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.

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

    These excel at dry traction and feel decent in corners. They are noticeably louder than the Michelin PS and give a little more in hard cornering. The tire does struggle in the wet but since LA doesn't see much rain so they are worth a try. They are visually a great tire. Still hard to beat the top brands like Michelin and Continental for summer performance tires.

    Great Summer Tires!

    Bought these to pair with my 18" FR500 wheels. Great ride quality and very little road noise! Traction is great on dry surfaces, but struggles sometimes to find traction on wet/icy surfaces compared to the Nitto all-season tires I took off my Mach 1. Bought 275/35/18s for the front, and 285/35/18s for the rear.

    Great in straights, don't trust in corners

    Have had these tires roughly over 3000 miles and they are really good at hooking up as long as you have some heat in them. Going through the corners I get little feedback along with massive understeer(F 285/35ZR19 R 285/30ZR20). The positive note is that they do hook well, absorb bumps well for being a summer tire and do great in rain.

    Got a staggered set of these for my Mustang and they are a solid tire upgrade over my previous set. Not only do they grip well, the tread pattern looks great too. If you're looking for new tires that will perform well in both wet and dry weather, definitely consider getting the NITTO G2.

    Unbelievable

    I purchased these tires (255/45/18) with a set of 18x9 AMR wheels. The grip and performance on dry pavement is absolutely tremendous and I haven't even driven them in temps above 70 degrees yet. What really impressed me the most was the wet traction though. About a week after install, I was caught on the interstate in a heavy thunderstorm (y'know, the kind that's bright red on the radar), and these tires didn't jump up on the water a bit. They stayed true and the car felt safe even at 70 mph. I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing these tires. You'll love them.

    Grip the road!

    I have never had such a change of heart about tires. These tires could change my whole car into the mad gripping torque infused muscle car it was meant to be! This made my pony what it should have been this whole time. Setup is 275 up front and 315 rear (Staggered) and its a beast you will not regret this purchase. I know I sure dont! I am now a loyal Nitto fan and will pay the price for quality. Thank you so much for making my GT grip instead of slide!

    I would recommend

    I have the Performance package Gt Mustang and yes you have to pre-order them. The wait is worth it. Overall stance look better than the Pirelles. The tires in the picture are from the rear 275/40zrR19 105w with the performance package wheel. There is no stretching tire or an unconvertible ride. They are directional. Price point was ok. Wet driving a lot better traction even in high watery area.

    Just the tire you need

    These NT555 G2's are incredible. Low noise, nice ride, and the spirited driving traction I need. Haven't spent any time in the wet, but the tread looks good for wet, considering this is a summer performance tire. These are WELL worth the difference compared to the Sumotomo or other common tires offered in the packages.
