The NT555R drag radial works in unison with the NT555 summer performance street tire, 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.
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.
Semi-radial construction combined with a unique reinforced package helps provide stability at high track speeds.
The tread compound is formulated to achieve a balance between treadwear and drag strip performance.
