The NT555 Extreme ZR is Nitto's latest ultra-high performance
summer tire designed for drivers of today's hottest sport trucks and SUV's. Engineered to provide maximum traction
and handling to go with outstanding cornering performance.
An advanced high-tech tread compound is made to increase dry and wet traction,
while also providing extended treadwear. Larger shoulder tread blocks and optimized tread pattern that features a
wider contact patch, enhance dry handling and cornering performance. The tire's directional tread pattern and
stiffer sidewall increase stability and steering response throughout the speed range.
Three circumferential grooves and angled lateral grooves channel away water on
rain soaked roads. This also reduces the risk of hydroplaning at higher speeds. Note that this is a summer driving
tire and not intended to be driven in winter weather conditions.
Nitto has incorporated tread block diversity which disperses pitch variations that
result in minimizing outside road noise and making for an increased ride quality.
Inside the tire you will find two wide steel belts to go with jointless edge ply
caps that add strength and stability at higher speeds. It helps keep you in complete control whether it is driving
straight down the road or hitting the corners. Nitto offers sizes ranging from 17-22 inches to go along with a

This latest Nitto high performance truck/SUV tire offers some impressive
performance. While not for everyone, especially if a soft, smooth ride is what you're after, the NT555 ZR provides
outstanding dry traction and superb cornering grip.
Grip on wet pavement is ok, but dry is where this tire performs to its highest
capabilities. Steering response is crisp and allows you to be in complete control. A nice surprise is how much more
quiet this tire rides than many other models in this class.
Treadlife is pretty good for the most part, but can be shorter than expected if
you're like us and like to give the tire all it can handle much of the time. Overall, this version of the NT555
does a solid job and we rank it in the upper half of this class.
Nitto provides a limited tread warranty on the NT555 Extreme ZR. Tire uniformity
is guaranteed for the first 1/32 inch of wear. Materials and workmanship are backed for 5-years and include free
replacement within the first 25% of wear. The amount is prorated for the remaining time period or until the tire
reaches its final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
