Ford Mustang Nitto Extreme Performance NT555R Drag Radial Tire

If you are looking to throw a pair of drag radials on the back wheels of your Mustang that are DOT approved and you can actually run on the street, but don't want to be replacing them every 1500-3000 miles, then you are in the right place my friend! Introducing the Nitto NT555RExtreme DragRadial!

With the NT555R Extreme Drag, Nitto engineers succeeded in designing a DOT approved, drag racing radial tire that would outperform all other drag radials, provide impressive control and handling, and still deliver up to 15,000 miles of tread life of normal street-driving use.

NT555R's are manufactured with the original tread depth of 6/32nds and are constructed with a specially formulated soft racing tread compound to provide maximum traction. However, this soft and flexible tread will wear much quicker than tread compounds formulated for regular passenger cars. The Nitto NT555R is designed primarily for competition drag racing, but is also very popular and exceptional on road courses, track racing, and drifting.

Best Fit:
  • 17 x 9 Inch Wheels - REAR

  • Directional tread design
  • High block rigidity, soft compounding and large contact patch provide extreme dry traction in race conditions
  • Two wide steel belts and two nylon cap plies stabilize tread for superior traction and handling

    NOTE: These are DOT street drag radial and racing specific compound and tread tires. They are designed to be used on the drive wheels only of your car during the summer and warm temperature months. For track or drag use, we recommend that they be appropriately "warmed up" before each run.

    WARNING: Use during winter months/cold temperatures will result in structural damage leading to catastrophic tire failure!
