Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
December 04, 2012

Replaced the OEM Pirelli PZeros with these. At first I was weary of all-season tires (some call them no-seasons), but now I am definitely sold! When new, the Pirellis had better traction at ambient temperatures over 60 degrees, but not by much. However, at cooler temperatures the Pirellis are useless compared with this tire. My Mustang is now drivable, even spiritedly, at cool or even sub-freezing temperatures. Note that I do NOT intend to drive my Mustang in snowy conditions. I have an alternative vehicle for that. However, it is nice to be able to enjoy my Mustang on dry winter days, or even on most spring/fall mornings.
Here in Iowa, for a daily driven car, these all-seasons will outperform summer tires 9 out of 12 months in a year. Another point in favor of these Good Year all-seasons is that I expect a lot longer tread life from them. The Pirellis only lasted me 10K miles.
I have driven quieter tires than these Good Years. However, compared to the noise the Pirellis were making near the end of their life, they were a much welcome relief. Traction is a lot better than I expected. Another thing I like is that the loss of traction is more gradual and more predictable. The Pirellis' were the opposite. As a result, there is less axle-hop upon launch. Steering feedback is good, and the car feels well planted. I haven't driven these long enough yet to comment about their tread wear, and I won't be driving them on snow.
I would definitely recommend these tires for a daily driven high-performance vehicle in higher latitudes where you won't get the most from summer tires' temperature-sensitive compounds throughout most of the year.
