Why Nittos Are The Most Beloved Yet Hated Tire Brand

605 ratings | 18757 views
Tires are without a doubt, the single most important mod for your car. They assist with braking, improve handling/cornering, but most importantly plant the power down to mother Earth. However, they are overlooked by just about everyone, including car guys. In this video, I will be giving my opinion on arguably the most controversial tire brand in the industry. Why do people love Nitto tires and why do some hate them with a burning passion? For those of you that have owned Nittos, give me your thoughts in the comments section below! Otherwise, what tire brands do y'all recommend? Please note: I am by no means sponsored by the Nitto Tires' brand. This is just me giving my thoughts on the NT555 G2s thus far. Hope y'all enjoy the video!

Apologies for the bad angles in the beginning; I'm still a scrub when it comes to live recording. I will get better! Anyhow, let me know if you love Nitto tires or which brands you would recommend.

For SUVs and pickup trucks, I tend to get Michelin or BF Goodrich depending on what I'm using the SUV or pickup for. For sedans and minivans, I tend to use goodyear or Michelin.

Omni Rider Hey Omni Rider, would you motovlog/autovlog more frequently soon? Like a Doitwithdan or Motonosity style motovlog? It can add another layer to the channel since you don't frequently feature the R6 compared to that of your 'maro. You have such great content and seeing you more frequently will make it just that much better!

First nittos I’ve ever gotten were the nt90 snow tires. They handled great, tread was very soft, but somehow held up pretty well with mileage. Friend had neogens and was happy with them, better then his OE kumho all seasons. Just copped a set of nt421q for my car and while I can’t say it’s the best, it’s a good tire that doesn’t break the bank. I feel a lot of road vibrations thru the tires, which is good and bad at the same time. Tires seem to track grooves easier than my falken stz05s, but the nittos are quieter and the tread pattern looks nice.

Your point about Toyo having similar affordability to Nitto is kinda dumb, Toyo is Nitto. Nitto is wholly owned by Toyo.

I have nitto M/T’s and they’re awesome. I have 30k miles on them and still have 3/4’s of life lift in them because nitto M/T’s like being rotated often. They also hook anywhere and anything very well for only 650 bucks. You can’t beat that.

Nexen N5000 plus a Little pricey but I definitely smoked my tires a lot and still got 5000 miles out of them first day I had them I smoked half the tread and by the end of the year I still had enough tire just to go ahead and roast them one last time which never ended up actually killing the tire and I used those same tires to learn how to drift they’re so solid and grippy you have to try them

I personally like the falken azenis rt615 they’re pretty cheap and do a great job on grip (falken drift cars use them too) only problem is that they don’t last very long but I think the price of the tire compensates for that just fine
Ian Miller (9 months ago)
Well I recently got some BF goodrich tires on my car, they handle great but can't say you'll hook up in a dig with fwd with em but they grip around the corners nice and have a nice squeal when you launch and chirp second.

Replaced my GoodYear Eagle F1s with Nitto NT555 G2s on my 96' Vette. Overall price was around $800 where as with the Goodyears I was looking at about $1,500! For summer tires and for all 4 tires of course and my tires are wide so I knew tires wouldnt be cheap. I have 275/40ZR17 in front 285/40ZR17 in rear. Thinking of going 315 in rear next time I change tires and maybe wheels. Love the look and price of the Nitto and they haven't given me any problems. I've put about 2k miles and they are running fine so far.

Heath Throop (9 months ago)
if you want better traction and performance get smaller diameter wheels. low profile tires wont be able to grip up nearly as well as higher profile tires you can run with a smaller diameter wheel. if you want proof of this just go to a drag strip and take a look at what kind of tires the fastest cars are running
Jack Tran (8 months ago)
Heath Throop Smaller profile is better for cornering though.
Ramzi Gonzales (9 months ago)
Michelin Pilot Sports are a good set for performance. My step mom used them on her CTS. For my FRS, Pirelli tires are absolutely phenomenal. Great grip, no issues what so ever. I’m actually about to go from 215 to 245 up front and 225 to 265 in the rear. It may be overkill for it being stock but I plan on getting some big power down the road (by the beginning of fall) and I want everything done so the engine and tuning work will be the last by that I need.

I've tried them on my GMC Terrain back in 2010. They lasted for 2 years around 45K Miles with no problems but I hate them for no reason and I can't say why. Back then I bought the full set for around $560 not sure if price inflation or discount on them. But yah I don't like them although tgey were silent on the road and withstand the hot weather in my city.

I bought my car with a set of yokohama tires on it. Its not the highest preformance vehicle, ~265 hp no aero, but it has an AWD system and I really cant complain. Ive done 10 k miles of really hard driving, going on backroads and taking corners at triple the suggested speed w/o racing line, and they look bran new. The quality of preformance leaves nothing to be desired and I have no reason to beilive they wont last 30 thousand miles properly rotated.

