Performance Tires

Post by Reflex60 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 6:42 am

Hi guys. I am looking for a set of all-season tires for my 2008 Ford Mustang. So far, I have check out Toyo tires' Proxes 4 Plus tires. Any other recommendations?

Buy a set of Michelin tires. Read Consumer Reports.

I usually get my car-truck-van tires through Great selection, good reviews, and usually cheaper even with shipping.
past afflictions include limey motocars and bikes, R60/2, R65ls, and a Citroen.

You have no location listed. Not knowing where you are going to be driving makes "all season" into too many choices to list.

In recent years Michelin has gone downhill & are overpriced IMO. I loved the ORIGINAL Michelin X pattern - but near un-obtainium today.
I am running a set of FALKEN tires on my Miata. they handle great at all speeds, & are a bargain. Very satisfied with them. They might have your size.

I second TireRack dot com. You can search via similar vehicles to yours and read reviews from other guys and their driving styles. They rate wear, traction and a host of other categories. And best bang for your buck. Even if you don't purchase from them you can utilize the reviews.
