Hi everyone,

I will replace my tires and narrowed the list down to these two. Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric 2 vs Kumho KU39.

As you know Goodyear produces 235/40R19 -our original size- together with 245/40R19 (which has a lower rolling resistance). They are 530 TL each (167 pounds) in Turkey

Kumho only produces 245/40R19 and 360 TL each (113 pounds) in Turkey.

Which one should I choose? Does it worth having Goodyear paying 680 TL (215 pounds) more?

Thanks,
Sercan

I have no experience of the Goodyears, but the Kumho tyres lasted 30k miles on my old car over 4 years. :)

I'm a Michelin Pilot Super Sport user on our RCZ, they are the best IMO. Basically you want whatever gives you the most confidence on the road, and don't cheap out on tyres when doing so. Whatever you decide to get, let us know your thoughts.
