Nitto 555 g2 VS. Michelin PS4S

Hi, I'm looking at purchasing new rim & tires soon. Trying to get some input on which tire is a better riding & performing tire. Car really won't be tracked & not a DD.
Thanks

2 completely different tires. The Michelin PS4S is the best tire on the market right now for a ultra high performance application, the Nitto 555 G2 isn't even in the same realm of performance.

The only other tire close to the MP4S is the Continental Extreme Contact Sport which is it's direct competitor.

Get the PS4s and thank yourself every time you drive the car.

Like mentioned above, night and day difference. The Michelin's are a whole different league. Nitto is basically a cheaper, low budget performance tire, same with Toyo, which I believe is the same company put of Japan.

Go with the Michelin's, they can be had for a good price as well.

I love my g2s, they hook decently and so far I've had good wear. Price wise I think they are a good deal. I run the 295-35 on the rear and 275-35's on the front.

Cheap low budget?? Sort of like lionhart, thunderer, Achilles.. where they are like $75 each? C'mon what kind of statement is that SMH.

I had Nitro invos in the past and they are fine tires. NT05 and NT01 are very fine drags radials as well. Nitro 555G2 are quality tires, not as good as PS4's but quality. And guess what, they are not cheap whatsoever.

Have you had any of those Nitto tires before? I highly doubted

I've had plenty of Nitto tires as I currently run them on my truck. I still stand by my comment, Nitto isn't even in the same league as the Michelin PS4S or the Continental Extreme Contact Sport, or even the Bridgestone Potenza RE071r Pole Position tires.

Those tires lead the market in wear, performance and handling in ways that Nitto will not be able to touch without completely redesigning their tire lineup.

The new Continental Sport tires are smooth as silk. I'm still breaking them in so I haven't "pushed" them yet. I would count them in on your next purchase for sure.

IMO Nitto is upper-middle of the road.

I’m considering these for street use only as I use my nt01’s for track duty. I’m sure it’d be fine.

Michelins all the way. No comparison IMO. Love mine. I think I would chose the Firestones over those Nittos, and the Firestones are a great lower cost alternative.
