If you want stick at the track, go for BFG. If you want more mileage on the street, go Nitto.

I've always said,

You can hook better in a car wash with the BFG's, than you can with Nitto's on dry pavement.

That being said, the BFG's do wear out much quicker.

How much quicker are we talking? I only drive it about 800 miles a month, maybe 1000 at most.

Can I get an honest 5-6 months out of them? If so, Im sold. 300 bux every 5-6 months aint bad.:cool:

I like the Nittos, not because they are THE best biting tire, because they are not, but because my car IS a street car and they seem to be safer to drive around and I don't have to switch out tires to go to the track. Mine are getting broken in now, after about 1500 miles on them, and work well with MY combo.

Fair street tire. Breaks free in the corners too easily. Great starting and straight line traction. Terrible at high speeds on highways and on surface streets. Excessive sidewall flex turns freeway lane changes into exercises in rear-end recoveries. I only came to appreciate the F1s as an all-around performer after spirited experiences with the NT-555Rs. A set of four Goodyears are on order as the Nittos will be relegated to the garage for eventual strip use.
