Think about a pair of Mickey Thompson drag radials, for the track.

A $12 steering wheel cover from Walmart. I kid you not...the stock wheel is way to skinny. The slip-on leather cover makes it nice and fat and looks OK too. I just don't have the patience to spend 4 hours putting a lace-up cover on.

This is the one I got...

Thanks DR007! That helps. Are the NT05's really crappy in rain? I don't drive the Mustang in rain etc but you never know when you are out and it starts to pour in the winter? I want wider tires...just want to pick the best!
Sorry for the thread hijack but hopefully this helps OP as well

Had it in Sport mode on a rain slick new asfault parking lot and it did not take much to spin them. Originally I ordered four, but found out only two were available. Put the first two on the rear and had that experience. So I cancelled the order on the NT05"s and ordered the NT555's for the front. These are very good in the rain. So I have the 05's on the rear which are great at acceleration and the 555's on the front in case I get stuck in a Florida thunderstorm. So far, so good, love this unorthodox setup!

Both are great on the road course and the Drag strip.
