NITTO NT05R
UTQG: 00 B, B (All Sizes)

Click here for: Sizes, Specs, and Pricing on the Nitto NT05R

The all-new NT05R is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed for serious drag racing enthusiasts. The dual-purpose sidewall construction and the all-new specialized race compound enhance traction during launch and deliver stability at the top-end. This results in improved* consistency and controllability from the tire. The NT05R Will get you off the line quickly and down the track with confidence and speed.

The new NT05R Drag Radial will not phaise out the current NT555R Drag Radial. For those of you considering a street legal drag set up, the new NT05R Drag Radial will complement the recently released NT05 very well.


TECHNOLOGY

- New drag-specific compound specifically engineered for maximum traction at the starting line

- Large center tread block provides excellent dry traction and continuous contact patch

- Sidewall construction with high-modulus bead filler and large shoulder blocks increase straight-line stability








CURRENT SIZES


LL Indicates Light Load. Technical Information subject to change without notice. P345/30R19 scheduled for release March 2010.

I am thinking about getting the 285/40R18 NT05R and mounting them on my 18" winter rims... I would match up the fronts with the 275/40R18 NT05... I would use this setup on my SRT8 when going to the drag strip... I think the 315's would be too big for the stock rims...

Matt, how much will this cost me shipped to Toronto Canada... L1R3H1... Thanks!

How will they compare?

I am curious as to how these will compare to the NT 555R's. I've heard that the NT555r"s hook well but you have to do a helluva burnout. I've heard about 7 sec worth of burning. Doesn't seem like the tires would last that long. So I am curious as to how these will do in comparson. Someone chime in when they have a new set. Price of these seem a little higher too. I saw some NT555R's on ebay for 2/$570 a while back.

It would have been nice if they would have made the 17 series tires a bit taller.

Also will be interested in seeing what the results of someone running this at the track who used the NITTO 555 and see if there was a difference.
