I went with stiffest non adjustable one in rear from Steeda and also put an adjustable one on front which is set at softest setting. Mine has zero over/under steer right now. If you talk to Gus Izarrio, he will give you good advice without trying to sell you anything.

Hi Rick,
Neutral Balanced setup. Sounds great!! Do you have the same size tire set up that I have 255/40R19 & 275/40R19?. How can I contact Gus? Do you have your swaybars model number at hand?

After hearing about the camaro EL1 I might go back to non staggered or follow your way staggered. Don't want to lost the great balanced handling of the brembo setup and if possible to improve it, toward more neutral or balanced handling.

I went with a Steeda Comp front adjustable set loosest at farthest out hole (555-1067) and rear solid 1" kit with end links (555-1057). I just came back through Adirondaks Park yesterday and the cornering was awesome

I vote staggered 275 rear and 255 front. Here are the advantages: Better Looks, Better Handling, and technically saves you money over 275's all around because 255's for the front are cheaper.

But if you're set on rotating...255 all around.
With a staggered setup, if you turn, you end up throwing away front tires with no outside edges and rear tires with no centers...

It is expensive. Its basically impossible to get the front camber high enough and the rear tire pressures low enough to wear the tires evenly.

Excellent grip. Stiffer sidewall but still not a harsh ride. Great in wet as well as dry.

Very noticable handling improvement when compared to my stock 245 Pirrellis.

(PS...214_5.0, a staggered setup may look "sick", but it will induce understeer in the Mustang under heavy cornering. If superior handling is what you are after, you want non-staggered...not that the average Joe would notice one way or the other on the street).
Hi PacMan
With the 275 on front, Do you feel any tramlining on the road compared to stock setup?

I run 275/40-18s on 18x9.5s. I love this setup. My car tramlines a little, but I think that has as much to do with my insistence that we zero out the toe as it has to do with the width of the front tires. Handling is crisp and balanced. (on UPR Products suspension) I love it!

(Note: I tried a staggered setup on my car last year and it pushed)

I run 275's on all four corners, I have not noticed any negative handling effects.

Question though, should I check the alignment or adjust the alignment away from factory spec? All stock suspension and went from 235-50-18 to 275-40-19.

13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

As long as you get wheels for the tires to fit properly, I would opt for 275's.

How about 19x10, to go with the 275's?, Do youu think that wide of wheel might increase tramlining or rubbing at front?

Only if you drive like a red neck.

If I did not rotate tires, I WOULD have to buy tires twice as often because the fronts would have no outside edges and the rears would have no middles. By rotating, I DO get more miles out of my tires because both the outside edges AND the middles are low on tread when I throw them away. And technically, the outside edges go before the middles.

wider looks beefier in my opinion. And beefy is good.

I have 255/45/18s on 18x9 in the front and 275/40/18 on 18x10 on mine. Love the staggered look and it fits the wheel wells well.
