    Whats some good rear tires for my Stang. It has around 250 rwhp and I am going to put a 4.10 in it when I get it out. I want something that will stick good and still get some kind of decent miles out of them. What are your guys recommendations?

    hell, if you find tires that can handle my traction problems(and yours for that matter after you get 4.10s) and still get good miles out of them, lemme know.

    Thanks for the help :ugh2:

    Any serious replies? I didn't say anything about getting regular miles out of tires on my car. I just was wondering for everyone elses opinion and what tires they have experience with.

    I'm running BF Goodrich drag radials out back but I use to be a huge fan of Falken tires when I had different rims on.

    I was looking at those and nitto 555r's. How do you like them? how much do you drive your car?

    nitto 555r's are pretty good, i have like 10,000 miles on mine and probably 40 trips down the track, 30-40 street burnouts too. they are worn out now, but thats pretty good for a soft compound tire. also they handle really well in the rain somehow.

    I run Nitto 555rII's on my 01 GT, and love em. They hook like a m0f0, and the price was decent.

    it sounds like nittos are the way to go for my needs. Quite a few people recommended them on mustangforums.com also

    The rII's have stiffer sidewalls, they are basically a drag radial/road race bastard child. The side walls are so fucking stiff, it is insane.

    uh..yea you did buddy.

    if anyone tells you their mustang handles good in the rain with drag radials, they're fucking out of their loop. mustangs handle like shit in rain, even with michelin pilots.

    if you just want something to get you 10k miles and good traction, bfg drag are the best imo.

    I :bowdown: to my BFG's. As far as driving my car .... Spring, Summer, and Fall i'm driving her almost everyday. Took her out last night just to drive her. The ground was a little bit wet and pulled a hole shot. Nothing big, just a little spin to warn up the tires. Because the ground is still cold, it was senseless but it was still fun. :naughty:
