    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 1979-2019 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.

    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 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

    • 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

    • 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?

    • 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.

      Got Grip?

      One of the best road traction tires I have ever purchased. I can easily take a 45MPH corner at 105 and pull out at 115 in my 1995 GT with a stock suspension set up. The only draw back is that I now have a much harder time trying to burn out, guess I need supercharger...don't twist my arm....

      Great tires

      Haven't put many miles on them, but I have been pleased so far. The compound seems hard in order for them to last longer and traction is good as well. Tread pattern is nice and sidewall looks great.

      These tires HOOK!

      I have always went with goodyear eagles (hated the price) or summitomo z tires(a lot cheaper but didn't last long). These tires have a good price in between with superior traction. They really dig in cornering. Take her easy if temps are below about 40 though as they take a little to warm up.
