Anybody tried NT05?

I have the stock 18'', Tirerack did not list NT05 as options. Which size work OK? How do they compare to PS2? I am planning to track some.

I like these tires, they're very affordable too. Tirerack generally doesn't carry toyo/nitto passenger tires.

Get them, I have on my 18's and liked a lot more over PS2's. Buy 245/40 & 285/35, 15mm spacers front, 10mm rear, drop it and you are all set.

Agree with Boosted twin.

Those are amazing tires.
Great performance dry and wet, but a little bit rough on the ride.
Treadwear is 200.
the best size for the 18" would be 245/40 and 285/35.

Great wheels ... For the track but not so much for street use (noise)

275/35/19 are available. These are a much cheaper alternative than other tires like the RE-11, yet still perform in the same category (Extreme Summer).

265 width is not available and the Noise level is a little high but great value as MrHarris mentioned.

Why would I need spacers?
Is it a lot noisier than PS2?
Performance on par w PS2?

I don't feel any noise with these tires, maybe a bit rough ride but that's it. It might be due to my exhaust setup...

I have these on my car right now.
I think they car good. But the thread wear is not much when the come new. Good grip. I am running 275/30/19

Performance in the dry should be noticeably better, as well as turn-in and steering response due to stiffer sidewalls. As far as the wet goes, the PS2's are one of the best so I doubt the NT-05's will be better there.
