The 2006 comes with 235/55's... can I fit 255's on the same 17" rims or will I need wider rims to do that?

I heard someone saying 255's were what they had.

Hope someone can help :)

You don't need new rims for 255/50/17's Here are a couple pics of my Fuzion ZRi's.

Nice tires, do you know how they perform compared to the p zeros? How are they in the rain? And how much did they cost you?

Meats

Nice meats Adrenal :) They do look good. I looked through the owner's manual and it carefully did not mention what tire sizes were applicable for the Mustang. I figure they just know you are going to change every dang thing you can reach, to make it your own [rubbing hands together] and they might as well not try to discourage you by giving you "limits" on things like "Maximum Tread Width".


Would we be Americans if we played entirely within the safe confines of the rules?

Called tire rack about your tires...as they are cheap, and look cool. But they told me they are only good for summer driving, and to forget about them when temperatures drop below 50...instead they suggeted a BF Goodrich tire...that has those dimensions...I'm disapointed!

if you get them be sure to post pics. My car is in hybernation, but I really want these tires.
Excellent prices! Nice looking tires as well. And V rated so I can drive them a little longer with the harder tread composition?

You are in Canada? What part? It has to be colder than here, as all of Canada is North of me.

Canada used to be spelled CND but the Newfies had to spell it for the Americans, when asked where they were from... "C-eh? N-eh? D-eh?"

I don't know what the tread composition number means. The V rating indicates sustained speed of 149 m/h.
