60000km + = 40000 miles. Rough chip sealed roads. Grip outstanding on my 3L V6 Nissan FWD. Just changed to Dunlop Direzza as the non asymmetric F1s not available - the Dunlops are not as good even after 2000km. In the wet I now have to brake! Will be buying the asymmetric F1s in future. thehawkreturns NZ (read more)

Now just over 47,000 miles and have just sailed through MOT.
I have not had a set of tyres last as long in 50 years driving.
The grip is still good and the performance in the recent icy weather was outstanding. In heavy rain and flooded roads the tyres do not falter.

yes these tyres are noisy on the motorway and give a firm ride, but these tyres are great in the dry, wet or snow (if you know how to drive). they will wear quick if you powerslide, wheelspin or donut your car, but tyres like these do wear more because the rubber compound is soft to give better grip, mine lasted over 20,000 miles and i drive a turbo.

From NCT5 I switched to F1 and this tyre rightly should be recalled. It's the most noisiest tyre that I have ever encountered. Tried all kind of air pressure, swapping and balancing, the noise just doesn't go and at 110KM you can't hear each others' coversation without raising your voice. No qualm in term of road handling.

I fitted these tyres on the front of my Audi Cabriolet, replacing Sumitomos (215 44 17). They have changed the feel of the car completely. The steering is now much sharper (important as the Audi Cabrio generally steers like a pig) and the car feels a lot less nose heavy. They do have a tendency to tramline but the grip is amazing in both wet and dry. They are slighly more noisy than other tyres I have used (but who cares in a cabrio?). They offer excellent performance and are significantly... (read more)

Lack of grip in both the wet and the dry. When I initially pu them on the back the car would move left and right on the motorway at high speed. Putting them on the front leads to very poor cornering capabitilties.
Would definitely not recommend as a perfromace tyre. (read more)

No confidence from start, first fitted to rear and the rear end squirmed all over the road, swapped to front after 5000 miles and the front started to squirm. They appear to follow every rut in the road and the car feels like it's snaking under braking. I thought they would get better with more miles but they didn't. These are the worst tyres I have ever driven on. I replaced them with Goodyear NCT5's. (read more)

Great tyres, great handling in both dry and wet, quiet is a plus compared to other top brands/models. sharp and precise response to hard cornerings, and give full assurance to driver. Only not so stable went crusing at 140 Km/h and above, could be due to my wheels balancing. (read more)

I am extremely pleased with the F1 tyres. The grip is reassuring and allows you to push on with confidence. Wet, Dry or Snow, you continue to feel the tyre feedback. The only downside for me is the cost of that type of tyre. 235/40 Y18. £600.00 to replace four. The up side is that we have had a lot of snow(6-8inches), completed a 120 round trip in the snow and the car/ tyres delivered big time. (read more)

These tyres are by far the best I've ever had. Grip in the dry is fab, but even more astonishing is the grip in wet conditions. Point the steering wheel where you want to go, and the car responds straight away, no questions asked. Slight understeer under hard cornering, but that's to be expected from a front wheel drive car.
The only problem with them is in winter conditions. There is hardly any control which can be rather scary. Even on tickover trying to move my car, it struggles on the... (read more)

Goodyear Eagles F1 Used these tyres on both a 146 2.0ti and 156 2.0 veloce Best tyres I have had on a car. Never had a dodgy moment even driving in fairly bad weather conditions. As both cars were company cars at one point was forced to have other tyres on the cars as fleet policy but after some not so good moments in dodgy weather refused to do the ridiculous mileage the job required until the goodyears were put back on. Both cars handled really well with these tyres (especially the 146... (read more)

Second set I have put on this Car now, after replacing the 4 poor Bridgestone Potenza's originally fitted to the vehicle. Excellent tyre indeed are these Goodyear F1, done well over 14000 miles on the front set, which I replaced today. Not bad for a front wheel drive 2:0ltr Engine with 150 bhp, and masses of torque flowing onto them.....
Highly reccommended on my opinion.....
Good Price too, from a local supplier at £165:00 for the 2 front ones.... (read more)

Goodyear Eagle f1 tyres, great grip and composure on all roads, both wet and dry. Very reassuring progressive feel up to limits and very compliant ride compared with the Continentals I just ditched.

