I apologize for not keeping current on this... there was a 2+ month break in there that I really didn't touch the car... life gets in the way sometimes...
Well we got the motor in for good.. set up the cooling system and pulleys.. alternator & battery are in... still need to sort out gauges and fuel system.. and exhaust... and a million little things...
my buddy still thinks it might fire up for the first time in over 20 years... shortly... getting excited about the project again...

Rob, my old friend, give me a call anytime, but you have a plethora of great choices, because almost any of the many great 200 TWR tires out there will work fantastic on your Mustang. Knowing how much you will actually drive the " Project Pony," the tread life is more than adequate for you with all of them, though some have better advantages for rain, noise, turn in , etc. but from Rival 1.5Ss, to RT660s, Conti Extreme Force, Bridgestone RE71RSs, A052, and maybe even Goodyear Supercar F1 3s ( may be too tall ). You are in good shape and all will help the Pony prance with the best of them.
