<strong>I've had the Goodyear Eagle F1's (gsd2) 215/45r17 before and I was quite happy with them. Nice handling, certainly when warmed up well they performed great on the Nurburgring.
They did a good job in the wet also (at least no aquaplaning).
Downsides were: a little noisy and less comfort (hard ride).
Now I have some cheaper brand: Fulda Carat Extremo. They do a really good job, perhaps even better then the F1's. They have the same carcass(?) as the Goodyear, only the compound and groove patern is different.
They excel over the F1's in ride comfort and noiselevel and price not to forget.
