Goodyear advice on Eagle F1 Tyres

Post  Guest on 30/5/2008, 7:39 am

I contacted Goodyear after recieving differing advice on tyres for my TF. I also noted alot of confusion on other forums on this subject, especially regarding the country of origin of tyres and the differing of performance. This was there reply:
John

I assume you refer to sizes 195/45R16 EAG F1 GSD2 80W TL RO and 215/40ZR16 EAG F1 GSD2 82W RO TL , in the description the F1 tyre for your vehicle is the GSD2 which is German made , not the GSD3 version which should not be fitted to your vehicle.[/size]

IIRC, the main advice was that GSD3 are ok, but under no circumstances should you mix GSD2 and GSD3.

Interesting information that you have had back though.

To be honest, I only really know that you must not mix them. Doesn't really affect me with my F, as I really love the Toyo Proxes T1R's that I have had. Had the T1S before that and they we also very good.

MY Tyres

Post  Guest on 30/5/2008, 7:56 am

Sadly the previous owner fitted the wrong size tyres and I have 195 45 16`s on all corners. Only one is Eagle F1 and the others Nanking. I am not at all happy with that set up for obvious reasons and will change them as soon as practicle. I have only driven 700 miles in my MG so far in all weather and to be honest have not experienced and handling difficulties with this rubbish tyre mix. I will be very careful till I get the correct rubber though.
