    Default Goodyear Eagle Excellence Tyres

    Anyone had any experience with these?

    Should be fitting later today - thought I'd break with the NCT5's.

    I would expect them to offer a slight improvement, depending on what tyre size are using

    I went from NCT5 on 215/50R17 to F1 GSD3 on 225/45R17
    That offered a vast improvement
    Sadly the GSD3 was discontinued and replaced with the Assymetric, but I am not impressed with it
    The Excellence is the next generation so is hopefully an improvement on the Assymetric

    It's quite funny reading about the tyre issues on cars as the Saab 9-5 was supposedly at it's best on Assymetric's and everyone raves about them on Saab's I have never tried them personally but am finding different tyres have a real bearing on the way a car drives and behaves where it had never been a big issue before.

    I found Avon ZZ3's great on my Mondeo and folks were very critical on the Saab, weird or what!

    Probably why some manufactures approve some tyres, Merc, porsche and BMW all do this.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Iv'e got them on the front of my vectra, they seem ok in the dry, squeal like a pig tho!!

    In the wet they are terrible no grip what so ever.

    They have been on my car since I got it so I can't comment on the difference. I have NCT5's on the rear.

    I would say they are designed for mileage not grip!!!

    My personal preference is Michelin
    My previous Mondeo Mk3 Ghia came with Continentals
    They lasted just 4000 miles
    I therefore replaced all four with Michelins (I stuck the two part used tyres on eBay UK)
    It was like night and day
    Even the guy that serviced the car said he had never seen that type of Michelin tyre on a Mondeo and remarked at how much it improved the handling, and said he would recommend them in future (as they were the same price)

    So did I, but I wasn't impressed with the short life of the GSD3 (10,000 miles or thereabouts and they were shot) and also got fed up with the constant tramlining and twitchy steering.

    Far happier with the Rainsport2's I've since fitted.

    I am getting ZZ3 on my new rims tomorrow so fingers crossed. I suspect a lot depends on the model of the car and not just the make, so my ZZ3 are going on a heavy 3.0 V6.

    Ive just got a set of 225/40/18s all round and so far I'm impressed. Quite grippy, seem much quieter than the old Nankang ditchfinders I had (they werent too bad really, but really hard and quite poor in the wet).

    Only done 100 miles so will have to wait and see how they bed in before giving it some beans.
