I am having a hard time finding replacement tires for my 2006 GT. Are these tire sizes not manufactured anymore. Does anyone have an answer for tire availability?

Thank you.

You looking for Bridgestones? Recent thread about people that got them with fresh (ish) date codes.

There's some recent discussion just a few posts below yours https://www.fordgtforum.com/forums/threads/tires.37706/

But I have new Goodyear's on mine, and plenty of people post quite often that the Bridgestone substitutes are readily available, with recent production dates, and are better tires than the Goodyear's.

The Goodyear's came in but have 10 year old production dates...I guess we go with the Bridgestones...
Thanks for the info guys!

The pleasant surprize is how much better the Bridgestone tires are.

I was able to get Bridgestones from my local Firestone/Bridgestone dealer. Rears has a 2021 build date and fronts are 2020. Picking up Monday.

Yes, I just recently got a full set of Bridgestones (not my first) and I requested date codes prior to shipping, and they were all fresh.

Just to confirm as I am in process of ordering new tires as I still have the original tires on the car with 1200 miles, does this new size have any issues with rubbing (either at full turn or when articulating up a driveway)?

Hello everybody… I’m a proud new owner of a 2005 Red Ford GT with 878 miles. I put 100 miles on my car last week. I’m in heaven. Great car!

My local tire store manager found a GT owner that said these tires fit:

Bridestone Potenza
F: 265/40R18
R: 345/35R19

I ordered them. I will confirm when I get them installed.

Does anybody have experience and know if they will fit?
