    Cool drag or road race

    Well mitto desiged the 555 for the drag stri_ and the nt05 were desiged for road corses. Chevy high did a test on the nt05 on there z06 race car and they liked them said they could charge in harder and come out quicker than with the old tires but there setting a road corses car. Don't know how they would do on the drag stri_. They do offer a wide varity of sizes in both even a 305/35/20 which is what is going on the back of my truck 555 drag radial going to run 275/35/20 on the front.

    I highly doubt Nitto designed the 555R for the drag strip.

    If they did, their R&D department should all be fired...

    I'm looking at either the M/Ts or the NT05Rs. From everything I know, the M/Ts hook better but have the shittiest tread life. Hmm, decisions, decisions...
