These Nitto Tires were just what I needed. I went from spinning so bad I was not able to keep from going off the road if I did not get off the gas. Now it really hooks up.

Great for summer but forget winter they could even crack if you use them when it's too cold plus you have to take the weight off if you are not going to drive for extended periods like the look and the width

I put these tires on Dodge Charger Hellcat and for the first time l didn't have the rear end slide all over the place when l hit the gas it is the perfect summer tire for hot rods

Very happy with these. Was a little concerned that I got stock size but HUGE difference over stock Pirrellis. Used to do nothing but spin anywhere up to 60 mph with just a little squeeze on the gas pedal. Now it hooks and books at almost any speed. Will still spin from a dig but haven't tried heating em up first. Not sure any tire will hook from a dig. Ride is great and they are surprisingly quiet. Recommended for sure

I have these tires on my 2011 Camaro SS with 835 horsepower and they make a great difference and really put the horsepower to the pavement

I have not mounted the tires on the wheels because the wheels are getting polished, however the design looks amazing and the compound feels nice and sticky so I'm sure its going to provide good traction but most importantly I want to express my gratitude to the Simpletire team for their support, great costumer service and awesome delivery time, it was a real pleasure doing business with you guys.
