Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar
20 October 2013
Summary: Do not buy this tyres. My new Chrysler came with the set on it and after 6 alignments and balancing within 10months the tyre is gone after 16000Kms. While the handling is good it is too much money to be spent on these tyres which did not last more than 16000kms.
Summary: I have a 2009 bmw 330d touring se (245 bhp) remapped to about 290 - 300 bhp and 430+ ft lb's I had replaced my 4 Bridgestone run flats for normal Goodyear eagle f1 asymmetric in 20 June 2012. After less than 5 months and less than 6000 miles the rear tyres are on and below legal limit (1.6ml) and need to be replaced ASAP. While I would say I have a reasonably heavy right foot, my driving style is not damaging to tyres and I spend more than 50% on motorway standard roads.
Summary: Had all four tyres changed a year ago and picked Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrics based on the reviews on this website. I've done 16,000 mostly motorway miles and am devastated that the front tyres are now due for replacement, particularly given they cost me Â£225 a corner. For me, the tyres score well in every area except wear and for that reason, I shall not be buying them again.
Summary: Having opted for the 20 inch rims I noticed that after only 13000 miles the front tyres were completely worn. I have replaced them with Pirelli P Zero and having done only another 2000 miles the jury is still out on these very expensive replacements. The rear tyres are still probably only 25% worn which is what I would expect. Surely a set of tryes should last longer than 12k miles especially since the car is driven modestly on normal roads.
Summary: On a Corvette C6, so tyre size shown is for the rears; also had 245/40R18 88Y on the front. They're the OEM tyres, and I've just come to the end of my second set at 26K miles (so each set lasts about 13K miles). Dry grip is pretty good, but I've marked it down because dry traction is poor as the tyres get worn - even 2nd gear launches (auto!) will light up the rears. In the wet, the grip and traction is poor...especially so in cool weather.
Summary: I replaced all 4 tyres on the Audi after having all 4 wheels refurbed not long after purchase. The F1's came highly recommended for the Audi (B6) and weren't badly priced. Initial reports (when ditching the conti's that they replaced) were very good. Low road noise, good handling in both the wet and the dry and, bing non directional allowed me the choice of rotating the wheels (axle to axle - not...well, you know what I mean).
Summary: A tyre of compromise. It has sacrificed wear and road feedback for softer compound rubber giving excellent wet grip. In my opinion after having gone through a set on a Subaru Impreza WRX I can say they are very good in the wet giving grip that you didn't think possible, but realistically on UK roads it'd be pretty foolish to drive "spirtedly" in the wet all the time.
