I had them good traction didn't last long in limited street use, for the track I'm sure they are great
Anything other than track use tread wear will not last learned the hardway

I ran the NT05's and loved em performance wise. But lifespan wise, they aren't recommended for a daily driver. I only got 12000 miles out of mine and that was without doing burnouts or going to the track.

I need new tires too. I will be on my third set of p zeros in a little over three years. Daily driver 63k. P zeros don't last long

NT05 - excellent dry weather traction - A step up in dry performance over the Invos.
NT05Rs - drag radial - should be a track only tire.

But Invos are a better rain/harsh weather tire.


I have some friends that switched from Invos to NT05 and are pleased with the increased dry grip.

But as mentioned, the softer compound will not last as long as the Invos.

ADM built your 417 short block? Kim Barr seems to build most short blocks for all the tuner/hotrod/car building shops in the DFW area.

Kim was the king of the DFW streets during the early 70s. He can build a short block every bit as strong and detailed as Reher-Morrison. Reher-Morrison seems to build about 12 motors - with options. Complete motors is a good niche to be in as ANYTHING that goes wrong - they are the ones who will deal with it.

Keeping up with ever changing cylinder heads has become a specialty in itself. I got a set of swap meet special aluminum heads ported by a (Lee) Shepherd Racing Heads apprentice. He had to weld a crack, mill them due to them being warped.

ADM builds his own now and I believe before he had Lingenfelter do them. Either way ADM is the go to shop if you live in Texas in my opinion, I'm from Tennessee and it was well worth the drive to let Andy do my build!!

My buddy with Invos hated his tires with 600+ whp, dry and hot it still couldn't hold power. Life span was "ok"... I'd look between NT05 & NT555R. For dry performance but mine isn't a DD either.

my boddy runs NT05's on his boosted S2k. loves em. but like everyone else has said, the life span on them is very short haha.

i run Invos on my SS. love em for daily driving. great traction wet and dry. however at the track they do not hook for shit haha. i do like them a lot though.
