Can't step into the throttle of my ride with stock 275/40x17 Tires out back. These Nitto 555R's on the OEM WS6 Speedline Aluminum Wheels on the Rear of my '01 Formula (406 RWHP on Mustang Dyno) wear twice as good as BFG's, and Hook well at the Track with a little longer time in the burnout box. Best bang for the buck, and tho I have Traction Control, it's the only worthwhile DR to feel confident on a daily Driver that may get caught in the rain suddenly, while at highway speeds.

Tire has a soft sidewall, which can be expected in a drag radial. Makes for sloppy cornering compared to the OEM tires. Fairly good traction at the drag strip. It also seems to run a bit narrow for the 245 section width compared to other 245 size tires.
