2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Installing the PS2s

July 21, 2011

Our 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 is much happier now. Yesterday we finally got around to installing those Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s we picked up the other week. So what took us so long? A Mustang with worn rear tires is fun. We were enjoying ourselves.

The real challenge was persuading 4 tires to fit into the Mustang. Take a look...

Thanks to the woofer, only one tire fits in the trunk.

Two on the back seat.

We probably could have moved the front seat completely forward and fit this tire behind it, but this was easier. The drive to Stokes Tire Pros was less than 2 miles so the last tire rode shotgun.

We spent $140 for the installation. And we retained the old tires to be smoked up at a future date. Next step, off to the test track with the PS2s.
