Goodyear tires for 2011 5.0

Anyone recommend good Goodyear tires that are good for cornering, straight line and a good ride? I want them for daily driving but also want them to preform well when I need them. THANKS! 255/49/19. I want them to fit my rims that come with the brembo package. I'm putting down 435rwhp so I want good tires.

Re: Goodyear tires for 2011 5.0

Are there any "good Goodyear tires"? I have always found that to be a bit of an oxymoron...at least on the ones I've tried. Maybe they are better now?

Short answer is no. Goodyear's "performance" tires are lacking, to say the least. The only decent high-performance tire by Goodyear are the F1 super car tires, however, those are way over-priced for what you're getting. Since you have 19" rims, you will be limited on your tire selection, but probably the best available 19" tires would be one of the following:

Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110
Continental ExtremeContact DW
Yokohama S.drive
Yokohama Advan Sport
Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

There are all available in 255-40-19. I have the Hankook's on the front of my 05.

I'd do Hankook's V12 Evo again in a heartbeat. They tamed my 300 hp FWD Mazdaspeed 3. I expect they'd erase fairly quickly in a car of this weight and power but, I'd still get 'em again.

Originally I love the pilot sport ps2. But I got a set of nitto invos. They were new and free so I thought I would give them a try. Simply amazing. Same performance as the ps2 with a way better price tag(I didn't pay for them but I did check out the price and will defiantly buy again when it's time for some new ones). The grip on my mustang is just unmatched for that price.
