So Step Two in my 2013 MKS Performance upgrading.......
« on: September 14, 2021, 09:58:57 AM »
Step One was replacing all the Mag-Ride shocks, big improvement to the handling (but NEVER use the "Comfort" setting!) So off to decide my next step which WAS a catch-can but a few rainy days on a hot road told me otherwise. The stock Eagle RS-A's (which were only at about half treadwear) would literally slide me all over the place during a corner at anything over a crawl!

So new tires it is.

After about a week of research and budgeting, I decided on a new set of BF Goodridge G-Force Comp-2 A/S Plus 20" (Stock size for my MKS Eco). The in-depth test and review on Tire Rack sealed the deal for me. An amazing improvement in Dry and Wet handling. The wet improvement was quite remarkable! When the Suspention is set in the "Sport" mode, the car is extremely resposive to the slightest imput. I haven't had my first New England Winter weather test yet, but will update this post when the first snows arrive. Overall, for the budget minded, these tires have been a wonderful addition to my MKS.
