Description
Nitto NT05R. Nitto's all-new NT05R is a D.O.T.- compliant competition drag radial designed for the serious drag racing enthusiasts. The dual-purpose sidewall construction and the all-new specialized race compound enhance traction during launch and delivers stability at the top-end. This results in reliable consistent control from the tire. The NT05R will launch you off the line quickly and down the track with speed and confidence.

DOT approved. Can be run on the street, and deliver up to 15,000 miles of tread life in normal street driving. However, this soft and flexible tread will wear much quicker than tread compounds formulated for regular passenger cars.



Provides maximum traction on the track. The NT05R is manufactured with a large center tread block that provides a continuous contact patch with the ground along with Nitto's new drag specific engineered tire compound to provide excellent dry traction on the street or the strip.



5 Year Warranty. This Nitto Tire comes with a 5-year warranty from the date of purchase. Some limitations do apply. Please see the Full Nitto Warranty disclosure for details.



Best Fit: 18 x 10 Inch Wheels, 2005+ - REAR Only



Features:
  • Directional tread design
  • New Drag specific engineered compound
  • Large center tread block for continuous contact with the ground
  • Sidewall construction features large shoulder blocks for increased straight-line stability
  • Competition Drag Radial, Traction and Temperature B

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! For proper winter storage and care, please see this PDF file.

pretty happy

My decision to go with the Nittos was only because they were the only tire height/width for my 18x9 rears that i needed, and after previously owning a set of used 555R's, i was certainly worried these

    April 19, 2013

    My decision to go with the Nittos was only because they were the only tire height/width for my 18x9 rears that i needed, and after previously owning a set of used 555R's, i was certainly worried these werent gonna live up to my expectations. My first(and only thus far) track day with them was in 45 degree weather so I was kind of paranoid that id not get the best out of them, and i surely doubt i did but i was able to cut 60 foots in the 1.8x range(3.73/cai/tune only 3v) with 15-16ish psi cold in them, and a pretty weak first gear burnout. I imagine with a little bit more of a smoke show and some good weather I'd see 1.7s pretty easily. The only performance downside i see is the fact that they're 18 inch with little side wall, but obviously thats the price you pay when you want an 18 inch radial. Streetability is where I was most impressed though, I previously ran nitto 555's(street tire, not the R) for the past few years and honestly i dont feel a difference just driving around between the two. The only slight issue you may have is when its warmer out, alot of tiny gravel is gonna stick to the tires. Anyone who truely wants a tire that you can DD and hook hard at the track all in the same package, I definately recommend them, and if you're debating between the 555R and the NT05R, don't hesitate to get the nt05r.

    These tires are one of the best drag radials I have used. I like them much better than the traditional NT555R Nitto tire. These NT05R tires have a much stronger bite. Perfect for the street or strip if you are having traction problems.
