So I'm wanting to get a set of Dr for the season. I'm torn between the nitto nt05 and the mickey Thompson et street 2. While everyone knows the reputation with the et 2 the nittos are more in my price range.

Now my first question is anyone has anyone ran the nt05's? Pros/cons?

Second question. Ive heard nittos run small as far as width. My current street radial is a 285. And fit perfect. I thought of a 315 but that may be overkill. So maybe a 295. But the nitto only comes in 315 and 275 and I fear one to big and one two small.

Please help guys

What sidewall and wheel diameter are you gonna be running?

I know a guy that runs NT05s on all four corners and he absolutely loves them. The mileage is better than the MT ET's if I remember right.

You're gonna want to go with a 275 then, a 315 would be bulged out major on those wheels.
