Nitto tires for the beamer

1955 36
Does anyone have Nitto NT555 Extreme ZR tires on their beamer? If so, how do you like them?

On paper, the Nittos seems pretty good as far as threadwear, handling, preformance, etc.

I would love to hear of some first hand experience.

I don't think Nitto makes motorcycle tires.
I always thought Nitto is what you put on R*ced out Honda's or factory Neons, like Futuras from Pepboys.

For good all around street tire, you might want to try something like a ContinentalSportsContact or a Sumitomo HTZ-IIs. They're marginally more expensive but will probably give you a lot more grip for your money.

By the way, it's spelled "bimmer", not "beamer"...Beemers are motorcycles. Just making sure you know the proper nomenclature around here.
Thanks for the correction SACK, oops.........

I meant HACK! Dam, you are smart, WOW! You know the different between Beemer and Bimmer - good job, kid.

FYI:
Nittos have just as good rating as Contenential.

What proof do you have that Nitto are trash? Have you ever own a set of Nitto? That is exactly what I thought.

Seems like you are just blowing a bunch of $H$* to boost your number of post.

Someone put something in this fool's mouth because my zipper is stuck!

Uh-oh you hit the HACK button! :rolleyes:

Choices in the 19" range are pretty slim. New pirelli nero is out, but I haven't heard any first hand experiences. Based on reviews of the rosso and p7000 I wouldn't buy them. I'd stick to the Toyo T1-S if you can afford it. Lot of people have run the Nt555 without complaint, but they've never given me much analysis leading me to believe they just wanted the cheapest tire for show they could put on.

I went with the new Contisport Contact 2 and absolutely love them. Best tire I've ever bought. But lets see if I'm still saying that in another 10k miles. :dunno:
Nito 555 extremes suck. I have them on my car now. 1st gear is useless on anything more than part throttle. I've heard that the Kumho's 712's even grip better than the Nittos.

OTOH, their drag radials are excellent I hear
I agree, I have the Nitto 555s on my car because that is the tire combo they sell with my ACS type 2s..
they are OK tires both in dry and wet road conditions.
However, they are not bad for 225/40-18 tires under $150

why do they suck. Everyone that said that they suck does not give a legit reason as to why they suck.
They simply can't grip in the dry and wet when I want to push my car. The road noise is rather loud, too.
xs3x,

If you want to push your car, then you should have gotten an M3 not a 330. How do you expect to push a 225HP car. What do you want to push it to? Are you trying to race everyone at the red-lights using a 330? That is just sick! Pick on someone your own size - like a c-vett.

Also, I sure as hell hope you don't peel-out on the wet road and try to race people because you will end up in the ditch.

It should grip just as good as most of the other tires. The traction is rated as the same.

Also, do you ride on the HWY with your windows down that makes the road-noise such a big deal? Hell, most of the time my music is loud and I am jamming - not listening to my dam tires.
