Tires worth the price?

I got these new wheels for free for my 2000 GT and they are pretty nice. I got them from a friend of my off of his 2000 GT. They are tsw rims, the front tire size is 235/40r18 and the backs are 275/40r18's. I was looking around for tires "cause they are bald and one is blown'. They are around $750-1000. I was wondering if they are going to be worth the price? Am i going to get a little bit more performance out of my mustang?

Kind of hard to give input on the performance of the tires if you don't tell us what kind of tires your looking At.

But honestly 7-8 hundred is cheap/ average for 18 inch tires especially if that includes mounting and balancing.

He could always go for the Sumis I guess. They're like $150 each with the forum discount on AM. That's $600 plus probably $100 mount/balance @$700.


18" performance tires are not going to be the same price as $75/each sedan tires...

Pick your tires based on your driving style. It you need performance buy a performance tire. It you have a daily driven all-weather car, buy a tire with a great treadwear rating.


Smoke tires, Not drugs!!

$800 is cheap for tires. I could easily spend $1200-1600 on tires. Granted they would be super sticky high performance tires.

Yah, I'm looking at probably $800 for Mickeys or Nittos on these 18x9s. Nittos are the original tires Steeda put on so I might go with those. 285s out front with no rubbing on a lowered car is kinda crazy but that's how it came from them and it goes full lock with no issues.

My 275s rub a bit on full lock. But it's a bit more modded. With spacers they should work just fine. Going to try on my 10" up front.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I have purchased a bunch of sets over the years, love my current ones because they were cheap and are wearing wonderfully.
ROUSH Racing designed the tire with Cooper-
COOPER ZEON RS3-A
