Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neo Gen 235/40 18 My lowered XTI loves these tire rain or shine. I find that I have grip under breaking and through the mountain passes in the heaviest of rain fall. I have ran Nitto tires in the past and loved them. Now that I have a lowered vehicle I was looking for a more even wearing tire. The last set wore out the inside way too fast and I didn't like the fact they only lasted 8,000 miles. Looking at the Nitto Neo Gen tires after 5,000 miles, I still have a even wear from inside to outside. I'm very happy and looking forward to see how they look after 10,000 - 15,000 miles. I will be buying the Neo Gens for the life of my Subaru Forester XT. A great tire for a AWD beast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much more comfort than performance After ordering new wheels & tires for my car, I decided to replace the stock tires (Dunlop Sport Maxx 245/40 18) with the NeoGens as I liked them on my 350Z and lasted quite a long time, even with the aggressive camber (-2.5 degrees). As soon as I go into the car I noticed a massive difference in handling and grip. The tires seem to roll with a much softer shoulder than the "summer only" tires I had removed. Normal driving is much more comfortable now, but steering is less responsive and braking distances have been increased by about 20%-30%. While this is not an ideal situation on this kind of car with the type of driving I am putting my car through, it suits the purpose of the tires as I needed. They will last a long time, handle better than most comparable all season tires, more comfortable than the summer only tires on my other wheels and have excellent wet traction for the money. I will probably continue to own a set of NeoGens on most of my cars as an alternative to a track style tire as they are designed well for sport compacts driven on a regular basis. Now to order those NT555 G2s for some mountain pass runs......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tires at a very nice price Was reluctant to purchase initially but I bit the bullet and went with a name I knew from my tuner days. Nitto was super popular back when tuning imports had really taken off (circa 2000). I installed these and on the first drive I found a defect in one tire. I took it back to the shop and it was warrantied with no issue. I have put about 10k miles on these and I love them! Sticky when they need to be but quiet still on the highway. Wet traction was much better than I expected. I have very little issue with slipping on take off and they really push the water out of the way. I also have non-stock size (205/50 16) which helps a little. Will be buying again for my R53 17" wheels!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from killer tire for the price the sidewall seemed to flex a little more than expected...that being said...ive autocrossed on these all seasons (they were all I had at the time) they offered good feedback and feel I thought. The traction I had with my mr2 was rather impressive....and with 90whp not being my cars strong point on the track....I could predictably chuck my car around knowing it would either stick...or slide. placed 3rd with all seasons and 90whp against other cars that looked to be out of my league...nitto has now sparked my interest, and I'm going to take a look at their performance tire....all in all....I really liked these tires and they did everything I could possibly ask an all season to do..good job nitto!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than factory Great sticky tire, after first mounting them I immediately noticed the difference in grip from the factory michelins hmx4s. Huge improvement, and they last right about the same as far as UTQG. Running on RPf1s 17x8.5 barely any stretch. Will buy as the same tires as my next set once these wear out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Miata! These tires replaced siped Barum Bravura 2, 185-60/14 and were bought with new 15" wheels. These tires are MUCH quieter than the others, traction is better, and ride is smoother. I was worried at first that wet traction might not be as good, simply from the looks of the tread, but they are actually better. Love 'em!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy Nitto Neo Gen Tires Right Now. These tires are simply impressive. Going from OEM Pirelli Nero 195/45 R16 to Nitto Neo Gen 215/40 R17's is highly recommended. I expected an increase in grip and performance but the real surprise was in ride quality and road noise reduction. Everyone notices the difference. I spent the first few days of ownership engulfed in an area wide rainstorm. I never found the limit of grip even in the wet. The Abarth is my daily driver and this has transformed my commute.... and made me look forward to twisting weekend roads. Great Job Nitto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love em! I got these tires after a brief stint in the Toyo Extensa HP I bought the car with, because they were awful. I could not be happier with this tire! With my job I travel between IL, WI, and IN in all kinds of weather and these tires have held up beautifully; I do have a different set of winter wheels/tires. I have driven through heavy rains with 0 issues, I can even say that u get minimal slip over paint strips at red lights, to be expected with any car on any tire. On the weekends this tire shines! I love going for short blasts and the tires grip and rip especially on warmer spring/summer days. I cannot recommend this tire enough for any enthusiast with some factory camber for tire wear, grip, versatility, and a great looking USA made tire!

Size: 235/30ZR22
MSPN: NITO-185340
Features:
  • 3D Multiwave Sipes
  • Wet Traction
  • Reduced Wear
  • Advanced Siping Technologies
Benefits:
  • Are cut into interlocking ripples instead of straight lines os they provide exceptional wet traction while solidifying the block to help reduce wear and prolong tread life.
  • Deep circumferential grooves combined with the slanted three-dimensional tread blocks evacuate water. This helps maintain contact with the road and provides increased wet traction.
  • The inner shoulder is made from one continuous block, which adds stability and reduces tread flex. This helps in reducing irregular inner shoulder wear commonly associated with vehicles with negative camber.
  • 3D Multiwave sipes are cut into interlocking ripples instead of straight lines so they provide additional wet traction while keeping the block firm to help reduce irregular wear.
Warranty:

Speed Rating:

