Default 225/60R15 Tires

Wanting to keep the original 15 inch wheels. Not wanting the Goodyear VR60 tires as this is not a show car. No liking the rock hard 400-700 tires. What other options if you want to drive your Mustang?

I've had BFG Radial T/A tires on a few classic Mustangs and really liked them (they're now a bit pricey). I have General Altimax RT43 tires on the wife's daily and they were a great improvement over the OEM Continental tires. Another choice would be Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring A/S, although I have no feedback to provide on those. Cooper Cobra Radial GT tires are not available in P225/60R15.

Yep,

Been using BF Goodrich Radial T/As for many years even my old LT1 9C1 Caprice. They hung on the roads when I go WOT. They are very reliable and smooth. Trustworthy muscle car era tires.

That saying, when I bought the Caprice she had Dunlop (cant remember model of them since 2005) 255s tires all around and I could lay tire marks at 30 mph and swerve like a snake. When I went to BFG, she hung on and went like a bat out of the hole at 30 mph. No more black marks. Unless from full stop, different story but you get what I am saying.
