Looks great. I like the FSport rims better seeing them on your car!

Thanks! The Nitto's are noisy, relative to my F1 Assymetricals from Goodyear...but the grip like I am on rails.....

I had them on my G35 for 2 months before I got rid of it and remeber them being quiet but havng a mushy sidewall. They grip well but the initial turn in lost its crispness. I think they provide massive grip because half the tire look like a semi slick tire.


My wife has them on her TL and she like them, but I might stay with my Falkens . I guess if it ain't broke dont fix it

Yeah, or maybe silver. Would help to break up the monotony.
