AMR tire choices?

Looking to purchase an AMR wheel and tire kit. What's the general opinion on best tire they offer? Best bang for buck? 2013 GT brembo

Pirelli?
Micky Thompson?
Nittos?

I prefer Nittos. Really depends on your driving habits.

Not extremely aggressive. Looking for a decent tire that will last and provide a decent feel.

Not very familiar with the Pirellis for the mustangs but the non drag radial Nittos tend to last fairly long and are decent in rain.

The nittos are louder though, noticed a considerably louder road noise from stock michelins on my old v6 when I ran the nittos.

Hmmm...? I wonder why AM only gives us 4 tire choices. I certainly don't want louder treads.

Ok so after some further research I'm finding the p's to be the best all around for conditions. MT's and Nitto's not so good in rain

I see AM only offers these rims in 8.5" and 10" widths. I really don't want to stagger and definitely don't want to downsize from my stock 9.5's. They say I can't use 10" in the front. Why so?

You should read the thread started recently about folks who bought tires/wheels from AM and the bad experiences they had. Why not just go to a local wheel/tire store? Easier to deal with problems. Is there a compelling reason to mail order wheels and tires?

Mostly ease and cost savings. But yes, Im beginning to agree mail order tires is not the way to go
