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 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 BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

2005-2009 Mustang V6 owners, UPGRADE TO THIS TIRE FIRST BEFORE ANY OTHER HANDLING UPGRADES. This is the best performance value replacement tire and most profound handling upgrade for your car when upgrading to the 18-inch X 8.5/9 inch wheel.The lower profile and moderately stiff sidewall eliminates the bouncing and bounding of the stock 16-inch tire, and you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

THESE TIRES ARE AMAZING! I have a rear-wheel drive '95 Mustang that was terrifying to drive when it started snowing (I live in Michigan). I could NOT get up my driveway and just driving 25mph was dangerous. My boyfriend STRONGLY recommended Winterforce tires so I went ahead and spent the money for them AND I'D DO IT AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT! (ended up getting a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I've owned the same Mustang for 14 daily driven years so there have been plenty of tires installed. Wet traction was always a problem with high torque rear wheel drive until installing the G_MAX AS-03's. Rain, snow, or shine, I'm driving with confidence while others spin out. This is the first tire that grabs so well it sounds more like velcro on a hard turn...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I put these tires on after only 12K on the terrible OEM PIRELLI all-weather. Like night and day, not even in the same category. The Bridgestone S-04 are top notch for a Mustang GT. I have the Roush racing suspension, exhaust, and the Ford Racing ProCal tune. These tires keep the rear end firmly planted absolutely no wheel spin or fish tailing when going hard...  Read More

moda MD14 Wheels for Your Dodge Challenger

Mustangs are fun, Camaros are hot, but there is something primal about the Dodge Challenger. Recently, I got to work with a Challenger driver who loves his car, but is less than thrilled with his 18" Original Equipment wheels. When we were discussing new choices for his vehicle, it didn't take long to come across the perfect choice - the moda MD14...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This review is of my WS70s bought this winter, but also my WS50s which I bought in 2007. Both sets of Blizzaks have been absolutely awesome and to be honest, I can't tell the difference between them. If you have never driven on proper winter tires then you will be astonished. When I bought my Mustang (305bhp/320lbft rear wheel drive) to use in upstate New...  Read More

Tire Advice for My Cousin's Dream 2011-2013 Ford Mustang V6 Manual

My cousin is in the market for a new car. What should he get? He's looking for a muscle car big enough to fit his 6'3" frame and at a price around $17,000. Unfortunately, the 2015 Ford Mustang (pictured below) won't make the cut. Since he needed to move on from this dream car, he started looking at the 2014 model. He checked out a lot of cars at the show, but...  Read More

KW Variant 3 Coil-Over: Race Technology That's Comfortable on the Street

Having just purchased a 2012 Ford Mustang GT, I felt that many aspects of the vehicle's performance were phenomenal, however the suspension left me wanting more. While the car provides good lateral grip in corners and performs better than any other generation of stock Mustang, the soft spring rates contribute to excessive body roll and front-end pitch under...  Read More

G2 Caliper Paint: A Nice Finishing Touch

While I've installed suspension and brakes in the past, it can be some work. This past weekend's task was much easier with the use of G2's Brake Caliper Paint System Set to cover up the factory caliper's tarnished raw casting. The G2 Caliper Paint System is quite thorough and comes with a can of brake clean, paint color of you choice, hardening resin, stir...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I have a 1998 Mustang Cobra with 280 HP at the rear wheels. I had a set of BFgoodrich g-force sports in 245/45/17 and would spin through 1st and 2nd gear and slide in most hard corners. To be fair, I impacted weight transfer with an Eibach kit that included lowering springs, sway bars etc.(Love the kit) and then I added caster/camber plates and set camber...  Read More
