I think square is better,Especially on a lowered car hard to tell that the front tires are smaller unless it’s extreme.
I guess if you can’t get wide enough tires on the front to make you happy for what you’re trying to do then going with the widest possible in front and then slightly larger in the back can be a good option. I like having wide tires on the front also for the best cornering possible. But for the most part in my opinion go as wide as you can in the front and then match it to the back. And then if you need more or the back could always get a set of drag slicks just for the back.
I personally think the S197's actually look better squared up and lowered. Staggered looks better on the SN95/New Edge Mustangs. Of course, it's really personal preference. Post'em up when you get your Bullitt wheels on your Mustang.
I have a 14 GT that I bought new. Ever since about 5,000 miles, I have had loud tire noise. At about 11,000 miles I took off the stock 18" tires and wheels and put some 19" take off factory rims with almost new stock tires. Now with 24,300 miles on the car and about 13,000 miles on these...
My other vehicle has a nail in the rear passenger tire. The tread is worn down below the recommendation for repair according to Discount. Conclusion: buy two new tires.
Now this has me thinking; what about drag radials? Specifically the MT ET Street R?
Looking at their specs, tread depth is...
My son has a set of ARE Bullet rims 17” in
front standard (17x8 maybe?) and 18”x9” in rear. They are a special edition Captain America rim set. We figure to use 245/45R17 on the front. What’s the widest he can place on the rears? He has a 2000 GT and wants as wide a tire as he can out on it.
Just wondering if anyone replaced the stock 215/65/17 tires on their S197 Mustangs with 235/60/17 tires using the factory rims? If so, how did they fit and look? The revs per mile is almost exactly the same.
I thought I would share my experience I just had yesterday. My 2015 GT didn't pass PA inspection due to my OEM tires. They are past the worn state. I have to say I haven't been a fan of the OEM Pirelli tires. They didn't wear well at all, I have less than 25,000 miles on my car, they were...
