Tire Pros

Incredible dry traction, and pretty decent on wet roads as well.

Tire Cons

Not a great choice for snow/ice driving...

I bought these tires with my new wheels in June 2011, and I must say, compared to previous tires, this is in my top three. They offer superior dry handling, and do rather well in rain as well. Treadwear could be a little better, but considering my driving habits, its life expectancy is probably pretty reduced. The only negative I can really say stands out about this tire is the extremely poor snow traction/handling, (luckily I've only had to endure that once or twice while I had my truck in the shop) even with AWD. That being said, it should probably be stressed that the reason for that is the fact that it is a summer tire and not designed for snow. I'd definitely put this tire on my car again, and would certainly recommend it to any driver looking for superior highspeed handling and breakneck cornering.

Tire Pros

Dry roads it sticks like glue.

Tire Cons

Wet roads not so much.

Drove this mostly on highways and love the dry traction with this tire. Cornering is a blast on dry roads. Wet roads is a different story. Roads that are just wet it handles good. Roads with just a little standing water beware! As in just a little in the road grooves is enough to slide you over. Great summer dry tire and fun to drive.

Tire Pros

Great value, performance vs price

Tire Cons

None Provided

I also have these tires on a 2004 GTO and found they give good performance for the money. They are not the highest performing tires, but they offer predictable performance and good milage, I have over 20,000 miles on the Nittos on the GTO and at least another 10,000 left. These tires offer good value and a quiet ride. I will consider them again when the time comes.
