while driving a
Ford Focus ST250
(235/40 R18 W) on
a combination of roads
Dry-grip is okay-ish. On my Focus ST, it's pretty understeery and I can't say for sure, but it sort of feels like it is even easier to overdrive this tire than my previous, 4 year old Eagle F1 Asymetric 2's.
Launch grip... well... wheel spin in 1st and 2nd gear. Even when I'm flooring it in 2nd gear at 25 mph. It isn't bad, but I've expected more.
Wet grip... it's okay, as long as you don't push it.
Feedback feels good and direct
Handling - the tire tells you clearly when you're overdriving it. But the limit is too low imo.
Wear seems fine so far.
Comfort - not that much. On really smooth surfaces it's okay. On rough tarmac or with many cracks in the road it is pretty loud.On paving stones it sounds like your wheels are made out of wood.
