2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Rubber? Check.

June 01, 2011

We've got some plans for what's remaining of the rubber on our Mustang so I thought I'd give you a good "before"look. Make the jump for a close-up.

So that's a wear bar. Right now we're barely in safe zone. I'm going to go out on a limb and say we won't be for much longer. You'll know why soon enough, but let's just say this endeavor involves an ugly green hat, some high-octane energy drink and a bad attitude.

And, by the way, this seems like a reasonable amount of wear given the multiple tests (inlcuding some road course running) this car has seen. Today the Mustang has 8,775 miles on the clock.
