Great pics, cute dogs! I use the same seat protector for my dog. I leave one seat down and he enters and exits through the trunk.
Oh yeah, I forgot, we went to Vasquez Rocks too.

Hey guys, need a little advice, Tried posting in Tire area but no responses. May try Mach 1 forum next unless you guys have some opinions?

I am contemplating new summer tires for my 21 Mach 1. I have about 9500 miles on the stock non-HP staggered setup and when I run the Flex tune with E85, I just spin through 3 gears and can't hook up. Seems like I have good tread left and I store them in my heated crawl space in the winter months so the compound should be good. I only run 93 on the Flex Tune in the Winter with my Continental DWS Sports 275/40R19 all around and they hook up much better.
What do you guys think the issue is?
If I were to switch the rears out first to a Continental DW sport 295/35R19, could I keep the PS4S 255/40R19's up front or is this too much of a stagger and are 2 different types of tires front and rear not advisable?
Equal or greater Tire diameter in the Rear is important to me for how the car looks and sits.
Thanks for any advice or input.

I don't see any issues with that stagger, but I was not impressed with how the Conti's Hooked Up on my old Stang. My PS4s' hook much better.

How long ago? I think their tires have come a long way in last 5-6 years

Bought them in 2021, I had no complaints with handling, it was starting and stopping.

I am no expert but I have the HP and had to change my Cup2's for the street to Michelin PS4S. I had to go with 305/30/19 in front and 325/19/30 at the rear as they had no 315's. It's staggered and they work fine even in the rain. I tracked them in the cold and rain this year and they did just fine. Ford Performance School uses the PS4S at Charlotte in rain or shine. Of course in the wet, you have to be easy on the throttle 'cause the Mustang just has too much power. This is the way...

Sitting out in the sun today to help cure yesterday's window tint installation. SunTek CXP in the darkest shade allowed by NC law so I won't get harassed by police or the inspection stations.

Wow, what a long weekend. Drove down to L.A. visited the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, picked up some parts for my F150 Prerunner in Murrieta, got Eowyn detailed, then went to Fabulous Fords Forever at Irwindale Raceway. Then finally picked up two 11 week old German Shepherd puppies. Forgot to take pics at show, but lots of people were, so maybe I'll find some on line.

Got it back from the dealer….Seat belt error checked and cleared, and hasn’t come back. Now my puddle lights work too. Car was at dealer for a few days and cam back filthy….all cleaned up. (Raptor not so much.)

Boxes of parts have started arriving. OP Mustang SS brake lines (thanks @mattlqx for the recommendation.) Steeda jacking rails, tow hooks, and FP air filter. Car goes to Elite Performance for some prep work in a couple weeks.

They only messed up the one wheel, he mentioned sending it out for repair but since they were brand new he agreed to replace it. Typically in the past I may have been angry but when someone takes responsibility right at the beginning and agrees to make it right I just can’t be mad. I did have them mount the tire so I could drive it, we are having beautiful weather all week
The tire dealer is lucky he isn’t located in GA. I’d need to double check the OCGA but I’m pretty sure that is an offense whose partial remedy here is a good solid pistol whipping.

Drove her to work. As I get older it gets more difficult to drive at night. My eyes are not good.

Started getting ready for car show season! First big local show of the year is next weekend. Ceramic coating the wheels and calipers and installing black gorilla Lugnuts. Washed the engine bay, car pro reload ceramic booster. It’s a sickness…

Today I did this! From Beith Performance. Made from factory wheel with heat. Feels incredible. If you have driven an M3, it’s like that but a bit better.

Put on black gorilla lug nuts and Ford Performance center caps. Also, put on Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace (Shelby GT350R).
