I am looking at stuffing the 335/30R19 on the rear of my 17, I am wanting to put these on the MRR gt350 wheels (19x11). What would you say is the best front tire combo for the 335?

PJohnston

  • The best combo would depend on how you were using the car road course, drag racing, etc. Feel free to call or chat in and we can go over options that best fit your setup and goals.

I have the 19x9 bembo track pack wheels, could I use the 275/35r19 on the rear without problems, and would it change the handling at all?

DL

  • A 275/35 does fit on 19x9 and the handling may change depending on what rear tire you are currently running.

How closely do the Cobra Style Polished wheels match the stock 2003 Cobra rims? I want to keep my stock front rims and buy the wider 17x10.5 for the rear.

eyenonutting

  • The 17X10.5 polished 03 cobra wheels are close to the factory style wheel on that car but are not exact.

    Great tire

    The nt05 is a great tire for dry conditions...seems to be a better tire at the half way mark very sticky tire....but the nt05 is not a drag tire as the description says although the nt05r is a drag tire ...so don't expect to buy this tire and go to the drag strip and launch your car at 4k you will spin ....as everyone who has a mustang with some power knows traction is difficult with any tire you buy ...but these do very well on cornering, handle nice just not in wet conditions ..no road noise that I know of but hey I cant hear road noise any ways because of the exhaust

    Predictable performance, Value for price

    I went from Nitto 555 extremes in the back to these and its night and day. The 555's would break loose pretty much anytime I hit the gas, forget about launching with them but with these it was a whole new ballgame. They dont grip as well as I would like off the line but definitely much improved. Around corners they are super predictable. I can feel the edge of performance and know when they are gonna break and when they do they are so controllable. I have not tried them in the rain since I dont drive my mustang in the rain. They are quite and for the price they are unbeatable.

    Tons of grip!!

    I have these and a pair of MT Street comps, I try to keep these on when the roads have maybe been a little wet or just use as daily's. these provide awesome traction especially with a staggered setup with some fat 285's although in any track situation or summer racing day I would definitely throw on my MT radials.

    NT05 Review

    So far these tires hook up great for a street radial. I have the 295/35 18's on the rear and they are a big improvement over the 285/35 18 Nitto 555's I previously had. Far better traction off the line. And the price from American Muscle along with the Free shipping can't be beat.
