Nitto 450 vs 555

Does anyone have an opinion on the Nitto 450 tires vs the 555's? The price is about the same.

I have the NT450's on the rear of my XR7, with NT555's on the front. I honestly don't have a complaint about either one of them. Both wear very well and they both have great dry traction.

Thanks guys. The specs seem really similar. The 555 are described as a summer tire but on Nittos site the comparison between the 2 is almost identical. Going with the 555's

I found some bad reviews of the 450's and really couldn't find any good reviews of them. On the other hand I found and ton of good reviews on the 555s so I went with them. Only a few hundred miles but So far I'm really happy with these tires.
