I've driven both in the rain and the NT420s were better. I have the Invos currently and love them....For the money that is.

I was going to go with the nitto 420, but talking with a tire guy he showed me the nitto 850's. They are rated a 50k miles tire. I got 4out the door plus an alignment for 817. I've had them about a month, seem good so far.

I found the nitto nt850's on onlinetires.com. Says they are for a cuv aka a crossover vehicle. Don't know if the load rating is enough for our trucks.

NT850's have a higher load rating than the stock RSA. Granted not the exact same size, but similar to what others are running in BFGs.
