Given 60% while driving a Toyota Yaris (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 1,750 miles
Great tyre in the dry with good feedback. Good in a lot of wet conditions too, but some wet surfaces cause it to be very sketchy compared to PS4S's which seems to be more consistent on varying wet road surfaces. Wear was really bad. Less than 2000 miles and the fronts were dead compared to 8000 on PS4's on road use.

When it came to replacing the tyres on my CSL wheels, everyone recommended I change to PS4S (recently bought the car and had some very old, dried out Achilles tyres on them). And I was tempted to. But I remember watching one of Jonathan’s videos and remember him saying how good the F1SS was. I tried to watch every video I could find on the F1SS and eventually I ordered a set. These tyres have blown my mind. I mainly do weekend runs on mountain passes/touge style roads and the occasional trackday. Because of our hot African climate, I wasn’t too worried about the cold/wet performance as it doesn’t really get below 8’C here in winter, and even then I don’t do much driving in anything but my daily driver. The F1SS are very quick to warm up and when they do, they really stick. Initial turn-in feels great, and steering feedback through corners is amazing. The rears seem to never run out of grip and even after pushing them on a fast, technical mountain pass, they just keep up. Road noise seems fairly non-existent. They have a normal amount of noise on the freeway, but overall I find it a quiet tyre. I also don’t find them too stiff, they seem pretty comfortable considering the car is lowered. I have done one session of “spirited” driving in the wet, but didn’t push very hard. I didn’t feel like I was running out of grip at any stage though, I remember being impressed and thinking they shouldn’t feel this good in the wet. So far, very good! I’ve done about 6 or 7 demanding drives since fitting them and really love the way they feel and grip, especially compared to the MPS4S I’ve felt on other cars. If they last well with my driving style, I won’t hesitate to put these on other cars as well. It also makes me very excited for the next generation of these tyres.

The tire was a joy in the dry , up there with PS4 but as the tread reduced damp driving became a real pain. Wet driving was ok and predictable but damp , slight damp roads made this tire spin. It would spin at real low speeds. I would reverse out of my drive and push forward and spin , spin. This problem started at under 4mm and at under 3mm it was so annoying. I changed the fronts today to Hankook Evo 3's due to there 1st placing in a recent test. When new and in the dry a marvelous tire it just didnt like damp much like some of the Potenza's i have owned. So in essence , change this tire at 3mm. One last biggie on this , i was down to 3mm at 9k miles!

Pros: I use them both on roads and trackdays, and they are amazing tyres compared to the factory set Continental SC 6's! Great, sharp steering feel, needs a little bit of heat in them before use but not much, cornering speeds are awesome. Cons: lower comfort level, on trackdays they stick very well but easier to overheat and lose grip quicker then the Contis before, I had to play more with tyre pressures. I already ordered a set of Supersport R tyres for track use only, can't wait to compare them to each other!

BMW 230i (245/35 R18) on a combination of roads for 600 spirited miles
This tyre is such a wonderful surprise. There are not much sporty road tyres for 18" so before this one i had PS4. It's a good tyre but there is nothing sporty about it, the F1 SS is night and day over the PS4 in Dry grip, feedback and handling (No rain yet where I live so can't comment on wet grip, but I live in a hot country so wet is not much issue). If you are on 18" and want a sporty tyre for road use? this is the one to chose. It is indeed a fun tyre like Jonathan said in his review. Love this tyre.

BMW (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
thought i would give these a try as a suitable but cost efficient alternative to the 'obligatory' MPS4. on road very similar offering no advantage nor disadvantage, however its on the track where they stand out. A whole day at Anglesey melted my previous set of 4s but these stayed the course without any trouble. I don't track very often but have experienced michelin super sports, 4s and these so if you are seeking something that can offer every day performance but be able to withstand the odd track day then these are worth a very serious consideration.

Audi A6 Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (245/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
Grip on these tyres is excellent, both in wet and dry. Subjectively the handling feel of my car has improved significantly with these tyres as well. The Audi A6 Avant Quattro (2016, 272 hp) is not the best handling car in the world but the upgrade from comfort oriented tyres (Fulda Sport Control 2 which were actually terrible) to the more sporty tyres (this Eagle F1 Supersport) has done this car a lot of good in every sense! Even for comfort they are quite good and apart from the really hard short bumps ( not that bad either) I would say comfort has actually improved in other scenarios. The tyre just feels meaty but not harsh. This tyre is exactly what this car needed to improve the driving enjoyment! I strongly recommend this tyre for heavier, powerful non-SUV cars.

I have been using the tyres for about 5k km and can say it's really good. I was using PS4 before this and can say the grip on wet and dry are similar. Can't say much about the wear as I can't drive now during pkp :p. Overall I highly recommend the tyres as it is budget friendly and really good.

So, I came to these from a PS4, which were hugely impressive. Initially, the goodyear disappointed me in the rain, but I think that speaks more about the PS4 that I came from. Then I tried the F1SS. For the road, it's almost scary how much cornering grip these tyres offer in the dry. I've had to recalibrate my cornering speed accordingly. They have held up well on track too. I dropped about 8/10PSI F/R and they stayed together well, but dropped off significantly on a wet track. Overall, I prefer these to the PS4 because the track aspect just nudges it ahead for me. If it was road only, I'd go for a PS4, or a PS4S if I could get it in my size.

Given 99% while driving a Honda FK2 type r (235/35 R19) on mostly country roads for 10,000 miles
What a great tyre!!! Price point at time of purchase (March 2019) was less than both Michelin PS4S's and Continental SC6 that the car was running on fitted from factory. I think the most relatable way to describe the Supersport tyre on the FK2 put simply, it really complements the chassis, the factory Continental's are very good in dry conditions, there is not any appreciable gain with the Supersport here but in wet conditions the Supersport is far superior, the SC6 gave a vage feeling/sensation of little to no grip at low speed which was strange because the grip was there if you pushed past this and lent on the tyre harder but it wasn't reassuring, the Supersport has addressed this with a really good feeling in wet conditions at all speeds and maintained all the dry grip levels and beautiful precision handling that Honda engineers intended at all speeds in the dry at an advantageous price point over brands and with just over 10k miles coved at point of writing this the wear rate is excellent too, I estimate I still have another 5k felt in the front tyres (car is factory standard) compared to scraping to the 10k mark with the SC6 after rotating twice. I will definitely buy the Supersport again! Enjoy your drive! Wrighty

Given 93% while driving a Alfa Romeo Giulia QF (285/30 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 2 spirited miles
Found the YouTube UHP comparison test with the M2 very helpful and informative. Based on this and Giulia Quadrifoglio owners feedback I went for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersports. 245/35/19 fronts and 285/30/19 rears. Running 2.4bar front and 2.2bar rear. My review with this tyre is based on the knowledge that I've driven the same B road's for 30 year's with various performance cars and various makes of tyres. Initial impressions are very positive. Crabbing is no longer present. Sidewalls do seem stiffer than the Corsas, but not annoyingly so. Steering does initially feel a little heavier but this doesn't effect turn in or handling, personally I quite like the little more weight. Wet weather grip is phenomenal, even in Race and using manual the car feels very predictable. Still to find the limit but with 500+ bhp and public roads I'll leave the hedges for someone else to explore. Latteral twitch from the rears going over drain covers in the wet is also much less severe. Dry weather handling is excellent. Turn in, apex and exit grip you really feel the tyre bite. Still get a little slip from the rear 3rd to 4th when on limit in Race, again very predictable. Really impressed with the SS. Car feels much more predictable and has given me much more confidence wet and dry
