2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: What Tires Should We Get Now?

June 09, 2011

Our 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 currently wears Pirelli P-Zeros sized P255/40R19. But, as you know, they're a little tired and the car is just a little looser (read: more fun) than it used to be. So new tires are in our future, what should we get?

Bridgestone Potenza RE050?
Continental ContiSportContact 2?
Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT?
Goodyear Eagle F1?
Eagle F1 GS-D3?
Pilot Sport PS2? (My vote here.)
More Pirellis?
A set of Sumitomo HTRZ IIIs like on our old M3?

Something else? No promises, but make your case in the comments and we'll consider.
