Yo peeps, i've got gotten rid of my thrashed F1s.....the ominous signs were there...3 tyres kena punctured....tt's it for me man...so off i went to YB n gotten myself them T1Rs.....prior to fitment, i lifted up them tyres n wanted to check the DOM...stated 1607 which meant the 16th week of 2007 aka end Apr 2007. happy w the DOM, n was lagi happy w the weight cuz its lighter than my used F1s....affraid didnt weigh it on the scale so no firm figures. anyways, once they were installed i took it for a quick spin back hm....initial drive feels comfy (all new tyres do...Razz ) and acc seemed brisk ( i'm guessing it cud be due to the lighter tyres) but its quieter than the F1s (even when the F1s were new)....cant comment much on the grip cuz its still under scrub in period....which shd be ready sometime next week, i guess. afro the 1 thing i cant comprehend though, is tt despite the similiar sized profile (205/50/16) as my F1s it actually seemed bigger than it is....scratch not tt its a bad thing though....lol! n here r some infos for bros who might be interested...i got them from YB @ 150 bux per piece inclusive installation, balancing n GST. if paying by cash u cud haggle for a lower price. tt's abt all. stay tuned for the FR next week.......afro

in lieu of the recent wet weather...i had several chance to test out the T1Rs, nw tt i've passed the scrub in period.....here's the lowdown on my personal feel:

Wet conditions
In this aspect, i'd say the Goodyear F1s r better. Not to say tt the T1Rs r shabby, but the F1s felt more assuring in the wet. By saying wet, i mean moderate drizzle w visibility, road surface conditions wet and travelling at 120km/h for a short burst.....of cse w minimal traffic la (lest i got crucified for reckless driving Razz ). tt said, the T1Rs held up admirably in the wet, albeit not as grippy as the F1s. verdict: F1 9, T1Rs 7.5

Dry conditions
For this, i'd say the F1s n the T1Rs share the honour for dry grip. however, the T1Rs r better w lesser rd noise than the F1s. Also, while the sidewalls of the T1Rs r not in the same league as the RE01Rs, it is marginally better than the F1s. This is based on kupping corners @ a near 90 degree gradual bend ( again, i tried tis out with NO vehicles in the dead of the nite). butt feel says the T1Rs felt better. so hopefully this tyre will hold up well in track, PG or SIC. verdict: T1R 8.5 F1 7.5 (due to its soft sidewall).

That said, this kinda concludes my FR on the T1Rs. assessment is based on my butt feel n driving patterns. other users of the T1Rs pls share ur valuable experience w us. Wink

PostSubject: Re: toyo T1R   Mon Sep 03 2007, 18:26

are u guys using Eagle F1 (germany) as a basis for comparison or just the thai ones?

I am on my second set of F1s. the first is the German F1s and the 2nd set is Thai. It is very obvious that the German ones are better in every aspect, from wet and dry driving to durablilty.

bro who complained about the skidding of F1s on MSCPs I believe had bought the Thai ones regardless of what they were told. A check on the tyre walls should give the answers.

I personally did a series of drift at Far East Plaza's tiled drive way Very Happy Jammed brakes after a rain and then anticipated the skids. I knew that place will skid Very Happy so show off a bit to my passenger Very Happy.


Thai F1s standard is not as good on wet. my confidence level for it had since diminished a little. but it is definitely bang for buck!

in lieu of the recent wet weather...i had several chance to test out the T1Rs, nw tt i've passed the scrub in period.....here's the lowdown on my personal feel:

Wet conditions
In this aspect, i'd say the Goodyear F1s r better. Not to say tt the T1Rs r shabby, but the F1s felt more assuring in the wet. By saying wet, i mean moderate drizzle w visibility, road surface conditions wet and travelling at 120km/h for a short burst.....of cse w minimal traffic la (lest i got crucified for reckless driving Razz ). tt said, the T1Rs held up admirably in the wet, albeit not as grippy as the F1s. verdict: F1 9, T1Rs 7.5

Dry conditions
For this, i'd say the F1s n the T1Rs share the honour for dry grip. however, the T1Rs r better w lesser rd noise than the F1s. Also, while the sidewalls of the T1Rs r not in the same league as the RE01Rs, it is marginally better than the F1s. This is based on kupping corners @ a near 90 degree gradual bend ( again, i tried tis out with NO vehicles in the dead of the nite). butt feel says the T1Rs felt better. so hopefully this tyre will hold up well in track, PG or SIC. verdict: T1R 8.5 F1 7.5 (due to its soft sidewall).

That said, this kinda concludes my FR on the T1Rs. assessment is based on my butt feel n driving patterns. other users of the T1Rs pls share ur valuable experience w us. Wink

wow... so (dry+wet)/2=avg, F1 wins right?

bounce bounce bounce this is a comparo btwn 2 tyres i've used b4 based on my butt feel for WET and DRY performances. if points system is hw u determine ur selection then www.tirerack.com is the one for u. Razz Razz Razz

tirerack says best tyres are goodrich KDW, not available in singapore. they also said S03 is high rating tyres both good and dry, but they are sucks in sepang. waste my $$
