I currently run yoko s-drives which need to be replaced because the inside is really gone from the camber (pics posted this weekend) My driving style is spirited. the yokos were good for 35k miles on +1.5 deg of camber all around.

now looking for replacements.. suggestions?S-drives were fairly loud looking for quitier tire

size is 235/35R19 .

thinking.. Falken Fk452, Bridgestone 760sports, Toyo proxes 4, Nitto INVOs
Alpine + Dynaudio = Sonic bliss.

I would very much like your feedback if you do the 760's. I have considered them but ultimately, found more positive feedback on the older 960's so far, and I'm happy with those!

I just talked with a 300c SRT8 owner with Nitto Invo's and he was very happy with his. HE said they hook up as good cold as any of his past tires after he warmed them up a bit. They are soft though....i could almost stick my fingernail in them. He did say they wore a little faster than he would have preferred. I guess that's the price you pay for traction. Also, I have done a lot of research on the FK452's because I am wheel shopping now. I have read so many good things about them that I am set on them. It's not the best tire in any category, but it's strengths are spread high across the board. I like tread patterns on the Toyo Proxes 4, BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2, and the Yokohama Parada Spec-2.

I have a friend who rolls on the invos in a Mcoupe and HREs
the car hooks up with no problem even cold. My concern is
the treadwear and life of the tire. 800+ dollars isnt something
that you just do once a year ( well not me at least) and ive heard
some horror stories from friends about uneven wear on the
falkens in general

Ive narrowed it down to another set of the yoko s-drives
or to roll on the bridgestone 760 sports. I love the way the
yok's react even though they are a bit noisy. the bridgestonss
make me curious to try a different tire, since ive never run anything
but yoks on all my cars.

After looking at teh S-drives I was shocked at how similar the tread pattern was to the falken fk452's!!!
