Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
The Nitto Tire NT555 P245/45ZR17 is a summer-oriented, ultra high-performance street tire that was designed with the performance driver in mind. With one of the largest contact patches available, the NT555 provides superior traction and reliable handling - without sacrificing tread life. Both the tread pattern and the compound were optimized for dry performance. The highly rigid tread blocks provide stability while prolonging tire life. The NT555 will get you off the line quicker in the straights and provide confidence in the corners.

Superior traction and reliable handling. By utilizing a racing concept design, Nitto Tire's engineers developed the NT555 "Extreme ZR". With a specially formulated compound and one of the biggest contact patches available, the NT555 provides superior traction and reliable handling.

Excellent anti-hydroplaning characteristics. The three-circumferential grooves channel water efficiently, while the lateral grooves break up the water wedge. This combination of grooves and channels reduces the chance of hydroplaning. Combined with an increase in tread block rigidity, a high modulus carcass, and hard bead filler, the NT555 delivers total vehicle control under all driving conditions.

Directional tread design. The tread pattern on the Nitto NT555 is designed for high-speed stability and superb cornering performance. High tread block rigidity secures stable contact with the road under all driving conditions.

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 8 Inch 1979 to 2004 Wheels

Features:
  • High-grip compound delivers superior mobility on both wet and dry surfaces, while ensuring a high level of anti-wear performance
  • W Performance Rated, Treadwear 300, Traction and Temperature A

NOTE: These are extreme ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tires. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in far superior traction over “all season” tires. Use during the winter months/cold temperatures drastically reduces traction and exponentially increases stopping distance as the compound becomes less sticky.

    Nitto NT555

    I ordered these with the Black Bullitt Wheels and the ride quality has improved 100%. Road noise is the lowest I've ever encountered, and the increased grip during turns is remarkable.

    Awesome Traction

    I live in Southwest Florida where it downpours all summer long. I bought these tires with doubt in mind that the traction would be horrible in the rain, due to bad experience with other low profile tires. I was amazed when I got these tires installed and drove in the rain. AWESOME TRACTION!!!!!!!!

    Great

    These tires are almost all i could ever ask for in a tire. My only complaint is there is no traction on snow or ice but thats not what these tires were designed for so i\'m not too concerned. Other than that i get great traction everywhere and i recommend these tires for everyone.

    Nittos are quality

    Im running a pair NT555 on the front with NT555R Drags out back. Excellcent ride quality with no road noise, really absorbs bumps in the road. I changed from Sumitomos to Nittos and the difference was night and day. Spend the extra $$$ and get Nittos!

    Amazing

    Really awesome tires! Very grippy, have never under-steered on my once. The best part is how they handle very wet conditions, it takes alot of standing water for these things to hydroplane. It does get a little worse once you have finally worn them down to near the wear bars but they still hold up very well. Superb tires that do more than what you expect.

    Night and Day Difference

    before this i had Nankang 245/45/17 tires that i bought used for my rims when i first got them. i decided to upgrade and it was no kidding, a night and day difference. before i had steering wheel shake, under steer if i took a sharp turn, most of which (aside from the under steer) i thought was something else. i put these on and drove away and instantly felt a huge difference. i would 100% recommend these tires and you better believe ill be buying more when the time comes

    A great daily Driver Tire

    These tires improved the feel of the car under me. They are great. I drive my car everyday, in any weather, and so far though the winter these tires have not let me down. I absolutely recommend this tire for it's mix of performance, feel, and all-weather ability.

    Great Tires!

    These tires are great! They are great quality, and well worth the money! I had some bald tires on my stang before I decided it was time to buy new tires. My brother has had three mustangs and all of them had NItto's on them, so I went with them on mine. They grip the road very well, and are even good in the snow! Yes, the snow. I live in the mountains of western NC and we just got some snow the other day. I drove my mustang with these Nitto's on it from work to home with very little problem! (Granted it was only 1-2 inches of snow and slush) But while everyone else was sliding, I had little problem. If you are in the market for some high quality performance tires, look no farther and buy these! You won't be disappointed. They also look great wrapped around some Saleen style rims.
