GT Cloverleaf Q2 Tyres

I need new front tyres and wondered what anyone else has put on?

Vredestein Ultrac Sessantas and Good Year Eagle FI Assymetrics seem to get good write-ups, anyone here got any experience with these?

Switched my p-zero rossos on 18's for Michelin Pilot Sport 3's, much better ride, much quieter and smoother

Just changed my p-zero rossos for Good Year Eagle FI Assymetrics on my GT Q2. More than happy. Used event mobile tyres. Good job and cheapest at the time (2 months ago)

Mine came with P Zero Rosso's and I will be lucky to get 12K miles out of them - looking to change to Michelin Pilot Sport 3's when these finally give up.

I've been running Sessantas for the past 6 months and 10k miles and can't fault them for the money; quiet, grippy & wear well + they look different. Previously run P-Zero Nero's which were noisier & lasted approx 12k.

Currently on the f1 asymmetrics.

Can't fault them, grip is excellent in the dry and very good in the wet.

Fronts seem to be wearing as quick as the p zero's (got about 8k from mine).

Recently changed my front tyres from Goodyear F1 assymetrics to a pair of assymetric II. Slightly different tread pattern, better rolling resistance and MUCH better than the old type. Handling as good as ever but much quieter and certainly seem much better suited to the suspension set up, soak up lots of the bumps on the road that the old pair would transmit through the suspension. Not too bad, paid <250 for the pair fitted.

Im very impressed with the front set on my Q2, have Hankook Ventus V12 Evos on the 18" rims. So would be the same size as the Cloverleaf wheels.
Very good wear across the width of the tyre, grip like mad in wet and dry, makes the Q2 almost redundant!

The only issue I have with them is that they don't have as much rim protection as the Dunlop SportMaxx I have on the rear.

Hope this helps.
