I have done the Arning drop about 10 years+ ago.....
The coils are brand new, there is no engine so no proper weight yet on the front suspension, I will have to cut them if necessary whenever I reach that part in the build.

For the time being, they will be my do-it-all tyres.
Finding a track tyre, road legal, for a 15" wheels that doesn't look a pan cake is near impossible.
I do not like 17"+ wheels on the early Mustangs, I do not like skinny tyres on a 15" wheel.

I might in the future get myself a set of steel wheels in 16" as tyre choice in that size is way better.

Understand. Your build is so race oriented and using some of Shaun's coolist stuff I just expected more aggressive tires.

66 coupe, '93 Fox seats, Three point belts, 289, Weiand, Hipo manifolds, duel exhaust, T5 trans, Pro 5.0 shifter, 3.40 open, KH front disc, Porterfield R4-S pads, 1" front sway bar, Shelby drop, Spring perch relocation, Shelby quick steer, GT progressive coils (1/2 coil cut), 4.5 leaf mid-eye, Bilstein Street Shocks, Export brace, Monti-Carlo bar, Sub-frame connectors, Performance alignment (+3.5 caster/-.5 camber), 16x7 wheels, 215/55/16 & 225/55/16 BFG G-force
