The NT05R is a D.O.T.-compliant competition drag radial designed for serious drag racing enthusiasts.
The tire’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.
A PERFECT PAIR
The NT05R drag radial works in unison with the NT05 max performance street tire, so you can put the drag radials on the driven axle, and the NT05s 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.
SPECIALIZED RACE COMPOUND
The new drag racing-specific compound was engineered for increased traction at the starting line.
