I had them on my LS460 as well as my 600HP Supra. They are not bad. On the track, the sidewalls flexed a lot. It feels like it is going to come off the rim. Pumping up the pressure from 35 to 40 fixed this quite a bit. The tires are also quiet. It performs pretty well in the rain (although I don't go crazy) I think the PS2s are better, but throw in the price and the Nittos look good. I just got a set for my E46 which I will track next month. I will update this thread then.

The PS2 has a lot of flex too, are these any worse than that? I really want a tire with a hard turn in...I had heard that these have a stiffer sidewall.

As long as you guys & other customers from FL & other rainy areas are happy with them, then cool

Ive had nitto's on my past 5 sets of wheels from vettes to my bmw335i. They are awesome tires. Very quiet, handle great, and wet traction is great!

It hasn't been raining much down here lately but I have driven a good amount in the rain and I have no complaints at all. Driving in the dry is amazing though and the performance is amazing to say the least. Haven't noticed the any flex on the side walls but I will look into it....

Glad to hear the very positive reviews from different members (as opposed to just a particular member or company). I have these on order as well to go with my 360 Forged wheels and was worried their performance would be subpar compared to more expensive tires. Seems that is not the case!

I have a set of 2.85 rears, just need a set of fronts for when the PS2's wear out. What's the best source?

To be honest i can hardly notice a difference, in a good way. It seems like the INVO's are very quiet and have a slightly softer ride. I have noticed when pushing the car the INVO's seem to have just a slightly softer sidewall. But nothing at all to reduce the performance compared to the PS2's. For the price nothing can even come close. Also the wet traction for the INVO's is really good! Which in Florida is a big plus.
