Tires

I'm fixing to trade in my 2011 this week and getting a loaner till my new 2016 Mustang GT comes in. What tires do you all recommend for the 19" GT PP rims? I told the dealer I didn't like the Pirelli's and they said they'd put on what I wanted.

That's pretty nice that they would do that. I'm sure there all all kinds of opinions, but I like continentals. btw, this might be something to keep in mind since I want to get all seasons, but it looks like the 18's are the only one that comes with them and I found a couple new stangs that I like that have the 19" which I believe only comes with summer tires.

The answer depends entirely on what you need out them. Warm weather only max performance? Get some good summer tires. All year including snow? Get an all season with good winter performance. Comfort and tread life? Get a long lasting all season (usually aren't very good in snow, but OK in cold weather). The list goes on...

The 19" wheel package comes with all seasons.

To the OP if you live somewhere that regularly goes below freezing, the roads get wet and close to freezing or snows an all season tire really doesn't cut it. If you don't plan to push it during the warm weather and all season isn't a bad choice.

Having recently acquired Nexen N5000 Plus in 275/40-18s... I would say get them.

I'm also a fan of the Cooper Zeon RS3-As, but they don't come in the right size.

I took a chance on these Nexens, all season, supposedly go to 65K miles (If I get 40, I'll be happy), fairly inexpensive given the criteria, and they seem to be really good performers. Had a brake check in the rain... and the car made nary a sound, just stopped. Sold me on my choice right then.

I'd say consider them.
