ok, im lookin for some 315/35/17 tires. i know of the NT555 and Sumitomo that everyone runs. is there any other suggestions you guys have tired and liked better? thanks
Toyo TQ drag radials are fine in the rain.How do you drive your car? That is the most important question to finding the best tire for you. I've run Nitto 555Rs to 18,000 posibly 20,000 miles since tread is still left but I have to run them at 18 psi. Toyo Proxies TQ come with a warning to not run them in the rain. None of the drag radials last longer than 20,000 miles. You have to get a street tire if you want longer mileage.
Exact words from Tire Rack:Toyo TQ drag radials are fine in the rain.
WARNING! As a dual-purpose competition tire, the Proxes TQ is designed with a reduced tread depth and a special tread rubber compound for optimal dry weather traction. Therefore, it is important that you frequently check the available tread depth, because like all competition tires, the Proxes TQ will wear out much sooner and offer less wet weather grip than regular passenger car tires. Never use Proxes TQs, or any tires, on the street if they are worn down to the wear indicator bars, i.e., the available tread depth is no more than 2/32nds of an inch. USE EXTREME CAUTION AND REDUCED SPEEDS WHEN DRIVING WITH THE PROXES TQ IN WET CONDITIONS.
