Used the V12 Evo, cheap as chips, tamed my 300 horse Speed 3 pretty well. Bit too soft a sidewall for a car of the Mustang's weight and power, in my book.

Can't say but, I expect so. It's a pretty soft carcass tire for a high performance tire. Great for ride, great for a lighter car. It tamed the most ferocious torque steering monster in my old Speed 3, for example, over the iron-hard Bridgestone RE50s.

The V12 is extremely quiet, rides well, has a good compound, works well in the wet. However, like I said, I think it might be a touch too soft overall and that means if you push it in a demanding car of the Mustang's weight and power, it may be imprecise at best and might dismantle itself, at worst. People on the road-race sites do report that very thing when they try to track the V12 in heavy, powerful cars.

Just cruising? Go for it.

Probably fine then, just keep its limits in mind.

Me, I'll probably be springing for Invos next time, once the BBP Pirellis erase themselves.

Oh yeah, given the softer carcass, don't expect wear rates to be too great on the V12s either.

Mich will give you double the life of the Pirelli and better grip in the bargain. They'd be my choice if money was no object. I've never had any complaints about them and I've beaten Mich tire mercilessly.

I was buzz-sawing the Hankooks down pretty good on my last car with 300 horses that weighed in at a little over 3000 pounds. This car has 100+ more horsepower and is 5-600 pounds heavier, hmmm. The fates of physics are aligning against long life....

No rubbing whatsoever. They are mounted on 11X20 Steeda Spyders and I have never experienced rubbing on anything.

Always, tires first. That's most of your suspension, right there. Unless something is broken or madly badly designed, most of your suspension work comes form that little contact patch with the road.

Weight and power are major factors is tire life and durability. It's not road weight, your can add or subtract quite a bit of weight under g loads. That's what chews up tires.
