NITTO NT05 275/40/20


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried these on a super snake? They are 5mm taller than the standard tyre, does this present any issues?

 

I'm tired of playing with wider wheels and rubbing issues so thinking of running the standard width and going to a sticky tyre.

 

I can get these tyres very cheaply so even if they only last 5000kms I will be pleased as long as they hook up.

I used to have 275/35/20 Nitto NT05's. They were pretty good. First gear would spin out every time on the street. Second gear would always hook up. The hotter you get them, the better they stick. When you spin them off, they squeel very loud. I was able to get them to hook up in first gear while on a very sticky drag strip.

That is a tall tire for a lowered Snake. Stock is 27" and that NT05 is 28.62". Do you want that?

Take a look at the NT05 in 275 35 20 at 27.56".

 

 

I'm not surethat I can get the NT05 in 275/35/20 in Australia. The 275/40/20 definitely is available, I'd welcome the extra sidewall as long as I knew it wouldn't rub anywhere. How much extra height difference is there between a 35 and 40 profile tyre?

If this is on your rear Alcoa Super Snake wheels 20x10??

 

your front 20 x 9 can accommodate 255 to 275 35's

 

your rears (20x10) can accommodate 275 to 305's x 35's depending on the tire manufacturer. You have to look closely at the tire specs and may have to mix match "name brand" fronts & backs.

Aprox. 2.6 cm taller between the 35 and 40.
