Description
The Nitto Tire NT555 255/45ZR18 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 9 Inch 2005+ 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.

Got these tires w/wheels from AM. Very pleased with them. They stay glued on dry roads and aren't bad when it rains with the TC on. They hook up nicely on the track but take alittle bit higher revs

Tread life How many miles should I expect to get from a set of these tires with proper rotating and keeping the tires at the correct inflation suggested ? Also I am looking to buy the Solid Black Bullitt style wheels in the 18X8 size and it says the 255/45 18 tires are the ones that will fit these yet when reading the info it says they fit the 18X9 best so which size is it that these tires fit ?

    Perfect!

    Ordered these with 18x9 Bullitts from AM and love the tires. The performance aspects can be felt immediately, as these tires provide more grip and stability over stock. It felt like we gained an all new suspension. The ride quality is very good and the noise level is fine. Got caught in the rain and the wet traction was the same as the all season street radials we had previously. Have got a lot of positive feedback and comments since putting them on. A well respected tire. Were a perfect match to the rims and the clearence and wheel well spacing is spot on, which it does not scream out that the car should be lowered to fill a gap. A MUST if you are getting new rims for your Mustang!

    Got these tires w/wheels from AM. Very pleased with them. They stay glued on dry roads and aren't bad when it rains with the TC on. They hook up nicely on the track but take alittle bit higher revs to do burnouts. Much better then the stock radials. Worth the money.

    Nitto NT555 Tire

    I live in Vancouver, Canada with adverse driving conditions in the winter months, including a lot of rain and near freezing conditions. I have only had my Nitto tires for a couple of months, but I'm very impressed. The very first time I went out of town it rained fearsly and the car handled far better than any other tire on the Mustang. Oh, by the way, I drive a 2006 Mustang GT. The previous tires have always been BFG's TA's. The Nitto tires far exceed the preformance of the TA's. On dry mountain roads, they are fantastic! I made the right choice on choosing the Nitto NT555 ultra high performance Tires

    Nitto tires

    I've had these tires just over 8 months and they're the best rubber I've ever owned. Bought the 18 X 9 deep dish black bullit wheels at the same time, and get compliements on a daily basis. They really go good together. Tires grab the mountain roads where I live better than any I've driven on, and the wide stance gives the Pony a really sharp look from any angle. Got the locking kit too along with the TPMS sensors. Ordered on Monday and delivered on Wednesday. Unbelievable service from AM. Love the Nitto's.

    Hook Up

    Nice tires. Couldn't hook up the OEM's on a Supercharged 05 Mustang. These hook up great. Road pretty harsh until I bled the pressure down from the 47psi that American Muscle shipped them at though!
