I've had bfg kdw 2, falken fk452, and the hankook v12. The hankooks are by far the best. I daily my cars but sprint on occasion. The hankooks had 10k of mostly highway driving and they literally still looked brand new. They also are the best in the rain. Bfg and falkens didn't last too many miles

Nowhere near as wide, probably picture angle.

I think the majority have gone with Hankook V12's and been happy. I vary rarely see bad comments about them. Only thing is the sidewalls are on the soft side (not sure if they're softer than INVO's since I've never run them)

Invo have a VERY hard sidewall IMHO....they are a xtra load tire.

Yep, i am running square nitto invo and mark them with chalk at the track, no roll of sidewall, pretty stiff.

Like Rob, for traction at high hp going with Pss as next set, not sure if I should get staggered 9.5 rim with 265 at rear or stay square 245

I've been happy with the Invo's on the E90. Coming from RFTs before that, they absolutely transformed the car and made it quiet and comfy. They're definitely softer than RFT's when pushed and turn-in was a smidge less confident, but it doesn't really matter on the street. I'm not sure the miles I put on them and I'll have to go check the paperwork, but my rears are pretty much down to the wear bars and it felt quicker than on RFTs.

I don't have direct comparison, but the Z4 came with the Hankooks and I've been very impressed. They are not as compliant as the Invo's, but they handle really well and have great road manners. I'd buy them again.

I'm not sure that helped since my experience with both is on different cars. That said - you're really choosing between two great tires. I'd say Invo's have the comfort bias, and the Hankooks are better handling, but it's close and you won't go wrong with either one.

So it looks like great reviews on both tires. I'm glad I really cant go wrong with either!
