Go with NITTO INVO's. I put these tires on my VMR 715 rims. 265 30 R19 in the rear and they look good. The wet and dry grip is excellent and there is little to no road noise.

invo's > 452's > 555's

that seems to be the general consensus here

haha cool. I was thinking about going with invo's but I'm tight on budget. BTW we got the same wheels! barely anyone has these wheels on this website.

I've been contemplating between Falken 452s and Yokohama S drives. They seem to have similar tread design. They are also similar in price also.

Yes, if you're looking for a quiet/comfortable tire for your daily driver, then go with the Invo. Search for it on this forum and read up on the reviews.

I just got the 452's today and it's been great so far, but we'll see what happens after some mileage.

I have falken 452's. I love the tire. Its a sticky tire so its hard to lose traction but you sacrafice some tread wear. I have 235(8.5 front) and 275(9.5 rear) no rubbing, no fender rolling.
