If I had a ms6 then I wouldn't worry about DR, but since us ms3ers are fail wheel drive with good power, we need more then a street tire to put the power to the ground.

reviving old thread FWIW...

I have run Z1 Stars and they are have fairly good grip but quickly turn into a hockey puck.

I then went to Advan A048 [current tire] which are killer in the grip department since they are DOT R compound tires but I wore them out in 6 months and they are over 300 each. ouch!

I wanted to try the Hancook R-s3 but they are on national back order for 30-90 days in my size 235-40-18...and I am currently running slicks with the A048s..

sooooooo

I am gonna give the NT05s a try and see how they stand up...then try the Nt01 if that doesn't work...tired of buying expensive tires to only have them last 6 months lol

I have even adjusted my tune for reverse taper and hoping the combination of NT05 and that will give me a little more fun in 3rd gear

BTW.

anyone tried using performance snow tires? Like Mich pilot Pa3s I know a guy that's trying to talk me into those but I just don't think I can do it...haha

the nt-05s really are an awesome cheap tire. They are def not a drag radial, but in the turns, they do not disappoint.

Yeah thats the thing, my friend had the 555r's for 6 months and they looked like they had about 60% tread life left. And he went to the local track a couple of times and did a few burnouts. Which is hard for me not to go with these.

As soon as the weather clears up I'm going to try them out in the turns and report back. The V12s handled good but with the soft sidewall I didn't like them. Well see how these do.

ah sorry reading fail. the nt555r will be a huge better in a straight line, i would try to air them up a little higher, drag radials typically have a softer compound to go straight faster. In the turns it will roll over more.

the 555 is not, the 555r is

NT555R vs nitto 555http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt555

cheap street/autocross tire is nt05
http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt05

another drag radial is the nt05r (hint the r)
http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt05r

road course tire is nt01
http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt01

which also confuses me because i told him about the bfg ta drag radials, and he said he would be daily driving them and didnt want a drag radial, he wanted a street tire, (wonder if he has them on the back too?)

For a street tire it's fine, depends really on what your planning on doing. (drag, autocross, road course etc).

You talking about me? If so I never said I wanted a street tire. And I'm winning the handkooks v12s in the rear.

cuz i think your actually serious about not finding them
2006 MAZDA 6 tires - Nitto

they do not make a 215/45/18 in the 555, however they do make a
225/40
225/45
235/40

the closest to stock size is the 235/40 but is a tad wide for the factory 7 inch width rim. (can be done)
the next closest is the 225/45 which is a sminge taller then factory and bout half inch wider, if you have the clearance and are set on this specific tire then this is a viable option and lastly if you are worried about clearance the 225/40 will fit just fine and be a little wider yet shorter then the oem equipment. the only one of the 3 that are suggested on a 7 inch wheel is the 225/45 though.

there are fewer tires in the 215/45/18 range, a popular cheaper tire is the toyo proxes 4, somewhat sporty, and are all season tires. other popular one is the hankook ventus v12 summer tires.

like i stated earlier in this thread it really depends on what you are planning on using the tires for ie autocross, drag racing, daily driving, grocery getting, nascar
