Sizes don't look very Mustang friendly.

sizes look right in-line with Street Touring rules...

If their sidewalls are any bit as soft as their predecessor (the RS2), I would avoid these. "Mushy" doesn't even begin to capture how bad they were.

Yes, I did own a set of RS2's in the past. Call it being a victim of the hype.

Those tires were so incredibly bad I dumped them on ebay after 2 weeks use; I just coudn't stand them. And the compound wasn't even that grippy.

You want a real ST tire go with Kumho, Dunlop, or if you can afford it the 'Stones or Yokohamas.

With cool ass flames like that molded into the tread, I'm definitely going to get a set of those....NOT!
