I ran the NT555's on a couple of my cars. Rode nice, worked decent in rain too. On my cars/trucks it wouldn't hook though I was running them at normal street pressure. But instead of fishtailing back and forth I went straight, and definitely better traction than a normal premium street tire. Definitely made spirited driving less twitchy.

I'm also running the 555's on my 70 RS. Not as sticky as the RII, but they wear great and do everything I ask of them on the street.

I've been running the Nitto NT-05 for a few years now and really like the way the car grips on corners.Pretty good traction for what it's worth and a good ride.Don't find them noisy at all. 245-40-18 / 274-40-18 setup.I know you were asking about a different tire but it's the same company I guess.
