    Goodyear Eagle Tyres

    Just curious really. I had a set of 4 of these put on my coupe a couple of weeks ago,so they are nicely bedded in. However i find the overall grip levels dont appear to be a great as the Falkens 452's (or something like that) that i had on before them. Just wondered what other peoples thoughts were on these really. Feel free to comment

    F1 GSD3's?? I think they are excellent tyres. Currently on my 3rd pair on the Astra. Good grip wet and dry. Last well - about 15K miles on the front. The only negative thing to say about them is the excessive road noise.

    The problem they have now is the GSD3 is being phased out and the new F1 assymetric is the primary tyre. The GSD3's are still being made but the majority of them in china and i've heard the chinese made ones aint so good. Mine have always been the german made ones.

    I've also used Pirelli PZero Neros and Toyo Proxes T1R's on my Astra. The Toyo was the worse tyre by a considerable margin. Couldn't wait to get them off my car.

    Yeah they are the GSD3's,il have a look and see where they are made. I actually think they are quieter than the Falkens i had before. I just find the TC light comes on more when im throwing it around,where the Falkens gripped more. Iv heard about the T1R's,and wanted a tyre that's last more than 5 mins! Il see how they go,but iv probably done nearly 700 miles on them already,so thought they would be worn in by now. I also find the rear is more mobile than it ever was before.

    have you checked the pressures since they've been fitted? Some tyre fitters just stick any random amount of air in.

    Well iv had a look and they have MADE IN GERMANY on the sidewall. The guy that fitted them said he put 35 psi in all round. These are 215-40-17's. What pressure do you run in your's?
