Default 2014 OEM Tires.

My 2010 Mustang GT Premium had 19" Pirrelli P-Zeros on it from the factory. My new 2014 Mustang GT Premium with Brembo Brakes and 19" wheels has Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires on it from the factory. All the press states Pirrelli as the OEM tire. What's the deal?

My 2014 track pack GT has the Pirelli's. Maybe some guy bought a GT500 and didn't want his tires so the dealership swapped them for yours? If it is a big deal to you I would go back to the dealership and work something out. I'm sure those Supercar tires have a shorter life than the Pirelli's and are more expensive to replace. Your wet weather traction might be worse, too?

I did see a 2011 article this morning that said Eagle F1 Supercars were going to be OEM on some 2014 models. My 2014 is pretty much a high end GT.

Premium
Automatic
Navigation
Brembos w/19" wheels
Leather
Stickered out @ $42700

I'm guessing they come on a few combinations. The Eagles are rated for wet pretty well but not snow/ice.

I believe only packages that come with staggered setup come with the Eagles and non-staggered come with P-Zeros... Could be wrong on this though

Did you happen to buy the Track Pack by chance?

Cause I know the V6 premium /w performance package came
with summers only. Fords site says when you look at packages
that the Track Pack comes with 255/40 summers only otherwise
comes with 245/45 P-Zero A/S.

so 1 of two things happened... you either bought Track Pack or
someone bought a vehicle with them and wanted them swapped
out for something else that was on your vehicle.

No "Track Pack".

Window sticker does list the "P255/40R19 TIRE" between "BREMBO BRAKE PACKAGE" and "19" PREM PAINTED ALUM WHEEL" so apparently it came with the size tires I got.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say its because of the auto tranny. While I was purchasing my '13 I looked at their showroom GT and it had Goodyears but it was an auto. Maybe its a weight thing.

I think it is transmission dependent. The dealer that I bought my car from has had several V6 performance packs, the manuals had the Pirelli's, and the autos had the Goodyears. I noticed the same thing on the GT Brembo packages, that the autos used Goodyears, while the manuals used Pirelli's. The Goodyears have roughly the same life as the Pirellis and cost a little less to replace. That being said, there are much better options for the same cost as either of these tires.

I'm with these guys It has to be transmission related.
On 2011-12's the Brembo Pkg came with P Zero's on coupes and F1's on Convertibles. Brembo GT's were manual trans only.
