Nitto NT555R Extreme Drag Radial Tires
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.
