Hi guys....I just sold a set of 225/50/vr16 nitto 450's so that i could get a new set. I want to get 205/45/zr16's. The 3 tires that i am looking at are the yokohama paradas, nitto 450(which i already had), and the nitto 555. What are your opinions on these tires or what would you recommend? Thanks

I love my Futura GXT's. 225/50/16. I love them. Check out your local Pep Boys. Got mine for $280 but you can get them for $380.

me no like nitto

i had nt450s and i thought they were so-so while i did. they wore out VERY fast and got ALRIGHT grip (they were225/50/15 on the stock 15s). wet was good but they didnt grip that well in the dry. i now have Sumitomo HTR-Z2s and i'm VERY happy with them. MUCH grippier than the nittos. ESPECIALLY in the dry. and a noticeable amount nicer in wet. crappy in snow and ice. but they heat up nice, very grippy in the turns and on straights. and even after 6 months of use there is ZERO sign of wear. i didnt even rotate em yet! :D

just my $.02
hope it helps :D
