Pirelli PZERO NERO 235/55R17 tires came with my V-6 with the Pony Package

On another new Mustang, I saw that it had BFGoodrich tires.

How many different brands are used on the Mustangs and what are the better makes?

I read in the Ford Warranty guide where they have several different brands of tires, but I am not sure if this is showing all the brands of tires used on Mustangs or on all Ford vehicles in general.

I just notice that there isn't any Firestone tires on the list :rolleyes:

Ford 17" OEM tires SUK bigtime!

The OEM tires on the 16" V-6 wheels are great. They lose traction gradually and give an ever so cushy ride. The OEM tires on the 17" GT wheels are only good for top speed runs on a smooth highway. They lose tractions suddenly and give a butt kickin' a$$ jarring ride. Zero for the Pirellis!

I am going to upgrade to OEM 17" Porsche Cayenne tires just as soon as I manage to grind off the rubber on the Pirellis with bench press wheelies. :mad:

Even the smell of burning rubber won't stink as much as the cruddy job Ford did in selecting that tire.

The BFG Traction TA's, standard on the 16" v-6 Mustang are crap. Cheap, borderline dangerous(traction wise) tires. Chick mama Dodge Durango driver tried to kill me in my V-6 stang, my stang got super squirelly in a panic stop, while trying to manuver.:what: The BFG KDWs I have now are fantastic, they helped save me twice now.:winks

Why did Ford go with narrower tires on the 05-06's? Is it propertional or are the 235/50's narrower than the 245/45's that used to come standard? Not a big difference I guess but i'm curious as to why they did that.
