2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Nineteens

When Edmunds Consumer Advice Associate Ron Montoya informed me that we bought a Mustang GT, the first thing I asked him was "Did we get the Nineteens?"When he confirmed that, I responded, "Yesssss." So we did get the 19-inch wheels fitted with 255/40 ZR19 PZeros (all part of the $1695 Brembo brake package.)

We ended up with 18s on our dearly departed Dodge Challenger R/T, and I hated them. That vehicle was huge, and from the back it looked like it rode on bicycle tires.

I'm happier with the Mustang GT and love the look of the 19s; they really improve the stance.

And the ride quality is just fine too.
