D.O.T.-Compliant Competition Drag Race Tire
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.
Features and Benefits
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 rear axle, where rear-wheel drive vehicles need the most traction, and the NT05s on the front 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.

At the end of the day, we dropped a tenth of a second in our 60-foot time, which allowed the car to improve from a 11.11 to a 10.80. Having the extra traction allowed for a more aggressive tune that improved elapsed times as well.
Super Chevy Magazine
In the end, the Nittos held the slightest of edges in both 60-ft time (1.77 vs. 1.786) and elapsed time (11.068 vs. 11.110). This gives them bragging rights for this story, but the real battle will be found in actual competition.
