NT555 G2|The next generation of the NT555



Nitto raised the bar in the summer performance tire category with the introduction of the NT555 Extreme Performance. Nearly two decades later, Nitto set out to make the ever popular NT555 even better and claims the next generation tire, dubbed NT555 G2, will brake harder, corner faster and stop shorter.

You can take to the streets like it's a track day when you drive on the next generation Nitto NT555 G2. With its aggressive directional tread pattern, dual continuous center ribs and race-influenced compound, it delivers thrilling performance, stellar dry and wet traction and a longer lasting tread life, all at a great value. If you want great summer handling without breaking the bank, look to the Nitto NT555 G2.

Maximize the amount of performance

As pointed out in the NT555 G2: The Legacy Continues video, the block sizes are larger on the tread pattern for any size 275mm & wider to help maximize power to the ground. On the flip side of that, Nitto optimized any size 265mm & narrower to enhance the driving experience, controllability, steering response and brake distance.

Here are a few images showing the difference in tread block size:

265/35R-20 Nitto NT555G2



305/30R-20 Nitto NT555 G2
