Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
The Nitto Tire NT555 255/40ZR17 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 9 Inch 1994-1998 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.

Fitment: 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 Details

I have owned plenty of mustangs. All had Nitto 555's installed on them. This is my favorite tire to use. Never had any issues. Plenty of grip. Rides great. Even with aggressive driving I get a lot of life ...

Will this tire rub on 2004? Fr500s Every tire place I've been to says that these tires are way to big for the front end , that without a doubt they will rub, they said that a 265/35-18 would be a little better, I'm just curious if there is any possibility of rubbing and put the myth to rest. My car is stock suspension and ill be putting on the black chrome 18" fr500s , thanks!

  • We've sold tons of these 275/35-18 tires for 18x9 wheels and haven't had any issues. This is the largest size tire that will fit without rubbing and clearance problems on the front and rear of the 99-04 Mustangs. Hope this helps!

Tire fitment on lowered '97 GT I recently purchased a set of your 18" Foose Nitrous wheels. The "best fit" tire size recommended on your site for '94-'98 Mustangs is 265/35-18. Can I get away with the 275/35-18s on all four corners or should I stagger the 275s in the rear with 265s up front? Would 285s fit in the rear as well? Thanks

wes320

  • The 275/35-18 would rub if you used that on the front of your Mustang. The largest you want to use in the front would be the 265/35-18. If you want to stagger, I'd suggest using the 265s up front with the 275s in the rear. The 285s are meant for 18x10 wheels. Hope this helps!

I have a 10 gt lowered with steeda sport springs, will these tires fit my chromed 2010 gt500 18 x 9 wheels for the front

Freddie331

  • This tire is too large to use in both the front and rear of your Mustang. This 275/40-18 should be used with an 18x10 wheel in the rear only. We recommend the 18x9 be used with a 255/45-18 to ensure there's no rubbing or fitment issues. Hope this helps!

Will these fit on the front of a 2004? I don't want it to rub or will I bet better off running a 275?

Jordan

  • The NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire - 285/35-18 (94-04 All) would be slightly to big with out any modifications done. I would recommend going with the 275 for the front.

    Wicked awsome

    I had just spent almost 800 on new tires that fitted my stock rims. Well I bought the new salleen wheels and this new tires wouldn't fit. So then I went to buy new tires from a local tire Co I have done business for years with. Big mistake. The price AM gave me for 4 new tires is less than the local Co wanted for only 2!!!! The tires I got look sick. I love the look. The way they stick to the road is crazy. I couldn't be happier. Trust me you want regret it. Don't make my mistake. If your getting rims get the package. It will save you big time. AM is the best company ever. I won't do business with anyone else.

    Can't beat this tire. It's performance given the price is incredible, I'm on my second set now. Ride quality is good, wet traction is lacking but it makes up for it in the dry and tread wear is totally reasonable. Definitely recommend. Don't cheap out on a set of sumi's, you will regret it.

    Review from NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire - 315/35R17 (94-04 All)

    Great Rear Tire for the Street/Spirited Driving

    I've used NT555s for all my Mustangs I've owned and this has been my go-to tire. I've always hooked up well on the street; even dumping the clutch it'll spin a bit yet still be accelerating hard. Wet traction is pretty reliable, of course until you step on it, then it'll spin a bit, but nothing more than you can handle to get it back in line. Highly recommend this tire for your 10.5" wide wheels!

    They do their job, hooks up and corners harder than an average sport tire. Treadwear isnt that great, but worth it if you like to have fun. This is my second set, last set lasted about a year, but thats probably my dirving habbits.
