How fast does your stang go through tires??

I haven got to drive my stang much since I bought it but the tires it came with have good tread on them. It has cooper's on the front and some cheap fierce tires on the back, how long do you guys think the set will last me until they go bald? Also what's the best brand for long lasting and grip?

New cheap tires will just about outlast the car if you have a different set for racing.

A good set of tires will last around 40-60k miles normal driving and even laying some rubber down every now and then if you make sure to rotate them and keep them properly inflated. There is also the age to consider, if the tires are old and starting to crack around the sidewall area, get new ones even if there is good tread left. Very good tires for our cars that are not veyr expensive are Kuhmos and Sumitumos. Shop around on tirerack and discounttiredirect and see what is the best deal for you.

That seems really excessive. Usually they last 8-12 months depending on how you drive. 40-60k miles is 3-4 years of driving lmao

Ok well tell that to my set of Michelins that lasted well over 50k before I needed to worry about replacing them.

If you have a set of tires that is only lasting a year even on a DD, get a new set of tires or stop being an idiot and doing burnouts at every light lol.

Sumitomos are **** I your fox makes even decent power... ( cam and long tubes, etc ). Kuhmos are ok but only in a pinch.
If your going to do it, do it right the first time and get some michelins...
( 5 years at discount give me plenty of experience )
