Tires for 2011 GT Premium

I've got nearly 25k on a set of 18" Pirelli Zero Neros... original tires. Today I went in for an oil change, and the service person said I would probably need new tires next oil change...28-29K. He also said that was pretty good tire wear for a Mustang GT...I don't do burnouts, and I'm not doing high G turns...I'm pretty easy on my hot rods...just for the sake of experience from you folks...what would you suggest as my next set of tires? Thanks for the discussion.

Although pirelli rates them for about 45,000 Miles, based on others actual experience with them (all season) I would say 30,000 is pretty good.
Prolong your next oil change and they'll last that much longer.
Next tire depends entirely on what you expect out of it. Longevity, traction, price, happy medium?

Well since you have a Premium..... then you need Premium tires.

Did you really need to create a new thread vs. just researching a little through the hundreds of other tire threads ?

I put Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Ten times better then the factory Pirelli P Zeros. They have a 30,000 mileage warranty, but I've never had a Michelin tire not exceed their warranty. They handle great, and are much quieter.

Thanks for the feedback... I did...sometimes new material is a good thing. Are you always snarky or just on Mondays?

If you don't drive the hell out of your tires then there is no need to buy Michelin pilot super sport which is design for summer only and handle awesome. save yourself some $$$ if you don't intend to drive wild!!!

Michelin Super Sport are great and have an incredible amount of grip. If you want the best and money is no object, get them.

I had them on my last car & people were always amazed as the speeds I pulled off in the corners. (at track events) That said, they lasted nowhere near 30,000 miles at least not with the approx. 5 track days that I put on them. In fact, I didn't even get 10,000 out of mine.

First, full disclosure; I hate the French. That being said I will not buy any tires other than Michelin, unfortunately a French company. I have a good friend whose buddy works for a tire company. According to him Michelin has the best compound mixture in the business. I have always had good luck with them and they seem to wear better than the Pirelli's that came with my car.

I bought 9 P-Zeros in 3 different transactions over a year's time. All had less than 3,000 miles on them. Found on Craigslist. Paid $600 total for all of them. Dig around if you like them as a street tire, no need to shell out full price. I'm at 38,000 miles and still have 5 left in plastic bags in the garage.

If your car is a daily driver all year round like mine then definitely get another set of all season tires. I watched a few videos and read some reviews on tirerack before I made my decision and then shopped around for the cheapest price which I found at sams club.

This is a great point. It seems like Everyone is always looking for the "best of the best" and in a lot of instances that it's the route you want to go but if you're just daily driving the car there is no reason to spend 600+ on a set of 2 tires unless you want to.
