He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars!

Time For New Tires

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at trying either the Firehawk Indy 500, or the Bridgestone Pole Position, staggered, on mine. Hoping for more straight line grip, but I do like an occasional mountain run. Any thoughts? I'm running 555's now and love them in the curves, but not so much at hookup. TIA...

Running B-Stone Potenza S-04 Pole Positions on all four corners (staggered) on my 2008 Saleen Gurney car.

 

They are INCREDIBLY sticky and ride decent for low pro performance tires. I got them on sale too, and love them!

 

The Gurney is an S/C'd 4.6 with 460 horses , and they handle the power wonderfully! I took the risk from reading reviews, and have been VERY happy! :victory:

Mickey Thompson Street comp 275/40-18 on 10” Forgestars on all four corners. 300 treadwear tire but much better than 10 year OEs on 235. Turn in is tremendous now. Almost perfectly OE size. Plenty of tire height and width wise.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports, awesome tire! Best grip I've had at the track so far on a street tire and has a 300 tread wear rating for what that's worth. I'm no longer running 18" wheels so I'm not sure about sizes with that wheel. I think the BFG Sport Comp 2 looks interesting also, the pricing and tread wear ratings with the grip it is supposed to provide is compelling.

I’ve been running the BFG Sport Comp2s, and they have been great.  I’ve even used two different sets at the track, and they perform very well in all temps and even rain on the track.  First set is getting old (age-wise even though still plenty of tread) so I'm looking to upgrade to some better track worthy tires....Bridgestone RE-71 or Falken 615K or Hankook RS4.  These three were recommendations from the Track Mustangs Online website.  I’m told they are decent on the street but make a huge difference on the track.
