    I would say stick with the nittos, they're great tires. If you want more traction or something that would last longer, go for the nt555 up front and the nt05 in the rear as you have it.

    @Spool go with these. No point mixing and matching plus these are the right size.

    What wheels? Are you still using the OEM GT2 wheels (and whatever wheels what are their measurements)?

    Why not use the regular NT05 Street tires in the front if your using NT05R track tires in the rear? They have basically the same tread design and a lot of people use them together since the NT05R was based off the NT05

    This is a good suggestion.
