Nitto's first-gen drag radials yielded "best" 60- and 330-foot times of 1.672 and 1.659, and 5.183 and 5.202 seconds, respectively, in two attempts on the well-prepped Auto Club Dragway. "I used to run this tire religiously on the street and track," says Jerome. "This was the first time running the NT555Rs at a track that was as well-prepped as Auto Club Dragway. I believe I could have netted a 1.620 with more practice."
