'06 Mustang tire size
I just ordered a 2006 GT with a five speed.
In checking around, almost no ordinary tire manufacturer (Michelin,
Bridgestone, etc.) has tires for the new mustang. 235/55; but who cares?
What is the widest tire I can fit on the new Mustang? Anyone done it yet?
A Cobra passed me about a week ago (sounded awesome!) and it looked like it
had 255's on it but if I recall, that car has a different rear end than
I also own a Jaguar XJ-12 and wonder how involved it would be to put that
independent, rear suspension, in my new Mustang. When I first saw the new
Explorer and noticed that it had an independent suspension in the rear, I
immediately thought of all the new applications for that :) The disc brakes
do not appear to be mounted right next to the differential though, so it
would not handle *quite* as well as the Jaguar version, I suppose, but
still, to have a decent sports car with all independent suspension... should
handle like a go-cart or a volkswagen bug.
Anyway, anyone who knows how wide a tire will fit the 2006 Mustang, without
modifying the car, please let me know.
