Conquering the circuit is no easy feat. It demands a beastly engine, a sport-tuned suspension, and… strong-walled tires. Trying to tame the twists and turns of the track will prove impossible with frayed interlocks and fragile rubber.
It comes as no surprise, therefore, that Ford has elevated its 2018 Mustang GT from highway cruiser to fastback champion - fusing it with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
According to Automobile Magazine, the new GT boasts a track-ready stance - resting on four 350/30 R19 tires. Measuring 19-inches x 10.5-inches in the front and 19-inches x 11-inches in the rear, these options promise superior traction. Their wide interlocks grip the pavement, while their reinforced sidewalls can endure every 4-second 0 to 60 run. Aluminum rims deliver sturdy bases, while the six-spoke designs promote enhanced aerodynamics (slicing through the air with greater precision to reduce drag).
The 2018 Mustang delivers extraordinary power - with its 5.0L V8 engine generating 435 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. The necessity of sport-rated tires, therefore, proves undeniable. These Michelin options (which feature specially-treated summer-rated rubber) can endure every rev.
