Experience the Art of Tire with Neo Gen, the latest offering of extreme high performance radials from Nitto Tire. Neo Gen's unique asymmetrical tread pattern is an art in motion designed to perform. The innovative three-dimensional, multi-wave sipes are optimized to reduce irregular wear, as compared to conventional sipes. And the slanted, three-dimensional tread blocks provide the necessary rigidity for improved cornering and enhanced traction in varying weather conditions. This perfectly balanced combination of technology and art suits the most demanding automotive enthusiast. With Neo Gen, you'll experience first hand the Art of Tire.

The Nissan 350Z is already a capable sports car right out of the factory. The Greddy 350Z takes that performance from capable to brilliant. A Greddy turbo charger system adds reliable torque and horsepower while the NeoGen tires, suspension upgrades, and brake upgrades allow the car to handle the twisties as well as the straights.
According to the website, the tire is offered in the following specs:

*205/50 R16 91V 10 24.07 8.07 5.5-(6.5)-7.5 1356 @ 50
*205/45 R16 87V 10 23.26 8.07 6.5-(7.0)-7.5 1201 @ 50
*205/40 R16 83V 10 22.46 8.07 7.0-(7.5)-8.0 1074 @ 50
*205/40 ZR17 84W 10 23.46 8.07 7.0-(7.5)-8.0 1102 @50
*215/45 ZR17 87W 10 24.62 8.46 (7.0)-8.0 1201 @ 44
*215/40 ZR17 87W 10 23.77 8.46 7.0-(7.5)-8.5 1201 @ 50
*225/45 ZR17 94W 10 24.97 8.86 7.0-(7.5)-8.5 1477 @ 50
*205/40 ZR18 86W 10 24.46 8.07 7.0-(7.5)-8.0 1168 @ 50
*215/40 ZR18 89W 10 24.77 8.46 7.0-(7.5)-8.5 1279 @ 50
*215/35 ZR18 84W 10 23.93 8.46 7.0-(7.5)-8.0 1102 @ 50
*225/40 ZR18 92W 10 25.09 8.86 7.5-(8.0)-9.0 1389 @ 50
*215/35 ZR19 85W 10 24.93 8.46 7.0-(7.5)-8.0 1135 @ 50

As you can see, there is NO listing for my sizes: 245/35/19 & 275/35/19 respectively. I've sent them an email regarding upcoming larger fitments. The NT555 has always been a great 'bang4thebuck', but this tire looks even more promising!
