Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric installed

Previous tire experience:

Bridgestone RE010 (MX-5)

Dunlop SP9000 (MX-5)

Michelin Pilot Sport (M Coupe)

Yokohama ES100 (M Coupe)

Michelin Pilot Sport Rib (986S)

Michelin Pilot Sport 2 (986S)

Continental ContiSportContact 2 (997)

The Conti's were on the inner wear bars at the rear, and had about 2/32" above the bar left on front. They tracked and handled well, but were very loud and very harsh. More than expected even for their state of wear. It's pretty consistent with what I've read.

I've never driven Goodyear, but have heard very good things about the GS-D3 from drivers I believe.

First impression, these Goodyears are quiet. Really quiet. The sidewalls seem responsive, yet very comfortable. In terms of ride comfort, they're alot like the Micheline PS2. Head-to-head with the PS2, the Goodyear weighs 1-2 lbs more per tire, but has 1/32" more tread (10/32 vs 11/32). Load capacity, heat, and contact patch sizes are the same. The Goodyear has a higher tire wear rating, but I have read that comparing this rating across brands is meaningless.

N.B., the Tire Rack has a photo of the tread on these tires. It doesn't look anything like mine. For an accurate picture of the tread pattern, go to Goodyear's web site.

So far, so good. The caveat is that it's always unfair to compare a new tire to a worn one. ANY new tire is going to feel alot better than a worn one. I'll update as time goes by and I put some DE laps on them.
