Description

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.

  • Drag-racing specific compound provides maximum starting line traction
  • Enhanced sidewall construction with high modulus bead filler create straight-line stability at high speeds
  • Large solid center tread rib optimizes dry traction by increasing tire-to-surface contact
  • Large shoulder tread blocks further enhance high-speed stability
