Question New Tires....

Hey everyone. It's been a while since I've been in the market for new tires for my Mustang, so I'm reaching out see what the latest and greatest are these days. I currently have Nitto 555R's in the rear and 555's in the front. My Stang is garage kept and not my primary vehicle. Can I get some feedback on which way I should go these days? I would know about the best traction, mileage, price, and handling in the rain or wet. A while ago I was considering Good Year or Mickey T's. Thanks in advance....

I've had decent luck with the Mickey DOT 275/50/15's on a set of dual bolt patter weld 10 holes. Not the greatest in the rain, but I'm able to pull some 1.80 60's in my turd-stang.....

Been rockin' Toyo's Proxes TQ for a few years now. Good tire with decent rain grip.

I love me a set of Proxes on a little light weight Honda, it's a very good tire.
