Do you think something like this would work?

Anthony

If you are doing an 18 inch wheel i would do M&H hands down.

The NT05R is a decent tire, MUCH better than other options in 19inch, however the MT or M&H are far superior to the NT05R. I have fun with the NT05R mostly because I bought a pair to try, but the MT and M&H are the better choice imho...

I have 2010 with 18 front 19 rear , and I was going to buy the NT05R for REAR .You said you have used these before on some builds .What tire size did you use on the FRONT 18 inch wheels , so that the computer didn't have Active handling issues ? I know you can't alter more then 1 inch from from and back height size
So if i buy the NT05R i wanted to know what to put up from on my 18 's

I believe the 295 nt05 (not R) is the best. I actually was wondering the same thing!

I was really hoping someone had the front tire size for 18 inch wheel / when using this NT05r for rear this would really help me out

295 nt05 - Tire Diameter:26.18 in

345 nt05r - Tire Diameter:27.36 in

OEM is a 1.1 inch difference. The above is 1.18 - damn close, and will not cause any issues with the ABS.

Can someone help me please. trying to find out best drag radial with size 265/40/18
Was looking into MT, but don't have the size nor does M&H.
Nitto NT05 has them, but not sure if they will be good on the road as well as drag
