    Ryneen's car on NT01s last weekend was incredible. I want to say they were 275 rears...? Anyway definitely one of the best handling cars I've ever driven.

        actually.. i guess i really dont have a choice... i rememebr billy saying the contact patch of the NT01 will be similar to the larger r888 since they are round tires... ugh

          I liked the feel and response of my 275 NT-01s on my 3600# Camaro better than the 295/305 R888 on my 3200# Corvette. The R888 has gotten better though with more heat cycles, that or I wasn't as much of a Nanci driving on them last time

            I wouldn't touch R888 with a 10-foot pole. NT-01 way better, even if smaller size.

              I'm with you sheriff. Gotta go NT-01 here I think.

                        I know it won't help you, but anyone in L.A., here's where I get my NT-01. He can usually get them on a few hours notice, and he gives me free mounting and balancing. A set of 4 NT-01 255/40/17 installed and out the door including sales tax is $812.
