Plus many other things.

of course, throw a blower on it and the right amount of boost, you'll make more power than the Shelby, but for how long? the stock rods and pistons aren't going to last, so account for that, most end up going with an aluminator

Well, the traction is going to "suck" in a 662hp (50% more hp) car with almost everything else the same. Ie: approx. the same size tires, and only slightly stiffer rubber components on the suspension "bushing" side of things.

What had you done to your GT suspension wise?

I like both but for some reason the red GT500 looks a bit nicer! Why not get a Super Snake?

The haters on this thread left pretty quick lol.

I'm torn on what to do to get traction. Either new rubber, or new rims/tires that will hold wider rubber. I think some Michelin pss's will make a dramatic difference over stock, something tells me it's not going to be enough...

The f1's are garbage unless you're in warm weather and they're warmed up. I might try a 295-35-20 invo. It's close to the same spec as a 285-35-20 f1.

Don't do it. I'm running a 295/35r18 Invo. Won't hook for **** but I've got a little more power than you're making. They wouldn't hook when my car only had a tune and intake even with all the suspension components I've done. Try something else they're garbage.
Edit: just kidding about the more power. I kept thinking u had the 2011 gt500 lol.

the Pilot Super Sports are great tires. But with 662 hp, I'd look at new tires AND wheels, so you can put something about 305-315 wide on the rear.

The Pilot Super Sports are great for street use if it was me I would not be too concerned with getting all 600 HP to the street. I would get another set of rims with drag tires for when you want to get busy.

I'm not concerned except for the fact that I can't even normally drive it without going side ways. I'm just looking for a tire I can go partial throttle on. If I keep these rims I'll try the Michelin tires in a 295-35-20 and 265-40-19. I think that will provide enough traction for me at the moment. I'm trying to decide whether A 295 will be ok on the 9.5 wide rim. Some say they've had no issues and some say don't do it.

I would really give Van a call he is located in Florida and he is great with GT 500's. The owner of the company I work for gets advice from him. He is getting a suspension package from him now and he is also cool to talk with.

285 is max for that 9.5 rim size.
Sam Strano knows the car well and can advise on wheel and tire combos. Others, especially Vorshlag have done a lot of work on maximum wheel and tire figments.

I know but people run 295 with no issues. So there is some subjectivity with the topic. Most of the people who say 285 is the max, haven't attempted a 295. And the ones that have 295, don't have any issues. That's why I'm torn.

I just bought a set of used Michelin pss in 295-35-20 to test out. They have 50 percent tread left and I got them for $200. This will let me test them out to see if I like them prior to buying a new set. I think the pss 295 might be too wide because they run wide, but if they are, I'll back down to a 285 when I buy them new.

wheel size + 1.5 inch x 25.4mm per inch = max tire size

8.0" wheel + 1.5 inch = 245 max tire size

8.5" + 1.5 inch = 255
9.0" + 1.5 inch = 265
9.5" + 1.5 inch = 285
10.0 + 1.5 inch = 295
10.5 + 1.5 inch = 305
11.0 + 1.5 inch = 315

Yes, you can fit larger tires as some have done, but the shape of the tire is not correct or optimal. This is simple math/geometry.

If you go with something that really doesn't fit properly, then you might not even be getting the extra tire width on the ground.... ie: the tires will be pulled / stretched upwards at the edge b/c the wheels are too skinny.

Some people say some manufacturers "run skinny or wide"... which I don't really see how or why they should as 295 wide is a measurement, if they "fit" skinny then they're lying or giving you less rubber / tire than you paid for.

I'm a 32 waist but my Hugo Boss suits I have to get a 34. It's a measurement...how could it be off?

Clothes are something completely different. They have many more measurements not included besides the waist & even leg length. There's thigh diameter, butt size, etc... That said most jeans / pants will fit on the correct waist size, but all the other variables make you have to go up sizes, like maybe b/c you work out you have thicker thighs, etc. But what you're talking about doing it saying a 38" waist pants will fit you even though you're 32" waist.

My waist is 33" and all of my jeans/shorts are 33 or 34. I only go up 1 size in general b/c that's the optimal fit.

But if you want to try to put it in a clothes comparison.....

Stock wheels:
8" come with 235
8.5" come with 245
Brembos 9" & come with 255
IF there was a stock 9.5", they would come with 265's. You're already going up 2 sizes. (275, 285) or about 1" or 7.5%

Clothes to 9.5"
In clothes your waist (wheel) is 33" (9.5"), your stock size would be 34" pants (265), if you tried going up the same % you'd be wearing 36.5" pants. Sure you could make them fit, you could wear a belt, etc... but they're not optimal fit.

But go ahead & experiment. They will fit, they will work, but you'll be just past the right size and your performance... corning, etc... will suffer a little. An inexperienced driver wouldn't notice it. A professional race car driver would notice, and not do it.
