I just got nt555's a couple months ago and they are really good. They are even the best tire I've had in rain too.

The Kumho is a softer compound and will provide better grip in all aspects of performance. I have been on Nitto 555's and I wouldn't buy them over the XS.

oh since the kumho ecsta xs is softer compound then it will wear out faster. correct?
