So I am new to mustangs after being away for 20 years. I am also not an expert on tires I dont even fully understand the numbering. So I have to rely on good folks like you all here.
SOOO. I switched ut my OEM wheels for my buddies PP1 wheels. But tires were just exspensive and I was gonna store them. well you know how car stuff goes, they are one the car LOL. Well to get them on the car but not have to drop another 1 plusk on tires he had some he included so we could get them mounted.
So on back there are the 275/40R19 101W Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires
and on the front are 245/35R19 Toyo Proxies S4 plus
we went out and did some "spirited driving" and when we returned and checked Gauges and numbers at some point (not sure as I take corners hard weeee. I hit a 1.79 lateral G with this set up. Its a good set up never broke traction not once.
My issue.... look at that gap (pics below) on the front.... it looks like i have a spare tire on the front LOL. I like the back it looks great.
So Tire gods. What can I replace the front with that will still give that level of performance and have more meat to fill the tire well so it looks better? IM not looking for super expensive tires and I will even buy used if less than 1k and super reasonable price. I just need to know what to look for. Thanks all.
Hmmm, if “you” are happy with how your tires grip, and it sounds as if you are, don’t change them. Nothing wrong with 35 aspect tires, very little flex and you know exactly where the limit is. Most wouldn’t do a 35 because the ride is harsher, I run 35’s on the front of my SVO and have for 3yrs, no issue.
From reading your post your main issue is “gap”, you can try fixing it with 40’s or 45’s but you probably won’t like the different handling, don’t know. The best way to fix your gap (and get even better handling) would be to install adjustable coil overs, most adjust from 1-4 inches.
