I don't have an answer to that question. However, Brembo cars have a special compound specced by Ford for that car. So if you like how the car handle with the stock tires keep this in mind when shopping.

It's not a special compound, they're just the summer-only variant of Pirelli PZero tires as opposed the the PZero Nero all-seasons that come on the other models. If you have a convertible BBP then you get Goodyear F1 Supercar tires, which are also summer-only.

BBP wheels are 19x9, so you can get any tire that fits a 9" wheel. Just keep in mind any all season tire will be a downgrade in handling and ride quality. The stock tires are 255/45R19, so a 245/40R19 would be a bit more narrow.

Why not go with something a little wider? Like a 275? Never a bad thing to have a bit more rubber.

Wider summer tires is better! I agree on the 275/40/19 would be a good fit.

None. My car is an auto so it didn't come with Brembos. I bought the wheels without tires and added the Hankook V12's.

Probably about 315 on a 10-11" wheel. Much more than that and I think you will have clearance issues.
