If you look up the specs in that link you posted then you'll see all the specs. That should give you a good idea. You can then compare it to other tire specs. I tend to think the Michelin Pilot SS...

You will def need a tune. I would not recommend driving that car without one. You can get a canned tune, a custom tune, or a dyno tune. The cheapest route for a Mustang with basic mods is probably a...
