    Is there anything going on with the NT05? I heard from a shop saying that very few distributors were stocking these and they weren't getting new stock in.

    Any truth to this?

    Thanks for the post ShadowFist.

    The tire industry right now is behind pace and a lot of tire brands and models are hard to find. Was there a particular size you were looking to run the NT05 in?

    Looking at 2x 275/35/r18 and 2x 295/35/r18.

    I heard that the 295's aren't expected for at least 1 or 2 months currently.

    I just got off the horn with Nitto and there is no ETA on the NT05 in either size at this point.

    In the 275/40-17 tire size, the NT05 max performance is available. Below is the link with our current mail order price.

    Is there a tire that is roughly equivalent in performance and price? I have a screw in mine (non-leaking) and the tread is getting low.

    Thanks!

    I have heard repeated complaints about the noise level of these tires. Any reason for this? I only have my mustang for daily driver duties and I don't particularly want a tire that howls at freeway speeds.

    Thanks again!

    This tire has wide voids for water evacuation so as the tire wears it will become louder. Given what you are looking to spend, this is the next best option. If your whilling to go up a littole in price, the RE760 can be ordered for $246.00 per tire and will run a little quiter when compared to the KDW NT.
