    Well I just ordered some Shelby flat black CS1 20x11 20x9 rims. I ordered them with 255/35/20 Nt05 up front and 315/35/20 NT05R tires in the back. What life should I expect from my rear tires as i DD my stang 20 miles a day. I race maybe 1 time a month but im hard on my weekend drives around. Still have the option to do the non R nt05 sames size for less $ would they really last that much longer?

    I have the non R's. Shit tire for drag racing, it's meant for corners, super stiff sidewall. I'm at about 12000 miles on em and 6 passes at the strip, they are around 30% tread now.

    The non-Rs will last twice as long as the Rs. You can expect up to 15k on the NT05Rs, and 30k+ on the NT05s; with how you drive.
