    I need some rubber for my new BE wheels.

    I previously had F1s on my LCR and MPS on my Boxster.

    I was going to go back to F1s as there are appears to be good write ups of them. However, I can't find them anywhere. Spoken to a few place and they say that the F1 Asymmetrics in the 225/40/18 size have been on backorder for over a month.

    So what can people recommend, go for F1 GSD3s or anything else?

    Well I quite like the GSD3 as well if you can get hold of them, ran them on my previous wheels and my Mrs has them on her MX-5 Sport.

    Have you tried Vredestein's mate? I normally purchase F1's but recently changed to Vredesteins Sessanta's.

    Very impressed and cheaper than the F1s IIRC
