What They Are: Nitto NT 555R Drag Radial Tires

Why They’re Cool: The tire that helped our Mk4 roadster do 11.50s in the quarter-mile. The NT 555R is DOT approved and provides impressive grip, control and handling. Although primarily a drag tire, the NT 555R can deliver up to 15,000 miles of tread life for daily driving conditions. The Summit Racing/Factory Five Mk4 Roadster sports 245/45R/17 NT 555Rs on the front and 315/35R/17s on the rear.

Features include:
• Slanted groove and lateral slit pattern offers water drainage for safety on wet surfaces
• Improved dry traction due to high block rigidity, ultra-high grip compound, and large surface area contact with the road
• Two wide steel tread belts and two nylon tread cap plies for superior handling characteristics
• Improved dry traction due to high block rigidity, ultra-high grip compound, and large surface area contact with the road
