My opinion (and yours?) on New Posi-Quiet Brake pads and Goodyear F1 235/40/ZR17's

This is more of an FYI with my experience on with the Pads and tires. I know several people have looked at these tires, but I haven't seen a thread with anyone who has put them on yet. (I may have missed it) So just thought I'd share.

Well I now have over 40k on the car and 20K was in the first year.

So after almost 4 years, I started hearing the warning tab on the front brakes, I bought the Posi-Quiet from Dezod. Great pads, no issues at all, no squeaking. Don't even notice they were changed. I did not have the rotors turned, I don't think they needed it. Didn't touch the backs. Moving on!!!

First tire change from the stock Dunlops. I bought the Goodyear Eagle GS-D3 F1's 235/40/ZR17 off ebay. Paid about $345.00 with shipping and sales tax.

They fit fine on the stock (comp) rims. They had more problem getting the old ones off than putting the new ones on, and in the process they (Sams club tire dept) damaged one of the rims, with a pry mark across the polished lip. So I'm trying to get that taken care of with them.

I'm lowered on the Progress springs and their is no rubbing or other issues. Great tire, enough that even my wife noticed the difference the tires made in traction.

I don't think I'm the first guinea pig on these ebay tires.
But either way, I would recommend them if you need tires, great price on a great tire without any fitment issues.

Of course YMMV.

Need to include the entire name of the tires...I'm assuming those are the F1 GS-D3's ...great tire but they are being discontinued. I am waiting on shipment of Eagle F1 Asymmetrics. As far as tirerack was conerned they bested the PS2's in the last comparison test and for a much lower price. They are supposedly better in dry traction but slightly worse in wet traction compared to the GS-D3's.. I will let you know in a couple weeks how they feel in the dry. Those tires on ebay are a steal if your fine with a tire manufactured in 2005 ish and no easy to find replacements. Glad you like them, I wanted to buy them a year ago but it wasn't time for replacements yet!

I go through rubber fast enough that I could care less that they're old, lol. I won't get a year out of them, and for the price I can replace a pair if I have to and still be ahead, lol.

Mine are on a truck somewhere, looking forward to getting them...

I sprung for the Hawk HPS pads though. i have much experience with them on other cars, can't wait to put them on this one!

Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.

that actually looks awesome!! i thought there would be a lot of rubber hanging over the side. a 225/45 looks too balloonish to me. that looks perfect.

i was on tirerack yesterday and they have the 235/40 availible in different brands still. next time i need tires...i'm def looking into this size!!! looks awesome!!
