Tire opinions & tire sizes

Hey guys just wanted to get your .02 cents on YOUR favorite tires & tire sizes.
I have a 2011 mustang 5.0 with the premium package.

The rim size is 19x9 inches.
car comes with 255's all around, i was thinking on 275's in the 255's in the front.

If you put 275 on the rear you won't be able to rotate tires anymore...
Depending on how you use the car that can be a big deal.

Depends on the look you are going for, 275's should fit on a 9" wheel. I have 275's all around on my 2005 gt, this way i can rotate them to even wear out.

You can still rotate from side to side.

Unidirectional tires would have to be remounted.
I'd rather have 275s on all four corners.
But again, it depends on what you're doing with the car...

Sounds like the OP was not really going to the track, just for looks. That doesn't require unidirectionals. I run 255s on front 9" and 285s on rear 10" and rotate them every oil change.

Hit up google images, once you find the set you may want keep your stock wheels just incase you want to take the new wheels off in the winter or if you ever trade the car in. If it takes you awhile finding wheels then it's all up to you if you would like to put a 275 on your 19x9 wheel on the rear just to get that staggered fitment look. Good luck!!!
