Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric
Initial Review: 25,000 miles on tires
February 01, 2012

Driving a 260whp Volvo, and these things stick, period. On dry pavement its difficult to break these lose unless I brake boost (auto tranny). wet pavement the will spin under acceleration but still a great wet tire, how do I know, I live near Seattle so at least 15,000mi were wet miles. They corner like a dream as well, and have pulled my car (3200lbs) with three guys in it (avg 200lbs ea) through the twistys faster than most front wheel drive cars have a right too! Excelent performance tire!

So here's the down side, treadwear, I put 25k on them and I drove them until I had a belt showing (I have a good bit of negative camber so the inside edge wore out way sooner than the rest of the tire) but for a treadwear rating of 240 (I think) what more can you ask for. For a 35 series tire the ride wasn't horrible (unless you ask my girlfreind) but its gonna bounce you around a bit (also I'm running rather stiff coilovers that may be more responsible for the ride)

For me Performance > durability, so these are a hands down awesome tire in my opinion. I WILL buy these again and am eager to try the Eagle F1 Assymetric 2!
