I did a lot of research on the Goodyaer F1 Gs-D3's last year and they were my favorite pick hands down. Now I find a great price on them (size isn't ideal at 235/40/17 on stock rims) but I found out they are being discontinued. I know a guy who works for Discount tire that will let me bring them in unmounted and allow me to purchase the road hazard on them but im concerned. With a discontinued tire (that is like 3 years old before it goes onto my rim!!!!) what will they do If, heaven forbids, I get dmg that is not repairable. I am considering a few other tires such as the Michelin PS2's, Bridgestone Pole Positions (RE050A), Goodyear Eagle F1 Asym's (replacing the GS-d3'????) Yokohama S.Drive's and the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec and a couple others I can't recall right now.
Any thoughts? I need something that won't leave me hydroplaning when it rains (rarely but the built up oil on the road doesn't help!) and rides decently comfortably and will last me at least 25-30K miles when driven softly 95% of the time. I got 50K out of the stock lops if that helps. Discount tire has always taken good care of me and my friends as well, would like to hear your opinion.
