Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tires I've had these on my C63 AMG since I bought it. They were halfway through their life when i bought it and I put another 10,000 kms on them since and they still have another roughly 3000kms on the rear and 8000kms on the fronts. For a tire that is basically a semi-track tire I would say it has done extremely well as a daily driver. Tread wear is dead even, grip is phenomenal. I have only 255mm on the rear which is a bit small for my car with 457hp, yet these tires hookup no problem at all, even when cold. I havn't pushed them too much in the wet, but they do pretty well considering how slick they are. I've never felt unsafe or a lack of confidence on wet, although there are certainly better tires for the rain. I think these tires are overkill for me as a daily driver, I never track it. So while I may not buy them again for this car, I would absolutely highly recommend them if you are looking for a street tire for max dry performance, or some occasional track use, good and treadlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Love these NITTO NTO5's on my 2020 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack. Went with 275/40/20's on all wheels. Great tires for Summer performance and knocked a little more than 1 second off my quarter mile time over the stock radials that come on it. They are not great in rain but you can't have it all. I'm upset that I have to hang them up for the winter and put my all seasons back on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent serious street and competition tires I had these tires on my 380whp dront wheel drive jetta and were the only tires that allowed me to launch hardin the strip with it. Handling and grip were outstanding even on track days. Now I mounted a set on my 69 Barracuda to handle the 500 ft lb of torque and they worked awesome as well. Fully recommend them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Tires for my sleeper Prius I drive a '12 Prius that's been k24 swapped and these tires work exceptionally well for what I use my car for. I race competitively in my local Dallas street racing league and these beauties hook up even from a dig. 10/10 great tire would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! This review is for anyone wondering if they should get a drag radial or some other tire like the NT05s. I have a supercharged 2006 Mustang with 25000 miles on it. It was dyno'd making 500hp to the wheels. Its a manual transmission with 4:10 gears and it absolutely blows the tires away in 1st, 2nd and 3rd and is quite scary. I've owned several mustangs since the 90s and drag radials have always been my go-to choice to keep the power to the ground. This mustang is definitely setup more like a road race car so I wasn't sure I wanted to go with drag radials this time. After a lot of research and reading reviews, I ultimately decided that a sacrifice in traction, going with the NT05s over drag radials would be better for this car and with the NT05s, no canyon was off-limits. So I went with 275/35/20s on the rear and 255/35/20s on the front. Well, the NT05s turned out to be nothing less than spectacular! I have hundreds if not thousands of 1/4 passes in stick shift mustangs and here is what I experienced. At normal psi, and no burnout (just pull to a red light and get ready) I can still roast the tires in 1st but now I can be very aggressive with reasonable traction. Then the magic happens... bang 2nd and at full throttle to red line, just a tiny bit of wheel spin at first but the tires will recover and I get full traction through 2nd (incidentally, this is the first time EVER, with any tire on this car, that I could stay in it full throttle in second gear!!). 3rd gear was great, not even a chirp. No track or every day canyon driving experience with these tires to report, but if the NT05s are this sticky under hard acceleration, I expect they will perform remarkably with cornering. So if you are like me, oscillating between drag radials and an NT05 (or any other tire that isnt a NT05 for that matter), my suggestion would be to go with the NT05s! You wont be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing I love the nt05s!! I am running a square setup, and theyre just amazing. I previously had the nt555 g2s, but the nt05s are just night and day difference. Grip is nothing to complain about on these. I take corners very confidently. They do take a lap or so to warm up, but when they're warm they're just amazing. I've put about 6k miles on them, and they still look brand new (car is very light). Easily my go to tire from now on!

Speed Rating:

The speed rating is a measure of what speed the tire can safely maintain for sustained periods of time. A higher speed rating will generally indicate that you will have better control and handling characteristics. Speed rating standards are established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Manufacturers assign speed ratings to tires after extensive performance testing. On the sidewall of every tire, you’ll find one of these speed rating codes:

M – Up to 81 mph
N – Up to 87 mph
P – Up to 93 mph
Q – Up to 99 mph
R – Up to 106 mph
S – Up to 112 mph
T – Up to 118 mph
H – Up to 130 mph
V – Up to 149 mph
W – Up to 168 mph
Y – Up to 186 mph
Z – (See Below)

What does ‘Up to 99 mph’ really mean?
Tires with a Q speed rating can safely sustain speeds of up to 99 miles per hour. The tire may be able to reach higher speeds, but traveling at speeds higher than 99 mph for any length of time would be unsafe - the tire is not designed to handle it.

