Here's what she looks like with 18x9.5 GT 500 rims and 265/40 ZR 18 Pilot Super Sports all around. Brembo kit goes on Friday!

Looks great Pete! How are the Pilots treating you? From what I've seen, most run Nittos, Pirellis or Goodyears, haven't heard many review on Pilots from the mustang crowd.

I can only compare them to Pirellis, but it felt like going from combat boots to track shoes. The Pirellis wound do nothing but spin under heavy acceleration; the Super Sports grab and go. Great turn-in, all around very impressive.

Pete, the wheels look great. Do you know what the weight is of the GT500 18X9.5 wheel?

Anyone run the Continental Extreme Contact DW's? Would like to hear first hand experience with these tires? I am seriously thinking of purchasing those since they supposedly have high performance for less money. They also come with a 60 day trial.
