  • Directional tread design
Description
NT555. The Nitto NT555 275/40-17 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 1999 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.

  • If you wanted to use these on your 1995, they would fit the 17x9 wheel on the REAR only. Rubbing could be an issue if you used these as front tires. If you wanted to stagger tires on your 17x9 wheels, you could also use a 245/45-17 in the front with these in the rear. They would both have the same sidewall height and it would ultimately give you better handling and traction! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to give us a call!

    NITTO Extreme Performance Tires handle the road like no other! They stick to the road like glue and even make the ride very comfortable at normal speed. Very good buy at a great, great price.

    Great tire for the price

    Just replaced my stock BF Goodrich tires on my 01 cobra with these. I can now stand on the throttle in 1st gear..not even a squeak. These tires have great traction except for in the rain they slip a little more than my stock BF Goodriches. Also they are extremely quiet. Overall they are a great product i recommend them to any fellow mustang driver.

    Great Traction

    I purchased these along with the 17 x 10.5 Cobra replica wheel. I put them on and went for a spin. WOW. Talk about hooking up. You can really feel the difference compared to the factory tire. I highly recommend.

    NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire - 275/40-17 (99-04 All)

    Installation was very straightforward, my tire guys didn't have any problems mounting them to my 17x9s. They have HUGE gripping power, I have lots more power off the line. Traction is amazing- you'll find yourself trying to pull some pretty sick turns. I'm buying these again when I wear my current set out.

    The Tires I Needed

    Had a set of nitto 245's all the way around on my 04 GT which are very nice tires. Was looking for something a bit wider on in the back after I installed my supercharger and didn't want to go with 315's as they seemed like over kill. In my opinion the 275's were the "sweet spot". Noticably more traction without the extra meat to turn. Still have the 245's in the front which gives my car a subtle staggered look. Took advantage of a $20 off coupon from American Muscle and got the set for under $300. $100 cheaper than any of the local tire shops. You simply can't go wrong with Nitto's so assess which size you need for your set-up and buy with confidence.

    Great tire for the money

    At the track when you warm these babies up they hook pretty well. On the Street they are great, But DO NOT USE IN SNOW.
