anyone having running issues on these? I just had an alignment done and unless I run -3 degrees camber in the back, they rub constantly. Never had an issue in the old 555r. Be aware that these definitely sit different on the wheels vs the old ones.
No issues here, sounds like your fitment is off.

I'm on 305/35/20. Just put the BMR drag spring on and it doesn't work with this wheel setup I guess. I would have needed a 305/30/20 in these vs. the old 555R. Going to get a spring spacer to put above the isolator which should do the trick. One thing I forget is that I have a water tank and sub woofer hanging over the rear which take about a 1/2 out of the suspension height. I really don't want to run heavy camber in the rear when I mostly do straight line stuff.

Wondering what fromt tires you guys are paring these with. I currently have NT05 and they are pretty good but honestly don’t hook with boost in the rears. So I was going to keep the NT05s for the front but am concerned about the aesthetic look with mismatched profiles on the rear tires, I know, who cares but I’m anal like that I know nitto suggest NT555G2 to match due to the tread pattern but those are legitimately horrible tires. And obviously when it comes to corners I feel and obviously the NT05’s up front would be waaaaay better than the 555G2’s. Anyone feel they look mismatched with other nittos specifically the NT05’s I know silly to care about with radials just humor me please. Lol.

I ran Michelin Pilot 4S in the front. No issues.

Wondering more about the way they
match other nitto side wall graphics. As ridiculously silly as that is. You said you “ran”. What do you use in the rear and fronts now?

I run MPSS in the front. I've never noticed the graphics being different lol. Both tires are all black, not like there's any white lettering to make one stand out over the other or anything.

Lol. I know silly question. I just like things “matching” makes it hard because the G2 are just so terrible. I joke and call them all season tires with all that tread that they have. i can’t bring myself to get them. Looks like I’ll keep the NT05’s up front.

Sold that Mustang for something different. We still have (2) 2020 GT’s in the driveway.

Nice car but be careful with it. I had a friend just get into a wreck with his because of the steering wheel locking up and he's not the only one who's had the issue.
