The stock Pirelli's didn't fare too well in the recent Car & Driver tests either. I always thought they were a little hard...not too grippy. The C&D tests confirmed it.

I agree w/the tire wheel deal. It's a good tire for what it is.thump_rrr said:I hate to disagree with people again but................
As far as grip goes they're pretty good I got a 1.95 sec. 60ft. with them. The best I could get with my 275/40 17 BFG Drag Radials is 1.77 sec.
The real problem with them is the size Ford chose to use. They chose a 55 series tire which has more sidewall than most enthusiasts would like. They knew that they hit a homerun with the Mustang and no matter what wheel and tire size they used they would sell them all. I said it to all my friends from the moment I saw the final production version that in 2-3 years the car will probably have a hood scoop and 3/4 panel "brake ducts" from the factory.

About the brake scoops and such. I'd like to see the 1/4 glass removed and vents installed and functional like the 65 fastback. Not into the bolt on look since it's so obvious.
