The Nitto Tire brand entrenched itself in the hot late-model Mustang scene over two decades ago and since then, the company has grown by leaps and bounds and can be seen on any brand of late-model muscle car, as well as restored and restomodded classics, and more. The Nitto NT555 tire that started it all has been supremely successful, and helped launch a number of other Nitto Tire models, including the NT555R, NT01, and NT05. That said, Nitto is a progressive-thinking company that is alway looking at ways to better its product line, and with the NT555 having been around for about 20 years, the company charged its engineering team with improving the NT555 tire for another generation of automotive enthusiasts and the result is the Nitto NT555 G2.
The Nitto NT555 G2 is the next generation ultra high performance summer tire designed with the performance driver in mind. With increased traction, handling, and wet-braking capabilities, the NT555 G2 has been designed to get you off the line quickly, provide stability in the straights, confidence in the corners, and give your high-horsepower steed better grip during the unfortunate times you may get caught out in the rain. The NT555 G2 has also been engineered with specific interest in staggered fitments, something that is rather common in the domestic muscle car market be it late-model or classic.
Recently, ProMedia’s director of marketing and editorial content, Mike Galimi, spoke with Chase Mandes at Nitto Tire to get a bit more information on the new NT555 G2.
