Even though I know my car is pumping out 320+ rwhp now (dyno confirmed), that doesn't really happen as often with the Sportracs: they grip. I'm pretty much sold on them as the tire to go with for 65/66 with 15" wheels. Unfortunately they might not have the sizes you 67-70 and 71-73 guys want, especially in the rear.

The guys at Scott Drake say that the 215/60s should be fine up front. I live in N. Central PA and we have some nice twistys which I really enjoy. Last year I put on a 1" front stabilizer bar and an export brace, and with the Shelby drop it really holds on the turns. As soon as the weather gets nice I'm getting busy on the tire/wheel/disc project.

Most Mustangs are too nice to qualify but perhaps with the right "initiation fee" we might be able to bend the rules and give out an "associate membership", we would have to run that by the board for review first but I could put in a good word if you have aspirations...


I vote after the tire/wheel package is sorted out or during if help is needed help that a preliminary meet with @Huskinhano is in order to assess the level of Rat Pack Worthiness.
It would be awesome to have more vintage (Ford especially) iron show up for opening weekend at WGI and Autox daze
Huskinhano and dobrostang like this.
