Tire setup

Hey guys what tire setup do you recommend. I currently have the 19 inch brembo rims I have 255- 40- 19 in the back and 245 - 40 - 19 in the front. It's about time that I need to purchase new tires should I stay the same or what would you guys recommend? I have a 2011 mustang v6 with 365 max hp.

365 max hp???? Where are you getting that number from?!

Any who, the staggered set up looks good IMO. I'm running the AM 275/40, 245/45. If I could have gone bigger in the back, I would have. But I really like the look of the 275/40 out back!

365 HP???? That still baffles me and I can't wait to see your mod list.

With that little difference in the width of the tire I say just go the same size all around so you can rotate them. If you had a wide rim then I would say 255- 295

Evidently, that is CLASSIFIED. Maybe you can call the NSA and track his phone calls and email, since he appears not to answer your question.

Relax, he's probably talking about flywheel
He took his mods, added the hp, and added that to 305
No need for e-floggings

Get newer, wide wheels :p
Unless you want to keep stock,
Then I recommend either
Nitto invos (summer only)
Or continental extreme contact dws (all season) <--- that's what I've got : D

No harm done :p
Just a general rule of thumb
People who know cars talk about wheel horsepower
Non-car people talk about flywheel or at the crank

And most car guys care less about HP...its the amount of torque applied to those rear wheels that really counts. HP is mearly something to brag about over a beer.

Exactly why shorty headers are an excellent choice for performance. Minimum HP gains but a ton of torque.

So you have pulled the engine and put it on an engine dyno?

Like stated above just go with the same size unless you buy different wheels.

Torque> Hp
It's why a 6500 lb truck with 350HP and 600lbft of torque can leave many V6 cars in their smokey wake.
