Advan Sport Hands down.
We sell a lot of Nitto Invo but i think that this really has more to do with the price.
The Advan Sport compound in my opinion is very comparable to the PS2.

Advan sports is a solid tire for what it is, relatively quiet, fantastic compound, decent wear and unbelievable for high speed cruising.

Nittos are good tires, but not at this segment..

I agree with Julius. The Advan Sport is a much better tire than the invo.

INVO's suck from all aspects except noise IMO. Even in wear, for some reason my AD08's are wearing better than the INVO's I had. I'd go Advan Sport all the way between those two.

I had Advan Sport on my car before. They performed well on the track (benefited from a stiffer side wall vs. PS2) and no complaints on the road at all.

How many miles are on your AD08 now?
How would you compare AD08 with PS2?

Definitely Advan Sport. I tried to stay away from Invos because to me they really seem like a compromise tire. They are relatively cheap and most of the people running them on 20s are only doing so because the rounded off shoulder allows them to run wider sizes. If I didn't get the Vredesteins, I would have gone with Advan Sports or Conti DWs.

What has your experience with the Vreds been? Just curious since there are tons of reviews not only on this forum but others of people who have gone with Vreds and been ecstatic about their performance.

Disagree in the case of the Vreds - at least equal to PS2s at far less cost, from my experience.

I've tried them before, a long time ago on my E46, they were okay on the street as its hard to tell, but on the track they are not as good as the PS2s. For a street compound, I still find PS2s the best on the track. Again, on the street its pretty close but Vreds chunk and shread on the track while PS2s blister.

Any chance the Vred's compound has changed since you ran them (if it was a long time ago)? (I have no idea btw.)

Guess it depends on intended use as well as for the street the Vreds vs. PS2s sound fairly equivalent; track, not so much.

No they have not. Im not saying they're bad tires by any margin, they are great and espcially for the price its unbeatable. I just want the absolute best, and you still can't beat PS2. Its OE equipment on the Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari 599 GTO, all new street Porsche's for a reason. For a street tire, I believe the PS2 seriously cannot be beat. The track, thats a different story. I run Yokohama AD08 on the track, but Michelin also makes the CUP (not CUP+), and they're even better but Im not up to that level yet.

The Advan Sports are definately better then the Invo's. Although I do prefer the PS2 over the Advan Sports. Maybe it was my setup but I fount the PS2 had a better ride quality to them. Perhps the Advans have a stiffer side wall. Both have an excellent compound.

Not to jack the thread or anything but has anyone tried the PS3 yet?

Advan Sports(V103) is my favorite tire for street application.
I personally prefer this tire over PS2, and many others.
PS2 are good too but its sidewall feels much softer.

It has great road feel and ride at same time it offers excellent dry/wet grip.
