Michelin Pilot Sport 3 Vs. Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

minimadmotorman Aug 18, 2014

  1. The time has come to get a full set of boots on the Quattro Avant and I am torn between the tyres above!
    The price difference is negligible however the Michelin's will come with a £70 fuel card.
    My tyre size is 235/45/17 XL 97Y's

    Does anyone have any feedback/advice?

    Review's seem to point to the Eagle F1 being slightly quieter but I can't find any review of them on B6's

    Those are the exact size tyres I have on my car and I went for the Goodyears and am very happy with them.
    Got my tyres from Camskill.

    The Goodyears there are £86 each the Michelins more like £98 . I went for Goodyears as they are better in the wet grip than the Michelins and a bit cheaper. If your primary concern is dry grip then the Michelins would probably be the better choice.
    You aren't really going wrong with either tyre.

    They don't do the michelin Pilot Supersport in this size.Seems that the smallest size is 18 inches
     
  6. Think its going to end up being the Goodyears tbh!

    i fitted the goodyears to my tqs and they totally transformed the car, although the car came with nexens when I bought it and they were terrible. I would definitely buy them again. and they look great.

    I had 4 (235 45 17) of the goodyears fitted yesterday and they are definitely quiter than the bridgestones I had previously. Too early really to tell how well they grip.

    I went through all this debate and ended up with Eagle F1. Nice looking and awesome rim protector too. Nice tyres.
