Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
NT555. The Nitto NT555 285/35-18 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 10 Inch 1994-2004 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.

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

will a 275/35 x 18 front tire rub on my 2001 car will your staggered set of tires and wheels, your item#33617, properly fit my car? I lowered it for about 1.5 inches. I'm really concerned that the front tires will rub.


  • A roush is lowered 1 inch and I have a Roush. I have lowered it about another inch and have plenty of room so I'd say yes it will work

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?


  • 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.

    Looks great on the car, very soft and sticky tires, visible wear after about 3 burnouts, they wear very fast, great for dragging though. Hookup awesome, even in rain.

    Best bang for your buck!

    I bought these t go with the FR 500 Chrome wheels for my 03 Cobra, I left the Wet traction rating blank as I don't drive in the rain so I cant put an honest opinion. These tires are a huge improvement over the stock tires that were on my cobra, ride quality is excellent and when I punch it in 1st/2nd I definitely feel planted to the ground a lot better than the previous tires. Overall I am satisfied!!

    LOVE These Tires

    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 out of them. When these wear out, I will purchase another set. LOVE THESE TIRES.

    Great Midrange Tires Very Sticky

    I've had these things on my car for about 5,000 miles. They have started to make that little grounding noise when you slow down to a stop in a parking or at a red light. Its fine, doesn't bother me. The tires are very good in wet rainy weather. I feel very safe driving it through storms. The back roads are getting torn up after I put these on my car. I enjoy scaring my passengers while driving fairly quickly around turns and bends. The amount of grip is massive. I am very excited to get the lowering/suspension kit on the car in the future. One upgrade at a time.

    these tires work great on a summer day, but when the road is wet, it's a bit skittish under accerlation I must say. but we own sports cars, it's expected to buy sport tires, :-)
