Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
The Nitto Tire NT555 275/40ZR18 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 10 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.

Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Details

What is the widest rear tire I can put on a 2013 Gt,while keeping the factory wheels?It came with 235/50/18


  • The widest your stock 18"x8" wheel can take is a 255 tire. More specifically a 255/45-18

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


  • 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!

    This is one of the best tires around for the money. I have replaced these tires 3 times already. I use them on a set of 4 Azev Type B 18x8 wheels all around on a clean 95 Tbird. I tried to get a different tire and many tire dealers told me not to mess with this fitment. I love the look and feel of these tires and the durability I mean youcan\'t beet them!!!!! at least not for the price you\'r paying.

    I just recently purchased these tires to go with some deep dish bullit wheels and all i have to say icy that the ride quality increased by 200%! My gt is lowered by 1.25in and with these tires there is no rubbing at all. Also by shocks pretty much need to be replaced but now that i have got these tires its like a whole new suspension. As for performance, these tires are very sticky and are great for everyday use and for the occasional street light sprint. The wear factor is typical of a performance tire but for the price this is definitely one of the best mods you can do for your stang. Overall the tires make the car seem new, it rides real smooth and there is no fitment issues at all. I would definitely buy these tires again.

    Grip, Grip, Grip, and more Grip

    I bought my 2006 GT Premium that already had the NT555's on it. After 40,000+ miles I finally bought new ones, just because I knew they are wide, and provide great traction. To quote another review, if you like to drift, slide around corners, or have easy burn outs, you wont like this tire. Didn't realize how much tread actually wore down on my old NT555's until I got my new ones.

    Great tire for all around best performance

    The nitto 555 tires have great traction with an even better ride quality. Purchase these tires with a full suspension kit and you won't regret it. Superior handling that makes the car seem like its stuck to the road through curves! Overall great tire and would recommend the 555's to anyone!

    the tires i previously had were garbage. i had alot of traction problems and it limited when i could drive my car. i got these and its a night and dayy differance. dry traction is insane. wet traction is better thnever. no more fear of the ramdon rain storm while out. i can honestly say that i had t drive on roads covered with ice and they still found a way to stay planted.

    perfect fit

    Good street tire, currently running on 08 S197: 275x40 all around with 1.5 drop and caster/camber plates on 18x10 rim, no rubbing found. I guess for some an alignment might be needed for clearance. Result: Higher speeds before sliding and less corrections needed in the rain. Note, while these are new and good in the rain, with NITTOs (255/50-17) found that they are good in the rain only during first 50% of their live, later they become more prone to hydroplaning. Not the best street tire, but for the price it is good. And yes, sure it is a daily driver ;)

    excellent for my daily driver.

    I don't drive crazy but I can feel the grip compared to the ones I had. They look great on my saleen replicas. I shopped around for tires and these were the best deal.

    Great Traction!

    I put these on the back of my 2010 h/c/i GT which makes 392rwhp. The old tires I had only spun in 1st through 3rd but these hook great not to be a drag radial only leave about a 5ft black marks now before hooking when going from a dig. They don't hook like a drag radial but if you drive your 'stang more than a couple times a month like me then these tire's are the perfect medium between traction and tread wear!

    Great Tires!!!

    These are the first set of Nitto tires I've purchased. So far I am extremely happy with the purchase. Not only do they look great, but the ride has improved and I feel much more control when cornering or pushing my GT to it's max!! I'm sure I will be purchasing more of these tires in the future for sure even if it's not for my mustang.
