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 Z-speed rating.
