Nitto Tire was founded in 1949 as a small Japanese tire company. They were originally regarded as an underdog in the tire world, dominated by the likes of Bridgestone, Michelin and Goodyear. Even after Toyo Tire acquired them in 1979, they remained small and on the verge of bankruptcy. It took until the mid-1990s before they were able to grab a decent foothold on the market.
Fueled by a newfound infatuation from United States drivers, the company saw sales steadily increase into the 2000s. Nitto’s rebirth within the United States market has lead Toyo Tire to consider them an American company. Online sales backed by a strong Social Media presence have also attributed to the brands growth and popularity. With over 10 million followers on Facebook, Nitto continues to appeal to the North American market.
Backed by Toyo construction, Nitto designs tires for nearly every performance category.
