There are a whole bunch of Eagle F1 GS-D3's in that size floating around. I went through 2 sets before I started on the Nangkangs.
They are NOS (New Old Stock) that's being cleared out, and there are still a bunch out there. Just make sure they're in good shape when the arrive, as some of the build dates go back as far as 2005. $250 is a little optimistic, $350 or so for a set of 4 seems to be the going rate right now. That's a steal, they're great tires - especially in the wet, arguably the best true performance tire ever made for hydroplaning resistance.
They aren't so good in corners, strangely enough. The sidewalls on the F1's are really soft, and when cornering at speed they will flex BADLY. You can feel it start to "hop" on the sidewall, very unsettling. This is why I stopped buying them - in Vegas, I need the wet performance like I need a cavity search - never. I ride the hell out of ramps at night, so the sidewalls DO matter, lol.
Plus, with my alignment I go through s set of 280 treadwear tires in about 6k miles, lol, so the cheap Nankangs - which corner harder than the F1's oddly enough, maybe not as much raw grip but MUCH more confidence inspiring to their limit, are my choice because frankly $236 shipped for 4 tires means $1,000 a year on street rubber instead of $1,400 to $2,400. Which means I can afford R-comps for auto-x and track days.
