okay so my good friend has given me a chance to buy his set of Rota Slipsteams. they're black 16x7's. i'm the first person he asked and he'd be willing to part with them to me for $400. they're only5 months old and in great shape. my question is should i use the Azenis that are on them now or opt for Nitto's?:smilejap: and how well does the Azenis perform compared to the NTo4's or 555r's? they're all street legal racing tires but i want the best one for cornering.

anyone have any input?:Rock:

remember the azenis are inately a heavy tire. wonderfully sticky but alot heavier than the nt555. and do they make a 555 in your size?

Well if the tires are already on there, then I would use them.

Take this how you will: Autocrossers go through Azenis like candy, and they swear by them. There are a few other tires that get alot of use as well: some kuhmos, hankooks, and the advans. But I have never heard anyone say anything good about Nitto tires.

only drawback to azenis is treadwear. they are amazing tires. i used them on my car when i auto-x last year and they were amazing compared to the hankook tires i had 1st race.

For 400, snatch them up. They are 450 for rims alone!

I love my azenis. To see how they perform, have a look at my video posts...

Oh yeah, I did neglect to mention that.

I hate the wear on Azenis. They don't last long. Especially the old ones (the 215's). The new ones are a little better.
