Anyone running Nitto 555 G2?


It looks like the only tire I can find in thesize to match the height of my fronts. (235/55/18) 28 tall Nittomakes a 295/45ZR18 112W XL that is real close to it. (Going to 10 wide wheels on the back)


Anyone running these do you like them are they fairlyquiet. How are these in the rain?

I've got the 555G2's on my fronts, with 555R's on the rear and really like the combination.
The G2's are 275 and the R's are 305.

I find them to run reasonably quiet, and seem to handle fine in the rain.

Nitto improved tread life with the 2nd generation version 555 and this model is typically lasting around 40K miles when not beat on too hard. This tire performs great all-around from what we're seeing.

Let us know if we can help you with a set.

Got 'em Love 'em. Had the Motivo's before the G2's, totally different in traction and handling. Running 245's front with 315's on rear for the 'old school' look. Got the raised white letters from Treadwear. Life is good. Wear seems to be on pair with anything else I've had on the "Flame" but with 15.5lbs. of boost underfoot rear's tend to take a beating but they are hanging in there. Hope this helps.

I have them on my summer setup which is on the car right now. 275/40/20 up front and 315/35/20 out back. Been great so far. This is year 2 with them still lots of tread although they are only on the car about 7-8 months of the year.

I put the 555 G2s on a few months back. I also went with 315 out back on widened WRT wheels(10.5") using a 5mm spacer. I find them to be quiet and they work/handle great in the rain. Now of course I don't do anything stupid when the ground is wet and they will break lose in the wet if you drive like it's dry. But over all I am very satisfied. I only have a few thousand miles so I can reply regarding the wear just yet. They definitely are not as sticky as NT05s, but I knew that was going to be the case.

Well I finely got this project done


295/45/18 Nitto 555G2’s on factory wheel widened to 10 inch.I went with a 30mm Adaptor to get the back spacing needed

I've had the G2s for about 4000 miles; 245/45-20 front and 275/40-20 rear on stock 9" rims. At first I hated them, they felt greasy, terrible turn-in and sloppy feeling in high-G turns. I almost traded them back to DiscountTire I was so disappointed. But I toughed it out and after about 150 miles they started behaving great.

They are very quiet over most surfaces, a high-pitched whine on certain concrete roads but it's rare. Good traction in the dry, especially braking and accelerating compared to stock RS-As. Yes the 6.4 can still brake them loose, they're not drag radials. They look good too, but they like some dressing on them. They do flatspot slightly overnight but than smooths out after a mile of driving.

Overall I'm quite happy with them.

I've had Nitto G2's on my car for a few weeks now. They are big improvement over the stock Pirelli's.

Noise-wise, they are about the same. But in terms of stickyness, they are way better. The car feels like it's stuck to the ground like it should be....the Pirelli's were remarkably poor in terms of traction, whether it was straight line or around a corner.

Since the Pirelli's only lasted 14600 miles I'm also guessing the Nitto's won't be any worse and hopefully better.
