The Nitto NT05R tire is a D.O.T. legal competition drag race tire designed for the rear axle. It has a radial construction and delivers fast runs thanks to extra sticky R-compound rubber. When aired down, the Nitto NT05R tire has a huge contact patch that ensures the tires lock-up quickly for the fastest launch times possible. The Nitto NT05R tire has a slick center for incredible grip as well as reinforced sidewalls that can resist excessive lateral distortion due to the high torque and stress on the tire at launch.
