Nitto NT-05's vs. RE-11's

What's everyone think about the Nitto NT-05's vs. Bridgestone RE-11's?

I know the NT-05's have 7/32 tread, while the RE-11's have 9/32. I also know the RE-11's will run me about $250 more than the NT-05's. Which is the better route?

I have tried both.
NT-05 is good but the tread coming very thin. compared the the RE 11's traction feels about the same.

I would got for RE11 I have used them and they are good. very good.

but wet is not OK. I think the Michelins sport up is better in wet.

but they only last about 8000km=4000miles
