    NT555 G2. Does your high-powered Mustang ever feel loose or unstable during rapid acceleration or when taking a corner at speed? If so, it may not be your suspension, like you think, it could be your tires. Poor tire traction can greatly affect the handling performance of your Mustang. If you find yourself in this scenario you should invest in a set of Nitto's NT555 G2 Ultra High Performance Summer Tires. NT555 G2 Tires were engineered especially for spirited drivers that demand excellent traction in both wet and dry driving conditions.

    Directional Tread Pattern. The Nitto NT555 G2 features multiple tread innovations that make it a best-in-class performance tire. Twin center ribs provide better dry traction and straight-line stability. Large tapered blocks increase grip and cornering stability, and circumferential grooves aid in water evacuation and wet handling.

    High-Silica Compound. Nitto NT555 G2 Tires are made using a proprietary high-silica compound. Nitto uses a special bonding agent during their manufacturing process to increase the interaction between the base compound elements to further reinforce their chemical bonds. This specialized bonding agent helps create a tire with a higher compound stiffness which results in better cornering performance in both wet and dry conditions.

    Application. The NITTO NT555 G2 Ultra High Performance Tire is designed for all 1979-2018 Ford Mustangs.

    NOTE: This is a high-performance tire intended for use during summer months or warm temperatures only. Use during cold weather will greatly reduce performance, traction and handling, and greatly increase stopping distance. If using this tire in a drag or track environment during cold weather, we strongly recommend performing a pre-run burnout to nominalize the tread compound's temperature.

    Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order for an additional fee. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive. We even offer Free Nitrogen tire fill.

    • State of the Art On-Site Tire Facility
    • Scratch-Free Mounting Process
    • Environmentally Friendly, Lead Free Wheel Weights
    • Free Optional Nitrogen Tire Fill
    • 1 to 2 Business Day Turn Around Time on Most Orders

    Free Nitrogen Fill! AmericanMuscle is pleased to offer FREE optional nitrogen fill on wheels and tires that are purchased together on the same order. Filling your high performance tires with nitrogen has many benefits including:

    • Improves Fuel Economy
    • Reduced Weight
    • Maintaining Constant Tire Pressure throughout the Year
    • Prevents Corrosion to Preserve Wheel and Tire Life

    Will a 275/40 fit on my stock mach 1 wheels? I beleave they are 17x8, I only need the for the back, thanks.

    Wes

    • A 275/40r17 will not fit on a 17x8 wheel. You will need between a 9" and 11" wide wheel.

    Are these super sticky like a drag radial or comparable to the P zeros that came on my 2014 mustang? Thanks

    Waden

    • The NITTO NT555 G2 Ultra High Performance Tire is a high performance summer tire, similar to a Pirelli P Zero tire, though offering more traction, and a world above the Pirelli P Zero Nero all season tire. These will not have the ultra soft, fast wearing compound of a drag radial.

    I have a 2009 GT500, lowered 1.5 with Steeda springs. On black Friday I ordered chrome SuperSnake 20x9 and 20x10 for the rear. Will 295-35-20 fit or should I consider 285-35-20? Will 305-35-20 fit? I want to go as big as I can but don't want any issues. Thank you in advance.

      Nitto G2's

      I bought the tires as part of an 18" tire package and they seem satisfactory. The traction in the dry and wet does not match the Bridgestones they replaced, but the price was not nearly as much either. Seems like a good value, but not a max effort handling tire.

      Good tires

      I have the 255/35/20s in front and 305/35/20s in the rear. These tires are a huge step up from the stock Pirellis. They are much stickier and the car handles much better. Only drawback to these tires are that they are very slippery on wet surfaces. I live in a very dry state so it doesn’t matter too much.

      Great tire.

      I was a huge fan of the 555’s and then they went away, then I got a bolt in my rear passenger 275s. My wife said I was visible angry and upset when Nitto said they were no more and I couldn’t find them anywhere but after a lot of reassuring from Nitto and some chill pills, I purchased the G2’s. Well I’m happy to say Nitto did not let me down, great handling, great wet/dry grip and looks good!
