Nitto NT01 tire pressures and temps


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I have a 2000 Mustang and I just bought some Nitto NT01 track tires.


What is a good baseline cold and hot tire pressure for track days?


What tire temps should I expect to see across the tire? What is the best operating temp for these tires? Thanks

I have two friends that both have Mustangs (2003 Cobra 2012 GT) both run NT01. I believe that they run 28f and 26r. Those are good starting points and you can adjust from there to suit your driving.

Found this on the Toyo Proxies RA1 website. The Proxies are similar to the NT01's, so this info may apply as well. I've been running the NT01's for 2 years and try to keep the hot temp around 40psi. I acquired a pyrometer over winter, so I'll be checking the tire temps more closely now and hopefully get each tire at their optimum operating temp & pressure.


Toyo Tires recommends the following general set up guidelines for the Proxes RA1:

• Operating Temperature: 160°F to 220°F

• Hot Inflation Pressures: High 30s to Low 40s (psi)

• Camber: -2.5° to -5.0°

• Caster: As much positive as possible
