Goodyear puts 225/50VR16 Gatorbacks back into production


Recommended Posts

Can't find much on the web but according to this ebay seller Goodyear has re-released the Gatorback tire which is great news for anyone restoring a 1985 to 1990 Mustang GT.

I had both a 1986 and 1988 Mustang GT which came new with these tires. I couldn't wait to get them off. They have really bad wet traction. In my opinion there are only good for a show car and not a driver.

 

 

When the Gatorbacks came out in the early 1980's they were a pretty decent hi-perf tire. Compared to today's tires they are no longer the ticket, especially at that price.

 

What they are good for is someone restoring a 80's Fox body who desires the stock look.
