A unique fusion of stiff sidewall construction and Nitto's popular Extreme Drag Radial tread design makes the new NT555RII an exceptional road course performer. Add to that its specially formulated soft compound, and you get a competition radial that exhibits impressive control and handling during severe lateral acceleration. Although the NT555RII is street legal, the tire's construction will offer a rougher ride when used for daily driving.
High block rigidity, soft compounding and large contact patch provide extreme dry traction in race conditions.
Two wide steel belts and two nylon cap plies stabilize tread for superior traction and handling.
Steel sidewall inserts provide control and stability during extreme lateral acceleration.
Spiral wound, jointless bead construction ensures high casing stability for superior control at high speed.
Low void ratio and large tread blocks optimize dry traction.
W- or Y-speed rated (depending on size), 6/32" tread depth, 100AA UTQG Rating.
This tire is especially popular with drifting enthusiasts.
Competition tires are built with a highly sophisticated tread compound. This compound is capable of sustaining traction throughout a much wider temperature range, but is also extremely sensitive to the first heat cycle of its use. During this cycle the tread compound stretches as it heats.
Our heat cycling system ensures consistent results by maintaining key conditions during the heat cycle process. The system generates uniform heating and progressive temperature build up throughout the tread. The benefit of this process is a tread compound that lasts longer and provides better traction. All competition tire manufacturers recommend a heat cycling service. Have your competition tires heat cycled today and be race ready!
