I have Invo's on my '11 GT. 275/35 and 315/35-20's.

They are not too bad on wet pavement (still gotta be cool, tho) and suck below 50 degrees.
My car is just a toy, not a dd, so I love the Invo's.

Did you need any spacers to run that wide in front and back?

We bought the Alcoa Shelby 50th anniversary wheels. I was wanting to go as wide as possible with 275s or 285s in front & 315s in back.

Anybody run tires this wide on the Supersnake wheels?

I don't think you can run a 285 in the front. Could be wrong but they just might rub

brembo wheels have a 45mm offset, mine will be 32, your fronts are 24mm. Your rears I think you can run a 305 as it lists a 35mm offset.

might want to get some other opinions. I am still newer to this wheel stuff and still learning

Do 275/295 or 275/315, i have 275 and 295 with a 9.0 and 10.5 rim, and 285 will look retarded.

Thread update

So I went ahead and bought the Mickey Thompson Street Comps in 255/40/19 mounted on black AMR 19/8.5 wheels. They should be delivered sometime next week! I'll post how they perform.

you wont regret the mickey thompsons, no joke, you have to really try to spin them to get them to break free, they stick like glue and lately its been raining here in florida and the wet traction isnt bad, ive had zeero issues, but you do have to be gentle on the throttle....

I have invo's on my car can't complaint but the only down side is I'm running a 19 inch rim so tire selection is slim. I have 275 35 19 in the front and 285 35 19 in the rear I can't really complain just wished they made a 295 or a 305 invo oh almost forgot I'm running 19x9 in the front and a 19x 10.5 in the rear. Any thoughts on running the kdw2 I might try them my next pair of shoes

My car is just a toy, not a dd, so I love the Invo's.
Wish my car wasn't a dd so I could get the Invos

I just hate when I try and launch my car and I have 5 grand under the wheels causing me too loose traction

If u look a Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo, Aston Martin, Audi R8 and all other super cars have 245 and even 235 front tire. Big front tire will slow you down and give worst mpg. Now rear tires are a different story. The biggest front tire of all super cars are the Bugatti at just 265 lol

New camaro has 305 fronts

Also all those cars you mentioned have dramatically lower center of gravity than any of our mustangs ever will.

That lower center of gravity allows them to run smaller tires and still stick to the ground well. Ours being much higher a wider front tire will stabilize the car better. For track courses anyway. Drag racing not so much.

Have you pulled up next too a corvette? They are way lower cars that have lower center of gravity. They sit a good foot or more lowrr than our cars. Mine is loooow and i still feel like a giant next to corvettes, ferraris and lambo and specially porsches. We have them all here believe it or not. There is an audi R8 or two running around as well. Just rarely see those. You are just pushing my point. Also, what you feel and what is are two different stories.

Been running 285 on all four corners for a a few days and can already feel the car much more stable in windy roads. Turning is spot on. The camaro is a track car and they put 305 on it for that purpose.

U could be right but for my street car when I drive it 10/10 on the edge I get very neutral balance that I feel will be upset if I run a wider rubber in the front.
I could be wrong but as a driver at the track for my car I don't want anyone more front end grip.

Joyride, there is a guy in another forum running 20x10's with a +48 offset and 305's on all four corners. He said there is a slight rubbing when turned all the way but its just the tire rubbing the plastic fender well.
