Yes Brockton, I did feel a difference. I felt a major difference when I was on the highway the other day doing 80 and everyone decided to slam their brakes on in the fast lane and I hit mine and it was solid! I am glad I installed it. Gives me good piece of mind for my firewall as well lol.

Today was a great day! Went and got a protune, and Cobb bpv which replaced my forge bpv and a grimmspeed electric boost control solenoid installed. Very happy with the results, 294 awhp with 311 tq. It was done on a mustang dyno.

Thanks Brandon. I was pretty satisfied with the results myself.
Next is sway bars and end links to help the suspension out, I think. That probably won't be until the spring though.

I purchased them from tirerack.com. I bought the wheels and tires at the same time. They mounted and balanced them before they shipped them. I received them and was able to install them immediately. I'll see if I can find a link. Those are 16" wheels I have.

Yes. They're snow tires. They're softer/squishier feeling. not much for performance and handling. I didn't buy them for making hard turns though. I got the smaller wheel which is thinner than stock to help through the snow. I live in buffalo and get a good amount of snow so for me it was worth it. They are really nice in the snow though. What are you looking for out of the tires?

Pretty much same reasons for the winters that i don't mind scratching. So far this winter has been a nightmare wit the stock rims which i love how they look and don't want to ruin them, but its hard with all the snow and I think i bent one of my wheels already so i had enough of using them in these bad roads. Im in nyc and after snow storms our roads turn into the floors of hell. They all start falling apart.

This is what I got. The lugs were included and the mounting and balancing was included in the prices for the tires and wheels. Mind you this is when I bought them 2 seasons ago. This is my second winter with them.

Yup, worthy investment if you have bad, snowy weather.
