Well I am currently rebuilding the entire suspension system on my GT. Shocks, Struts, Lowering Springs, Camber Plates, Sway Bars front, rear, Controller Arms. The tires will be going on Vossen VVSCV3 Wheels.
I live in the Pacific Northwest so I need a good tire that grips and handles well rain or shine with some snow thrown in there every so often. That is if I get caught out when it snows because I will not take this Mustang out in the snow just not going to happen. Someone would run into me here.
I can say that the SS is primarily focused on corners. It will be OK in the wet, but would not ever run them in the snow myself. What about the possibilty of running a set of A/S tires on your OEM wheels and get a go with the SS on your Vossens? This will allow you to get MUCH more out of your suspension, as your tires are far and away the most important part of grip on the road.
Seattle is a tough deal, for a car that is looking to have grip year round I am fortunate to live in an area where I can run my "Summer" wheels, from April to October. Little rain here/there, but don't DD my ride, so not a big deal for me.
As for suspension... you are building to take corners, but will not be able to really get the most of it, on an A/S tire To me, it looks like you should consider the alternate set of wheels thing, to justify the upgrades of suspension.
