Yeah. I barely drive it. Maybe once in a while never more that 1 hour a day or never more that 3 times a week just ride it for fun

Well I'd go with 315 nitto nt555. That are nice and fat and are a summer tire. If you drive it daily id go with 315 sumitomo. That's what I use. They are great. I don't really care about how much they help me hook. Only that they last

If ur rim is 17/10.5 I'd say 315/35/17. It's a perfect fit. And it may be hard to find a tire that size. But someone correct me cause I'm prolly wrong.

315/35/17 is going to be the best fit. Maybe 335's but that may be too much sidewall.

I have 315's on my 10.5" and they look great. I wish they still made the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3's...those looked badass in 315 form

Yah I forgot you had the pypes on for a while...I've wondered how the stingers sounded. I've heard the regular S-type on the v6 and they sounded decent.

The ataks are supposed to be specially tuned for the mustangs' v8 and all that jazz...in the end they're Borla, they're expensive as hell but sound amazing lol.

I would've guessed they'd sound better with some cats than without.

You running a midpipe?

Well axe em then...I personally would want some cats to help reduce the amount of noise but everyone's different. If they sound/feel better leave them out...you can always weld them back in if you want to later.