Honestly i have never seen any problem with nittos and i have driven a 1/2 ton 2 wheel drive with them never had a hooking issue most if the time its the rim ya ya bash my in the comments if u like but chrome wheels need radial tired or else you can spin you rim on the tire all while you thought you span the tire you span the wheel right now i have a 1 ton with steel wheels and higher ply mud grips the tire klever mts or something and today i noticed it has so much grip in 1st gear and 4.10s front and rear end that if i floor it instead of spining i leave tred marks or dig marks

Christopher Saint (9 months ago)
Omni Rider, Nittos are fine in my opinion. For the price they have great traction wet/dry, quite comfortable ride, and excellent braking traction. I used to be a Bridgestone guy but they have gotten to big for their britches and have slashed options. It's a "Hey you classic car guy F&ck you! You get work truck tires a-hole" so needless to say I moved on(in my racing days they were my tire sponsor). As for classics I like Cooper I have been happy with My Cooper Cobra GTs they do exactly what I need them to and like Nitto they aren't expensive. I put Nittos (sub brand of Toyo just an FYI) on my wife's car which is tweaked and I run Coopers on my Sleeper wagon. So I don't worry about mileage although I can say we have exceeded 10k miles on her Nittos and still have 70%+ tread life My Coopers have about 15K on them and I am at 85% tread life(we are not gentle on tires). I run Hankooks on my shop truck but it literally is rated at 129 Brake HP sooooooooooo Don't care. My wife's car had Hankooks originally and we made about 20K on them but they got slick in turns at 10K then from 19k to 20K The shoulders basically disintegrated and we decided NOPE to getting them again. Most if not all of the Pirellis sold in the U.S. come out of their Shandong China plant eh. So that is MY two cents Omni do with it what you will, BUT I will add, I will never run Michelin, or Goodyear they are sub par for the price. Yes Most Goodyears are American made and the company is American owned but guess what so is Cooper oh and Cooper owns Mickey Thompson among others soooooo take that info as you will as well. Actually you'd be surprised at the brands owned by Cooper. For your bike They own Avon and Metzler two of the best and the car tire quality is on par in the brands for that application.
Christopher Saint (9 months ago)
Oh I agree as well however when you look at the countries producing tires when it comes to quality control really France, Italy, United States, and Japan are where you have the best and most consistent quality control period. Now everyone bones it up now and again but these 4 are your safest bet when it comes to Ultra High performance tires. When you are talking speeds in excess of 186 mph/300 kmh I don't want to take chances. Even at 186 mph/300 kmh you don't want to take chances. I go where I'm most likely to get a good tire and 29 years ago that was Japan, Now 3 other countries have caught back up.
Dre J (9 months ago)
Christopher Saint If my answer is based solely on where it's made I'd likely pick Western Europe. However, I'd pick the best quality, highest performing tyre regardless of where it came from. If Afghanistan made the best tyre I'd buy that one. Where it's made or who owns it means nothing to me, as long as it's the best tyre for my needs. I'm definitely not as knowledgable as you on tyres but I stand by what I've said.
Christopher Saint (9 months ago)
Yes but they are both obscenely priced for their top performing tires and really when you get below the Y speed rating there isn't much difference between the top 3 or 4 brands. Until you get down to H and S rating then Michelin truly sucks they just don't do good passenger tires. As for Pirelli Most non Europeans can't afford to ship their wheels to Europe just to have them shod in quality Pirelli tires. what we get here come out of the Chinese plant and are Pirelli in name alone with the exception of their police rated pursuit tires those do come out of Italy, but are so expensive they make the Michelin look down right affordable. When tested by Michigan state police who apparently set all the official standards for the rest of the country just because they are closer to the corporate headquarters of the auto manufacturers both Pirelli and Michellin did well but lost to Firestone which is American made but a subsidiary of Japan's Bridgestone and tied Goodyear. So it really depends on application Omni's car isn't really in need of anything over a Y speed rating it's not a ZL1 or Z28 so the Cooper RS3-S will fair as well as just about any other Y rated tire out there and his Nitto's will do fine as well. Besides have you tried to find a (99Y) tire in this day and age good lord they are outrageous and really Do you want a tire of that speed rating not coming from Western Europe, the U.S. or Japan? Be honest now.
Dre J (9 months ago)
Christopher Saint Yep makes sense. Brits aren't really in the tyre industry but France and Italy are arguably at the top with Pirelli and Michelin.
Christopher Saint (9 months ago)
No Dre J I'm saying an awful lot of Americans would rather support our own economy and take pride in buying American made products. I was merely pointing out that there are alternatives to Good Year. You are correct on Pirelli I apologize and have edited I should not type a reply at that late an hour. However the Brits don't make a decent tire Michelin is no better than Goodyear and a good portion of the Pirellis sold are Chinese made so yeah.
