Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Mustang Covertible - quick with 6 speed manual transmission so I want a lot out of a tire. The Pirillis Zero Neros I had were loud, rough and poor wear. Tire Rack guy steered me toward the new Continentals tires. He was 100% correct they are Pure and nearly perfect. Yes I may have given a little on performance handling but I gained a lot in getting my wife...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Michelin PSS is an amazing tire, and worth the money. I went with the stock size, 235/50/R18 for the Mustang GT. Compared to my stock BF Goodrich KDW, they made a completely different car. It turned my sloppy muscle car into Porche. However after 7,000 miles, they're already past the wear bars. I do drive it pretty hard in daily driving, and do 2 - 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I cannot speak to the longevity of this tire but I'll assume that the majority of people looking at this tire are much more interested in performance than longevity anyways. To put it simply, I LOVE these tires!! I was very pleasantly surprised with the wet traction capabilities even before I was able to really test them at the track. I run what they call...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I purchased these tires when my OEM Yokahoma tires were worn out. I was told that these were great tires, as they are OEM for BMW's and other high line cars. I was highly disappointed. Within the first 18 months, one tire began cracking, I guess from the Florida sunshine, had to be replaced. Numerous times after a light rain, I would fine my Mustang...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Do you want to go fast in an SCCA Solo class requiring 200TW tires? If you do, then buy this tire if it fits on your car. These are simply the best tires for autocrossing you can buy this year for SCCA CAM, Street or Street Touring classes. I have a set mounted on 10.5 inch rims on my Mustang competing in the CAM-C class. Pretty much everyone driving...  Read More

More Grip for Your 2015 Ford Mustang Fastback GT Performance Pack

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

New Lightweight Track Wheel from MOTEGI RACING

Anyone who has spent a Saturday at an autocross event or a road course knows that lighter is better. Lighter is especially better when referring to unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is anything not supported by the suspension of your vehicle such as wheels, tires and brakes. As one of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades, a set of dedicated lightweight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

OEM Tires on my 2013 Mustang with Track Pack. 3.73 rear end with 420hp. I drive 70 miles round trip per day. 2/3 highway. I only expected to get 20k miles out of the tires based on reviews, and am very pleased that I have 29k on them and a few more to go. I drive hard - acceleration, braking, and cornering, but if you don't light them up, they will hold up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

A great snow tire at a reasonable price. Went to smaller width/higher profile on speed3 & did great through this tough winter. Also put a set on my daughter's Mustang & made a huge difference.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Let me start by saying that the Mustang GT should have never been sold with 235's on it. I upgraded the factory 235-50ZR18 P Zero Nero's to the Sumitomo HTR Z II in a 255-45ZR18. The upgrade to the 255 Sumitomo makes the car so much more enjoyable to drive. I've only put 100 miles on them so far, but the difference in traction is phenomenal.My car is lightly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

1. Bought these for HPDE events and weekend driving. The car is a heavily modified '07 Mustang GT so handling and power is on par with a Boss 302. 2. Replaced a set of RE-11s that served well on HPDE days over the winter. The car also ran Hankook RS-3 v2 and Dunlop Star Spec I before in similar weather this past weekend (50F87F).3. On a tight fast course...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

From start of use to now (7200 mi) this is the quietest tire I have used. Quiet on all surfaces. Quieter than the howling Firestone M&S tires that came on the van. Traction this winter has been superb! I plan to purchase for our Mustang next fall. Have used Micheline Alpin Primacy Snow tire before on both Sienna & Mustang. This Blizzak WS80 is SUPERIOR to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (W-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires for my son to put on his 2005 Mustang GT. Past tires have not provided near the mileage I had hoped for but these tires have lasted longer than any tire I have ever bought. To say my son drives this Mustang GT in a most spirited manor would be an understatement. However, these tires have met a most challenging environment and have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

Many will post reviews after perhaps 3000 miles on a set of tires. With the EXCELLENT longevity of these tires, this is in the interest of public service.My Mustang is a 6-speed manual with 3.73:1 gears with over 435HP - with a tune - so, bear this in mind as you read. I have 3/16 tread left, and perhaps a few thousand miles left on these. ;) I spin them all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Purchased Pirellis for my son's BMW. Wanted reliability and performance , these tires are great improvement over Conti's they replaced, very quite, smooth ride, better handling. My 2013 Mustang GT came with Pirelli P-Zero and performed well in all weather.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

I got these because my driving style was burning up the stock LRR tires on my Volt. They exceeded my expectations for the price and I think they are perfectly comparable to the Michelin PSS and are considerably cheaper.I can now take corners at higher speeds in the rain than with the stock tires in the dry. I also autocrossed the car when my STU Corvette was...  Read More
