Recently installed (Forum recommended) Bridgestone tires. Love them for all the reasons everyone loves them!

When I back out of my mancave (on the porcelain floors) the new tires (especially the fronts) squeak.

Everything else seems fine. Ford (SVT) dealer did the install..

Thoughts?

Mad grip!

But probably has something to do with caster/camber and toe.

The more you drive the less they'll squeak, its to do with caster/camber. The tires just need to "flatten in" to the suspension geometry.

You probably have a polished floor in your mancave. All tires will squeak when turned on a polished surface even my truck tires which have 60K miles on them squeak on my epoxied floor.

Correct.. THe original Goodyears were quiet (and exciting in a not good way!)
