The 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 will get you off the line quickly, provide stability in the straights and confidence in the corners.

  • Large Tread Blocks
    Enhanced* traction for rear tires of vehicles with staggered fitments and high horsepower. Tire sizes with 275mm and greater section width have larger tread blocks in comparison to tires with 265mm and narrower section width.
  • Twin Center Ribs
    Increased* dry traction & straight-line stability.
  • Large Tapered Blocks
    Increased* grip capabilities & better cornering stability.
  • Circumferential Grooves
    Center grooves and shoulder grooves aid water evacuation and wet handling.
  • Reinforced Shoulder Treadblocks
    Improves* dry and wet cornering grip.
  • High Stiffness and Silica Compound
    A special bonding agent increases the interaction between all the compound elements to reinforce bonds for higher compound rigidity during cornering, resulting in better handling capabilities in both wet and dry.

I have gone through 2 sets of G1 555's and purchased the G2's believing the newer generation would be better. Unfortunately these have been problematic the moment they were mounted and driven. Immediately the road noise is awful compared to the first generation they hum and growl at all speeds. I've tried different tire pressure, re-mounting, balancing, etc with absolutely no change in the noise and awful road feel. Though these are supposed to be street tires they feel much more like knobby off-road truck tires. They sound as if you are riding over grates. I could not give anything better than a 1 rating across the board because if you can't stand the awful noise at all speeds, nothing else matters.
