Great! Thanks for the info!Wavydavy GTO said:I ran 275.... BFG's on the stock rims with no problems. Now I have 275 Nitto DR's on the stock rims with no problems. The guy at the tire shop just said to run 35lbs. of air instead of 30. I don't have any rubbing and didn't have to have the wheel wells rolled out. They don't look too wide on the rim either but the stance is much more aggressive looking. That's just my experience with them.
Hey wavy do you have any pics of the nittos on the car? I would like to see how they look...Wavydavy GTO said:Let me clarify, the BFG's were not DR's, they were the same as the stock tires only wider. I picked the Nitto over the BFG DR for a couple of reasons: Living in Florida we have so much rain and I heard from several folks who have had both that the Nitto has better wet traction for everyday driving. The Nitto's also seem to last much longer than the BFG's so they are cheaper over the long haul. My neighbor got 20k miles from his last set of Nitto's while going to the track 3-4 times a months. You just HAVE to stay on top of the tire pressure and make sure you don't drive them low. I always stop at the first gas station when I leave the track to put air back in them.

That looks so damn cool! anybody have a price or a part number for GTO OE wheels?????? maybe it will just be cheaper to get some plain 17" wheels, tire rack now has wheels for the GTO.Wavydavy GTO said:Here are some pics of the Nitto's.
