    Me too, looking for ideas. 255/40/19 for me. At least, that's what is on it now.

    It all depends on what your goals are.

    Michelin pilot super sport and continental extreme contact are both well loved by the Shelby and track guys. Not cheap but love my super sports.

    Iím thinking I want to go with a slightly taller tire. Is there a way to adjust the speedometer without getting a tuner? I did this on my yellow stang with the tuner, but, donít want that expense.

    Not sure on your car. The 2005-2013 need a change in the tune, or go to the dealer to do it. I think itís like $60 for ford to update the car.

    Re: I need tires - 2013 GT Convertible

    The reason I am considering a taller tire is to get a little more sidewall, which, I believe will give me a slightly better ride. With the 19s I feel every bump in the road. Does that make sense, or am I dreaming?
