Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
NT555. The Nitto NT555 275/35-18 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: 18 x 9 Inch 1999-2004 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.

Awesome ride

I bought these tires to go with my 18x9" white Saleen wheels. Perfect match. I absolutely love the ride; there's no road noise and these tires actually handle really well in the rain. I heard good reviews ...

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


  • 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!

    NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire - 275/35-18 (99-04 All)

    These tires are awesome, besides the nice aesthetics, performance wise I feel like I got my monies worth and then some. I live in Florida with a lot of rain and since I got these tires I rarely feel any slip, if there is any. Also, this size is perfect for a Mustang, it really transforms the look into something awesome.

    Nitto Tires!

    These tires are some of the best that I have owned for my Mustang. The grip is awesome! Cornering is must better and sharper. The tires look like they will last a while as long as I keep the burnouts to a minimum. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good tire.

    Absolutely amazing

    By far the best tires I've ever had on my 2000 GT. I replaced my stock wheels & tires with the Saleen 18" wheel combo and I immediately saw a difference. I originally bought these tires in November 2012 and had them battle through 2 harsh winters until I hit a pothole and ended up puncturing both front tires on New Year's Eve.

    Great set of tires. Had them mounted n before you know it I was out racing competition on the street. Great traction. You won't spend too much time burnig out. Now if that's what you wanna do, just leave it in first gear. They look great ride even better and not too pricey.

    My new Nitto's.

    I put NT555's on my '08 Shelby GT500( cold air, pulley, tune, and modified exhaust. Around 680 horses at the motor. There isn't a street tire that will hold this car, but these Nitto's ride soooo much better, are a lot more quiet, corner better, and have much better wet traction than the stock goodyears. Today was the first time I drove the car in the rain, in heavy stop-and-go traffic and they do a great job of handling the water and stopping. Taking off is another matter, but I'm very pleased with these tires. I went with the 275/35-18's on the front and rear because I wanted to be able to rotate my tires. They look small and a little out of place, but they will look better when we lower my car.
