Looking at new tires

After doing some shopping for new rubber for my 95 I'm wondering if anyone has run the Nitto NT 555's on their Vette. At $600 for the set it's almost half what the Michelin Pilot's are. Just lookin' for feedback. I don't mind spending the extra $$$ if there is a big difference. I never drive her in anything but pristine conditions, so wet traction is not important. Thanks!

I am looking as well. There are a lot of tire reviews on the net, google Tire Rack or
1010tires.
Some of the more expensive ones seem to be noisy, from what I've read it seems the Hankooks are a good choice at a reasonable price.

Good Luck

Thanks Dave. Yeah, I've read so many reviews I think it confussed me more than when I uninformed. I thought I would get some input from Vette owners since that's what I'll put them on. I've been looking at old posts and so far it sounds like those that run the Nitto's like them. I'll keep reading. Good luck in your search!

I went with the Hankooks, so far so good, significantly stickier and quieter that the tires I had on it prior.
