Initial impressions are pretty good. I put a set of 225/45/17 F1 A/S on about 2-3 weeks ago. I usually don't buy high dollar tires but I found a deal on eBay for a set at $85 a piece, so I couldn't pass that up. It's been dry and sunny here lately, so I've only been on dry roads with temps between 40-75 degrees. They are very quiet and the ride is more comfortable than the Bridgestone S03s I just took off. The S03s were 235/40/17 and are a summer tire, so it isn't really a fair comparison. They seem to handle great, more traction than anyone should need for a street tire. They seem to share the same characteristics as the regular Eagle F1, but with some added cold weather capability. Overall, I am glad I bought them and I look forward to giving them a workout in colder weather, rain and snow in the next few months.
