Time to buy some new tires for the car and I have them down to these two tires. If you guys had to choose between them, which one would you get and why?

I've had both. Between those two, the Invo. However, when the NT-05 came out, I switched to it and it's tons better than either.

I have NT555 G2's on the Genesis. Not exactly the best in wet conditions (need to keep TC turned on) but hot, dry days....I love them. LOTS of grip and the handling is perfect for my needs.

Between NT555 and INVO, 555 are a little grippier and INVO are quieter. I prefer INVO.

A buddy of mine had the invos on his mustang and he said they wear down pretty fast. He had to replace them after 2 years of just normal driving, no burn outs or track use and his alignment was perfect.

I like the 1st gen NT555's. They had better handling and a cooler tread design on them in my opinion.
