So does anyone have any experience of GY eagle F1's and MP4S? The Good Years are significantly cheaper and I know are great tyres. What are the advantages of the MP4S' over the GY Eagle F1's?

The PS4 are awesome tyres. :)

I'd like to tell you that parenting gets easier but that would be untrue!! ;)
Cheers (on both points 8) )

For the benefit of some of the questions raised i have ordered the 92 Y rating all round which was the highest they seemed to offer
92Y is correct, BMW put those on my E91 last week.

Apologies for hijacking the thread but currently on my M140 I have MPSS 245/35 on the rear and 225/40 on the front.

I'm thinking about maybe putting Cup 2s on it in the summer but they don't seem to come in a 35 profile, smallest seems to be 40.

So my question is would it be an issue sticking 245/40s on the rear and 225/40 on the front?

Thanks in advance.

Cup2's do come in the correct sizes, see the Michelin website.

245/40 are too big, but you might could consider 235/40/18?

Oh do they, I tried looking on Black Circles and also on Tyre Savings and they didn't seem to come up in a 35 profile.

So even though it's currently got 245s on the rear it'll fit 235s on it? I'm not a tyre expert as you can probably guess.

Thanks.

245/35/18 are the best option, but not commonly available on Supermarket sites. Michelin will be able to advise who has/can get stock.

The outer edges of the fronts usually wear out first through understeer, bald as a billard ball.
M4 LCAs must help with that?

Yes, modified cars are fine.

wish I had done the same but stupidly went for 4 new MPSS last week...only to see that MPS4 were cheaper and Eagle F1 Ass3 were even further by around 30 quid cheaper per tyre on Camskills...and for the vast majority of time in the UK, both the MPS4 or F1 Ass3 are better than the MPSS in my opinion...
