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 Full Review

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… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 which… Read Full Review

just to start off, my background has been with driving vehicle's hard and i'm trained to a high standard(same as police). These tyres were probably the best tyres i have ever used on my car, T5 s60 volvo. when pushed to the limit these tyres never once made me feel i was in trouble or were going to let go in rain or sun. my suggestion to people would be if driven properly and car was ok,ie tracking balancing etc, then these tyres would easily beat any tyre on the market. and the price easily… Read Full Review

The Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 is one of the best tyres available on the market and at the price I bought they are awesome. The new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric is supposted be even better! I have had German, U.S and Chinese Goodyears and I cant tell the difference… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

We bought a set of 4 Goodyear Eagle f1 tires for 250.00 each in November. It has not been even a year yet and all 4 tires have had the rubber literally peel off. I would not recommend these tires to anyone. In fact I would strongly suggest that someone not buy these tires unless they enjoy purchasing new tires after less then 5,000 miles and less than a year… Read Full Review

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. Slightly noisier than my previous fitments but minor gripe as everything seems to be so much better, especially grip and wear… Read Full Review
