I need a new pair of front tyres, rang a few places...

I can get a pair of GSD3's for £115 each or T1-R's for £172 fitted.

Taking into account the price difference, are the Toyo's much better than the GSD3's to justify spending extra cash for them?

I have to make a quick choice, I'm leaving in two days for a trip around Benelux and need something asap, today actually :)

I've gone from Dunlops to Toyo's (only because they came on the new alloys) and, as has been said, the toyos are awefull in the wet. Actually they are dangerous in the wet, wheel spinning in 3rd gear and I only have 220bhp at the moment. As soon as I have the money I am changing them. I will never buy toyo tyres, total and utter crap give me back my Dunlop sport maxx's

Thats a strange price comparison as usually quotes i get, the F1s are near twice the price of the T1-Rs... F1s are better overall...

I got the F1's fitted today for £230. That's 2 front tyres 235x40x18.
The reason the were cheap(ish) is that they're the GSD3 ones which are discontinued and replaced by the Asymmetrics.

I seem to be all on my own on here running Dunlops
Looks like it!!!! ;) lol

All 3 of my imports came over from Japan with Dunlops on 'em. I had no issue with Dunlops

In the defence of Dunlop tyres I'd say they are consistent & reliable (wet, dry, etc..) They just don't excel in any one particular type of weather condition. Good choice if you only have the one set of alloys on your car all year round.
