Top 3 Nitto NT555 G2 Reviews

Given 54% while driving a Mazda RX 8 231PS (225/45 R19) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
These came with my car so I'm reviewing them in used condition, but tread life etc. appeared fine when received. They perform ok in the dry at high temperatures, so I would say they are acceptable as summer tires depending on pricing etc. In cold or rainy weather they don't do well, and I would avoid driving on them in cold, rainy weather especially. Car starting sliding on the highway today with them despite driving carefully (rear slide out at about 90mph going uphill in 40F, drizzly weather).

Given 63% while driving a Ford Mustang GT Convertible (285/35 R18) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
These tires perform best when you can get them hot. Under 60 degrees (F) they are noticeably slicker, I only run these tires in the late spring and summer. These tires have a fairly rigid sidewall so don't expect them to ride like a grand touring tire. The amount of feedback in the tire is pretty good. I found these tires like to pull the car into the ruts of the road. I get the tires spinning pretty often at intersections and in parking lots and so far haven't had any excess wear or chunking issues. You can get away with the speed limit in light rain, but in moderate and heavy rain you will be going at least 5-10 mph under the posted speed. Expect the rear end to slide out often and expect fairly long stopping distances in the wet.

Given 67% while driving a Ford Focus ST250 (235/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Dry-grip is okay-ish. On my Focus ST, it's pretty understeery and I can't say for sure, but it sort of feels like it is even easier to overdrive this tire than my previous, 4 year old Eagle F1 Asymetric 2's.
Launch grip... well... wheel spin in 1st and 2nd gear. Even when I'm flooring it in 2nd gear at 25 mph. It isn't bad, but I've expected more.

Wet grip... it's okay, as long as you don't push it.

Feedback feels good and direct

Handling - the tire tells you clearly when you're overdriving it. But the limit is too low imo.

Wear seems fine so far.

Comfort - not that much. On really smooth surfaces it's okay. On rough tarmac or with many cracks in the road it is pretty loud.On paving stones it sounds like your wheels are made out of wood.
