The NT555RII is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed with additional flexibility for the weekend drag racer. The high-grip compound and semi-racing construction provide increased traction at the starting line, while the large circumferential grooves aid wet handling on your way to the drag strip. The NT555®RII Drag Radial Tire works in unison with the NT555®G2 Summer Ultra High Performance Tire, so you can put the drag radials on the driven axle and the NT555®G2’s on the non-driven axle. When developing both product lines, Nitto matched the tread pattern and sizing to fit modern performance vehicles. The sidewall construction has been modified to improve launch for better 60’ times The large twin center ribs provide a continuous contact patch for dry traction. NT555®RII features race compound for increased traction at the starting line.
