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 for cornering. That said, the 255/40/17 Potenza RE-11 is a dream come true. Better ride, no wheel spin, no slide in corners. If tread wear isn't a concern (no wear claim or warranty.)Then this is the only tire to consider. I went from years of un certain launches and corners to feeling like a pro behind the wheel. This is the only street tire I will purchase.
