It’s about time… I’ve been going through speed withdrawals since my last track day and this coming Sunday can’t come soon enough. This should be a good one as I’m finally ditching the stock and worn out Pirelli P Zero tires on my 2013 Mustang GT w/ the track pack. It’s not a crazy car mind you, but considering it was purchased with the sole purpose of being a track rat, I can’t complain as it does its job quite well. The Pirelli’s racked up a total of 9 track days running in the advanced group, and even though they look like there’s still tread (and there is) they’ve been heat cycled to death and are now like driving on a set of lunch trays that have been smeared in nasal discharge (i.e. – boogers).
*New Michelin Pilot Super Sports – WHOOHOOO!
I’m writing this as a preface to the full-on comparison that will follow after this post between the previously mentioned Pirelli P Zero and the Michelin Pilot Super Sports that I just installed a few days ago. Keep in mind also that the car is stock except for a few brake modifications that include Hawk HP+ pads, stainless steel brake lines, and MOTUL RBF600 fluid. Tire size has remains stock at 255/40/19.
*Old hockey puck Pirelli tires…
So, with that being said, check back early next week and I’ll give you my full comparison with photos and details!
