i did some serious looking around the past week or so at my next allseason tire and this is what i'm going with... with the eagle f1 a/s being a close second.


the gy is going to be better in the winter, but the yoko is going to be better in the dry... which is more important to me...


and it has a great tread rating too...

I was between these also. I went with the GY F1 A/S. Go look over on tirerack at reviews on both. Also look at the tirerack tests of tires. The Advans would've cost me $35 more per tire. I'm on Long Island and haven't seen any snow yet.

I personally prefer the GY's due to their better bad weather response and grip

yea, I am thinking of the GY F1 allseason more... but in here locally, it seems to cost a lot for that, that's why I am lookin at other tires like advan s4, and contiextreme contact....

still need to call a few more tire stores to see...

a good competitor in an already crowded catagory but, it does merit a look. Personally I prefer the next catagory up in performance all-season tires for the improved handling but, they do narrow the gap between the high and ultra high performance all-season tire classes

so you'd put them in the high performance category instead of the ultra high performance?
