Alfa gt tyres?

Hi, I recently bought my Alfa GT, but it needs 4 new tyres.
Unfortunately as the 18" wheels looked great on the car I bought one with 18" wheels with 225/40/18 tyres.

It currently has Pirelli Pzero Nero tyres on, but I am thinking about going for Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 tyres.

On 18" wheels 4 tyres are going to be about 500 so I want to make sure i make the right choice so which are best Pirelli Pzero Nero's or Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3's?

If you search on Buy cheap tyres online from you can find the Eagles for 115.94 a corner fitted. I reckon with a bit a haggling you could probably get a set of 4 for about 420 - 440 fitted. Alternatively if you stick with the Pzero Neros you should be able to get a set for 400.

GSD3 are a fantastic all round tyre - even with the abuse and loading they get on a diesel GT - the directional tread also suits the styling of the GT. I've found these tyres very hard to get hold of, so after 2 sets I've changed to Goodyear Excellence which are reasonably priced - they are performing as well as the Eagle F1s after 10k miles. Not as dramatic looking as the Eagle F1s but worth considering if the price is ok - got mine for 80 each.

I have GSD3's, they have amazing grip levels on dry and wet roads (although on snow you'd get more traction from a non-stick frying pan). The main disadvantages I've found is that the car seems to tram-line badly on the lorry abused B roads I drive and they are quite noisy, although I usually have the stereo on quite loud so don't notice the noise too much.

Mine have done 3000 miles and don't seem to be wearing too harshly but some reviews say they don't last long, I guess it depends how you drive most of the time and if you leave the ASR on, I will have a better idea in a few thousand more miles though.

Despite the drawbacks I do always have bags of confidence in them even in poor conditions and that is what I was looking for most in a tyre.

I've gpt pzero rossos.
they tramline dreadfully as they wear.
13000 miles and the fronts are shot to bits. apparently my tracking was out and they scrubbed. (all be it nearly in the middle)
but they have excellent grip. even now.
I'd like to know what to use for my next set.

I've just found 4 new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrics (215/45/17 91Y) at Cheap Tyres Discount Tyres & Japanese Import Car Parts Spares Tuning Performance Servicing Accessories ::, supplied mail order for 357.96. If I allow 10 per corner to get fitted locally this equates to 397.96 all in. Does anybody know of a better deal for Eagle F1's?
