NT555's last winter through snow and they did just fine. I mean i drove really slow as you should in any stang in the snow. They did fine. Out of those two if youre planning on using them for all seasons, get the NT555's. The NT05's are really nice tires but they have no tread on them for all season driving. Just saying. Nerd, i didnt know that you had NT05's. What do you think of them???

If you want a good all around tire that would work great in all weathers, I would go with Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S tires. I know from experience that they will move your car in a decent amount of snow. We had about 3 or so inches on the roads for about a week last winter and as long as I went slow I was fine. You should, if you cannot park your car for the winter, have a set of winter tires but the F1 A/S's will work great! BTW, I am buying the 555's in March when I get my new wheels for this coming spring/summer. -Discount Tire employee for 3 years and counting lol, if that even means anything to you haha.

That company has great employees it seems like all over. I only do my tire business with them; knowledgeable & they treat the customers right. ps: Again my vote.... 555

Im getting 555s When i get back home. And im going to keep my stock set for winter. Plus im going to try to drive as little as i can in winter. Maybe an old 800 dollar beater car for winter? You could maybe find some rims at a junk yard or something.
