My nitto drags lasted almost 2 years and my 555's have lasted 3 years before a semi ran over the car they were on.

my problem too. i even emailed them to ask if they were going to make any, but never got anything back.

i am looking into these tires now pretty seriously though. i was worried about rain performance, but i can tell that isnt an issue. they guy's review on the other forums said theyre better than the eagle f1 gs d3's...impressive

I have the BFG g-force sports right now... they're a great rain tire as well, but these nt05's sound like a good upgrade for when these tires wear out...

I used to have these before I got my nittos. G-force tires are terrible for anything other than a civic lol. I got no traction even with stock gears.
