Cool 2013 GT Cold Weather Traction Test = Rolling Burnout!

Decided to do a little cold weather test on my stock tires. These are the tires that hook up great when it's warm on the street and at the track, allowing me to get a 1.89 60' with 33psi in them. Definitely a different story when it's a little cold out. Makes me feel like I drive a race car! lol

It's not just cold weather. My Brembo GT with 3.73 will do that on a 100 degree day. Only add in a lot of axle hop!

OP I drove my car to a ski resort this weekend with my Track Package 2013 Mustang GT and it was 14 degrees on the top of the mountain and the compound was literally frozen. I would take off from the parking lot and they would spin at like 1/8th throttle. Scary how these things do this in cold weather.

Aren't they rated for above 7 Celsius? (what ever that converts to in your witchcraft Fahrenheit)

At what temp F would you say is the minimum you could safely drive the OE Pirelli P zeroes? This is my first Mustang (V6 with PP.) Live in North Central PA and would like to get one or two more drives in before putting it to bed for the long, long winter.

I don't mean to be the mad panda, but sounds like you're putting yourself and others in harms way.
