Best Replacement Performance Tires for Your Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang has been an American icon since its introduction over 50 years ago. With the 2011 model year, Ford brought back the legendary 5.0 moniker that was made famous in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The new 5.0 was rated at 412 hp and 390 ft./lbs. of torque. This popular GT model is typically equipped with a tire size of 235/50R18. However, we always recommend double checking your car to make sure you select the correct size.

  • BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2A strong performer at a strong price point. We really liked the handling and wet traction, but did find the overall refinement to be a little behind some higher priced options.
  • Continental ExtremeContact DW - This offering from Continental provides an attractive solution for many drivers based on its great wet traction and ride quality.
  • Michelin Pilot Super Sport - Taking top honors for years in the Tire Rack One Lap of America event, this tire is considered the king of hill. All of that performance does come with a bit of a ride quality compromise, but nothing severe enough to scare away the performance junkie.
