  • 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: 20 x 10 Inch Wheels, 2005+ - REAR Only

  • Directional tread design
  • New Drag specific engineered compound
  • Large center tread block for continuous contact with the ground

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.

I think my stock premium Foundry wheels are 20x9.5 will I need to go to a 20x10 or greater for a 315?


  • For the NITTO Extreme Performance NT05R Drag Radial - 315/35-20 (05-17 All), the recommended wheel size would be a 20x10. A 20x10 wheel would be the most comfortable fit on a large drag radial like this one.

Will these tires have any problems with a 2 inch suspension drop?


  • The NITTO Extreme Performance NT05R Drag Radial - 315/35-20 (05-17 All) will fit on a car that is lowered 2". Though, there may be clearance issues with the fender depending on the offset of your wheels.

Question Resolved

I'm sure this a dumb question, but can you run 20's in the back and 19's up front? I need the 315's in the back.


  • You can absolutely use 20 inch wheels in the back and 19 inch wheels in the front.

    Big grip for big power

    2013 GT with 10-11lbs of boost making a dyno proven 670bhp. (560rwhp). My garage looks like a tire store due to all the tires I have tried. Finally my search for grip is over. These tires are amazing and perfect if you want to put power to the ground. Soft R compound for grip with a relatively stiff sidewall that still gives good cornering performance. I used to spin in 1st, 2nd and 3rd and now it just hooks. If your tired of getting beat of the line, these tires are the answer. I love them! They also look amazing. It does slip easy in the rain, so recommend driving slow and careful, but it's not a rain tire! It does exactly what it's advertised to do and I will be buying two more when these wear out. For cornering or road track driving I take the 20's off the back and put the 19's back on with a shorter side wall tire which gives more accurate cornering. The NT05R is the best choice I have found for a DR that can also work on a daily driver.

    Awesome improvement NT05R

    If you have a powerful car and traction is a problem, you need these tires. I was doing right well with my stock Pirrellis, or at least I thought I was, until I mounted these Nitto NT05Rs and then the difference was unbelieveable. With more than 400 HP to the wheels, I decreased my 1/4 mile ETs by 2/10s + seconds. Give them a try.

    Huge improvement over stock!

    After adding a supercharger 1st and 2nd gear were basically useless with stock tires. I installed the NT05Rs and spin a little through first and fully hook in 2nd. Money well spent!

    Holy Traction

    2011 GT500 w/ minor bolt-ons and the SVTPP. All I can say is WOW!! I have been searching for a affordable street slick that hooked so well that they take the oh $&@! factor out of ripping through the gears. Well long story short I found them! These tires on my 20X10 wheels fit perfectly. A tiny overhang yet still a gorgeous look. Obviously, watch yourself in corners and wet weather but it is apparent that these tires were purely designed for those sunny weekends. Well worth the money! You will never wanna go back to anything else!

    Great tire

    These tires hook up better than anything I've tried. I was mainly worried about the wet traction, but I was pleasantly surprised. They performed very well at highway speeds in light and moderate rain. And I experienced very little loss of traction in a torrential down pour. They will spin if you give them too much gas in the rain, but no more than any street tire.

    sticky tire

    good sticky tire for the street. Do not drive in the rain with them, as with any drag radial... even with the car in neutral the rear end will sway around because its hydroplaning.
