Nitto Invos

Dad just purchased a gt500 and he use
To have a zo6 and had the invos but they didn't last long at all possibly because everything is pretty much in the rear of that car . So my question is if any of u have them how are they holding up, and do you think theyd last on his new car ?

imho, they have a sticky compound but don't last and get noisy. Sidewall seems softer than other (and more expensive) tires. Nittos, Falkens, etc., are less expensive for a reason.

What about PS2 or RE050A or SO-2 A?

But the real question is what kind of tire is he looking for? Daily, track/spirited, comfort, wet, etc.? Tire choice gets very subjective. Do some research.....

No doubt the PS2'S are great tires, just not looking to break that much bread on them . The car is getting lots of other goodies

imho, tires are one of the foremost "mods" you can make. Tires can make or break a car. Unless you are really only into cosmetics.

Tires first. It's the thing that is between you and the road. And then work on unsprung weight (wheels)

I've been on PS2s for a long time (learned the hard way.) They are on both my cars right now.

Well the invos on the z06 performed amazing just the issue was they became quite bare after only a few thousand miles which was just ridiculous . Ive searched on some mustang forums and people seem to like them, no issues with uneven tread wear , getting bald to quick , etc. But i understand what you are saying 100% if i end up keeping my car im probably going to put some PS2'S on myself.

I just got the INVO's, they are a great tire so far. I haven't pushed the car yet.
