I just got back from having my almost new Michelin A/S tires taken off my two and a half week old Si Sedan and replaced with the all new Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S tires. Initial feeling is that these tires ride considerably nicer than the Michelins. Went around a few turns and the car seems to grip better with less slip angle from the tires. Tires are ZR rated and are supposed to perform top notch in the dry, wet and snow, all things we encounter here in Minnesota.
As I begin to really push the tires, I will post up as to how they are performing, but for now, I am extremely pleased with them.
This is what Goodyear has to say about them:
Eagle featuring ResponsEdge Technology
This premium performance touring tire lets you feel the road, not the rumble. Carbon Fiber helps stiffen the outer sidewall for enhanced responsiveness and a better feel for the road. A shock-absorbing InsuLayer™ made with DuPont™ KEVLAR® helps provide a smooth, quiet ride. Comes with the Eagle Performance Package.*

Kudos and double thumbs up to Tom aka The Piper who works at Discount Tire in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Any of you guys who live in the Twin Cities should talk to him about your tire needs. He is a fellow 8th Generation member, has a hot Si Coupe himself, and is super great to work with. :thumb: :thumb:
