I have a 2008 Mustang Bullitt that came equipped with these tires. Honestly, for a top-of-the-line (excluding the Shelby) performance car, Ford should have considered a different tire size and category for this car in the first place. An all season tire on a rear wheel drive with 315 hp? Ridiculous. In any case, in contrast to the previous Bullitt owner's review, I only got 23k miles out of the original set and I do not do any burn outs. There is virtually no way to improve traction in a rear wheel drive sports car in the snow except by putting on a set of bonafide snow tires and swapping them out for a set of ultra high performace summer tires for dry traction. Thats my strategy for managing Utah weather. Cheers!
