Sorry to inform you, but those are not sticky tires. They are cheap so that is good.

Guess I'll defend Exyia here though he does not need it.

You're wrong. Invos are shit in comparison to stock tires.

Good say sir.

1. the stock tire is great.
2. that tire is crap you are confused.

Here are the standings from the Car and Driver Tests for Affordable Performance Tires. It barely beat some chinese crap tire so I guess there is that to feel good about.

I had the nitto invo before, they are good for all season semi performance tires you can drive them in heavy rain no problem, but sticky wise our stock tires are way better, and better cornering

In terms of grip, you can't realistically compare a 260 tread tire (Invos) to a 180 tread tire (oem yoko's). These are 2 different classes of tire.

That said, i loved my Invos when i had them, and will be going back to them next summer. Felt alot better than these Conti DW tires i have now (garbage soft sidewalls lol)

I gotta find the fucking idea fairy all these new guys talk to. Remember the next time you go to speak as if it were fact, ask yourself "Why do I think this? Did I read it some where? Shit was that a review or an advertisement? Fuck, is it empirical evidence or the result of peer reviewed testing? Do I really have enough information to sate this as fact?"

Then once you have your poop in a group post as such.

"I was blowing back cans of enviro-duster while masturbating furiously to furry/tentacle porn, when it hit me, Invos are better than stockers." Then at least we, and others, who find this thread know that this is an opinion, stated as such, and in the proper context, so we can just move on with our lives.

But the real question noobs should be asking before posting...
"Will saying this shit lead some other poor noob to taking what I say as gospel? Am I contaminating the overall information content of this forum by talking out my ass? Is my existence a positive thing for others?"

Im not comparing the tires side by side on paper, I'm going off of experience. Im not trying to convince anyone of what my personal preference is on tires but Im glad to see you dipsh!ts wasting your time trying to get the best one line zinger on my thread.
I was tired as hell when I started the thread so I understand its a little hard to read.
I had the tires on before the lowering and stiffening and right now I prefer the Invo's over the MR Yoko's. The Yoko's let me down and I spun out on a corner. I'll have faith in the Invo's until they let me down. I considered the AD08's but went with the Invo's due to the climate I live in.
Maybe I should change the thread title to "Everyone fight over your tire choice".

Hitting enter twice between paragraphs helps.

You should adjust/modify suspension to tire stickiness. The stiffer you go the stickier the tire you need. Yes going from soft to medium will either over-steer or under-steer depending on if you stiffen the rear or front respectively.

Just because you added suspension parts does not mean you are cornering better. Just starting with the springs first before the sway bars should have been the path or vice versa. I know just adding stiffer springs made a difference for me. But there was still some roll. I went to CO's and they were stiffer and the roll went away slightly. I know all this because I tested them both at the same speed at the same limits on the same tires.

From here on out just drive your car like you would normally. Keep an eye on tire wear and read up on the suspension threads. A lot of guys mention getting the roll center kit if you do any suspension modifications.

Stay safe. Good luck!
