Re: tire question
first off, I would recommend you get some rims before you spend money on tires. I have the Kumho ASX tires and I have to say they are amazing. I would give them a 9 out of a 10. Also, my tires perform so well because I have a wide tire. 275/40ZR17. That's about 11". Your stock ones 225 is only about 9" wide, so you're lacking lots of rubber. I got my tires from tire rack for 122 a tire, and I got them mounted and balanced for $15 each. As for the rear. That's really going to depend on how well you've taken care of it. Have you done annual fluid changes? Have you beaten on it everyday? People forget 7.5s used to come in mustangs back in the day. Ford did realize the potential for them to break so upgraded to the 8.8 for the GT models.
