I have the nitto invos. They look sick as fuuuuu and there wear is pretty even and long lasting considering there pretty sticky too.

I will be buying Invos to replace the Invos I have.

I had 555's on my car for a bit, and they beyond sucked ***, at least compared to the other tires I've had on my V (GY F1SC, GY GSD3, Falked RT-615, Hoosiers).

I'm on my 3rd set of RT-615's. I'd recommend the Falkens based on my good experience with the brand.

Then again, if you are going with 20" rimz, you don't care much about performance, so you might as well get what's cheapest.

Da-Donka-Donk-Donk.

Each to his own though. I'd like to see the pics though. I'll eaither eat my words if they look good, or tease you

Seriously though, it's your car, enjoy it the way you want.

If you were a betting man, would you put money on eating your own words or go all in on teasing?

The latter.

I just put on Nitto Invos, I really like them. They ride very smooth and don't make noise. They also seem to have great grip, I hit 1.00 on the G-meter w/out really trying very hard.

Invo's dumdumdum... I run 245/275's, like stated above even wear... the NeoGens are horrible, other than the RT615's any Falken will have seperation issues.

Now I will bet good money and guarantee you will not have a 6" lip on those wheels unless you are running serious spacers and sticking them 4" past your fenders. Ignore the bling comments, I do not understand people who run 19" and then say 20" is blinged out! I run 20x8.5 and 20x10 and love how my car looks, I do not think they look to big. Now I understand 20" is not for a track car, and I do not have a track car at this point... So many "experts" here!
