Features & Details

  • For Use on Rear Wheels Only!
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: 17 x 10.5 Inch 1994-2004 Wheels - REAR Only

  • 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

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!

Meaty look and grip I love the meaty look cars have with really wide tires. Do these tires run wide and look wide? I know they are 315's but I've seen reviews of other tires saying they look more narrow than others. I need new tires to replace my 275s and want more grip and wide look!


  • Yes. I run these on my 03 cobra and they are perfect. Look wide and grip like nothing else. Only thing you need to be careful of is rain. These are NOT good in rain at all.

    Will hook very well on the street

    I have a 2004 cobra with a whipple 2.3 supercharger. Current rwhp is 560 and 541 rwtq. Trying to hook this amount of power on the street with a standard radial is a I would get wheel hop with a with my nto5r's the wheel hop is gone and i can dead hook from a dig or roll. I highly recommend the nto5r's if u have anything over 450 rwhp. They may not last as long on the street due to the soft compound but imo. it doesn't matter. I would rather not loose to a car that has a couple hundred hp less than me because i couldn't hook the power.

    These tires put the power down

    Got these tire for daily use on my KB 2000 GT. Wow they make a big difference over regular radials. I've driven in the rain with them and they're performance is acceptable but in the dry they dead hook. Great tire and the price is better than getting regualar ol treads from the local tire stores. Thanks AM for delivering on value and quality.

    Very good.

    Really good. They hook up and grab really well. I'm running a 2.1 kennebell at 15psi with 540rwhp and I still grab like a champ and have had them for 6 months. I do not recommend for the daily driver as they wear fast and if you like to boost a lot you might get 9,000 miles before you have to replace them. I drive every once in awhile and these are the best tires you can hope for if you have a super/turbo charged application. They work AMAZING at the strip also. If you have a supercharger these are a MUST, I have friends who tried other nittos that aren't DR's and they wish they had thought these. If you do not have a supercharger but you have a lot of bolt ons, these tires will very nicely complement your grip and you won't find any ricers taking you off the line. Take my advice and go with these DR's, best choice I ever made.

    Overall a really good D/R

    Bought these Nt/05R's about 3,000 miles ago. Overall im very happy with them. They hook nice on the track without having to swap tires for slicks. And are comfortable to drive home on. Only downside, which is to be expected is horrible traction in anything other than completely dry. If your car is not a track queen (like mine) I wouldnt suggest these for a year-round dd.

    Money well spent!!!

    Man I haven't had these tires on the car for more than 20 miles and I'm in love with them. I have a full bolt on gt with a 3.73 gear and when I say these tires hook they hook. I'm coming from a 315/35/17 Mickey Thompson street comp and I am over pleased. As soon as I got these mounted I launched it in the parking lot playing around from about 2200 rpm and it just barked and launched. No spin in second at all just barks the gears. I will defiantly be buying these again.

    Very nice tires and hook very well. Fills up the wheel wells and gives the car a much more agressive look with the deep dish wheels.

    NT05R Review

    Mounted these to my factory 17x9 10th anny wheels for street duty when not on my Bogart drag rims. These tires look awesome and hardly bulge, for any of those wondering. They hook pretty decent on a 450-500rwhp car on the street. Haven't been in the rain, nor will my car ever see it, but as expected and with previous experience with DRs or slicks traction does suffer a little.
