  • Solid All-Season Performance in a Pretty Candy Shell

    Feb 11, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, M&S rated, long tread life, good all-around performance, very good wet weather performance
    Cons: Sacrifices too much compared to dedicated summer/winter tires; befuddling packed snow handling could be better

    Summary: Size tested: 215/55VR16 Vehicle: 1999 Acura 3.2 TL Comparison Tire: OE Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus 205/60VR16 Comparison is also relevant for Honda Accord owners with 16" wheels. Putting aside the tire's good looks and ... read more

    Pros: SUCTION CUPS in the RAIN & BEAR CLAWS in the SNOW.
    Cons: Hard to find at local shops.

    Summary: Friend of mine got these tires on his Honda Civic a few years ago and the AGGRESSIVE TREAD PATTERN is the first thing I noticed. After the Michelins needed replacement I decided to look for the Nitto 450. PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING INFO: ... read more

  • DO NOT BUY

    Feb 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A great looking tread pattern and a low price.
    Cons: TOTALLY WORTHLESS AND DANGEROUS. A mud & snow rated "performance tire." Think about it.

    Summary: Before I wrote this, I read some of the other reviews, and I can not believe that there are people out there that can actually give these tires a positive review. These tires are THE ABSOLUTE WORST TIRES ON THE MARKET. Please read that last sentence ... read more

  • very good "summer" tires

    Apr 13, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: very good on dry and wet roads. nice looks.
    Cons: m+s rating is overrated. hard to find a replacement.

    Summary: I replaced my worn OE 16" michelins with these tires after the first snow fall. I would consider these tires only for the summer because they ride very well on dry and wet roads. In fact if you live in area where it rains a lot, get them. I totally ... read more

  • Will definitely buy again

    Pros: Price , treadwear , all around good performer
    Cons: None so far

    Summary: Read a lot of reviews mostly done by idiots claiming that these tires are retreads or that they are no good for racing...Racing what a focus or civic on streets?? People putting 17" wheels on a car that weighs 1500 pounds and wonder why they can't ... read more

    Pros: looks good, z rated
    Cons: no grip at all in the rain or on dry pavement.. DO NOT BUY THESE!!!!

    Summary: These have to be the worst tires I have ever seen.. I was running Goodyear Eagle TR's with great success but the cost of the tires was steadily getting higher so I went to find a cheap tire to replace my front 2 tires.. my 2 main choices were the Nitto ... read more

  • Avoid this tire at all costs

    Jul 31, 2002 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: None (Might make good flower planters)
    Cons: Very poor in wet weather, and cornering on dry pavement

    Summary: I purchased this set of tires over a year ago. They are on a 1994 Saab 900S. Size 205/55VR15. These are the worst tires that I have ever owned. I went from the Pirelli P6000 to the Nitto. The cost was about the same. But that was the end of the ... read more

  • I'm a cornering fool with these

    May 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent grip of road in dry and wet conditions. No noticeable road noise.
    Cons: None so far.

    Summary: I put the 225/50-17 size Nitto NT-450 tires on my 2000 Maxima SE to replace the stock Bridgestone Potenza tires and the difference was immediately evident. The Nitto tires allow me to corner at higher speeds, absent any squealing. I feel more secure when ... read more

    Pros: show stopping good looks
    Cons: everything else, this is one of the worst tires i have ever driven on

    Pros: GREAT performance all-around, good looks and a low price
    Cons: A little hard to find

    Summary: I purchased these tires to replace the ones on my 1997 Acura Integra GSR 2dr. The stock Michelins were horrible. Loud, very poor rain performance, squeals in moderate turns, hard ride for the sidewall height, and too expensive. I found the ... read more

    Pros: great performance at a value price, cool tread pattern
    Cons: they don't last forever

    Summary: When I got some TSW Stealth 16" x 7.5" rims for my 91 Eclipse, I got some slightly used Michelin XGT V4 215/55R16 with them. They gave me some good service for about 2 years of highway driving before they started making a lot of road noise. I ... read more

    Pros: Excellent performance. Great price.
    Cons: Noise (supposedly) Gets Louder As They Wear

    Summary: I was amazed at the performance these tires offer for the price. They grip the road nicely while still offering a smooth quiet ride. Nailed! How often do you look at the passenger side of your car? I rarely do, except in the cases ... read more

    Cons: Can be hard to find...

    Summary: I live in the deserts of Arizona, and have found that this tire gives me great cornering and response, coupled with low noise. Even when the monsoons hit, my wet traction was much better than I had anticipated. I've driven over 15,000 and they still look ... read more

    Pros: Price
    Cons: Noisy, low mileage.

    Summary: I bought these tires because of the price. It wasn't too many miles down the road that I wish I had not tried to save some money. THEY ARE SO NOISY EVEN MY KIDS NOTICED THEM. Now I am 20,000 into them and I took my car for service and the tech shows me ... read more

    Pros: Looks good on the vehicle.
    Cons: Don't go for looks these tires will make your car handle like crap.

    Summary: My first experience buying tires over the net and my last. If I had bought them locally I would have returned them long ago. Bought a complete set from The Tire Rack including wheels. Package looks good on the vehicle, but handling and control is awful. ... read more

    Pros: Best "TOTAL COMPROMISE" tire I have ever driven on.
    Cons: NONE, unless you race on these tires, which I do not.

    Summary: I have 30,000 miles on a set of these (205/55-16) on a 1992 Mitsu Eclipse GSX and WILL buy them again when needed (in another 5 to 10K miles) Traction in any weather condition has been excellent with this tire if NOT pushing the limits. I live in the ... read more

    Summary: I put these tires on my honda civic about a year ago. Nitto is supposed to be extreme performance. I ain't no extreme performer but let me tell you they are some bogus hard tires you will come to hate. They are like racing tires with hard tread. they ... read more
