    Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetrics :icon_thumright:

    Great allrounders.
    Seems to be the tyre of choice at the minute and get a good write up too.

    Shop around and you can get a hold of a pair for £230 ish.

    Good luck.

    You might have trouble finding them at the minute. I have been looking on Camskill for weeks and they are out of stock, emailled and they said there is a problem at the factory - 2/3 weeks delay.

    I tried local suppliers and they have none either - fine if you can wait, I might try the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta which came second in the Evo tyre test behind the F1.

    I ordered four F1's last week (with a local trye fitting company) and only two turned up to be fitted last Wednesday (they also sent two GSD3's). They tried to re-order two more F1's but I had to wait until today for them to arrive. There is definitely a shortage of F1's but you may get some if you can wait.

    Another general vote for the F1 Assymetric here...I had the Bridgestone RE050 from stock and i think everyone here knows my views on those.

    The F1 is much better,but still a bit abrupt when it lets go....I've heard and seen a lot of good views on the new Michelin PS3 so that may be my next choice.

    Depending on how long the F1's last, I may well try the PS3's next. Used PS2's for the last 7+ years and never found them wanting and they lasted quite well.
