Yeah, tirerack.com had some good ones too. It just seems like all 20's are expensive. As soon as I get on my computer I'll post it.

The more i think about it, the more i think you are right lol. I think have decided on what i will go with. Now since you are being most helpful right now, i will fire a few more questions if you choose to entertain them fantastic!

Never having sold anything online ever, should i just ebay the stock (GT Track Pack) wheels and tires? Think like 1000 for the combo is too much if they have 24 miles on them lol?

Here is a tough one, so I will only have a couple weeks in Texas before i have to drive back to California. I am pretty concerned with the breakin process and have a somewhat good general idea. What is the minimum amount of miles i should put on this car before i attempt it (1508 miles to my destination)? What are some tips and tricks here, this has really got me nervous lol.

Is the TPMS an absolute or is it more of a luxury thing?

Thanks again for everything let me know if you have any questions as well lol =)

I wouldn't worry about the break in at that point. Ford wouldn't build a motor that you couldn't put 2,000 miles on the day you drive it off the showroom floor. I'd change the oil in it when I got back, and I would use a synthetic blend. I think a lot of guys use the motocraft, which is what Ford recomends.

So I should do the first one at 500 miles then another at 3000 correct? I should be fine as long as i do not just sit at one RPM correct? Just make sure i vary speed and take frequent breaks? I agree that i shouldnt have to worry about it but i am still a wee bit nervous lol. 1995 is alot different then a brand new 2013 lol. Thanks!

I changed the oil in my 2012 the first time at 1500 miles. You still got the break in oil running through the motor and I've heard you don't want to change it so soon so I waited till 1500. I changed the oil again at 3,000 miles and then I run anywhere between 4,000-5,000 miles between oil changes now. I would invest in a JLT oil seperator, its a little over $100 on American Muscle (where i buy ALL my mustang parts) and it will trap the oil running back to the intake from the motor. Especially if you start to do some bolt on mods. My first 3 purchases were the axle back exhaust, a JLT CAI, and a tuner from Bama. When you buy the tuner you get the 3 free tunes (street, performance, and race) and free tunes for life. Also I wouldn't run anything lower than 93 octane either. All 3 of my tunes are set up for 93 octane.
