what tires do most people recomend???

ok, ok, do not bash me on this thread since there are so many out there but not really any soild answers to my question, and ive read quite a few tire threads.. im currently running p zero nero 275/40 r19 in the rear and they have worn pretty bad since ive owned them.. yes ive done some wicked burnouts etc.... so of course there going to be worn.. so im looking into getting some new tires for the rear. i want the same tire but, I do like to do a little hot roding around, and want good traction. all thou I do not run the track. just my dd... so my question is, what brand tire do most people run on there car.. ive got basic mods. so i would like some grip. factory suspension but replacing in next few weeks.

2011 MUSTANG GT 5.0 PREMIUM---stedda cai, 3.73 gears, boss 302 intake, oil seperator, sct with bama race tune, pypes x-pipe, and corsca axle backs.

For 19's I recommend Falken 452's to improve your traction and performance while maitaining your ability to drive in rain. Do not buy a Nitto.

I've been running the mickey Thompson street comps. There cold weather traction is great. Driven them down to 30 degrees with no real "holy ****!" Moments. Also in the rain during normal driving they still hold really well. Still not gonna bust sweet red light starts in the rain but they hold better than my a/s pirellies ever did.

MT tires are always a good option.

I have michelin pilot super sports on mine and I didn't know tires could grip and handle so well until I got these. I have yet to get sideways, and believe me I've tried, just not hard enough obviously

I'm pretty happy with my new BF Goodrich Potenza S-04s. Very grippy.

I just recently put on Bridgestone Potenza S-04 pole positions, I am running 275/40/19 on all 4. I would have to say so far these tires are great, a little pricy but great so far.

Jsmorley81,

The Mickey Thompson Street Comp is a great choice for a performance street tire. I highly recommend using them if you're looking for some extra grip, but good driveability! Try a few searches about the tire on this forum. I think you'll find most members very impressed!

I feel the same way about my NT05s, but the rain and temperatures below 50*F have brought more Jesus into my life than any church could have. Those Michelins are great too by all accounts Ive heard..

Also a great tire.

Im getting my 20" vossen cv2 on monday or tuesday and I went with Hankook ventus V12 cause i was trying to stay in my budget for rims and tires.. My budget was $3500 for the rims and tires and it came out to that... 2 255/35ZR20 in the front and 2 275/35ZR20 in the rear were $1200. He originally priced me Michelin pilot sports for $1800 which I new was a far superior tire but I was on a budget and for a DD I think the Hankook should do fairly well.. I will go with the pilot sports next time or at least in the rear and move up to a 285.... By the way I live in Canada so the prices are a lot higher then what you lucky Americans pay

My buddy has them on his '13 RS3 and he seems to like them a lot. I haven't driven them though.

I have used many a hankook ventus and I like them. I run them on my dd stock lightning wheels and they work great. I have MT Ets for my track set-up and love those tires!

Potenzas suck for tread life. I've seen super sports and the PS2 get up to 40k miles without rotating them (split fitment). I guarantee you will see a longer life out of any michelin's tire than you would from any comparable tire from any other brand

I thought about getting those but decided on the MT. I read a lot of reviews saying the g-force were terrible for wet roads and cold weather. I think it is one of the most aggressive street styled tires.

I can't speak for the sport comp 2 but the kdw2's are loud and bad in cold/wet. Overall they're a great tire, pretty sticky when warm and have last me quite a long time. The sport comp2 is supposed to be pretty good but I cannot speak from personal experience

Eh, it depends on who you ask. AM says to put them at stock pressure. I've noticed that if you're running nitrogen you need to set them about 5-7 psi higher because the pressure doesn't fluctuate after running them like air does. If you're running wider wheels and tires you may need to set them a little higher (2-4 psi) but honestly stock pressure is still a good starting point then I would look at adjusting it from there

Air is already 79% nitrogen. I still don't see any benefit truthfully.

If nitrogen was so much better, I'd think the USAF would be using it on all ther planes, which they don't.

In the article the guy claims he's found tires with several quarts of water inside. Never heard that before in my life. Your going to notice that much water inside your tires.

The only part of the article I might agree with, was the part about the psi staying constant. Lol, could you imagine 2qts of ice in there.

Hahaha exactly. Your not gonna ignore that. The god awful noise that would make and how weird the ride would be. Now. Assuming american muscle did what they said and when I first got my RTR rims and MT tires in they were nitrogen filled and I put them on the car with it about 32-34 degrees out. They were at 38 PSI. I dropped them to 35PSI and a few days later when it hit 60 degrees out they were at 37ish PSI.

So....I don't know.
