Features & Details

  • DOT Approved
  • Provides Maximum Traction on the Track
  • Designed for Competition Drag Racing
  • For Use on Rear Wheels Only!
NT555R. The Nitto 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: 20 x 10 Inch Wheels - REAR Only

  • 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.

Will this fit a 20x8.5?


  • A 305 size tire would not fit on a 20x8.5" wheel. The largest tire you can safely run on the wheel will be a 285.

Will this tire clear on my '13 GT lowered on Eibach Sportlines? I have a '13 GT. i have 20's sitting at home, just debating on what tires i want to mount. Im really interested on these but i dont want these to rub on my fender nor be too tall for my taste. Then again i dont want a 305/30/20 and be too thin of a sidewall. i dont like that rubber band strechted tire look. Would these clear on my GT with eibach sportline springs with out any problems??


  • As long as your car is not lowered more than 2.5" from the factory height you will not have any rubbing issues with the NITTO Extreme Performance NT555R Drag Radial - 305/35-20 (05-17 All). I like this tire for the exact reason you described above, it will fit a 20" wheel but will still have a nice thick side wall. I think this tire will be a great choice for you.

will this tire fit on my 20x10 bullits? fit under my 07 GT? If not what is the largest i can go? The package came with 285s on the rear.


  • The NITTO Extreme Performance NT555R Drag Radial in a 305/35-20 will certainly fit on the 20x10 wheel. Depending on the amount which your vehicle is lowered and if any spacer is on the hub, it could cause some rubbing on the fender. If you could contact us at your earliest convenience, we would be more than happy to confirm the fitment on you specific set-up :)

    Sticky Tires!

    After doing a substantial amount of research on what tires I would be picking up it was between the toyo proxes and these bad boys. I'm glad I went with these as they have been a fantastic all around street tire. I have the VMP supercharger kit and these hook up in second gear very well. They look amazing and I'm always getting compliments on them. They do make some noise but it's nothing that's annoying. Plus when the engine is screaming you can't hear that tire noise anyway. I had to drive them through the rain a few times and I was cautious with them, but I never felt unsafe going around a corner. Obviously they are meant for dry traction but if you're smart with your right foot you shouldn't have a problem getting home if you get caught in a storm. An overall fantastic summer tire.
