If you drive a 2011-2012 Ford Shelby GT500 with the optional SVT Performance Package or are fortunate enough to own the 2013 model, you'll be pleased to know that a new tire choice is available for your staggered 19" and 20" wheels.
Previously the only matching tire available for the 265/40-19 front size and 285/35-20 rear size was the Original Equipment Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2. Although not a bad performer by any stretch, many customers had expressed a need for an alternate tire up to the task of harnessing the massive power and torque these vehicles produce.
Recently, Michelin released the Pilot Super Sport in these two staggered sizes and has since been the tire replacement choice for many of my customers. Close in price, the Pilot Super Sport boasts excellent performance test figures and is currently our top-rated consumer favorite. Although no street tire can resist wheel spin on a 650+hp RWD car, these Michelin tires represent an excellent available performance option when considering a replacement set of rubber on your Shelby.
