After being torn between the DW and NT555 G2. I balanced and mounted two 285/35/19 Nitto NT555 Gen II's today for the rear. Stock Goodyears on the rear were on the wear bars and I got a flat. Still running stock Goodyears in the front. So far I am impressed. Took them out and scuffed them up a bit. Leaving the driveway they were picking up gravel. Handling response, turning in, and stability in the turn is definitely noticeable. Very stiff tire. To my surprise they held quite a bit of power on this 50 degree day. I didn't try to blow them off, held quite a bit of power in 2nd and 3rd. What was most noticeable was how fast they recovered, and once the spin was slowed down, I could feel them biting and jerking the car forward. I felt rather confident peddling the car. Overall I am impressed and would recommend, definitely better than the Gen I 555's which I run on my 2006.
