new tires,,, nitto neogens

Well when i bought my 17's they had practically new Kumho ASTs and i ran about 20k on them but had to replace them yesterday. They were ok tires at first but just got worseeeee over time, hated them.

went with Nitto Neo Gen in 215/45/17 (same size as previous). First impressions are really good so far, super quiet in comparison. Grippy too. Tread pattern is different too. Paid about 89$ a tire. Hope I get at least 20k outta these, tires are expensive! Onto the pics!





mm fresh treads

may sound like a n00b but does this matter or what's it mean exactly?

how have the tires held up for you if you have any mileage on em?
