This is what my dealer told me, he is usually pretty knowledgeable. I do not know about gearing, but I do believe it with tires on the auto.

A lot of the people who buy the Mustang as just a car to go back and forth with, who do not care about Ford, performance, or anything, they just picked a car, get an auto...I am not saying all auto owners do that, but it is just how it is. It makes sense they want the passive drivers to have better fuel economy.

Yep, I know that's why they have the Michelins. I'm not sure on the final drive, but I doubt it. I do know the MT82 in the V6 cars has a lower geared first gear than the v8s... so it is possible.

My bf goodriches got me about 25. My Michelin defenders are safer and grip more and they get me about 32 tops with cruise control religiously. They also grip well as I was chirping through second without t/c on. By low resistance I think they mean that you can use less throttle and work so when you coast it holds speed better and that's how they save you gas and stretch your gallon.

Most Michelins are low-treadwear compounds which are harder. A harder tire means slightly less grip, but it also means lower rolling resistance. I think they're slightly narrower too. Like 215 vs 225s.

Yepp, that's what LRR do. I didn't think Ford would be so bold, but it is smart. I have a standard, so doesn't apply...and before my first oil change I had 2013 GT 18s, less than five miles on them, so I can not comment too much on them.

Butch- I gotta sat that was too funny.

My 2012 came with 18 inch Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires. They stick like glue and are great in the rain but A little noisy. I will get Michelins when replacement time comes.

Like riding on clouds. My mom has the perellis on her RS camaro. They have ALOT of road noise but feel so nice with the camaros extremely tight steering. After my 90,000 miles are up on my michelins, ill be getting some p-zeros
