First place goes to the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3. As an all-around high-performance tire, you can't beat this GoodYear.It was the best performer in all three wet-track testsand was very compitent in the dry. it generated 0.94 g on the dry skidpad, only 0.01 g off the first-place BFGoodrich and tied with the Yokohama and Hankock.
The GoodYear gripped so well that you might not have been certain the road was wet, and it lost traction in a gentle, predictable manner. It held on to the wet track with 0.82 g of stick, an impressive figure considering the worst tire in that test made only 0.67g.
