From the factory, there were three runflat tire choices filled with nitrogen. Front tires are a 255/40/20. Rear tires are a 285/35/20 The premium tire was the Bridgestone Potenza RE070, it is a treadwear 140 tire. The Bridgestone tires run about $1700 a set. The base tire was the Dunlop SP SPORT 600 DSST CTT, that is a treadwear 200 tire. The Dunlop 600's run about ($1780 a set). The Dunlop is the quick tire for the Nissan GT-R on the track. It will have a little more road noise than the Potenza, but on a track, it will be a few seconds a lap faster than the Potenza. The last choice, which might be your first choice would be the all season Dunlop 7010 all season tires, treadwear 240. They cost about $1816 per set. The all season Dunlops come standard with the cold weather package.

I'm waiting for your replays guys​

by semi slick do you mean r compound like michellin cup, toyo 888, or pirelli corsa tires? the answer to that is the gtr does NOT have r compound tires as stock.

When I said semi slick I mean that tires are using in the drag racing it's the same as the tires on drag race ?

Stock GTR tires are most definitely NOT semi click tires. They are full tread tires. Whoever told you that they were is sadly mistaken and has obviously never owned a GTR.

Sorry, can't find a website better than you. I know from 3 yr's ownership and 4 sets of tires, both old and new style Dunlops, and old style Bridgestones.

I just realized the above quote is from my site. I can add the line - "These are not semi-slick tires." if that will win your argument.

Stock runflat GTR tires are not semi slick. They are Extreme Summer tires for street use. They are not considered R compound tires which often have treadwear ratings of about 30 to 60.

From
http://www.hankooktireusa.com/motor/event.aspx?pagenum=4&subnum=5&childnum=1
Quote:
Since the RSS Z211, we've introduced R-s2 Z212 and the (newest) R-s3 Z222. All of our track/street UHP tires have a common pedigree in high technology engineering, which has a deep heritage with our venerable R-rated semi slick DOT approved tire (the Z214) which has recently been the dominant compound for enthusiasts and pros.

From tirerack.com
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Hankook&tireModel=Ventus+Z214

Quote:
Ventus Z214 radials feature a symmetrically designed semi-slick tread with 4/32" of beginning tread depth that's only interrupted by two circumferential grooves to reduce squirm, undesirable heat buildup and eliminate the need for tread shaving.

Another example of semi slick competition tire-

Typically any semi slick race tire will wear extremely fast if used on public roads and they are prone to tread damage.

The exception would be a harder rubber compound competition track tire like the Toyo R888

It has a semi slick shoulder tread pattern
