The F1's on the 2010 GT500 and the standard 2011 GT500 are rock hard hockey puck rubber. I replaced mine with Hankook evo V12's (in the stock sizes) and that was a HUGE upgrade, straight line traction and cornering grip both improved dramatically.
The 2011 GT500's with the SVT-PP have the much better F1 G2 tires. But they are still pretty hard and weak for straight line traction.
