Features & Details

  • Superior Traction and Reliable Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Directional Tread Design
  • Uses a Formulated Compound to Maximize Road Contact
  • Fits 1979-2017 Ford Mustangs
NT555. The Nitto NT555 is a summer-oriented, ultra high-performance street tire that was designed with the performance driver in mind. An excellent choice for the serious Mustang enthusiast, the NT555 is ideal for those who demand the best.

Superior Traction and Reliable Handling. With one of the largest contact patches available, the NT555 provides superior traction and reliable handling - without sacrificing tread life. Both the tread pattern and the compound were optimized for dry performance. The highly rigid tread blocks provide stability while prolonging tire life. The NT555 will get you off the line quicker in the straights and provide confidence in the corners.

Excellent anti-hydroplaning characteristics. The three-circumferential grooves channel water efficiently, while the lateral grooves break up the water wedge. This combination of grooves and channels reduces the chance of hydroplaning. Combined with an increase in tread block rigidity, a high modulus carcass, and hard bead filler, the NT555 delivers total vehicle control under all driving conditions.

Directional tread design. The tread pattern on the Nitto NT555 is designed for high-speed stability and superb cornering performance. High tread block rigidity secures stable contact with the road under all driving conditions.

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.

Application. The NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire is designed for use on 1979-2017 Mustangs. Please choose your size from the ordering options above. Sold individually.

NOTE: These are extreme ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tires. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in far superior traction over “all season” tires. Use during the winter months/cold temperatures drastically reduces traction and exponentially increases stopping distance as the compound becomes less sticky.

Will this tire rub on 2004? Fr500s Every tire place I've been to says that these tires are way to big for the front end , that without a doubt they will rub, they said that a 265/35-18 would be a little better, I'm just curious if there is any possibility of rubbing and put the myth to rest. My car is stock suspension and ill be putting on the black chrome 18" fr500s , thanks!

  • We've sold tons of these 275/35-18 tires for 18x9 wheels and haven't had any issues. This is the largest size tire that will fit without rubbing and clearance problems on the front and rear of the 99-04 Mustangs. Hope this helps!

Tire fitment on lowered '97 GT I recently purchased a set of your 18" Foose Nitrous wheels. The "best fit" tire size recommended on your site for '94-'98 Mustangs is 265/35-18. Can I get away with the 275/35-18s on all four corners or should I stagger the 275s in the rear with 265s up front? Would 285s fit in the rear as well? Thanks

wes320

  • The 275/35-18 would rub if you used that on the front of your Mustang. The largest you want to use in the front would be the 265/35-18. If you want to stagger, I'd suggest using the 265s up front with the 275s in the rear. The 285s are meant for 18x10 wheels. Hope this helps!

well these tires are only for the rear so you can only rotate left to right so i dont know how long tread will last

kevgjo

  • These NT555 tires are actually directional tires, meaning they can only be rotated front to back and can't be rotated side to side. Due to the size, you're correct in stating they can only be used in the rear. Therefore, these tires can't actually be rotated. They have an approximate lifetime of 15,000 to 20,000 miles depending on driving style. Hope this helps!

Would a 315/35/17 fit on my rear 2015 mustang?

CarlosM

  • A 315 series is the largest tire that will fit on the rear of a S550, however, just be sure that the wheel dimensions are suitable for a 315.

  • The NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 in 255/40r17 has an approved rim size of 8.5" to 10" so this would not work with OEM 17x8" wheels.

    Excellent Tire

    This is one of the best tires around for the money. I have replaced these tires 3 times already. I use them on a set of 4 Azev Type B 18x8 wheels all around on a clean 95 Tbird. I tried to get a different tire and many tire dealers told me not to mess with this fitment. I love the look and feel of these tires and the durability I mean youcan\'t beet them!!!!! at least not for the price you\'r paying.

    These tires are awesome, besides the nice aesthetics, performance wise I feel like I got my monies worth and then some. I live in Florida with a lot of rain and since I got these tires I rarely feel any slip, if there is any. Also, this size is perfect for a Mustang, it really transforms the look into something awesome.

    These tires are some of the best that I have owned for my Mustang. The grip is awesome! Cornering is must better and sharper. The tires look like they will last a while as long as I keep the burnouts to a minimum. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good tire.

    I put these 255/40-17 on the front to match the Nitto 275/40-17 on the back and I cannot believe how awesome these tires are! I had new BF Goodrich on before and they would break lose easy. These Nittos stick like glue and made my car drive better then ever. What also really surprised me that it seems to ride better? Go figure? I would recommend these tires and American Muscle to anybody. Great company and service along with great prices. These Nitto tires look awesome on my 03 Cobra wheels that I bought from American Muscle. Thanks,
