Default Nitto NT05's

Anyone running Nitto NT05's experience slight flat spotting? I seem to feel a slight flat spotting for the first 1/2 mile or so after it's been sitting for a few days.

I do not have NT05's, but I have Invos & they do flat spot, and leave marks on my Racedeck floor.

I also have NT420S on my truck which is my daily driver, and they also seem to flat spot if it sits for a few days, and are clunky, if that is a word, when cold until they warm up.

Must be something with the compounds in Nitto tires, & the Invos are quiet & the NT420's are noisy, but I still like both for performance & looks.

I run NT05's and dont notice any flat spotting. My Z sits for a least a week at a time or more since i only drive it on weekends.

Same here. I've been running NT05's for 5 years now, and mine is primarily a weekend car, never noticed any flat spots.

I have had the NT05's on my 04 Z06 for 2 years now with no issues at all. My car is a weekend/car show toy that can sit for up to a month between drives.

I have NT05s and I've only noticed what felt like a flat spot once. Car had been sitting for about a month or so, if I recall. On top of that, there was a pretty big temperature swing. Again, that's the only time I've ever noticed.

No flat spots at all. It sat all winter with 5 more Psi in the tires and I was shocked when I drove it. Perfectly smooth. I love these tires.
