    Angry Goodyear GSD3 Eagle F1's

    ARE CRAP!

    why are these tires so expensive??? they don't grip for shit. What is a better tire that will stay stuck to the ground w/out having to unload 20psi?

    Are you sure it isn't suspension?

    I am not a fan of those tires, but I hear they are one of the best grabbing street tires.

    What size did you get them in??

    I had 285/40/17's out back, and when they were new, they gripped very well. With a lid/catback/tune they wouldn't break loose at all unless I launched hard.

    However, once they started to age and wear out, they got much worse. It got to the point where first gear was useless, and I would be spinning through 4th if the temperature was below about 60 degrees. That was when I switch to Nitto 555's in the same size, which I have been happy with.

    275/40/17. brand new last year, they probably have 10k miles on them and really good tread left. Honestly, they are great in the rain, but dry, they just suck. AutoX'ing was not fun with them until i took them down to 25 psi. Even on the street, at 40 psi [hot] they like to break loose while turning.

    I run my BFG KDW's at 28-29 PSI for street.

    40 PSI is too high and will induce traction problems.

    I run 35 front 30 rear and had no issues until this year. They are almost to the wear bars now. I couldn't launch over more then idle, but that's alright for street use. No problems in the corners with them yet. They do suck once the temps are below 60, but that almost any summer tire.

    well, having personally been thru all the major and popular tires, there is 1 that far exceeds the rest,

    toyo t1r's

    having said that what other street tire can take a stock m6 camaro to a 1.809 60 foot and then last nearly 35k miles? my toyos and still have some way to go on the back, the fronts are nearly 3/4 and my car rails significantly better around turns.

    i run 275-35-18 up front and 295-35-18 out back

    not seeing T1R's on that page.

    I see Proxes 4, Proxes R888, and Proxes RA-1 (which sounds comprable to your description)
