Hey Guys,
Purchased a 2012 v6 Mustang 4 months ago and loved it so much I had to sell it and get a 2011 Shelby GT500 with the SVT package. I live in New England and will be driving it from May 1st to November 1st. So some colder days will be encountered. the current tires just slip everywhere unless its 70 degrees and up! But when they hook man do they hook!. What Im looking for is great hook up tires for New England weather. These are the 20" rear and 19" fronts. Again Im new and would appreciate any direction or opinion on real good tires for weather ranging from 45 -100 degrees. Thanks folks! btw, this car is absolutely amazing! Never drove anything like it.

If you're just looking for rubber to tide you over and stay safe until the summer, you can't go wrong with a set dedicated winter tires like the Bridgestone Blizzaks, Pirelli Sottozero, Firestone Winterforce, Michelin X-Ice, General Arctic, etc..

If you want an all season that can stand up well in the cold, this clip is worth watching:

The Conti DWS really is a fantastic tire and very much up to winter driving conditions. It got me through two blizzards, a lot of ice/sub-freezing temps, and ran really well the rest of the year.
