  • Speed Rating: W - 168 mph

Nitto INVO. The Invo is Nitto's ultra high performance street tire that provides the perfect blend of performance, ride comfort and quality. Using state-of-the-art computer engineering and specialized digital testing equipment Nitto was able to produce a tire that reduces perceived road noise, provides a comfortable ride and delivers increased traction in both dry and wet driving conditions.

Superior Traction. The Nitto INVO features twin water-dispersion grooves and lateral slits to effectively provide traction in wet weather conditions while the silica-reinforced tread blocks deliver superior lateral and longitudinal grip in dry conditions. The INVO delivers superior traction and reliable handling control in spring, summer, and autumn driving conditions.

Asymmetric Tread Design. Featuring a unique asymmetrical, non-directional tread pattern, the Nitto INVO allows Mustangs owners with staggered fitments the ability to extend the life of their tires by rotating them from side to side.

5 Year Warranty. This Nitto Tire comes with a 5-year warranty from the date of purchase. Some limitations do apply. Please see the Full Nitto Warranty disclosure for details.

Best Fit: 18 x 9 Inch 2005+ Wheels

  • Speed Rating: W - 168 mph
  • Load Index: 95 - 1521lbs per tire
  • Tread Wear: 260
  • Traction: AA
  • Temperature: A

NOTE: These are extreme ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tires. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in far superior traction over “all season” tires. Use during the winter months/cold temperatures drastically reduces traction and exponentially increases stopping distance as the compound becomes less sticky.

NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire

    Good Feel

    May 27, 2014

    Rides nice, good feel of the road while not being too rough with the 18" Bullits.

    NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire

    July 25, 2013

    I have always purchased good high speed rated performance tires for my performance cars over the years but never had a tire that handles like the INVO. I was amazed at how much faster I was able to take turns that would have sent me spinning with my last set of tires. I guess that's the difference between high performance and "Ultra-High Performance". Great product NITTO. Can't wait to get them on the track.

    Great lateral grip! No slipping, no chirping.

    September 20, 2012

    I have these on my front wheels with drag radials on the rear. Compared to stock Pirelli tires, they are much more responsive and give you a much improved steering feel. The tires hold their own when entering a corner and I have yet to make them slip or chirp. From previous experience, these are comparable and probably slightly better than Toyo Proxes 4 but not as grippy as, say, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. The downside is that these tires are not as comfortable as the stock ones they make the car slightly stiffer. Tread pattern looks awesome though!

    NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire

    August 26, 2013

    Purchased this tire for my 2008 Mustang that I use at NASA events for DE Sessions as an intermediate tire before jumping to some UTQG Rated 100 or less. These tires are rated at 260 AAA and were a drastic change from stock tires that came on my Bullitt. The Invo's wear well and are predictable. There is good feedback at speed. I have 3 NASA DE Weekends on them with plenty of remaining tread left. I would recommend this tire to anyone looking for a forgivable tire that takes abuse at the track, but also needs to be streetable. They are very soft and do pick up small pieces of debri and sling them against the inner fenders:), but that's what we like to hear when we drive hard and fast!!

    Hug the road

    July 01, 2013

    I was a little skeptical about ordering tires on line. But after I put them on and took them out for a test drive I was hooked. Not only do the improve the performance of my 2005 GT mustang they look really cool! Getting back to the performance, I was amazed and how much better my mustang held the road around back country roads and tight turns. The highway performance was incredible! I would highly recommend these tires to anyone who enjoys to drive!
