NT01. The NT01 is a D.O.T.-compliant dry competition radial designed with the weekend road racer in mind. The compound was developed to provide the best balance of traction, consistency, heat cycle performance and longevity. The NT01 delivers fast and consistent lap times for both the professional road-racer and the track-day enthusiast.

Specialized Race Compound. Nitto uses a special road race compound that balances dry traction, consistency, heat cycle performance, heat resistance and longevity to provide fast and consistent lap times throughout the life of the tire.

Handling Stability. High modulus rayon carcass, steel-reinforced sidewall and the advanced body ply construction combine to increase stability during braking, cornering and straight-aways.

Designed for Competition Road Racing. The NT01's construction design is enhanced for consistency and stability under autocross and road racing conditions. The large, nearly continuous shoulder blocks maximize the surface area contacting the road. This large contact patch increases dry performance while accelerating, braking and cornering.

Caution. The NT-01 meets U.S. DOT requirements, but they are not intended for highway use as the expected miles of wear from their racing tread compound is greatly reduced. The NT-01 is not recommended for driving in wet conditions where there is the risk of hydroplaning. Drivers should drive cautiously at reduced speeds in these conditions.

    Great track tire, lapped Mosport (Canadian Tire Motorsports Park) with a 1:29 in a supercharged 99 GT. Loads of grip, I put ride quality as a 5 since they performed like I had expected. However, on the street they aren't good, very rough, you can feel everything (which you're supposed to). Found the best setup was -3 degrees camber in the front and around 36psi HOT (these do vary quiet substantially from lap to lap, I brought them off the track after 5 laps and they went from 38psi cold to 50psi HOT after 5 laps). Cold is around 28-30psi, they'll heat up and stay at temperature after 1 warm up lap of about 2-3 minutes. I ran them hard for 20 laps straight and got only marginal wear on the sharper edges and slight balling on the very edges of the tire, the tires never over heated with an ambient temperature around 80 degrees F. Everything was expected, phenom grip, lots of noise before they let go and slide but you're pushing well over 1G before that happens. Great in a straight line as well, these seem to use a better compound (softer) than the NT555R drag radials, so if you're looking for a straight line tire and don't want the sloshy feel of a drag radial, consider these.
