    Yeah i have that ridiculous 200 mph gauge. But my car did come with 3.08 gears back in 99. It was done back then to help mileage and top end, to make the saleen look "more special". Since all have the 3.55 option that mine has. Apparently on the right day my 99, with the 3.08, coulda seen 160.

    On the actual topic, does ford realize that this winter tire demographic makes up maybe 25% of the stang buyers. So what they are saying is they are gonna make the factory tires suck for 75% of the buyers. Sounds smart to me. Just wait a few months till those nice 18's come out with the 255's.

    Yeah that's what I did the two times I went ~100+. One time I went exactly 100 and slowed down to 80, the other time I went 110 and slowed down to 80.
