   Nitto Performance Tires – Life in The Fast Lane

At Steeda Autosports extensive testing on the racetrack and off is a matter of life as we strive to continually bring to market the best performance parts and accessories for the Ford performance enthusiast. Tires are no exception as we exhaustively test tires from virtually all manufacturers in the quest of providing the BEST tire available at any price. Our recommendation – only Nitto Tires !

No other performance tire line-up in the market today offers the performance capabilities that Nitto Tire delivers. Highest quality, outstanding performance, and cutting edge design make Nitto Tire THE leader in the performance tire market today and is the only tire manufacturer officially recommended and fully endorsed by Steeda Autosports.

Dario Orlando, President of Steeda Autosports states: “There is a substantial difference in performance tires today, much more than the average consumer would ever think there is. You cannot buy a tire based on the brand name your father bought – instead you need the proper tire design, compound, and tire pressure that will maximize your performance driving experience. I personally have tested Nitto Tires against all competitors and have found them to be the BEST tire available anywhere. I insist that they are standard equipment on all of our serialized performance vehicles as well on my personal vehicles I drive daily.”

Nitto Tire’s commitment is best exemplified by their Mission Statement which is a reflection of their history in the automotive industry and a look into the future direction of the needs of performance car enthusiasts: “Nitto Tire is fueled by the passion of enthusiasts. We fuse technology and innovation with creativity and art – Our tires celebrate personal expression and enhance the driving experience.”

They are no stranger to the performance arena as their venture of innovation and performance back in the mid 1990s. Included in their rich history was the development of what performance enthusiast’s needed in a high performance tire – the NT555, a combination of ultra high performance, aggressive design, and a long tread life. A longtime favorite of the Ford Mustang performance market, the NT555 continues to provide drivers with superior traction and reliable handling.

Building off the success of the NT555, Nitto has now released the all-new NT05. A street tire with competition worthy performance, the NT05 is the resulting product of extensive technological development and research. Beginning with proprietary computer aided design software, Nitto’s engineers were able to create a tread pattern with a large contact patch and yet still retain wet weather performance.

While development of Nitto’s NT05 continued on some of the world’s most punishing racetracks. Compound testing was performed at the famed Nurburgring in Germany, hundreds of road courses in the United States, and ultimately at Nitto’s own test track. Thousands of street miles were driven and evaluated to illustrate Nitto’s commitment to delivering higher quality products. In addition, Nitto’s patent-pending manufacturing processes in the United States and overseas produce tires with greater uniformity and balance compared to tires produced through conventional processes.

Nitto Tire develops performance tires for all uses, including racing, off-road and street applications. Using the latest state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing facilities in the United States and overseas, Nitto provides innovative and high-quality performance tires for the most demanding automotive enthusiasts.
