    Nitto tyre not very popular here due to it being imported quite recently only. In Thailand they are popular since it was represented quite a few years already.
    As for NT555 they are summer UHP category but UTQG is treadwear 300 Traction A Temp A only. Ask and see if they have NT555 G2 which is next Generation UTQG Treadwear 320 Traction AA Temp A

    Like that got a few factors dy. How old are the NT555? What price he selling? The only good thing is Nitto are Made in Japan, however looking at the reviews from overseas the RE-003 fairs better but the ones here are Made in Thailand. Seems NT555 weak in the wet and looking at the pattern, looks like not much grooves to channel water.
    I would say if cheap and tyres not old (check the tyre manufacturing date on the sidewall) then go for the NT555. If not, then go for RE-003

    Not sure how old is it yet, haven't seen the tire so far he only send me pictures of it. If my memory serves me well I think he said he got it for all 4 below 500, but he trying to sell me together with the 16 inch rims lol...well I guess I'm better off with 003 but for now 003 don't have stock for size 195/50/15? Only 195/55/15..

    It's new bro vr, with the tyre sticker still on the tire tread size 205/45/16... I guess I'll stick with 15 inch tire cheaper also hahahahaha but I'm concerned about 16 inch can put power down better in the future when I bot.. tough decision. Will see what's the manufacture date of it first
