Well in any street tire you will have wheel spin 1st and 2nd. When I tested the NT05s out in 2nd pump/pump and meth, I had no wheel spin. As far as the PSS, I would spin in second on pump and I would spin in 3rd on pump and meth. Let's just say on race gas, I was getting a little squirrelly at 120mph in 4th gear.

Don't get me wrong, the PSS would have done great for awhile until the thread starts to wear down. I love the PSS tires before when I was NA, but now the car has doubled its power.

People on the forum such as CW recommended the Nitto NT05 as the best "street tire." It obviously handles well in dry roads, BUT also in the rain which was crucial in my area. Most summer performance tires don't perform well in rain.

Bridgestone RE-11s were recommended as well but are too expensive compared to other great performance tires. So in the end, I went with the Nittos. I will have a full review once I drive around more with them on. I would also need to try them out on race gas
