    Seeing as people seem to be raving about Goodyear EAGLE F1 GS-D3 tyres I have decided to see for myself. I've been pricing them up on www.mytyres.co.uk but there are two slightly different specifications; 205/55 R16 91W BSW and 205/55 R16 91W. I've had a look on the Goodyear website and found nothing. A google indicates that BSW could stand for Black Side Wall, but I'd have thought most tyres were black. :blink:

    Does anyone know what the difference is, apart from £10?

    Found this:

    BSW = Black Side Wall there is no difference between the tires only the looks there is a black 3d ring on the wall.

    Just a cosmetic thing, presumably they are older stock? Although there is also something about GSD'3 being either from Germany or the Far East, could also relate to that.
