most posts I've seen have said how good they are , thats why I went and tried them , on my second set on the front , replaced with same as I've found them to be very good wet or dry.
no esp issues and plenty of grip.

I jus put on Good year Eagle assymeteric F1s on mine for £100 a tyre with fitting and balancing, as standard fit they came with continentals sports 2s, but the eagle F1s a brilliant tyre more dry traction and great in the wet too, it is alot better than the conti's but the conti isnt a bad tyre either, another good thing with the eagle F1 is that they are very low profile compared to the conti's the eagle F1 looks like a 225/40 and not a 45.
