If theyre cheap and get half way decent reviews id go with them, theyll wear out and you can get the set you want then, i was wanting some nt555s but found BFGs on tirerack for 88$ a piece, so i went with them and when they wear out im gonna get the nt555s
I would go with the Hankook Ventus V12 EVO K110 over Nitto NT555s any day. Nittos are a great budget performance tire, that's about it. They're decent at hooking and not very good in the rain. If you're a drag only racer though, the NT555s would be slightly better. The Ventus K110 can generate a bit more cornering force than the NT555s and provide more feedback when they're about to let go.
