Nitto NT420S


The NT420S performance tire is designed for your truck or SUV. Available in many plus-sized wheel fitments, this tire is designed to complement both your factory original and aftermarket wheels.

The result is a comfortable, ultra high performance tire that helps provide year-round performance.

  • Silica-reinforced tread compound enhances tread rigidity for better wet handling and braking
  • Slanted three-dimensional tread blocks further enhance handling by reducing tread flex
  • Inner and outer shoulder siping creates versatile traction for various conditions
