    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 1979-2019 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.

    • 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

    • 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 need a tire that has the lowest road noise.

    • The NITTO NT555 G2 Ultra High Performance Tire and the Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire will offer the lowest road noise of the tires we carry.

    I would like a tire with a more beefy look. I currently have the Pzero 255/40/19 on my 2015 eco boost PP. I am curious as to what size would fit my wheel and give a nice and beefy look.

    • This would depend on what size your wheels are as well as other factors. Please reach out directly to our customer service department either by giving us a call at 1-877-887-1105 or by chatting in with our live support! We would be glad to help you!

    Will a 315/35/20 fit a10"wheel

    • A 315/35R20 NITTO NT555 G2 Ultra High Performance Tire will require a wheel with a width between 10.5" and 12". A 10" wide wheel will be smaller than Nitto's approved safe wheel size.

      Not really any improvement over the 555 Extremes

      Thought these would be an improvement over the 555s. But they aren't. Great in the rain, the ride's a little rough and the dry traction is fine if your driving a V6. Granted, my GT isn't stock, it's has Procharger at 10psi. But I thought these would have been an improvement over the 555Ext's that were easily eaten up. It hooks great with the M/T Street II's I bought at AM but they suck in the rain. If anyone has any suggestions on a summer tire that's got much better dry traction, I'm all ears

      STICKY! Grips Like Nothing Else!

      Best Mustang tires I've ever had and I'm 65, I have over 25yrs of Mustang driving. The car stays level on the tightest turns while accelerating into them. A ton of fun on rural roads that snake through hills. I may try a set of these on my Corvette. Tires are everything for getting on that gas pedal.

      Bought my car with these tires, had a bad tie rod and had to replace one the front tire set. Great traction, noise is low, ideal for a daily driver, tire is awesome for Central Texas weather conditions. Performs outstanding in wet conditions. Will be purchasing the rear set soon 295 40 18’s. Would definitely buy again.

      Great Compromise to Drag Radials

      Bought 295/18's and a set of 5 spoke 10.5 inch wheels. Fit with caliper covers perfectly. No tire clearance issues (Stock Ride Height) shouldn't be a problem with lowered cars... Went from blowing the stock size tires off in 1st and 2nd to a minor chirp with a 2 Step controlled launch and WOT Box. Had them on about 6 months. Very easy to order the right thing with American Muscles Reps Help.... Tires are perfect for me...
