Re: All season tires

not sure any tire will solve issues driving when the roads are cold in your car

Re: All season tires

We got all seasons for my girl's 02 GT and to tell the truth, they only help minimally and probably because they are brand new! Of course its more than just cold here, there's another 5 inches of snow that fell last night!

Re: All season tires

I would move to TX if I didn't own my house outright and it was worth more! I think my car might be worth more than my house as a matter of fact!

Re: All season tires

Yah I drove the mustang once in winter with the stock all season Goodyear Eagles. It wasn't bad but I wouldn't do it again. I bought a 4x4 Ranger and save the mustang for those nice spring/summer days.

You could look into some blizzaks or Continental winter tires...you'd only be able to use them in winter but they are much better and more effective than all seasons. I wouldn't say they'll make a drive on cold, icy or snowy roads care free since a 300hp RWD 5spd car is just going to be a chore in those conditions.

I'm just thinking for the price of 4 new tires you could pick up a cheap winter beater to get you through those nasty winter days.

All seasons are a waste of money. They are mediocre in snow,wet and dry. Buy dedicated winter tires or expect treacherous driving. I live in Saskatchewan and I am looking at 4ft of snow out my window right now. Oh n I have a lifted 4x4 for winter. My mustang looked at winter for only a few minutes before the garage door closed. Not a winter car for sure

I would love to have a lifted 4x4 I had a jeep for my first vehicle. I lifted it my self 4 inch with 32's it was a Cherokee so not a full jeep lol. But I loved that think in the snow, and woods. I just got my stang in April. The Mach 1 is my dream car. But for tires I got 16 inch slicks BFG I got off a friend can't wait to run my car again

Hehehe.... I was actually thinking about driving my car this winter but with an inch of snow on the ground it was dangerous.... I was gonna keep the truck as just a work truck. But the I thought about it and I got the best of both worlds.... I feel bad for people that have to drive their mustangs in the snowy winter.... Be careful if you are

Re: All season tires

....one other thing, I'm trying to find some tires, but I keep running into tires with a V rating instead of the Z. Do you fine people think that having a V will do instead of the Z?

I'm running Toyo Proxes 4's on my cobra, I absolutely love the performance I've had this winter! When I lived in jersey (mt laurel) I had an 03 GT w the same tires, same thing, I loved them! Depending on where you get them they can be pricey but WELL worth it! They look good too! (bonus, they're Z rated!)

Re: All season tires

I live in central pa...and during this past january we have already been pounded with snow several times not counting the past 2 days with an ice storm. The one snow storm we received 8 inches of snow.

I'm driving my 03 Roush GT in these conditions...here are a few simple tips to make it easier.

#1 - Buy all season tires...review their ratings on Tirerack for the snow. I would recommend. Continetal Extreme Contact DWS tires...they get a great 8.6 out of 10 for snow...reading the reviews alot of rear wheel drive sports cars use them with great success.

#2 - Put about 80 lbs in the trunk before the snow starts falling (I use 2 40lb wood pellet bags on a blanket)

#3 - Before the snow falls - fill your gas tank up.

If you do that and drive smart, no real problems.

I bought a set of 98GT wheels with 85% new all-season tires on them for $300 from craigslist...I've made it to work while some front wheel drive cars haven't.

I am in the process of all season tires just waiting for my tax return check and I usually catch a ride with my boss and the gf drives a civic lol.

Continental's, huh?! I've researched and I keep coming up on the Dunlop Fierce Instinct's and the Eagle GT's. Since the shops here can't find the Dunlop's that I want, they keep raving about how well the Eagle GT tires are.

I'm not a fan of Dunlop, both their car tires and motorcycle tires have never worked well for me. The Eagle GT's i've heard good things about but haven't run them before.

Here is the link, then click on the Survey's Tab

Continental ExtremeContact DWS

look like real nice tires.
