Mickey Thompson Street Comp vs Nitto INVO

Does anyone have any experience with either of these tires? I’m looking at getting them from AM in 255/40/19. The MTs $239.99 are cheaper but are the Nittos $274.99 worth the extra $140 a set?

Well I was gona go 255/40-19 but after some reading it looks like 285/35-19s will fit all around. I may go that route.

285's will work fine all the way around. What size wheel? I saw 19" but what's the width?

I just did a little research on the MT tires, they're owned by cooper and very similar to the cooper rs3-s, and those are excellent tires. The people that have then love them. Save yourself some money and give the mts a try, unless you need an all season tire. Then the invos are the way to go

I have the Brembo package. The ford spec sheet says they are 19x9 but I've read a few threads saying they are 19x9.5. ?

Nah, they're 19x9's. 285's on those wheels will be fine all around, with the proper offset you get even run 19x10's all around

Staggered wheels and tires will cause a "push" in the corners. But you would be fine with any decent all season. 255/40 and 285/35 19 should be pretty good. If you're wanting something super aggressive the maybe go 295 or even 305 on the rear. As far as tires are you looking for traction, quiet, tread life, cheap?

I have the Mickey Thompson ET Street Radial II - 305/35-19 on 10" rims and love them...its nice that there is no wheel spin anymore, you have to really want to light these up to get them to spin...!

Bias ply tires have a lot more sidewall flex than radial tires (which most street tires are radial tires). Most MT drs and slicks are bias ply. Are those tires DR's?

I'm only asking because I would like to know how they feel on the street while turning

They're radials. They're awesome on the street, like he said, really have to try to spin em. I was caught in the rain with em a few times, even on highway. They were fine, just drive like you know they're on there.

Nitto invos are not all season tires!

You are correct, I saw the tread pattern and siping on the tires and thought it was, the tread pattern looks convincing enough to be an all season though.

I have the BF 275/40/19's in the back. Wish i had gotten the 275/35/19's because the 40 tire is tall in the back and car sits up a little.
