Tyre Question
« on: April 01, 2019, 04:49:20 PM »
Hi Gents.

I've noticed the front tyres need replacing.

Not happy i bought them in august 2014.

What i have.
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 225/45 R17 94Y XL

What the local tyre place can get.

GOODYEAR EAGLE F1 ASYMMETRIC 5 225/45 R17 94 Y XL

GOODYEAR EAGLE F1 ASYMMETRIC 3 225/45 R17 94 Y XL

Both at €81.50

Are the 5's better than the 3's.

As always thanks guys.

Can't wait to buy an old banger for the wife so i can drive the golf to work every day.  :driver:

Black circles are doing Michelin ps4 for £100 each. They are very good.

I had those Goodyears on my Impreza and didn't like them at all. I can't remember which version of the Goodyears.

They have the MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4 225/45 R17 94 Y XL for €88.95.
And 15 fitting.

But then the fronts will not match the backs.

Tyres for 4 1/2 years and you're not happy  :signLOL:

The Asy2 are totally different to the the 3 and 5 anyway, so I wouldn't worry about them not matching. Go for the Asy5 or the PS4

What would these mean in terms of handling and braking?

Unless you track the car and push the limits of grip, it means nothing. 99/100 people would never notice the difference.

Some people (myself included) are just funny about having unmatched tyres

Formula one Autocentres have upped the price to £364 with the MCH13 discount.

But you get an additional £50 off by uploading your receipt to the Michelin offers page.  £20 off for purchasing 2.

Assymetric 3 vs Assymetric 5 vs Conti premium contact 6



After watching that, I would still take the PS4.

Why not wait until Goodyear release their Super Sport range later this year, which will be a step above the Assymetric 5.

Assymetric 5, Conti Premium 6, PS4 are all comfort biased sport tyres.

PS4 S, Sport Contact 6 and the forthcoming Goodyear Sport are all Fast road/track biased tyres.

Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

Went for the PS4's they told me the rears would fail the mot as they are too old and that i need an alignment done. Said just change the fronts thanks. Hate it when they try and sell you stuff you don't need.

Good choice! I didn't see this topic in time to share my opinion, though. :innocent:
