1982 Tires

Get the Look You Want with Brand New Tires

Any time you purchase a used car, it’s a good idea to take a look at the tires. It’s unlikely that your 1982 Mustang’s tires are the same ones it came with from the factory, but even so, an older set of tires can suffer from cracking, flatspotting, and other symptoms of neglect that can diminish their ability to perform. The best way to be sure you’re getting the road holding performance you expect from your Mustang is by mounting up a new set.

When replacing your 1982 Mustang’s tires, there are a lot of factors that come into play. Let’s take a look at some of the things you should think about when picking out a new set of tires:

• Tire Size: For many drivers, new tires are necessitated by a wheel upgrade. From the factory, a 1982 Mustang’s tires were size 185 in the rear. For the sake of comparison, a Toyota Prius currently uses 195 width tires. Wider tires offer more grip, but also increase rolling resistance, so you want to find a size that will compliment your car’s power output to achieve maximum performance.
• Tread Pattern: Tire manufacturers do a lot to make their products look slick, but the tread pattern on your tires is about more than just looks. More aggressive tires use larger tread blocks with less siping (the channels that allow water to exit a tire are called ‘sipes’) to deliver maximum grip. Street performance tires like the Nitto NT555 strike a balance by using an aggressive tread with enough siping for safe use in the rain.
• Tread Wear Rating: All street tires come with a tread wear rating that expresses how quickly the tire will wear down under normal use. A lower number indicates that the tire will wear down more quickly than a higher number. Typically, a tire with a lower tread wear rating offers better grip because it uses softer rubber, but new rubber compounds are changing this. It’s very likely that the tires you choose to mount on your car today will have a higher tread wear rating and better grip than a set of factory 1982 Mustang tires.

Whether you’re looking for classically-styled tires or a set built for high performance, CJ Pony Parts can help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Take a look at our selection, and you can be confident that you’re getting the best for your 1982 Mustang!
