The NT05R drag radial works in unison with the NT05 max performance street tire, 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.
The large solid center rib provides a continuous contact patch for dry traction.
The enhanced sidewall construction combined with high-modulus bead filler and large shoulder blocks increase straight-line stability.

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