I had the misfortune of blowing out the sidewalls of two of the Gatorbacks (don't ask), so now I have to get two new tires. My question is whether I can mix tires and have one type of tire on the fronts and a different on the rear.

Personally I hate the Gatorbacks, and was looking to get a BFG Comp T/A ZR or the newer BFG G-Force T/A KDW. If I put these on the rear and keep the Gators on the front am I going to encounter any probs?

Also, has anyone compared the Comp T/As to the G-Force T/A KDWs? I loved the Comps on my 95 GT, so I'm edging toward them. But I also want the performance. But the one reason I hate the Gatorbacks is because I feel like the breakaway is much too fast. My Comp T/As had a very smooth controllable breakaway, so I always knew what the rear (and front) end was doing.

It shouldn't be a huge problem. That said, it won't be optimal either. Add more grip in the rear coupled with a Mustang known for understeer may make for an exciting ride at the limit. Putting the new tires on the front may work better.IMO

The KDWs have more grip than the Gatorbacks? I thought they had slightly less but with better transition from grip to slide.

As for putting the Gators on the back, part of the reason I put the KDWs on the back is I hated the way the Gators felt. That breakaway prob.

And hey, if i understeer the sh*t out of the Gators, that just means I can get KDWs all around that much sooner. :smile:

One last note, the KDWs just look so damn mean. Those huge patches of tread. And I think they're a little wider than the Gators even though they're both 245s. Either way they look sweet.
