Hmmm 156 2.4mJTD. Replacement Tyres for FI GSD3


I've had Goodyear F1 GSD3's on my 156 from the first set of new tyres and find them the right balance of grip (wet and dry) and longevity for me.

Alas they are no longer available (in 205 55 R15). Has anyone got any recomendations for replacement. I'm sure Goodyear replaced them for a reason but is the reason to my benefit or theirs?

They replaced them with the F1 ASYMMETRIC - supposed to be seriously good.

What about 195/60/15 tyres, they should fit on your 15" wheels. But I would go for 17" wheels myself

Toyo Proxes are quite a good alternative to the Goodyear Eagle F1's. They seem to perform in a similar way, but are slightly quieter with regards to road noise.
