    • High performance summer tire test - Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport vs. Michelin Pilot Sport 4S vs. Continental SportContact 6 vs. Toyo Proxes Sport + others

      This is a test many of us were waiting for as it includes popular summer performance street tires most enthusiasts run on their own cars but it includes the big new entry into the category. That would be the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport.


      Keep in mind this is not the R-Compound Eagle F1 Supersport R or RS. This is the standard tire designed for street driving as tested by Tyre Reviews on their F87 M2 test car. Tire sizes are 245/35/19 front and 265/35/19 rear.

      The test categories are dry and wet handling, braking, aquaplane resistance, noise, comfort, wear, and subjective ratings.

      Tires tested:

      Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport
      Michelin Pilot Sport 4S
      Continental SportContact 6
      Vredestein Ultrac Vorti
      Falken Azenis FK510
      Kumho Ecsta PS91
      Toyo Proxes Sport
      Accelera PHI

      Dry:


      Wet:


      It is interesting to note the Goodyears are not the best dry handling tire but right up there with the best. Their wet handling tops everyone else significantly though. The new Goodyear tire offers the best combination of wet and dry handling performance. For those who want a high performance tire but are in an area where it rains often, this tire may be a savior for you.

      This does not come without its downsides. The Goodyears are loud and not as comfortable as competitors:


      Something else that is very important to note. The Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport is the lightest tire of the group:


      Despite the downsides the Goodyear Eagle F1 wins this shootout. This bodes very well for the higher performance R and RS variants. Porsche afterall recently switched the 991.2 GT2 RS tire recommendation to the F1 RS.

        I was looking at the Goodyears as the next tires for the M3....Guess my minds made up.

        A missing chart is the wear ratings of each tire as that is a very useful metric. Certain classes only allow a certain tread wear rating like above 200 for instance.

        Michelin Pilot Sport is always the best choice IMO, also most of the time they have the least wear..
