Another thumbs up for PS4. Went for the 95XL fitting front and back, even running in they feel nice. Think these will prove a very good replacement for the old RE050 MZ.

Default TYRES! Eagle F1's.

Folks,

I've had recommendations for these Eagle F1's from another S2000 owner, he loves them. So I've just had them fitted to mine all round. Not been out for a drive yet but looking forward to it - what are your experiences of this tyre, and do they have ANY weaknesses?

Cheers.

Congrats! Always had them, very grippy and they don't wear that badly. Can't go wrong.

Had the old GSD3s a long while ago. They were predicable and decent in cold/wet, but soft sidewalls and gummed up quickly on track.

Lots of opinions in this thread (search the thread for "Eagle"). Lots of people love them but quite a few don't because of the soft sidewalls Chris mentioned.

I hated the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2.
I the sidewalls were too soft which resulted in a bad steering feedback. I never felt confident with them at high speed cornering.
I don't have any experience with the Asymmetric 3 though.

I switched to Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and I in my opinion it is one the best tyres for a S2000 which is used as a daily driver.

If you prefer stiffer sidewalls and can sacrifice a little grip in the wet, you should try the Yokohama AD08R.