Had four 225 45 17's fitted to my golf gt, these were made in Germany and were good tyres. Have just replaced with falken 452s after 6000 miles due to unbearable road noise. Initially I suspected the wheel bearings but garage checked these and confirmed ok - they advised to check tyres.20 % of inside was worn in a very strange way. 1 - 2" would be worn away with no tread showing, the next 1 - 2" would be ok and so on around entire inside of tyre.

Before you skip off to the next review read this, i had the older Eagle tyres fitted to the front end of my PD130 Ibiza. They gripped well, wore well and were very quiet despite being 215/45/16's.
My car isnt standard now and runs at 190bhp/320ftfb, for a FW drive car any tyre will struggle but the Eagles just keep going for it. I replaced all my tyres for the newer DS-3's and the only bad point is an increase in noise and lower MPG. My answer is to drive slower if i need to save fuel and... (read more)

The Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres have transformed my car (BMW 330 ci) my traction control light doesnt come on as much and pulling away from junctions is a lot less likley to induce a spin. The grip is very progresive on the edge allowing you to drive faster with more confidence. They dont try and pull me into the hedge when I hoof it down my favourite country lane unlike the standard continetals that came with the car. My car is sporting 235x35x19" and the ride is still smooth. Road noise is not... (read more)

I like the Goodyear geale F1 tyres, used them for 2 years on a VW Golf 4. Many dealers recommend them and I see the online reviews are good toom these confirms my thoughts that these are very good tires. The car sticks well to the ground with them.
On wet road the car doesn't slip at all with these tires.
I think the tires are not good for drifting because they have good grip. (read more)

I can't fault these tyres. I've had them on a Z3 2.0L (rear wheel drive) and they have lasted 19,000 miles so far (30500 km c/a). I switched the tyres on the rears to the fronts due to uneven wear (more on fronts due to rear wheel drive) after 15000 miles which helped extend the life of the full set. Aquaplaning isn't a major issue with these tyres (except when they are apporaching the end of their life), grip around the corners is brilliant, and in both wet and dry conditions. Scrub in...

Maybe the tyre wall on the Goodyear Eagle tyre is over-compliant. When fun driving - body roll seems worse, as does grip (in 5 to 10 deg C) and I reckon I have less acceleration now as well! Feels as though the car has been degraded. I don't think they don't suit the WRX and am overall disapointed, and would not have bought them if I'd known the effects they would have. Upping the pressure to 42PSI helps a little, but they may have to go. (read more)

Excellent grip, cornering and road holding and gives a predictable breakaway point. The best value top end tyre i've found so far even though the wear rate is high, about 12K miles and you'll need a new set (but that's what you get if you want the best grip)! If you don't drive the car hard (and want the grip) then maybe these aren't the best option for you. (read more)

This review is for a Thai production Goodyear Eagle F1 used in the tropics (and tropical rainstorms).. I purchased this tyre after using Falken's ST512. This tyre has excellent wet grip around corners and has sure footed stopping in the rain. I drive a sub compact (Nissan March /Micra K11) with 195/50/15 Eagle F1's. This tyre was chosen for its aggressive water channeling design and it has definitely lived up to its physical features. Dry weather handling is good too, perhaps just as good as... (read more)

Goodyear Eagle f1 look, feel and be the best..... push them further and further.... you will give up before they do. Even in the wet they perform very sure footed and confident. BUT - The colder the weather the worse they get. Anything resembling SNOW should be definately avoided. Imagine the trust you would give driving on your rims. In the dry - Simply the best. In snow/ice try using a couple of haddock. (read more)
