Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires

For what its worth some thoughts on my 4th set of tires for the Cobalt SS/tc the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All Seasons:

Cornering wet or dry it infinitely better than the Continental Extreme Contact DWS

Similar dry launching compared the immediately outgoing ContiSportContact2 when they were new and slightly better than the Eagle GT memory in this cold of conditions

Much nicer, smoother break of traction taking off wet, shorter loss with similar throttle input vs any of the aforementioned and very sweet resync with the road. Understersteers less with more throttle input or fast through a corner wet or dry very smooth, predictable, and responsive action.

Measured by car accelerometer and on the phone's it's holding similar lateral g level wet and dry through very commonly driven corners for me to the CSC dry and superior to everything else wet.

Very relaxed feel in comparison to the Eagle GT and CSC2 at low speed, similar to the ExtremeCOntactDWS but with much better precision at low speed, at higher speeds (60+ and only took it to 90 twice today) this tire retains the granularity of steering input control of the CSC2 at every point of its life (one of many reasons why I love it and recommend it to anyone not regularly autoXing or "tracking" it) with the relaxed personality of the DWS. The Eagle GT falls somewhere in the middle in this regard

does not bump steer nearly as bad as the conti's and superior to the Eagle GT. Best tires I have had yet on this car in that sense.

That sums up what I gathered in 50 miles. Haven't even worn off the mold break compound.... I think I am gonna love the next 45K all season miles
