Dry PerformanceCompetition PerformanceThe NT01 offers varying degrees of competition performance. The tire is molded at 6.3/32nds of an inch with large continuous tread blocks and sweeping lateral grooves. This set up can be easily shaved down to 3/32nds of an inch tread depth to function as a race slick with twin circumferential grooves.
ConsistencyWhen you're at the track, you want a tire that handles predictably and consistently. Nitto's engineers identified a combination of construction and compound features that reduces the negative effects of heat buildup. The high modulus rayon carcass, steel-reinforced sidewall and body-ply construction together give you the drive feel and confidence to push the tire to its limits.
Competition PerformanceThe construction design is enhanced for consistency and stability under racing conditions. The large shoulder blocks maximize the surface area contacting the road. This large contact patch increases dry performance while accelerating, braking and cornering.
Handling StabilityHigh modulus rayon carcass, reinforced sidewall and the advanced body construction combine to increase stability during braking, cornering and straight-aways.
Specialized Race CompoundThe road race compound balances dry traction, consistency, heat cycle performance, heat resistance and longevity to provide fast and consistent lap times throughout the life of the tire.

These tires will work as summer tires if you are careful in the rain with them. They can hydroplane but the rubber compound is so sticky that they catch immediately after the puddle. I've used several sets for track days and they are ideal for that. I drive to and from the track on them, sometimes over 300 miles each way. These are about the most road-able track tires I've ever used. When the treads get worn down, they have phenomenal dry grip. Keep pressures below 38 lbs hot. They get greasy feeling at about 40 psi.

I discovered these tires for my '95 M3 track/street car. I found them to be longer lasting than other R tires I'd been using and not as loud on the highway as the Yoko semi-R tire. They're quite nice on the street if it's not raining hard. Grip is unreal when the treads start to wear down. If you want a good track day tire that you won't have to replace every couple weekends, this is it. Some guys use them for daily driving too. They'll do that for a summer, then buy new again.
