D.O.T.-Compliant Competition Road Course Tire
The NT01 is a D.O.T.-compliant competition radial designed with the weekend road racer in mind. The compound was developed to provide the best balance of traction, consistency, heat cycle performance and longevity. The NT01 delivers fast and consistent lap times for both the professional road-racer and the track-day enthusiast.
The NT01 is recommended for dry competition use.
Proper use, handling and storage of certain tires in colder climates.
Features and Benefits
The NT01 offers varying degrees of competition performance. The tire is molded at 6.3/32nds of an inch with large continuous tread blocks and sweeping lateral grooves. This set up can be easily shaved down to 3/32nds of an inch tread depth to function as a race slick with twin circumferential grooves.
When you're at the track, you want a tire that handles predictably and consistently. Nitto's engineers identified a combination of construction and compound features that reduces the negative effects of heat buildup. The high modulus rayon carcass, steel-reinforced sidewall and body-ply construction together give you the drive feel and confidence to push the tire to its limits.
The construction design is enhanced for consistency and stability under racing conditions. The large shoulder blocks maximize the surface area contacting the road. This large contact patch increases dry performance while accelerating, braking and cornering.
High modulus rayon carcass, reinforced sidewall and the advanced body construction combine to increase stability during braking, cornering and straight-aways.
Specialized Race Compound
The road race compound balances dry traction, consistency, heat cycle performance, heat resistance and longevity to provide fast and consistent lap times throughout the life of the tire.

Suffice it to say that the grip limit of the NT01 is sufficiently high that we were unwilling or unable to find its true limit …
Import Tuner Magazine
The track is where the NT01 shines. The tire has a much higher grip ceiling than most street tires, and the edge of adhesion is very forgiving. In the near-stripped Civic, we tore through the cones with more speed than we thought capable ... On the WRX we discovered the NT01 is a very consistent tire, with excellent heat capacity for autocross situations.
… The NT-01s gave so much positive feedback that we felt comfortable using the throttle to get through the corners at a much higher speed than we thought possible.
