Description
NT555R. The Nitto 285/40-18 NT555R is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed with maximum flexibility for the weekend drag racer. The NT555R combines a high grip compound and semi-racing construction to provide maximum traction at the starting line. The tire comes molded at 6/32 of an inch and features a unique reinforced belt package to provide improved traction and high-speed stability. The NT555R is the perfect performance radial for the street or strip.

DOT approved. Can be run on the street, and deliver up to 15,000 miles of tread life in normal street driving. However, this soft and flexible tread will wear much quicker than tread compounds formulated for regular passenger cars.

Provides maximum traction on the track. NT555R's are manufactured with the original tread depth of 6/32nds” and are constructed with a specially formulated soft racing tread compound to provide maximum traction. High block rigidity, soft compounding and large contact patch provide extreme dry traction in race conditions. Low void ratio and large tread blocks optimize dry traction.

Designed for competition drag racing. The Nitto NT555R is designed primarily for competition drag racing, but is also very popular and exceptional on road courses, track racing, and drifting.

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 - REAR Only

Features:
  • Directional tread design
  • Two wide steel belts and two nylon cap plies stabilize tread for superior traction and handling
  • Steel sidewall inserts provide control and stability during extreme lateral acceleration
  • Competition Drag Radial, Treadwear 100, Traction and Temperature A

NOTE: These are DOT street drag radial and racing specific compound and tread tires. They are designed to be used on the drive wheels only of your car during the summer and warm temperature months. For track or drag use, we recommend that they be appropriately "warmed up" before each run.

WARNING: Use during winter months/cold temperatures will result in structural damage leading to catastrophic tire failure! For proper winter storage and care, please see this PDF file.

    Wow.

    This is what I needed. My car is an auto with Bama and a few bolt ons. Spin city through first and into second with stock tires. Now at 60 degrees out I'm spinning mildly, 70 I'm hooking if I roll into the throttle, and at 80 I'm hooked up. My only concern is I can find no info on tire pressure--AM please help
