I'm about to throw a set on mine too. I know not many people have these tires when my buddy ordered them for me he said the front tires came from Rome lol I'm just waiting to get a chance to meet up with him and give him my wheels so he can mount and balance them for me

I'm curious to know how they hook on our cars, I always thought they was more of an import car tire. They don't look like they have much tread but I like nitto.

Re: Nitto Invo's

How well will they hook compared to the nitto drag radial? I wonder if you take this same tire shown in the thread pic and heat it good at the strip will it let you launch? Bet not very well but for sure better than just decent street tire.Has anybody had success at track with these? If so what pressure you pull in with and how much heat?Just little spin or smoked them? Whichever being..... what RPM were you able to launch without breaking loose? NT05R seems to be the ticket or Mickey thompsons

Re: Nitto Invo's

No real street tire will hook like a DR will. Specially with 5000rpm launches. Or high HP.

I wish I could just get drag radials but I can't afford to replace tires that often being a DD and all.. I had seen several people say that these tires were pretty good so thought I'd give em a shot.. I just wish nitto made a 275/40-19...

Re: Nitto Invo's

On a competing forum a Saleen owner claims to lay down 1.71 60s with his INVOs.

They get mixed reviews it seems for high HP traction.

Also, shouldn't you have asked about traction an dtread life BEFORE buying?

Also matters what you consider high HP. I can roast my invo's with a 50mph roll. But I make mid 600's.

Are you just looking for something to argue about? Lol. I wanted to try these tires regardless after seeing several good reviews and comparisons..

It is hard online. I was just being sarcastic since you already owned the tires. That is all.

Perdoname?
