    I absolutely LOVED these tires on my speed 6 I had. Road noise was a little louder than others, but I never had an issue with traction. You will enjoy!

    I ran 2 sets of those. They were pretty good. But I found one better, with a much better ride.

    Nitto NT 420's. Very grippy & about $600 cheaper. I was able to get 60,000 miles out of the Gforce, And was able to get 75,000 miles out of the Nittos. I always get my tires with lifetime balance & rotate. And I rotate every 10,000 miles. I recently bought my 2nd set of Nittos. Paid $750 for four OTD. I was paying $1300 for the Gforce tires.

    Ok. Nitto 555s are good tires but not that sticky. The KDWs are not that great of traction either. I ended up taking them off and are sitting in my warehouse at the moment with 40% tread left. They have been sitting there for almost 2 years. These tires are good for longevity. Nitto Invos stick much better than these 2 tires at topic. Also the Nitto NT05s are the shizzzit. Take my word on this. I buy tires on a quarterly basis.

    I am getting 75000 miles out of my nitto 420's with keeping them balanced & rotated. They are great tires & lower cost than the bfg gforce I was running. About half the price. Also has a very agressive tread for a street tire. Excellent wet & dry traction.
