And I also need to know if that will fit a 9.5 width rim. I know it won't look as good as like 275's but i just need some tires

I've never run them, but just looking at generic things like price, treadwear, speed rating, they seem like ok tires. They will fit on a 9.5" rim, but you will have a little "stretch." It wont be hella flush or anything stupid, but a 275 fits damn near flush on a 9.5" rim.

I have them on my 2014 v6 and for daily driving they are ok. With decent suspension, they are "ok" for the drag strip also. Not the best, but you can get by.

+1 on this. They came from the factory for my 2013 V6 PP car. Main thing I noticed was poor traction in any kind of adverse weather and treadwear was not so great. Got about 25k-30k miles out of them, then upgraded.

Tires

I've been running them on the rears for a few thousand miles now. IMO the traction is great in wet and dry. They hook nicely. It's a soft tires so they wear quickly and it does kick up a bunch of little rocks and what not.

A 255 on a 9.5" rim is kind of pushing it but it will fit. 255s are ideal for 8.5".

They will fit. They will have some stretch at that size but they will work. There not the best tires though. There's definately better on the market for grip and durability

A lot of people buy these ULTRA HIGH Performance tires and its a waste on street cars like what 90% of us drive. Not sure what Rapinator thinks are better options but I got Pirelli P7 Centurato All Season tires all around. Personally I love them and last I checked (3weeks ago) they were on sale for $130 ea. on tire rack. 245/40 18

I had them on my car for a year and they wear out fast. I have a staggered set up so I couldn't rotate so that could have made the tears wear a lot faster. They hooked pretty good though

I still have my fronts 265/40/19

Since we're on the tire subject, I have just noticed I have a broken belt on my front left tire. Is it still safe to drive on?

I've got the BFG G-Force Sport Comp 2 on my '95 T/A. Great dry weather grip. Supposed to be great grip in rain also, just haven't had them out in the rain yet.

I have Conti ExtremeContact DW tires on my car now. Decent, but less steering feedback than what the OP was considering.

No you need to get a new tire assp. It throws the tire out of balance causing issues with wheel bearings etc. also with a broken belt it is likely that the tire will go boom soon. Not always the case but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I would hate to hear your drove on it and had a blow out and toasted a rim or body panel

^ yes he is right. That's not smart or safe.

I had a blowout on my front driver side tire on my f250 doing about 80 on the highway.

It was better than a redbull lol.

That's what I have on my Mustang. I have OCD with tires and research the hell out of them before I buy any, but these came with my ride so the only research I have is my own experience. Here's what I know about mine so far...

Dry traction - Superior
Wet traction - Good
Road noise - Crap
Tread life - N/A

Bottom line is I love the grip, but not enough to live with the road noise. I plan on selling my premium wheels with the Goodyears on them and replacing with some AMR wheels and Continental Extreme Contact all seasons.

If there is a reason you are getting a good deal my guess would be it's because the seller can't take the noise anymore. lol But for a good price (under $300 for the set) and solid tread I would get them if I were you.

These are what I am wanting... how is the grip in wet weather? According to trierack these tires handle well in snow and ice too. And what is your opinion of road noise?

They are very good in wet weather and light snow (like a dusting to 1/4 inch). I wouldn't trust them on ice as they'll be hard as hockey pucks. I switch over to winter wheels when the snow really comes (Michelin X-Ice 3) and have managed to squeeze three winters out of them including the crazy one we just had.

Yes I usually have a winter set but was hoping I could use that $$$ for more mods. Tirerack rated your tires over a 7.0 on ice and I have read reviews of high HP RWD owners that claimed they handled well in hard winters because if the sipes And tread pattern?

If I go with winter tires I'll probably keep the Eagles since they are good summer traction. Ill just keep my shaker turned up. Lol

^ Well, Conti makes an ExtremeContact DW and a DWS...could that be the difference? I seem to recall mine (DW) having a blank for snow handling rating as they're an UHP summer tire only.

Bingo, my mistake. It's tge DWS Im looking at trying. If they handle decent in winter I'll be buying them for the life of my Stang.

Thanks for the replies, it really helped!

How does that phrase about opinions go? It couldn't be more true about tires. The F1 Supercars are no exception and if they are a good deal is extremely subjective. Anywhere close to list price, there are way better options. Even at low $200s you could probably find ones a bit better but they are still a very capable tire, albeit somewhat noisy, and tread wear is no worse than most summer high performance tires.

Honestly those tires wore away insanely quickly, however they glued to the road. But for everyday driving I did some research for about a month and ended up buying the Goodyear eagle sport all seasons and wow!!!! I have never been more pleased and satisfied with a tire!! All around these tires hold soooo unbelievable well and the tread doesn't seem to ever wear even after 10k miles!!! I will continue buying only these tires from now on for all my sports cars!! Thank you Goodyear for making a ultra high performance tire for the price of a normal tire hahahaha...btw best price for tires has got to be American tire depot. Plus they offer lifetime tire alignment for your vehicle even if you buy different tires from someone else!!

I researched the daylights out of tires and my decision was to buy the Cooper Zeon RS3-A's and I love them. Original Pirelli's lasted 24,000 miles. I now have a total of 42,000 miles and the Zeon's are hardly showing any wear. They will easily waaay outlast the Pirellis. I think they are quieter and grip better too. Absolutely better wet than the Pirelli's.

See 28k isn't much as with the stock Michelin energy savers I got about 42k and the F1 was about 25k till I just found these and got a banging deal I couldn't pass up!! I'm expecting about 40-50k with these Goodyear eagle sport all seasons

You're not really comparing those all-season tires to a summer performance tire, are you?

Not a fair comparison and the entire discussion began with a performance tires, not something intended to have more balance and durability considerations.

The thread began on what our opinion was on the tire...personal opinion. I think any comparison is fair in America at least lol. I'm just messing around and I'm just really happy with my goodyears that I purchased!!!
