Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season
Initial Review: 200 miles on tires
December 29, 2012

I have only had these tires for about a week. So this review is really just an initial opinion, and a quick comparison to my OEM tires.

My OEM Dunlop RFT tires were pretty worn. They had 45k miles. Since buying the Mini Cooper S brand new in '09, I had not liked the tires. Rough ride. Noisy. Unforgiving and fairly slick in wet or snowy conditions. I knew within 5 miles that switching to this non-RFT Goodyear F1 was a smart move. The ride is far smoother and quieter. The traction has been excellent in both rain and a bit of snow/slush. I really can't say enough about the change in ride comfort. I used to feel every crack in the road like it was a crater. The RFTs were so stiff. The F1s just glide over the road imperfections by comparison. I will gladly rely on Fix-a-Flat and my Roadside Assistance for for the great improvement in comfort and handling.
