I had good experiances with the riken raptors (245/45/17zr) for almost two years of punishing them and 30k, my fronts were still good not even close to the wear indicators, so they are hanging in a corner of my garage, but my bad alignment caused me to go through the rears sooner than I should have, then again my autocross events, burnouts, and heavy right foot with no tire rotations certainly didn't help. When I was shopping for new tires I stumbled upon a deal I couldn't refuse for the perfect size Nitto's (255/50/17zr invo's) so I snatched up four of them for 250 with approx 1k miles on them due to an idiot mustang owner on craigslist.
The tires on the SC wheels on the 95 are holding up ok but I'm hunting after a horrific vibration at 70mph+ on the driver side front, I'm going to have that tire rebalanced next week and see if it helps, otherwise I'll investigate the suspension components again. (Shouldn't be a problem with my unlimited access to an alignment rack all of this semester of college. (YAY steering and suspension class!)
Mean while my primary bird (Christine) which you saw when I picked up the 95 is undergoing open heart surgery (engine swap) so I can't really comment much on the invo's, lol for the 200 - 300miles I put on them they seemed pretty sticky.
