When will this tyre land on our shore?
It has been a few months since the launch date, anyone has any inside news ?

Good news for those looking for alternative shoes for their ride.

Yeah.. for the 3 types of SuperSport series, it is the upper end market. Don't think they will bring in so soon.

As for the F1A5, hope to see it sooner, cause ps4 having quite a good following here, even thou it's slightly cheaper when it was launched 2 1/2 years ago.

It's good to have a healthy competition. Hope that this F1A5 fare well in the comming reviews, as the F1A3 did not fare well against ps4 in the past 2 years.

Hmm based on that test numbers, the CPC6 actually should be slightly ahead of the f1a5.

CPC6 exterior motif pattern genuinely sucks, looks just like cheapo tyre brand even from a distance. I saw it on one car driven by a manager from singapore, i can't believe it was the CPC6 until i really took a good look.

So F1A5 sure win here biggrin.gif

Oh is it? Hahaha I don't really care much about sidewall designs but generally Goodyear F1 and Michelin PS series are good ones. My CSC5 sidewall also not so good looking last time.

Yes, F1A5 is similar to PS4, very good in the wet coz still have more water channels and cuts, and also slightly softer construction. As the category gets higher, it shifts more focus towards dry grip so need more rubber at the expense of water channels, and stiffer construction.

Well,, what do you know 😁 The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 landed on our shore recently.

Having their latest tech of Impulse Control Compound, ActiveBraking Technology & Power Cushion Technology

With just 2 sizes for the moment 225/45/R17 and 235/50/R18.

This suck if you need to claim the tyre. Taken from our malaysia Goodyear website.
