Quiet and grip well

published

So I've had these for a day and immediately noticed how much better they were compared to my outgoing Pirellis.

Had a massive downpour here today so a great day to get them fitted and see wet weather performance and wow they stick the car to the road like glue! Driving on metro roads and very smooth, very happy.

Had them fitted to my 2005 VZ SS at 235/40r18.
Only thing i forgot to ask the guy at beaurepairs was the recommended running pressure at my size.

Purchased in February 2021.

Excellent Mileage

published

I can't fault these tyres. Now on my third set (Commodore 3.0L). First set 86,500km, second set 91,500km and only changed due to a puncture in one. They are rotated every service (15,000km) as the rears wear quicker. Excellent grip in both wet and dry.

Purchased in October 2021 at Beaurepaires for $265.00.

Very pleased with my Goodyear F1 tyres, I've had Toyo comfort tyres, coopers, hankooks and many more. I'm a trade technician and trained on VW, Peugeot, Audi and Suzuki. I've been involved in offloading, kart racing, street machine drag racing and owned over 30 cars. First Good years I've every owned. Highly rate them as I've done about 5000km and they look like new. I've done 30 green slip runs at the drags with slight wheel spin to flick the water off and achieved a great 12.9sec quarter mile on a bad 30kph head wind. I cruise long distance going on holidays and have no complaints. I drive hard on tyres but keep my pressure up and like low noise tyres. Will be buying again. 10/10

Purchased in February 2021 at Holden Dealers for $1,400.00.

Very smooth tyres.

This is the first time I put Goodyear’s on my car. Had other premium brands costing a lot more in the past but these tyres are a lot smoother as well as being great in the wet. Highly recommended.

Extra grip in the wet

published

Great in the wet they push the water away
They have already outlasted the Tyers they replaced
i feel more in control of my car during cornering and braking and my car just seems to hold the road better
The service people at Coburg Tyers are just great
I would recommend them to anyone

not a performance tyre

published

positive first - very good wet grip when new. Unfortunately that's all these tyres have going for them
In the dry they are rubbish. Response to steering input is slow with big slip angle apparent and they start protesting early when put under lateral load (queue understeer and sliding). Very poor heat tolerance with what little grip they have diminishing after a couple of km of spirited driving on a windy road. After 5000 km on these they have lots of tread depth left however the rubber has hardened and chipping is apparent across the face of the tread.
They are now dangerous and can only be driven on very sedately without the rear breaking loose - i am throwing these away and replacing with michelins PS4 or bridgestone RE003

So far so good

published

What can I say, had these tyres on for around 5,000km and they are nice and quiet for a direction tyre. So far they have, been excellent in the wet and dry conditions. I rate these just as good, if not better than the other premium brand tyres. Highly recommend to shop around and see if you can find the buy 3 get 1 free deal

Offroad and mountain terrain still going strong.

published

Very durable tyres. Have been using the current set for 4 years now and still going strong. Have taken them offroad and in mountain roads and they perform very well. I drive quite aggressive and these tyres perform well under pressure. I haven't felt them slip much and they grip to the road. Very impressed and would definitely buy again.

Great Tyre, Lower road noise

published

Noticeably quieter tyre than the dunlops sp sport 600 that were originally on the car. Great handling tyre and have had them on the car for 4 years now. They still have plenty of tread left on them & I've put them through some harsh corners. Overall they are a great tyre and reasonably priced

I have a full set on a 2007 Subaru Legacy. I've never lost traction, wet or dry, and I don't drive like a nanna. I bought my 205/50R17s for $160 NZD each and my only problem is that they're double the price now! It would be an easy decision to replace with the same tyre if they weren't so expensive. Not sure whether other brands will last as long though.

Very happy with these tyres

published

I got four of these on as a set at a really good price.
Made in Thailand but as soon as they put a full set(4) on the car it was obvious these are much better then the previous set. The car brakes, and corners much better, rain or shine.
I have been using these for a little over two years and done about 30000 km.
Would buy again for sure.

Lasted forever

published

Had these on my 2011 wrx. Great grip for first 80000km. Only just replaced at 100,000km due to running over a piece of metal and one going flat. And that wasnt the easiest 100000km. So great tyres. I am trying a softer grippier tyre next time tho so i know they wont last as long

Great tyre for performance car

published

I bought the tyre last year and was installed on my MY12 WRX. A year after I upgrade my car to WRX STi and installed the tyre on aftermarket rims. Bring the car for track day and utilise it for daily driving with no issue at all.

I pushed the car hard on track and the tyre doing what it can do to maintain the stability of the car. Had no issue on hard breaking and hard cornering.

Good tyre with good price.

Over one year later

published

Well had the F1 s now for over a year and they really are a good tyre. Great turn in, handling braking and quiet and so far, after about 15000 km still little noticeable wear. I am running 36psi front and 33 back - seems to give a neutral stance and not a harsh ride. Bump this up to 38/35 and you notice the bumps.

Just installed a hd sway bar on the back and the change was very subtle and nothing appeared to change, but the car just goes through a corner much faster, but with no change of behaviour. Great!

I suppose there is a better tyre out there somewhere for the price,but that will have to wait until these wear out
