Question best tires?

Hey all this is my first post. I was just wondering what kind of tires are you all running for your mustangs? I'd like to get a variety of answers fro
Auto crossers, dragsters, and most importantly aggressive daily drivers.

Re: best tires?

I went with Nexen on My Mustang GT, and Dunlap on my wife's Camaro. The Dunlap did not come in the sizes I needed for my Staggered Setup, so I went with the Nexen.

I run Talons up front and Nitto 555r out back. Great tires, both types. Nitto hooks great and look amazing.
