Traction and the 2013,14 GT500

The stock Goodyears on my 2014 GT500 had no traction in 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd gear. If I put the throttle down, the wheels would spin. I found it to be unsafe. I put on a set of 295/35/20 Nitto Invos and the difference was like night and day. The tires are wider, but fit the stock wheels well, and the tread is a LOT stickier. The car hooks up easily now. Anybody else change out their tires?

I've heard great things about that brand of tires and have to wonder why they don't use them from the factory? Maybe they get an excellent deal from Goodyear because they purchase so many sets?

Maybe Nitto needs to hire Goodyear's sales rep! LOL! Michelin has some great tires too.

Michelin are great tires too indeed. I think the 2011-2014 Shelby GT350s used the Pilots.
