Nitto NT555R2 Drag Radial
285/40-18
$335 each
Discount Tire Direct
I bought these to replace my set of NT555Rs which were getting low on depth in the middle of the tread. My impression so far is based mostly on the 1000 mile round trip we just made to the Spring Meet in Indiana:
Ride - great
Handling - very good
Noise - not bad except on concrete pavement
Dry traction - more than sufficient
Wet traction - freaking awesome! This turned out to be the most important aspect, since it rained on the way down, much of the time we were there, and nearly all the way back.
Overall, I’m very impressed and consider the R2 to be a definite step up from the R.

Running that on an 18*10? I'm hoping to get 305s on mine with fenders rolled, and like the reviews on these so far. Plus the fronts with a very similar tread is very appealing.

Yes, my rear wheels are 18”x10”, and the 285s just fit with rolled fender lips. I would be very surprised if you can make 305s fit, but good luck!
