I'm a huge fan of the Nitto Invo tires! They're a little pricey, but the handling and traction is awesome for a street tire. Although you're making almost 600rwhp, so traction is always a concern. I also like how they're still manageable in the rain, opposed to other performance tires.

My opinion of nitto invos is that they're good for the price, but I wouldn't consider them great. If you really want excellent traction from a street tire look into michelin pilot super sport, pilot sport 2/3, nitto nt05, Bridgestone potenzas re04 (I think), bfg rivals, bfg kdw 2's, bfg gforce super sport 2. Most of those will not give you a long life outside of the michelin's (they always offer pretty decent life), but for a summer tire I would not go with invos

From what I have heard, they are a great tire. I am planning on getting them with a wheel and tire package from AM next time I need new tires. Right now I am using Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires, as I read a TON of good things about them from corvette and bmw owners.

I've read on another forum that its tough to get more than 20K miles out of them. Can anyone confirm this or is it bogus info?

Ha I only got 9k mile out of my stock Pirellis. Then again they went through two track days. I'm interested to find out what the best bang for your buck is with a summer tire.

If goal is traction, invos are not what you want.

Toyo R888 and NT05r are going to be your best bet. The R888s' are better in the rain than the nittos. Toyo also makes a cheaper summer tire in the proxes 4 plus that I ran for a while. I could hook above 35mph on 20". That's saying a lot for a "cheap" tire at my power level.

If you have 11" wheels out back, you could even go up to 315 if you wanted to. Cruizin Concepts has CS1 wheels packaged with 315s

Im on 10000 miles and my pirellis are done. I will not buy those, they vibrate, hum, tread is almost gone. I was talking to several different people at different tire places here...They all said "Get the Invo's"! Nothing else is comparable except the Pilots but they are $$$expensive.

I'm running 305/30r19's on my forgestar cf5's, 19x10 wheels. There's a decent bit of overhang so I have no doubt that they would for an 11" wheel perfectly. Michelin pilot super sport is what I would recommend for traction and mileage

Did you add any spacers to push your rims out for your aggressive stance?

Yes, I currently do.
Also have NT05r. Both are great. 888s' are better if caught in unfavorable weather.

I have Nitto Invo's on my 2011 GT. They are 275/35-20 on 9-1/2" rims and 315/35-20 on 11" rims. I have 9k miles on them so far and am super happy with them. They are not showing much wear at all at this point and I am certain I will get 20k out of them before I look to replace them. My car is not tracked, but is definitely a back roads brawler and is driven hard (not a dd) and I have nothing but good to say about them. Wet traction is acceptable and certainly better than the MT drag radials that preceded the Nittos.

How many miles do you have on your Vredestein tires? I bought them with a tire and wheel package when I had my G35... They looked great and drove great, than I started getting a really bad wobble. I though maybe I hit a pot hole to hard. Had the car aligned and it was still there. Took the tire off the rim, and the tire was separating on the inside... That could have been a disaster... That was about 12-15000 miles later..

Currently I have 20,000 miles on them. I believe I can still get another 5-10k out of them, and I run them pretty hard. I'm putting out roughly 450 rwhp and I can spin in 1st and 2nd on a hard launch, but that is because they are only 255. If you can learn to launch without putting the pedal to the metal, they will grip very well. I plan on getting 295 or 315 next go around. They have been wonderful so far. They don't grip all that well in the winter, but what else can you expect from a performance summer tire. In the summer the tires grip very well. I'm shocked you had an issue with your tire. I haven't had a single issue with mine.

Well I didn't think I did either but it's not something you could have seen, from looking at it. It was fine started to wobble on the way to work... When I left to go home it got worse so I took it in the next day.. They did an alignment on it and it still did it pretty bad so the took the tire off and you could see it separating, said if I would have drove much more on it it would have been bad.. Oh well it's over, got different car with different tires and I love these tires.. Just remember to have them look at the inside of the tire if it ever starts to wobble .. I'm sure they will be fine..
