    I found some on ebay for $331+ shippin for my 17x10.5" rims. Hows the deal sound to you ? or how about the same deal but for $348 and free shippin, I think thats a better deal.

    keep in mind nittos run very small. you can put a 315 nitto DR on a 9in wide wheel

    From what I hear normal 315s should not be a problem unless you've got a big drop.

    ya but if your looking for traction they suck when they are new and it takes alot to get them warm, my buddy just bought a set for his GTP brand new and couldnt get them to hook and he never improved his 60' times

    ya only downside is the BFG DR's come pre shaven and for some reason i still cant hook em... 8) its okay im going slicks and drag lites for the rear before too soon.

    well since the Nittos I found, both the 275/40-17 and the 315/35-17 sets came with free shippin I decided to give them a shot, came out to be $654 exactly ;D

    I've got 555R's all around. there's a fair share of wet weather here.

    Havn't drag'd much, I may be getting drag slicks.
    I like my nitto's, I had Pirelli's before and these are much better, and quieter.
    they have held up great for me.

    and yes you want the regular R's on the front.

    You'll like em, they look sweet too.
