    The Nitto NT555R Exreme Drag Radial tires are designed for competitive drag racing while being D.O.T. compliant for the trip to the track and back home. This tire outperforms all drag racing radial tires while providing impressive control and handling yet still delivering up to 15,000 miles of tread life for normal street driving. These tires are constructed with a specially formulated soft racing compound to provide maximum traction.

  • Competition Performance - The overall construction has been modified to improve launch performance. The NT555R was designed to achieve a balance between maximum dry performance and occasional street use.

  • High-Speed Stability - Semi-radial construction combined with a unique reinforced package helps provide stability at high track speeds.

  • Street & Strip Consistency - The tread compound is formulated to achieve a balance between tread wear and drag strip performance, allowing for the weekend racer to drive to the track, compete, and drive back home on the same set of rear tires.

  • A Perfect Pair - The NT555R drag radial works in unison with the NT555 Extreme Street Performance Radials, so you can put the drag radials on the rear axle and the NT555s on the front axle. When developing both product lines, Nitto matched the tread pattern and sizing to fit modern performance vehicles.

  • 40133 - Nitto NT555R Extreme Drag Radial Tires is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding tires Tires preform excellent on the street and track .. had surprisingly good traction in the pooring rain as well . Never worried about spinning. (520 hp Nissan 260z 2580lbs) ls swap (8 inch wheels as recommended). Tires preformed better than I expected. Highly recommend these tires for people who like to cruise in their drag cars often as well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tire This will be my second set of nitto tires. Last set was Mickey Thomson. They hooked good but didn't last long at all. The Mickey's definitely have a softer side wall and very noticeable when driving on the street. My last set of nitto's lasted twice as long and hooked very well also. I haven't had a chance to get these to the track yet to compare to the Mickey's.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets my needs 245/50R16 is the factory size tire (only Nitto makes a drag radial this size) for my 87 Formula 350 Firebird and since traction has always been an issue with this car the NT555R seemed like a possible solution. With only the addition of a Spohn torque arm and NT555R's my street traction issues have been resolved. The tires handle and ride just like a good street tire when aired to 32psi. The car is only driven a few hundred miles a year in dry weather... mostly to car shows and very soon to the track. They will probably dry rot before I wear them out. I'm VERY happy with them. I'd give these tires a 5 star rating if Nitto made a matching NT555 street radial in the same size to run on the front.
