With that said, has anyone ran Nitto tires on their 3rd gen, and if so, how did they do? I've talked with a few 3rd gen Camaro owners in the past and they tell me the original tires these came with (Good Year) no longer really produce any good tires for these cars anymore. Does anyone know if that's true or not?
I have nitto extreme performance NT 450's on my car. They are a performance all season tire. They are grippy yet do fine in heavy rain. Eventually I removed the back tires for mickey thompson ET streets. I still have the Nitto's on the front, they are around 13 years old and have about 20k miles on them, no issues.
