tires

i have a 2014 premium v6 mustang and i desperately need new tires because ive burned out and drifted too much..oops....

anyway, i have michelin green x tires right now and i dont really like them..id like bigger tires with more grip and if you could direct me to semi slicks as well it would be great

thanks as always!

I really like Hankook V12's. I'm using Nitto 555 right now and so far I really like them.

Cooper Zion rs3 tires are a good price, were designed for the roush stage 3 s197 mustang specifically, and come in summer or all season styles. That or the bfgoodrich G-Force sport comp-2. Those are my preference for cost/performance for these cars.


You know that warm and fuzzy feeling? That means something bad is about to happen...

I have street comps, I love them. I almost can't break them loose. Good dry and wet traction and they warm up pretty quickly.

I didn't realize how good they were till I swapped my stock wheels back on for winter with my old Falkens. These POS tires chirp at anything I give it lol

When I roll around on street tires it's the street comps I can still break them loose in 3rd , but it's manageable. Not sketchy like all the other street tires I have tried

How exactly do you define "semi slicks"? Do you mean treaded DOT legal R-compounds? Or the stickiest true street tires? Or just good sticky high performance summer tires? Keep in mind that the stickier they are, the worse they grip in the cold and the sooner you'll have to replace them again...Not that there are many great options available in the right sizes for these cars, without going to a bit smaller OD, especially with the 17" wheels.

Define "any good" thats the important part. I have to buy tires with treadwear in the 200s if i want any hope of hooking ... on that note, i'm lucky if they last 20k miles. I know people that would be pissed if their tires only lasted 20k miles, but they obviously dont need the traction. Just depends on what you need, and finding that balance. Best thing you can do is start looking at treadwear and understanding the different performance categories and that should help you at least start narrowing down your search.
