Pirelli P7000S vs. Nitto NT-501

By Mark Snell

January 21, 1998

I switched from Pirelli P7000S in 215/40x17, to Nitto NT-501 in 225/40x17.

The benefit:

1) "Correct" tire-to-wheel-to-body size relationship (AKA: aesthetic improvement)
2) Greater tire section -- more in keeping with the car's weight
3) Quicker steering response
4) Lighter steering
5) More rim protection

The cost:

1) Wet weather performance
2) Straight-line tracking
3) More noise
4) Outdated tread design
