    2015 Mustang rolls on Goodyear traction

    The Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season is a race-inspired tire that offers strong ultra-high performance handling and all-season traction.

    The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says that with the Goodyear Eagle F1 tire OE on 2015 Ford Mustang I4 and V6 models, the two brands continue to put style and performance on the pavement.
    Goodyear says Eagle tires have been a key component on Mustangs over the past 50 years, and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season tire as a standard fitment on 2015 Mustang I4 and V6 models continues that tradition. The company says early reviews of the redesigned Mustang are strong, as many experts and fans appreciate the signature looks, such as a long, sculpted hood and minimal rear deck.
    The Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season tire features a specialized tread compound for enhanced wet and dry traction in any season, and TredLock Technology, with microgrooves that help provide biting edges for enhanced wet traction and lock together for confident grip in turns

    Still wondering what that tire will be on the 18" wheels on the GT. Almost there now!

    Is this tire's tread pattern something new? A review of numerous tire vendor's websites and the Goodyear site doesn't offer any pics of an A/S F1 with a similar tread pattern.

    The Continental Extreme DW would have been a better choice.

    Being a summer tire, the Conti ExtremeContact DW would not be suitable for winter climes albeit a great choice for your locale.

    I somehow missed it in the link that was posted about Pirelli.

    According to several industry sources, the 'standard fitment' on the 2015 Mustang GT will be 235/50/18 A/S rubber by Pirelli.

    We run the Continental DWS on our 2013 GT500 in the cold weather. They are a GREAT all-weather tire. In the summer, we run the Nitto Invos. Nittos give a little more traction but the Continentals will easily dig through inches of water or snow.

    On another forum that I follow, The Conti DWS is the overwhelming favored replacement for the OEM tires.

    The DWS has become a best selling tire for my Mercedes customers mainly for its great value and it nicely replaces the Conti ProContact that comes standard on many cars.

    I've run Continental Extreme Contact DWS's on 4 of my vehicles, including my '11 GT. Awesome all season performance tires. Had they been available in the sizes I wanted, they'd have ended up on my '14 GT, as well. I ended up buying Eagle F1 Assymetrics for my '14 GT and they're pretty good all seasons, as well, but not quite as sticky as the DWS's.

    Here's the F1's on my '14, followed by the DWS's on my '11, for comparison. The F1 pic above that Topnotch posted doesn't look right, as Cosmos pointed out.
