Tire brand testimonials, what do you recommend?

Looking for 17's 285-305 width, w/ great traction both wet & dry driving conditions. Looking into all season eventhough it's not driven in winter & was told that summer tires were really slick when wet but I don't know from experience. These will be on a Foxbody & will see some track time. What brands to avoid would also help me out, thanx everybody

Mickey Thompson street comps. Not sure if they make that size, but they are a summer only tire I have driven in 30 degree weather with as good a traction as my stock A/S pirellies had. Wet tractions is pretty decent too.

for warm weather they are very sticky.

Mitchlen pilot sports a/s, best tires I've ever ran. The tires hook so well that it's hard to do a donut, unless you have plenty of room, due to it pushing the front end. Wet traction is nearly as good as dry. If I remember right there guaranteed for 40k. I've always ran the best Goodyears I could find in the past, discount tire recommended these and I have no regrets what so ever.

Thanks again for the input. I went w/ summer rated Continental Extreme Contact DW. A buddy has 'em & I liked them, top rated wet driving & found matching for fronts. Michelin's were a bit too expensive for me.

Your gonna have a time and a half trying to make those 285+ rear tires to fit on a fox. It might work without the quad shocks but it will rub

Removed the quads & massaged the inner feeder-well some. Made clearance but still need to lower car to see fender lip spacing or lack there of... It was therapeutic beating the mustang with a hammer, Lmbo.
