SEAT Leon FR 1.8 180HP Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 given 100% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 spirited miles
I love these tyres that are very inexpensive for the performance. Every spring, when I switched back from winter tyres, I bought a pair of new summer tyres, upgrading each year until I finally had the F1 Asymmetrics on all four corners. They completely suit the car. Grip, especially in the wet is amazing and they are very comfortable. It's important to make sure that wheel alignment is correct. Unlike winter tyres, they won't tolerate any toe out and the effect on steering will be obvious. They can still deliver the performance down to 5 degC but grip, especially if the tyres are more than five years old, completely disappears below 3 degC. Currently replaced by a set of All Seasons until the spring.

These were great winter tyres that were finally replaced for reasons I'll explain below. They actually still had a lot of tread left. Grip in the dry and wet was very good. When they were new, I could drive on ice that I couldn't walk on as if it was a damp road. They made short work of moderate snow. They were extremely comfortable and usually quiet although certain road surfaces caused a drone. Handling was OK although the tread squirmed under hard acceleration, needing care to keep in a straight line. I noticed when I put them on for the fifth winter that cold weather grip wasn't as good. When I put them on for season six, the tread had hardened further. They had no grip whatsoever on a slightly icy road and were immediately scrapped. This may be an issue for most winter tyres. In future I'll be scrapping tyres when they're five years old, regardless of wear

The original tires that came from the manufacturer were Continental Sportcontact 5 which were definitely of a high standard and allowed the vehicle to be stable in any condition. After replacing the tires straight it was felt that the vehicle had become "soft" and not really suitable for the type of vehicle I was driving and not for the nature of the suspensions. The sidewall of the tire is not strong enough and is "crushed" in any lateral load applied to the tire. Low level tire but for the price of course the value is worth it.
