Maybe but I'm only passing on what one person said. TBH, I've used them and they didn't last at all, far too soft.

Can't argue about them being soft LOL

Funny how when it comes to tyres everyone has their own top 3 and that they are all different

I really wanted 255/45/17 in Goodyears F1s,but they dont make them! I dont want the car to sit on 255/40/17 as it catches speed bumps and ruins my splitter. So looks like Im heading towards Toyos (Which I had on my Subarus) or SO1 Bridgestones-SO3s are not made in 255/45/17 either!!!

255/45/17 is quite a rare size and not all manufacturers offer them.

Ive had Toyos on other cars in the past, I will say one thing about them they feel better if you over inflate them slightly. IMO they are the best wet tyre I have ever used but far from the best in the dry. The problem is the sidewall isnt as good as other brands.

Really? I thought they were the cheaper versions of the 451s. How are they in the wet as might be needing some new boots soon.

Had the BF's and they were OK, but need over inflating slightly to get the best from them, prefer the new Toyo Proxes TR-1's (not S's as sidewall not so good)

The Toyo's like around 34 to 36 psi in 40 profiles.

Have used Eagle F1s on the road and was adeqately impressed.
Used Toyo T1R on a set of R33 rims for track days and was very impressed. Now use T1Rs on the rims I use for the road. Wear seems to be very good as well. T1Rs are also slightly cheaper than the T1Ss.
Also good in the wet.
