  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
The Nitto Tire NT555 315/35ZR17 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 10.5 Inch 1994-2004 Wheels - REAR

  • 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

Can i run this tire on a lowerd 99 gt without it scrubbing on a set of 10 1/2 saleen wheels


  • You can certainly run a 315/35-17 tire with a 17x10.5 wheel on a Mustang that is lowered up to a 2" drop without any issues with rubbing or clearance. As long as your Mustang isn't dropped more than 2 inches, you shouldn't run into any problems!

well these tires are only for the rear so you can only rotate left to right so i dont know how long tread will last


  • These NT555 tires are actually directional tires, meaning they can only be rotated front to back and can't be rotated side to side. Due to the size, you're correct in stating they can only be used in the rear. Therefore, these tires can't actually be rotated. They have an approximate lifetime of 15,000 to 20,000 miles depending on driving style. Hope this helps!

Whats is the manufacture year of this tires? In UAE Abu Dhabi, we are not allowed to have tires more the two years old.

Grip at 550ish rwhp. How is the traction with these at or near 550 hp to the wheels?


  • BamaDan, It depends on whether you're talking launching or normal driving. You'll have difficulty launching on this tire, but for normal driving, it's very good.

    Nitto tires

    Tires ride smooth and look great. Grip Is as good as nitto drag radials, hopefully the tread last longer. Ride is definetly smoother than nitto drags.

    Bought this tire for my 02 mustang. 315/35/17 on rear and 245/45/17 front. Perfect combination. For the money, you can't ask for more. Perfect tire. A little wider than the 315 Sumi and much better traction. Will buy again when the time comes.

    These tires are huge! I was upgrading from a 245/45/18 and I can really feel the difference. The look is amazing. Also, a big thumbs up to American Muscle for keeping in contact with me while I was ordering a back ordered item. They let me know when they expected it to come in, and when I could expect to have it done. I couldnt have asked for better customer service.

    Ordered my Nitto Extreme Performance NT555 off from a tire store advertising they could beat any competitors price on these tires. I saved like $120 through for the same product the tire store had. Had them installed free, an Love the way they look an ride. Also grip better than most I think. I got 245/45/17's up front and 315/35/17's in back, and also a set of 10.5x17 rear wheels that match the look of my front factory wheels an I just put in the factory mustang hub cap an it looks real nice in every way possible. I get compliments all the time on how aggressive it looks driving and/or parked! Highly recommend any and all of these products to any mustang owner!

    Best all around Tire!!!

    hese tires are straight up WIDE; 315mm = ~12.5" in the rear looks and preforms awesome! Just think the ZR1 and Viper use 335- these aren't that far off. Thankfully I had no rubbing issues at stock hight or with my brand new H&R Super Sport springs. They do stick out of the fender well a little bit but thats no biggie, they will look more "tucked in" with lowering springs like mine did. However as wide as they are they preform GREAT in dry and wet weather!! I live in WA state and it rains a lot here, its now late November and I have no issues driving on city or highway roads. I will say that these are great street tires but if you want to do a lot of drag racing get the NT05R or MT's or Slicks for even better traction

    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!

    nitto tires

    Very good tires. I have them on my 00 mustang gt and on my 03 cobra. On my gt, the grip is excellent wet or dry. On my cobra they hold good on the street. The contact patch is small in comparison to my bfgoodrich 315 drag radials though, by about an 1 1/2". Fitment is no problem at all on either car. If you need some street tires, theses are the ones to go for.
