No way.
Much better tires out there for the price
Hankooks are fine, I've got nearly 25000 miles on mine and I would call myself a very aggressive driver. They've lasted longer and handle equal to more expensive name brands I've owned.

Wally - Where in the heck did you get those?!?! I want a pair NOW!

As for choosing the Hankooks, that was about the only set I could find in Denver on almost no notice, so it is what is it is. I could have put all seasons on the car, but...

As for the comment about V8 and blower and needing a wider wheel, this car has full Ford Racing suspension and the Ford Racing Supercharger. My wife drives it more than I do by far which is fine. It blocks the Shelby in the garage, so yeah, please drive it honey! I have not tried to run it with the tcs off, but it wont break traction with the hankooks, larger wheel and tcs active. Which seriously, since the wife is driving it, Im fine. It is also an automatic with stock rear end.

This of course is going to lead into another post shortly about something like an AM Bama tune on this car and folks thoughts. She is already wanting faster. Im a little nervous because it's a 'vert and not a coupe. Last thing I need is for her to get hurt.
