Ahhhh new tires

Got the low air pressure light,(nail in tire) and my stock Pirelli AS tires are
wasted at 20k miles anyway so I pulled the trigger and got a full set of new rubber. Yokohama YK580 AS. Went to 255/45/18's up from the stock 235/50/18's. Looks better,sounds better, performs better.
Those Pirelli's had to go!

Those pirelli's are absolute garbage haven't seen a tire go so fast I had 20,000 km and a few 1/4 passes on mine when they were toast . I put a set of the Mickey Thompson Street comps on they seem to be a million times better.

I also went with the Yokohama yk580. They are 1000 times better than the pirellis.

Pirellis are fine for daily driving. I'm on my second set now, third set sitting in the garage when it's time.

They're fine if you're just cruising around town. If you commute 120 miles a day at 70mph, the road noise is damn near mind numbing.

Dude compstall I swear you're like the Cookie Monster equivalent for tires especially your love for the stock Pirellis.

Don't you have like 6 sets of these tires? With about 40-50k miles per set you're doors may actually rust off and the nuts and bolts holding your car together may spontaneously disintegrate due to old age before you even get to your last set of pirellis lol

Ive run the S drives before on my former 04 GT and loved them.
They were super quiet smooth and wore perfectly even. Thats why I felt good about trying the yk580's. Even though they are classified as AS tires they feel just like summer tires.

Does anyone actually get 40-50k out of the pirellis? I haven't read anyone getting very much over 30k.

I wasn't all that hard on my last set and got just over 30k out of them. If you babied them i think you could push closer to 40k but that would be the limit.

What? 20-30k? Haha, when I bought my car the salesman at the dealership told me they are good for 50-60k.

I gave him a weird look when he told me that, he just continued on with his speech.

I've got 32k on mine and they still going strong with lots of tread left.
Maybe I'm not hard enough on them lol, but they are noisy on the highway.
What the hell are you guys doing to not get 20k out of tires??

I drive my vert only in the summer. I have 25K on them and they will be shot after this upcoming summer - 2 long trips. What do you guys recommend for good high performance that will grip in the rain (if I get caught LOL) All season - or just summer and what brand? I don't want Pirelli's again.

Is everyone talking about the All Season Pirelli's and/or the summer Pirelli's?

For such a crappy traction tire I would have thought the Pirelli AS would last at least 40k with no problem. Apparently not in many cases.
Now the Pirelli Summer tire is only rated for roughly 20K miles(Treadwear: 220)
I know when I switched from my OEM Goodyear Eagle F1 supercar Summer only tire to my winter Pirelli AS, I started slipping and sliding on dry pavement. (with a little spirited driving.)

I tried the Supercars on my old 95 Cobra, was not exactly impressed.


For all seasons, get Continental Xtreme Contacts


For a max performance summer radial get Mickeys Thompson Street Comps


For a budget performance radial get BFG Comp 2s


If you have money coming out of your *** and want max traction get NT05s


If you want to powerslide around corners and spin out on high rev launches like in Super Mario Kart, get Sumis.

I would suggest reviewing web sites like tirerack.com and looking for tires that perform best on wet and dry roads. Like close to a "9" rating. Also, see what their respective tire wear ratings look like as well.
For example...
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/CompareTires.jsp
Then scroll down to chart.

Someone sold the P-Zeros I had on hold, so I had them put on four ContinentalProContact 235/50/18's. Love 'em...groups of tire on the pavement...much better braking properties than the Zeros. I just never felt confident with the Zeros on curves...it's like they just didn't feel that good...I have a 2002 Camry Solara V6 with Michelins that takes curves with more aplomb than I dared to with the GT wearing Zeros. The Conti's give a much smoother ride, they are lively, and the reduction in road noise is significant. 60K mile warranty, and they cost a little more than a hundred a set than the Zeros...definitely worth the extra bucks, IMO.

I keep telling ppl how good the Contis are. They are a superior tire.

lucky for you someone else got the P Zerotractions ....though I definitely would have upped the size if I was replacing 235s. It's criminal Ford puts so little tire under a car of this weight and power. I think the 255 Goodyear F1s on my Brembo car are good on grip (way better than the summer only Zeros on my last BBP Mustang) but still marginal on width for a car this strong. I'd say 275s should be minimum.

275s should be minimum for this car no question, its a cost saving cop out by Ford plain and simple to put narrow *** tires of ANY brand on these cars much less one as bad as the Pirrellis. An upgraded wheel/tire setup is legit required on these cars if you give even a half a **** about performance.

I agree. I had the 19" upgrade on mine before I got new wheels and tires and those were 245. Looked like wagon wheels compared to what I got now. Over 400 horsepower with being lightweight makes the 235 or 245 a joke. I also think the new Hellcats have 275 all around if I'm not mistaken. Crazy.

That's what I was thinking too. But wasn't sure. Also don't all the track packs get brembos?

Took out the stock Pirellis as soon as I bought the car. Put some Invos on it and never looked back. I've got the 4 brand new Pirellis with stock wheels sitting in my garage. Might put them up for sale soon.

I really don't know how people are killing these things so quickly.
In 32k I've done a good mix of city/highway and spirited driving. I'm also lowered and car pool with 2 other guys to work every third week.
Agreed that these are not the greatest tires out there but if your not getting 25-30k out of them its related to driver habits or improper maintenance, like rotating them and alignment issues.

Sorry your theory is wrong, I do perfect maintainance, and dont drive crazy , and the tires were perfectly balanced and rotated.
The roads here in texas are rough and its over 100 degrees in the summer, face it the Pirellis suck. Im not going to run tires until they are bald, the last 10k miles on any tires are dangerous as well. Just cause the tires have a tiny bit of tread left doesnt mean you should keep driving on them.

Sorry your theory is wrong, I do perfect maintainance, and dont drive crazy , and the tires were perfectly balanced and rotated.
The roads here in texas are rough and its over 100 degrees in the summer, face it the Pirellis suck. Im not going to run tires until they are bald, the last 10k miles on any tires are dangerous as well. Just cause the tires have a tiny bit of tread left doesnt mean you should keep driving on them.
Well we drive the same car and the same tire so..... Many on here complained about the grip and road noise but also said they lasted very long, similar in my case.
Btw my tires are nowhere near bald, I'll post a picture when I get home to prove it. Maybe I got a "special" set? Lol. Lucky me.
How else do you explain it?
Like I said before they are not the best tire by far, but not to get 25k out of any tire. Hmmm.
