Depends on how much snow you will actually need/choose to drive in. If you drive through accumulated snow, wider isn't neccesarily better. You want narrower so the tire digs in and gets more traction on the compact lower layers. Wide tires can wind up acting like snow shoes, and leave you gripping powder. I run 255s in winter and 285s in summer, both square. Do you still have your stock rims? I use mine for the winter set.

I run 255 Blizzaks on 19x8.5 rims in the winter. Works fine.

I was going to run 275/40R19 square for winter, I don't think I can do 255/40/19 on a 10in wheel without some crazy stretch. But I honestly don't want to use my OEMs anymore. The Advan GTs are tough and I will rinse them off from salt everyday. If you run 255, what is your height?
255/40/19 on the black accent package 19X8.5's. Pirrelli Sotozero 3 tires. The OE wheels are nice to put on for the winter. Salt, ice, and potholes are not kind to wheels.

I only have experience with Blizzaks, but I had good luck with them. They gripped well in poor conditions and lasted quite a while. I ran mine for 5 years with no problems and sold them on after selling the GT350. I had them on a 2011 GT and a 2015 GT and I drove those cars every single day through the winter. The GT350 didn't see much winter use unless the roads were clear.

I can tell you I ran up against another Mustang - a 2014 or earlier - in really cold weather and whatever tire he had allowed him to completely annihilate me every single time. I kept trying even knowing that he had more grip, but I lost badly to him. I was in the GT350 and spun the Blizzaks every time - or lost because I didn't apply enough throttle. Either way, his tires had more grip. This was on cold, but not icy pavement.

Point being, there are definitely some tires out there that will grip on cold, dry pavement better than the Blizzaks. I'm not sure what those are. But I still liked the Blizzaks for snow and ice and would buy them again.

I use blizzaks every winter, but I'd not run a 10in wide. For snow a more narrow tire is better. a 8.5-9in would be better to cut into it instead of putting your car ON the snow.

My sotozeros actually work really well on cold pavement. They fall a bit short of hakke's on snow/ice, but what doesn't? I picked them because in between storms my area is mostly cold salty roads, not standing snow.

I absolutely hate those posts where they treat their Mustang like it's shit by only letting it drive in certain conditions. Ford didn't test the shit out of this car just for you to drive it on summer tires between May and August. You're not showing your love for your Mustang just because you drive it 1/3 out of a year, you're just showing you don't believe how capable your car actually is.
Agreed.

No car lasts over time in heavily salted/brine coated roads up here. You can rust proof it annually but its only prolonging the inevitable.

Esp domestic Trucks your lucky to get 6 yrs out of an F150 without the bottom rusting out.(depending how much you drive. Early morning hwy commutes are the worst.)

Well, when you buy mine for me, I'll let you tell me when to drive it.

Until then; STFU....................:devil:

I ran the brand new Pirelli All seasons last year and was blown away by how well they did in a Canadian winter.
That being said, I’m looking at 255/40/19 winter tires to slap on my factory black package wheels for this year.
I personally wouldn’t consider running a 10” wide wheel in the winter at least up here.

Yeah, blackout wheels are for my winters as well.
