Debuted this year in Russia, the North American tire brand Nitto Tire, owned by the Japanese manufacturer Toyo Tire & Rubber, presented two new tire models at the Moscow International Auto Show 2016 - NT555 G2 ultra-fast passenger tires and NT421Q premium tires for crossovers and SUVs.
The Nitto NT555 G2 tire guarantees powerful sports cars reliable handling and reliable braking performance. Enhanced traction, especially when installing tires with a profile of 275 mm or more on the rear axle of high-performance cars, will provide wide tread blocks. The double center rib enhances traction on dry surfaces and offers excellent directional stability.
Large cone-shaped blocks of the central tread rib with a symmetrical directional pattern are responsible for reliable grip and cornering stability. Deep zigzag longitudinal grooves in the central and shoulder areas effectively drain water and improve handling on wet surfaces. Reinforced shoulder blocks enhance the grip of the Nitto NT555 G2 when cornering on dry and wet surfaces.
And finally, another important technological feature of the new product is a special rubber compound with a high coefficient of elasticity. A special binder enhances the interaction of the chemical elements of the rubber compound and strengthens the bonds between them, which gives increased tire rigidity and, as a result, excellent handling on dry and wet surfaces.
The new Nitto NT555 G2 tires will be available in 10 sizes from 195/50 R15 to 245/40 R20 and speed indices V, W and Y (up to 240, 270 and 300 km / h).
According to the nitto nt421q review and manufacturer, the new Nitto NT421Q premium crossover tire model provides quiet and comfortable driving, optimal traction on wet and dry roads, and directional stability in cornering at high speeds.
The unique asymmetric tread pattern of the Nitto NT421Q with revolutionary three-dimensional multi-wave lamellas guarantees the necessary traction without compromising handling. Three wide water discharge grooves do a good job of evacuating water from the contact area, providing controllability and traction on wet surfaces.
A special small notch on the walls of the grooves creates an obstacle to the flow of air and reduces sound vibrations. These technologies provide a quiet and comfortable ride. In addition, Nitto NT421Q provides safe cornering due to the increased tread blocks along the outer edges of the tire, increasing directional stability.
The new Nitto NT421Q tire for urban SUV and crossovers is available to Russian consumers in 30 sizes for rims with rim diameters from 16 to 21 inches.
