Tyres

I just replaced my tyres on my AU XR8 with Goodyear Eagles F1 235/45/17.
I thought I would let you all know of my opinion as I had no end of proplems finding the right tyre for my car.
The Goodyear eagle F1 is.

Wet: Excellent,(the best I have experienced)
Dry: Very good
Looks: Awesome tread, looks fantastic

Overall the tyre is a very good performer. Not sure on wear as yet. I do recomend this tyre.

Cheers

a friend had these on his AUIII XR6. He found the wear to not be very good and they were noiser than standard SP9000's. Each his own. Tyres are a personal thing. I'll stick with the SP's as thats what we design the suspension setup to work best with!

And what if you throw the standard suspension out and go for something like revalved Koni's (specifically to suit XR's) and proper sports springs. What tyres are right then?
