Like everyone else (I think?) my 2020 GT350 came with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. After some research I am not confident that these are good wet weather tires. I live in the SF Bay are and we get lots of wet days from either rain or fog. I am NOT going to track my car, do donuts or burnouts, but want a grippy all weather wet/dry tire. What might you all suggest?

I bought mine 2020 GT 350 from James Ford, I was told do not drive in the rain and be careful leaving the lot do to the puddles.
I will be putting 4S's on it next

I replaced my cup 2s with ps4s about 2500 miles ago, the ps4s are much better on the street and eliminated the tramlining, do great in rain too. I went with 325 on the rear and 305 front

Any particular reason you went with a 325 and a 305? As opposed to...?

Went up from 315, just like a little more width and they fit fine on my stock Mach 1 HP wheels. It is an old school thing ,always wanted as wide a tire as I could fit and still function good without rubbing, would do this on all my classic and modern Mustangs

check out this article. Some really good info. I have michelin as3+ on my Audi and they have been very good. My weather here is similar to what you describe. Lots of wet, cool days and a week or two of snow and ice every year.

Only tires I could find were Nitto's 05's
But these are not all season tires

Got a tip on a guy that is good at finding hard to find stuff, I'll let you know what happens...

So, was just talking to a wheel and tire guy who suggested I go with 11's all the way around instead of the 10.5's up front for wheels. Tires 295 and 305. Anyone done this and what was your experience?

Did you need wet weather tires or 4 season tires? If the car is only going to see 40+ temps and rain then a good summer tire with good wet handling is a much better choice than an all-season tire. MP4S is such a summer tire with phenominal wet handling, it just shouldn’t be driven near or below freezing.

That's the tire I'm looking at, I live in the SF Bay area where we get plenty of dry and good chunk of wet.
