Soooo.....what? You go drifting all up in them streets when it's 35 degrees, and if you can't do that, you're not able to "enjoy the car"?......am thinking I will be switching out tires since the summer only aren’t good when it gets cold and wet. Additionally, on those brisk days when it’s sunny but 35 degrees, I want to be able to enjoy the car as well......
Geez NoVa, he didn’t ask if we had opinion on summer vs. A/S rubber. He asked about sizes. If he wants A/S tires there are some great ones out there. Not everyone needs or wants dedicated summer tires.Soooo.....what? You go drifting all up in them streets when it's 35 degrees, and if you can't do that, you're not able to "enjoy the car"?
The OEM tires are better than all-seasons in every way and in every condition, except when it's cold. And when it's cold, all you have to do is drive normally.
When I had my GT PP, with Summer tyres, I drove rather slowly, during the rain. Sometimes, I would simply use my Missus car, versus driving the Mustang.I’ll most likely be keeping the same PP for awhile at least. I guess my question is about using say a 255/40/19 all around even though the rear tire rim is 9.5. What are the down sides for using a square set up versus the staggered wider wheel in the back?
I get summer tires are better performance tires but wanted to know how they performed in rainy environments and also looking for a tire to last more than 8k.
