Hey all, I just got these installed last week after just over 1 year on the Eagle F1's that came on the car when I bought it used last August. The F1's had good tread on them, and still do actually, but were badly cupped. I was cautiously optimistic about the new tires being quite a bit nicer and quieter. Let me say that I am not disappointed with these new Continentals! Its like im driving a new car! Those F1's were really bad. We'll see how the Continentals hold up over time, but these tires feel great and are quiet. I will say that the steering wheel feels lighter just off center and I actually think i like the feel of heavier wheel the F1's gave (maybe just because they were worn, not sure) but once you are cornering the Continentals feel super. Longitudinal traction is better too! Just wanted to let people know that I think these are good alternative to the F1 or Michelin Supersports if you're looking.
