Tires: Goodyear Eagle Supercar F1 G:2


Recommended Posts

I was just reading where the new GT500's and Camaros both have these Eagle F1 G:2 tires.. I currently have the BFG tires on my car and looking to replace them in the Spring. Curious what the feedback is relative to the Eagles vs the BFG tires..

 

Thanks so much!

jawa,

 

I had the Goodyear F1 - G:2's on my 2011 GT500. They are like hockey pucks below 50 degrees, acceptable with caution up to 75 degrees and really stick above that. Here in Kali, that's not much of a problem. Up your way, it could be...

 

Good luck in your search!

Let me sum up what my fellow NorCal'ers before me said.....bag the F1's. I cannot comment on the BFG's as I have no experience with them.

 

Go with Hankook Ventus Evo V12, my son has them on his Bullitt, I have them on my KR, two other friends run them, one on a 2011 GT350, the other a SGT/SC.

 

Great on the track, and in the rain, and half the cost of the Goodyears. I got mine for around $190 each at tirerack, whereas the Goodyears are upwards of $400. The F1's can F-that...

I have read where the GY tires are like rocks below 50, sounds like some good advice. Although I store the car in the garge during the winter, it is pretty common around here to be below 50 pretty much at any time of year.

 

 

I'll scope out the Hankooks.

I am replacing my stock tires on the 2008 SGT this spring and have a good GY dealer close by with the F1's.

I have read some reviews on the Mickey Thompson Street Comp and the Magazines guys seem to like them.

Anybody tried them yet?

Well, today my dealer replaced all 4 GYs with Michelin PSS and only charged me for the install around $110.

 

Mine were cracked on delivery and I had to go through the GY local rep for warranty. Once they agreed, the tires were destroyed.

 

I did not want new GYs, but wanted the MPSS. I went to pick up the car, 275s on the front but only 285s on the rears, they didnt go 295s.

 

Mix up in what I said vs what they heard. Anyway, they look great and sizes are only 2/10" difference from front to back instead of stock 5/10" Not noticeable, and grip is definitely better.

 

Even though I wanted 295s on the rear, I cant complain about a (nearly) free replacement.

I got the Mickey Thompson's on another Mustang and super grippy. Hasn't been driven enough so can't comment on treadwear but these new MT's remind me of the original BF Goodrich Comp T/A's which were great tires. My 2013 GT350 came with the F1's and can't stand Goodyear's! Sorry to say that about our famous American company but Goodyear's suck and have for a long time

Personally when I finally replace my original BFG's (at the 10 year age mark in 2017?) ill probably go with Continentals, assuming the reviews are good. I like that they have supported the Continental Tire Series in Grand Am. I had Continentals on my '06 Expedition and liked them. I also have them on my motorhome.
