Well I've not tried these before, always used to love the old Eagle F1 GSD3 that these have replaced, so will be very critical of them.

Can't be any worse than the runflats they've replaced, but Michelin Pilot Sports were once my favourites after the GSD3, and they only tyre I stuck with for a number of years, so they've a lot to live up to

I have Toyo T1R's and took them to the ring and they handled very well! And at about 75 a pop they are good value too!

Very happy with the Eagle F1's, great grip in the wet and on greasy roads, but biggest improvement is the ride comfort compared to the runflats

we will really miss the fact that these old tyre threads, run flat threads, coilover threads, have all gone...

for midrange, try NRF Uniroyal RainSport2's. Made by Continental, great in the dry and amazing in the wet. Make RF's feel like driving in clogs. Otherwise, I'd go for Continental Sport Contact 3 or 5's.

Hi TCBW.

+1 on the missing threads

I also agree that Conti Sport 3's are a good tyre. Just on my second set now (40k from 1st set with rotation and winters). Good grip wet and dry and a good ride. Quiet too. Also they are OEM "Bmw" tyre, which means something to me.

hi Tricky - nice to see some of the old names returning.

I actually fitted some summer Nokians to my Subaru, and had a drive around yesterday; what an improvement over the floaty old OE Bridgestone Geolander G900's. I'd really have to rate those right now too.
