summer duty.

I was thinking it was between Nitto NT555 G2, Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 or Sumitomo HTR ZIII. looking to spend no more then $750ish for a set and have both good wet and dry traction

I was in the same boat for a set 9f summer tires for rims i just purchased. I did not want to spend more then 160 a tire.I just picked up a set of conti extreme contact sports due to there wet traction reviews the nitto. Hopefully mounting them tommorow. Michelin pilot sport 4 is a better tire but its 200 a pop. Dont have much Experience with the others.

had experience with federal 595 rs-rr over all better fgrip than nt05 but treadware is terrible, and if you dont have exhaust then road noise is loud
but grip is really good barely spins at 3rd gear

I was running Continental Extreme Contact DWS06. I liked the grip and wet traction.

I switched to a set of Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 and its like night and day. Wet traction is surprisingly good. AWD helps.

But the dry traction is amazing. Way better than the Conti's. Those felt like sponges compared to the Hankooks. I commute over a twisty mountain highway and these tires have much less sidewall flex. They just feel planted mid corner and I cant seem to break them loose. Which is a good thing!

awesome! thank you guys for the replies, now I'm just in a dilemma for size, i got some rx8 18" wheels, I'm thinking about 225/45. the wheels have junk tires of that size but it seems like that would fit very well under the car. I am at stock hight right now but planning a suspension overhall next summer if not sooner, lowest I'd go is 1-1.5" lower then stock.

Those will fit just fine. I'd stick with the 45 sidewall if your roads are rough.
