Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
  • Uses a Formulated Compound to Maximize Road Contact
  • Fits 1979-2017 Ford Mustangs
NT555. The Nitto NT555 is a summer-oriented, ultra high-performance street tire that was designed with the performance driver in mind. An excellent choice for the serious Mustang enthusiast, the NT555 is ideal for those who demand the best.

Superior Traction and Reliable Handling. 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.

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.

Application. The NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire is designed for use on 1979-2017 Mustangs. Please choose your size from the ordering options above. Sold individually.

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.

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!

04stang281

  • 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

wes320

  • 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!

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

kevgjo

  • 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!

I cant find the this tire in 245/45 17" size. the only option is for 255/40. Willthis fit on stock 2001 mustang gt?

schonf

  • The NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 in 255/40r17 has an approved rim size of 8.5" to 10" so this would not work with OEM 17x8" wheels.

I live in Florida, Could i get away with these tires during the winter months when it get to about 50 Fahrenheit and also how do they perform in the Rain?

Devin

  • Hello! Yes you shouldn't have any issues running these in 50 degree weather. I ran them last winter here in Pennsylvania, where we saw temperatures less than 20 degrees. In the rain I ran into very little issues, I only ever had one time where they slipped a little bit off the line, and that was towards the end of their life.

Love this tire. I have an 07 GT. 18x9s front 18x10s rear. What tire size would you recommend?

Jonny

  • With a 2007 GT I would recommend NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 sizes 265/35-18 on the 18x9 and 285/35-18 on the rear.

    Wicked awsome

    I had just spent almost 800 on new tires that fitted my stock rims. Well I bought the new salleen wheels and this new tires wouldn't fit. So then I went to buy new tires from a local tire Co I have done business for years with. Big mistake. The price AM gave me for 4 new tires is less than the local Co wanted for only 2!!!! The tires I got look sick. I love the look. The way they stick to the road is crazy. I couldn't be happier. Trust me you want regret it. Don't make my mistake. If your getting rims get the package. It will save you big time. AM is the best company ever. I won't do business with anyone else.

    Can't beat this tire. It's performance given the price is incredible, I'm on my second set now. Ride quality is good, wet traction is lacking but it makes up for it in the dry and tread wear is totally reasonable. Definitely recommend. Don't cheap out on a set of sumi's, you will regret it.

    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!

    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.

    They do their job, hooks up and corners harder than an average sport tire. Treadwear isnt that great, but worth it if you like to have fun. This is my second set, last set lasted about a year, but thats probably my dirving habbits.
