Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
The Nitto Tire NT555 255/35ZR20 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: 20 x 8.5 Inch 2005+ Wheels

  • 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.

Can you use the all the time as a daily driver? I know it says summer performance tire but is it a good tire for daily driver in all seasons?


  • While you can certainly use this tire year round, I wouldn't recommend it. Summer oriented, high performance tires are designed for optimum traction and handling in dry conditions. They also perform very well in wet conditions with great hydroplaning characteristics. They may not however, perform as well as needed in snow and icy weather. I would consider the NT555 to be a 2 or possibly 3 season tire. Hope this helps!

    Just installed a set on my 2011 gt. Was running a 245/40/20 nexen. Well what i do know is that tire looked way to tall, rode like a log truck, where very noisy, Only thing that was good about them was they lasted for 40000 miles and was kinda cool feeling like i was driving on ice all the time. So far the nittos ride better hook up better and are quiet, but they do look narrower than the nexen.

    Nitto 555 Extreme ZR

    I had two have two new tires for the front of my 2005 Roush to make the trip to Mustang Week. I Needed them fast as I waited until about a week before to realize I needed them. I received them in like 3 business days! I Installed a set of Camber bolts and had it aligned to correct a negative camber issue due to lowering springs. I drove 6 hrs to Myrtle Beach. I drove all week there with laps around the 1/2 mile oval, and another 6 hrs back home. The tires handled awesome and have that awesome Nitto look. The price was cheaper that Summit Racing, which is just down the street from my home. I am very satisfied with the tires and will purchase more in the future.

    Wow! What a great tire!

    I replaced my Cooper tires that came on my 20" Roush wheels with the 555s and I am super impressed. I got about 4 years out of my Coopers and I liked them. But the Nittos rock! I have 4.10s in my 2005 GT and it liked to spin, easily too. Now with the 555s I can actually punch it in first and second and not spin. I really have to try to spin the tires if I want to, which is how it should be. I recommend these Nitto 555s to anyone with a mustang or other car for that matter. I love the tread pattern as well.
