    Just confirmation (if you needed it) that Goodyear F1's are excellent

    Shame they've stopped doing them really.

    Have just been out in the car for the first drive since getting the new wheels & tyres put on. Definitely need more air in them. I'll set them at 38 this weekend.

    My last set of tyres were F1 GSD3s and I thought they were absolutely fantastic!

    When it came time to replace I was told there was no stock of the right size about so I took Excellence instead; I didn't think they'd become end-of-life though. They must have something good lined up then? It'd be daft to kill such a strong product if you didn't have something as good/better to follow it...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    You can still get them but I was told they are trying to supercede them with the F1 Asymmetric as they've been around forever. They're still on goodyears web site.

    I love my F1's.

    Interesting that they didnt seem to test the Toyos which seem for the FWD peopl at least, to be the next best thing to F1s

    A word of advice from my experience,

    I run mine at 36psi all round, I used a faulty guage at esso the other day and put 40/41 in and it was like driving on Ice!! I nearly spun the car.

    I have found that 37 is a little understeery, where as 36psi offers the best all round performance.
