lol well I did drive like a bit of a dick on that set, but the condition of the roads and my alignment probably worsened matters, plus it was the summer and I live in malibu. I might have to try a set of RS2 though, I think these G-force sports are making the car feel kind of sloppy.

Thumbs up

I'm glad to hear someone talking good about these. Its about time. Seems like a lot of people only like the falkens, which aren't the best tire around in my opinion. But the NT01's are awesome my good friend has them on his modded evo, he's put about 1000 miles on them and they hardly look warn. R compound IS where its at. And these nitto's are a good combo of price and traction

If I were streeting them all the time, I'd probably do RA-1s, just for the added tread depth. These have the benefit of being able to handle track use without shaving, though, whereas the RA-1s like to be shaved to 4/32nds first.

Yeah, the NT01s have been THE tires for Mitsu Evo guys since the beginning.

The price scares me though.

$112 a tire shipped didn't scare me. I wouldn't have bought them if they hadn't been on sale.
