Hello guys

I'm planing to get new tires for racing, performance and handling ..
I'm confused between 2 types of nitto tires, Invo and NT05
Which one is better ?

Plus, would it cause any harm to the gear or the engine if i run this size 20/40/275 ?


-SRT8 2010
thanks

Nt05s. 275/40/20 is perfect for the rears if you got a 9" wide wheel. Another words SRT. Will NOT recommend it for the front. I have the same exact setup on mine and DO track my car. But horrible wheels hop for drag racing.

275/40R20 Invos came on the rear on my car when I bought it with 15 K miles on it and they are not optimum for drag racing in my opinion. Mine are hard as a rock and I can spin them at will from any low speed roll.

Sorry for posting for late but I have to disagree with everyone against the Invo's. I had them on a C5 Corvette I owned and absolutely loved everything about the tires. Also a ton of Corvette owners go with them. A lot will criticize the tread pattern but if you go onto Nittos website and look at the technology behind the design, they are awesome. Good luck!

I love my Invos when the outside temps are above 60. The warmer the better actually. In Winter, the Invos are a little slippery. That being said I'm still very happy with them, you just need to realize they don't grip as well in the colder months.

Haven't run the Invos but have run NT05 and I loved them, but I've since moved on to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport for not much more than the NT05s.

The NT05 grip great once warmed up, the downside is they don't last very long. I got about 8000 miles out of mine including 3 track days.

looks great Cannonball! It looks like no issues with rubbing in the back either
If you have a 20x10 rear wheel with +25mm offset, you should clear without rubbing with a 315/35ZR20 Invo.
