Default Nitto NT01 Anyone?

I see on their website the following sizes for 20 inch wheels:255/40ZR20 (97Y)3712206.328.0310.248.5-(9.0)[email protected]/30ZR20 (101Y)3712106.327.4812.6010.5-(11.0)[email protected]
Would this work for our cars, or the differentials would freak the freak out?

28.03 front and 27.48 rear looks very close... it is about 2% variance front to rear

In comparison the TOYOs R888R in 255/35 front and 315/30 rears have 27 diameter front and 27.5 rear... again with half inch... 1.8% difference

Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s in 245/35 front and 305/30 rear are 26.8 front and 27.2 rear respectively.. 1.49% difference

What do you guys think?

Nitto won’t work...rear needs to be around .3-.6 larger than front overall diameter

Deep inside me I knew that would be the answer... LOL... Great great tire. I had used it on my older 997. Super quick.

Back to the 888R and Cup 2 as the two main challengers!

I used NT01 too on my 997 cars..great tire. I tried R888 back then too..horrible tire. Not sure about the newer R888-R versions though...I’d like to,try them but I’ve been real happy with Michelin Sport Cup 2.

hard to find an overall better tire set than the various Michelin offerings for these...honestly not sure one would ever really need anything else unless you're into a drag tire for 1/4 mile cars, but that's just me.
