Nitto NT05R Review

Nitto NT05R is a Track and Competition tire

Track and competition tires are designed for racing enthusiasts to maximize performance on racetracks, while some are also suitable for street use. These tires are not meant for winter driving. Using slick type tread designs and specialized rubber compounds, competition tires are build for ultimate acceleration and cornering, but have modest wet capability and short tread wear life.

Nitto NT05R

Nitto NT05R is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed for serious drag racing enthusiasts. NT05R's specialized race compound and large contact patch were engineered to provide maximum traction and promote even pressure distribution across the tread. The enhanced sidewall construction provides longitudinal launch traction while maintaining stability throughout the pass. You’ll get off the line quickly and down the track with speed and consistency. The NT05R is recommended for dry competition use. Nitto NT05R drag radial works in unison with Nitto NT05 max performance street tire, so you can put the drag radials on the driven axle, and Nitto NT05 tires on the non-driven axle. When developing both product lines, Nitto developed sizing to fit modern performance vehicles. The large solid center rib provides a continuous contact patch for dry traction. The enhanced sidewall construction combined with high-modulus bead filler and large shoulder blocks increase straight-line stability. The new drag racing-specific compound was engineered for increased traction at the starting line.
