Because it's one of the most expensive places to live in the US and they have a lot of stupid laws and strict emissions lol Also gas is a full 1$ more per gallon than everywhere else

2013 NJ is the 5th most expensive state to reside in, Cali not even being in the top 5, but yes gas is ridiculous there, really can't complain about gas in NJ compared to out there but there's many other things to complain about lol

Back on topic, I live in NJ and I don't plan on swapping out the Pirelli "Summer-Only" tires as I really can't afford different ones. I hope they hold up just well enough to get me through

Uh, you are also describing many parts of Canada!

Back to topic, there are excellent all season tires available for your Mustang. Think about all the folks in Europe, Germany as an example, that drive their vehicles in the snow at speeds with their Mercedes, BMW's Audi's, and others.

I'd talk to your local tire store to get the scoop on what will work best for your local wintery conditions.

You might even consider a second set of rims and winter tires only over the all season types. Then simply change the combination when the weather gets better in the spring.

In reading these types of posts, I really, really appretiate Florida.

You folks stay safe up there when the winter strikes. We want to see your pics in the spring when these Mustangs come back from hibernation (for those of you that store them during winter).

I wouldn't take any chances with summer only tires with a 25k car in a northern state. You should try and find a set of, at the very least all season tires. I know the winters are not nearly what they are here but I'm sure you get your fair share of snow and ice. I recommend getting a set of winter tires on a set of black steel rims, they may look like crap but are well worth the investment if you plan to hit the winter every year! On any amount of snow or ice summer tires are completely useless, if you love your ride invest a little in it to keep it and you safe.

6$ a gallon here, no emission test.......yet, and I think we pay the highest overall taxes in the country. Not exactly paradise either. : ( Lol.

This is why Chains seem to be the best.

Of course you will want them on all four wheels

It would be nice to have chains for your feet too!

Summer only tires up there would be a no no - I put all season tires on my cars for the winter since ours are pretty mild, but even if it's just wet and not icy but down around 40 degrees, summer only tires suck ***.

Then again, you just said "performance tires" so you might already have all season ones (I've run UHP all seasons on numerous cars here and they do great here in St Louis).

my .02 I suggest getting a set of take-offs either from Roush or used on one of the Forums. When I asked this ? it seems that folks north of the Mason/Dixon said don't run the summer onlys (well enough of them) I will also stress the cost of even a minor fender bender is way more than a set of 4 dedicated snows. In honesty I don't even drive my Stang in the rain often (I have a truck too) but in cold weather I scored a set of the Pirelli Neros of someone and use those in cold (below 30-40) weather. I'm in CT for referance.