The speed rating is a measure of what speed the tire can safely maintain for sustained periods of time. A higher speed rating will generally indicate that you will have better control and handling characteristics. Speed rating standards are established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Manufacturers assign speed ratings to tires after extensive performance testing. On the sidewall of every tire, you’ll find one of these speed rating codes:

M – Up to 81 mph
N – Up to 87 mph
P – Up to 93 mph
Q – Up to 99 mph
R – Up to 106 mph
S – Up to 112 mph
T – Up to 118 mph
H – Up to 130 mph
V – Up to 149 mph
W – Up to 168 mph
Y – Up to 186 mph
Z – (See Below)

What does ‘Up to 99 mph’ really mean?
Tires with a Q speed rating can safely sustain speeds of up to 99 miles per hour. The tire may be able to reach higher speeds, but traveling at speeds higher than 99 mph for any length of time would be unsafe - the tire is not designed to handle it.

What is a Z Rating?
For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a Z rating may appear in the size designation ...above 186 mph, a Z rating must appear in the size designation, including a Y speed symbol in brackets.

A Few Tips About Speed Ratings…
Never mix tires with different speed ratings, as this may cause serious handling problems.

We don’t recommend downgrading the speed rating of your tires, as the vehicle manufacturer has done extensive testing to determine which tires match the various driving characteristics of the vehicle. However, if you are looking for better handling, there is generally no problem in moving up to a higher speed-rated tire.

Most importantly: Put safety first. The speeds shown are test speeds; they are not recommended speeds.

Temperature Rating:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated A – B – C. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

Traction Grade:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA – A – B – C. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Treadwear Grade:

A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Looking for new tires with optimal traction? Or are long-lasting treads a bigger priority? There’s a simple way to compare tire specs!

The Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) system was developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assist consumers in the purchase of their tires by providing a standard grading system used by all tire manufacturers. Tire manufacturers use the UTQG system to grade their tires in three important areas: treadwear, traction and temperature. The UTQG grade for each tire is shown on the paper label affixed to the tire and is also molded in the sidewall.

Treadwear Grade – A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Traction Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA ABC. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Temperature Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated ABC. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

UTQG is a great way to compare tires from various manufacturers and between specific lines from the same manufacturer. Remember: The UTQG isn’t a safety rating and it doesn’t guarantee a tire’s mileage performance - but you can use the UTQG in conjunction with price, warranty, appearance and recommendations to make the right tire choice for your needs. If you have any questions about UTQG or various tire lines, the Big O Tires team is always ready to help!

Hauling groceries – or bricks? The Load Rating or Load Index indicates how much weight each tire can safely support.

Every tire’s load rating is stamped into its sidewall. Once you know the load rating, you can use the chart below to determine the amount of weight that one tire can support. Then just multiply the weight by four - or the number of wheels on your vehicle - to determine your vehicle’s maximum load-carrying capacity.

Load Rating Table

Sometimes the maximum load (for example, 1060 kg) will be stamped into the sidewall so that you don't have to decipher the load rating. Remember: never install tires with a lower load-carrying capacity than the tires that were installed on your vehicle by the manufacturer!

Load Range:

The load rating is a measure of the tire's strength — its ability to hold air pressure under load.

The load rating influences the sidewall strength of a vehicle tire. If a tire has a load rating that is too low, the handling of the vehicle could become unstable as the sidewall buckles under the vehicle's weight. Conversely, a much higher load rating than needed can dramatically harshen ride quality.

The recommended load rating for a vehicle's tires can be found in its owner's manual. It is also normally affixed to a sticker located on one of the vehicle's door jams. If you are replacing tires supplied with the vehicle from the manufacturer, the load rating written on the tires is an appropriate guide.

Sidewall:

There are other codes on some tires that provide you with additional information, some of which are specific to light truck tire applications. Some of the other codes that you might find on your tires include:

LT = Stands for light truck application. Example: LT235/85R16
C, D or E = Load range indication for light truck applications
REIN = Reinforced
OWL = Outlined White Letters
RWL = Raised White Letters
ORWL = Outlined Raised White Letters
B, BLK, BW, BSW = Blackwall or Black Sidewall
W, WW, WSE – Whitewall or White Sidewall
XNW = Extra Narrow White Width
XL = Extra Load Capacity

Section Width:

The linear distance between the outside sidewalls of an inflated tire without any load (exclusive of protruding side ribs and decorations).

Sidewall Aspect Ratio:

The ratio between tire height and width.

Important note on quoted prices:

Prices quoted do not include additional charges for sales taxes, mounting and balancing, valve stems, tire disposal fees, state recycling fees, tire protection plans and other charges. Prices may vary from one store to another or from one date to another. Tires listed may not be in stock at the identified store.

How Are Tire Sizes Specified?
The first number describes width of the tire (section), the second number describes the aspect ratio (profile), and the third number the wheel diameter (rim size).
Alignment makes a big difference in how long tires last, how much gas you use, and steering and safety. When you buy new tires, we'll make sure they're properly aligned with a free alignment check!

What is TPMS?


TPMS is an electronic system that monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are under- or over-inflated. Proper tire inflation not only boosts your safety, but also the life of the tire and its fuel economy.

TPMS

Some components of the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced due to wear and corrosion over time. Our TPMS rebuild kit includes all the necessary parts to service your TPMS sensor and keep this important safety feature functioning properly.
