Best Ultra Performance Tire

I currently have 18" rims on my 2014 and I want to upgrade to these 19" rims. TSW Mustang Mirabeau Wheel - 19x8.5 Silver w/ Mirror Face (05-14) - LatemodelRestoration.com
Since they are 19" i was wondering what 19" tire people recommend for all season driving. i live in Ohio so I really cant go summer tires for a DD. i currently have the P zero's on my car and love them. So do you recommend sticking with Pirelli's or going with another brand? Thanks for the help.

I just replaced the stock P Zero Nero All Season's with new ones which probably wasn't the best but eh. I'd like to know as well.

Best is subjective. PSS are my favorites.

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3

No All-Season tire will give you the same amount of grip of a summer tire, but the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 come close. This is by far the finest tire I've ever owned. They ride great, roll smooth, balance very well, have awesome steering response, and provide really good grip overall.

I went with Hankook noble s2's. They are far better than the stock tires IMO. Have 19's as well. was best price for the tire that i found.

Hankooks are a good tire. Michelins are RIDICULOUSLY overpriced.

firestone firehawks indy 500 wide ovals.
I have those on my cobra and Mickey Thompson street comps on my GT and the mickeys feel slippery. The firestones seem to keep me planted better then my gt's set up.

Understood, and I used to think the same, but I've learned over 27-years of driving that when it comes to tires, you get what you pay for.

Every tire has a purpose, and if you own a garage queen that gets less than 10,000 per year, or have a commute that rarely leads you down a highway, than saving money on tires might make sense, as you really are using your tires to their fullest, nor have to deal with long commutes with a vibrating car or steering wheel. Maybe you just shoot around town and enjoy a little hooliganism, then maybe a tire that offers more outright grip is the highest thing on the list. If you have a garage queen and the car is just a weekend/good weather car, than I doubt I would be concerned with much of anything other than cost.

Michelin's are expensive for a reason, they have the highest quality, the most advanced rubber compounds, are the truest/roundest tire you can buy, balance with lowest amount of weight, and typically give you more tread to the ground when compared to others. If you drive lots of miles each year, these things are important.

Comparing a 255/40-19 Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 to the same sized Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's, the Michelin gives you 0.9" more tread across the tire width when measured across the same 9" wide wheel. More tread equals better traction, and IMO, better value for your money.

Maybe an important factor to some, Hankook's are made in the Republic of Korea and shipped over to the US, while the Michelin's sold in the USA are made in the USA.

The way I look tire purchases is this. Most people need new tires on a Mustang, on average, about every 25,000 miles. That's about 1-year of driving for me. You can spend $775.00 for a set of Hankooks (tires only), or $1060 for Michelin's (tires only), or a $286.00 difference. Since I have to live with the tires for at least the next year then I prefer to have a higher quality, better riding, better balancing set of tires for $286. This extra amount equals less than $1.00 per day, which is a 14:1 dollar ratio for the gasoline I burn each day to the price of higher quality tires spread out over 1-year.

If you want a wider tire for the size and a really good compound, do what I do and get a BFG. My 275 wide BFGs are as wide as a 315 Nitto or a 295 in a tire that does not run narrow. Great compounds, last a long time, good traction etc...

I've had Michelins before, they are great, and if the difference is $200-$300 for a set of 4 that is one thing. But for the sizes I run, the difference is like $1k... no thanks.

^This! I have these tires on my Stang and the wife's Audi. They are great year round. I can't speak to winter conditions though as I don't drive my stang during the winter months. Continental DWS would be my second choice but they have kind of soft sidewall. Yes for the most part Michelins are expensive but you just need to shop around. I got mines for $700 installed with new lug nuts for my wheels.
