    The Nitto NT05R™ Competition Drag Radial Tires are designed for serious drag racing enthusiasts that require a D.O.T. compliant competition drag radial. They are recommended for dry competition use only. The large contact patches and special race compound have been engineered to promote even pressure distribution across the tread and provide maximum traction. The enhanced sidewall construction not only provides longitudinal launch traction but also maintains stability the entire pass through the top end. Nitto NT05R™ Competition Drag Radial Tires will get you off the line quickly and down the track with confidence, consistency and speed.

  • Competition performance - The large solid center rib provides a continuous contact patch for dry traction.

  • High Speed Stability - The enhanced sidewall construction combined with high-modulus bead filler and large shoulder blocks increase straight-line stability.

  • Specialized Race Compound - The new drag racing-specific compound was engineered for increased traction at the starting line.

  • A Perfect Pair - The NT05R drag radial works in unison with the NT05 Max Performance Street Radials, so you can put the drag radials on the rear axle, where rear-wheel drive vehicles need the most traction, and the NT05s on the front axle. When developing both product lines, Nitto developed sizing to fit modern performance vehicles.

  • 40586 - Nitto NT05R Competition Drag Radial Tires is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooks great on prepped track!!! I put these tires on a 2002 vette, that has a pretty good top end build, and runs a 150 shot of nitrous. They always stick hard, have never had any of traction problems. With the nitrous I'm putting 550HP to the rear wheels, running high 10's at 126 to 130mph.
