My friend had that exact same size NT555 on his GS400, and the sidewalls tore open on the highway. Real fun.

There are a lot of good tires in that size. The K104 is an alright one, if you can get 4 new ones for $500 then get them for sure.

Also look at the Kumho SPT, Falken ST-115, BFGoodrich KDW, and Pirelli Nero M&S. All on the cheaper end available in that size, all good tires.

For $500, yes. They are a copy of the Michelin Pilot Sports, which are one of the best. For your driving needs, they are more than enough.

Generally, run from Nankang/Wanli/Federal and a bunch of other really low-end brands. Too many quality control issues. Kumho, Hankook, and Sumitomo all have very low pricing and much better quality.
