Nitto 555's or Eagle f1 G force?

Ok this week im getting some sticky 275's for the rears.

I was looking at either the nitto 555's or eagle f1 g force.

Has anyone had experience with them?

I want some good traction and comfort. I dont mid too much about how long they will last.

I was thinking about getting DR's since i have a daily driver. But I thought that some good street tires would be more practical.

Basicly what im saying is which tire is better for traction / comfort.

My Ride: Toyos
i had Nitto 555 on my personal car and couldnt get rid of a vibration after many rebalances. Switched to Toyo proxes T1R and now smooth as silk. Ya, we sell toyos so you could say i'm a little biased, but after having the 555, i would never get them again.

I've been running 555's for two summers now. Traction is good and ride is smooth. There is a bit of road noise now that I've had them a while now. No vibrations up to 185 kph.

I've got the 555 right now and there is noise and vibration, but then again, I also went from the stock wheels to the 19" CSLs so I can't put all the blame on the tires I guess.