What is a Z Rating?
For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a Z rating may appear in the size designation ...above 186 mph, a Z rating must appear in the size designation, including a Y speed symbol in brackets.

A Few Tips About Speed Ratings…
Never mix tires with different speed ratings, as this may cause serious handling problems.

We don’t recommend downgrading the speed rating of your tires, as the vehicle manufacturer has done extensive testing to determine which tires match the various driving characteristics of the vehicle. However, if you are looking for better handling, there is generally no problem in moving up to a higher speed-rated tire.

Most importantly: Put safety first. The speeds shown are test speeds; they are not recommended speeds.

Temperature Rating:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated A – B – C. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

Traction Grade:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA – A – B – C. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Treadwear Grade:

A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Looking for new tires with optimal traction? Or are long-lasting treads a bigger priority? There’s a simple way to compare tire specs!

The Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) system was developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assist consumers in the purchase of their tires by providing a standard grading system used by all tire manufacturers. Tire manufacturers use the UTQG system to grade their tires in three important areas: treadwear, traction and temperature. The UTQG grade for each tire is shown on the paper label affixed to the tire and is also molded in the sidewall.

Treadwear Grade – A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Traction Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA ABC. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Temperature Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated ABC. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

UTQG is a great way to compare tires from various manufacturers and between specific lines from the same manufacturer. Remember: The UTQG isn’t a safety rating and it doesn’t guarantee a tire’s mileage performance - but you can use the UTQG in conjunction with price, warranty, appearance and recommendations to make the right tire choice for your needs. If you have any questions about UTQG or various tire lines, the Big O Tires team is always ready to help!

Hauling groceries – or bricks? The Load Rating or Load Index indicates how much weight each tire can safely support.

Every tire’s load rating is stamped into its sidewall. Once you know the load rating, you can use the chart below to determine the amount of weight that one tire can support. Then just multiply the weight by four - or the number of wheels on your vehicle - to determine your vehicle’s maximum load-carrying capacity.

Load Rating Table

Sometimes the maximum load (for example, 1060 kg) will be stamped into the sidewall so that you don't have to decipher the load rating. Remember: never install tires with a lower load-carrying capacity than the tires that were installed on your vehicle by the manufacturer!

Load Range:

The load rating is a measure of the tire's strength — its ability to hold air pressure under load.

The load rating influences the sidewall strength of a vehicle tire. If a tire has a load rating that is too low, the handling of the vehicle could become unstable as the sidewall buckles under the vehicle's weight. Conversely, a much higher load rating than needed can dramatically harshen ride quality.

The recommended load rating for a vehicle's tires can be found in its owner's manual. It is also normally affixed to a sticker located on one of the vehicle's door jams. If you are replacing tires supplied with the vehicle from the manufacturer, the load rating written on the tires is an appropriate guide.

Sidewall:

There are other codes on some tires that provide you with additional information, some of which are specific to light truck tire applications. Some of the other codes that you might find on your tires include:

LT = Stands for light truck application. Example: LT235/85R16
C, D or E = Load range indication for light truck applications
REIN = Reinforced
OWL = Outlined White Letters
RWL = Raised White Letters
ORWL = Outlined Raised White Letters
B, BLK, BW, BSW = Blackwall or Black Sidewall
W, WW, WSE – Whitewall or White Sidewall
XNW = Extra Narrow White Width
XL = Extra Load Capacity

Section Width:

The linear distance between the outside sidewalls of an inflated tire without any load (exclusive of protruding side ribs and decorations).

Sidewall Aspect Ratio:

The ratio between tire height and width.

Important note on quoted prices:

Prices quoted do not include additional charges for sales taxes, mounting and balancing, valve stems, tire disposal fees, state recycling fees, tire protection plans and other charges. Prices may vary from one store to another or from one date to another. Tires listed may not be in stock at the identified store.

How Are Tire Sizes Specified?
The first number describes width of the tire (section), the second number describes the aspect ratio (profile), and the third number the wheel diameter (rim size).
Alignment makes a big difference in how long tires last, how much gas you use, and steering and safety. When you buy new tires, we'll make sure they're properly aligned with a free alignment check!

What is TPMS?


TPMS is an electronic system that monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are under- or over-inflated. Proper tire inflation not only boosts your safety, but also the life of the tire and its fuel economy.

TPMS

Some components of the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced due to wear and corrosion over time. Our TPMS rebuild kit includes all the necessary parts to service your TPMS sensor and keep this important safety feature functioning properly.
