*****Do not buy Nitto tires for 22's*****

OK just posting this so you guys can avoid my pain. I recently bought 22's and had Nitto 285-35-22's put on them. As soon as i left the tire shop i got a humming sound between 35-45 mph and at 70+ mph it was like i was driving on the warning strip on the side of the road.

When i called the tire shop thought it was a balancing issue so i went to another shop to have them road force balanced. They decided that two tires were bad and the tire shop ordered me new ones. Four days later the new tires came in and i had them put on and the noise was still there. We then thought it was a bent rim since the noise went away after 45mph and came back at 70+mph so i was off to have the rims checked.

So i made an appointment with a wheel shop to have the wheels looked at. Five days later i go to the wheel shop appointment and the wheels are not bent or off at all. I call the tire shop and they want me to try a different brand of tire. I had them get perelli tires but they had to order them.

Three days later i get the call that the new tires are in so i bring the CTT down to the shop. I just got back from the shop and guess what? It rides as smooth as glass and no noise at all.

Im posting this so you guys don't make the same mistake with Nitto tires that i made.

I've had very good luck with the Yokohama Parada Spec X tires on my 22" wheels on my GTS. Nice and quiet, good, sticky summer performance and an all season tire that can handle the snow.

Yes they gave me a full refund. They were shocked when the problem went away with new tires, i think they thought it was a rim problem.

I have the Nt555 and don't have any issues with them. I'm actually going to pick up 2 more just in case 1 or 2 tires gets punctured.

hey guys, just about to replace the tires on the 22"s and was about the Nitto's but this thread gave me some concern. Anyone else have any issues with the NT-555's in the 22" sizse range?

I have had the same experience with nittos. I would never buy them again.

I's not just 22's. I have tried Nitto's twice in my life. The 555's many years ago and they were terrible. Acouple years ago I tried the Invo based on write-ups. They were size 19 I hated them and took them off the car long before they were worn. Never again.

Great suggestions on tires, guys; I'm planning on 22s for the truck very soon.

A few years ago I ran NT450s, and at my recommendation my brother ran NT555s. We both loved them... I hope their quality isn't declining.
