Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season
Follow-Up Review: 500 miles on tires
I can say tirerack should have took the test after tires has been broke-in. This tire shows superb performance and ride comfort after break-in period.<br><br>Also I was wrong about noise and ride comfort. I was running 38/36 psi while recommended psi was 33/35 for Audi A4. After adjust psi and long distance driving, I realized these tire provide quiet nice ride comfort and noise. Perhaps similar or better than 17 Pirelli P6 and much better than 18 Bridgestone's summer tire.(mine is 245/45/18)<br><br>These are the best wet tire I have ever experienced also. I was able to drive on local to interstate 270 degree of rotation ramp with starting 50mph and escaping 90mph speed under moderate rain. This is the only tire that could do this in my life.<br><br>This is a performance tire which provide stiff riding. However, for performance tire, this shows best ride comfort/performance ratio.<br>If you need smooth comfort ride, you should check out those sponge tires in 'Grand Touring Tire' category.
Initial Review: 50 miles on tires
I finally replaced my OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE050A to these after tons of research. I was considering Micherin PS2 A/S, Bridestone Turanza /w serenity plus. I decided to try most recent technology from American company.
I do hard cornering and enjoy grip driving so I do understand Potenza's limit. This one has better steering response than Potenza which is max performance summer tire. However, comfort and noise level is somewhat worse than Pirelli P6 A/S and same as Potenza RE050A.
I will update this review after break-in.
