    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.

    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.

    My 2006 Mustang GT came from the factory with 255/45R18 front and 285/40R18 rear tires. I have since purchased AMR staggered 18X9/10 inch wheels. I've had 305/40R18 NITTO NT555R Drag Radials on the rear with no fitment issues on another set of AMR 18X10 inch wheels.. However, since these are now worn, I would like to replace them with NT555 G2 tires since they will last longer. Unfortunately, the NT555 G2 tires don't come in 305/40R18. Will 295/40R18 NITTO NT555 G2 tires work on the rear of my car. I need as much rubber as possible on the rear since I've upgraded to a Kenne Bell blower back in 2006. 1 answer

      Nitto 555 G2s

      Execellent grip, doesn't spin at launch as much as it did before. Good traction in rain at lower rpms from takeoff, have not hydroplaned with then yet. Great cornering characteristics as well. Over all very happy with theese tires. 255/45r18 up front and 285/40r18 in rear. Huge upgrade from 235/55r18 Firestone's on a all 4 corners.

      I live in the Arizona desert and these tires fit the bill to a tee! I don’t race my car and we have no winter. They are quiet and have plenty of traction for my needs. I bought 275x17s and they fit perfectly on the stock rims. Oh yeah, they look pretty good on my 99 cobra.

      I got these tires for my 2014 mustang gt. I did staggered 285 in the rear and 255 up front and it gave a pretty good stance as well as look to the car. Good Grip in all conditions and really grips while they’re new.

      Great street tire

      Great summer performance tire. I live in the Phoenix AZ area so I don’t have to deal with snow ice etc. I drive a 99 cobra and before I changed tires I thought my cross axis joints and axle bearings were going away. These tires fixed all that. Dead stable cornering, braking and accelerating. They’re also very quiet so far. For my mildly tuned snake these Nitto G2’s are great. Oh yeah, they look pretty good too
