Incoming 1LE and tire question (replacement)

looks like i have a white 1le coming to me tommorrow or after xmas!

And by tires i meant only the tires. Keeping the rims. (sorry about that!!)

I wasnt planning on getting so soon so i didnt have time to ask a question beforehand. (i know, never put off today what you can do tommorrow)(or something like that)

the question is, i dont really want the tires that come with the car. would a good suggestion is to drive it as little as possible trying to find someone who would buy them?

second questions is how much are they worth used? (not like 200 ++ miles.. but depending on where it is and how they get it to my dealer mileage)?

been looking around these forums and seeing tires that i like to put on. Nothing fancy or super racing tires. just good solid tires that will last .. 36000 miles or more. (unsure what mileage the ones that come with the car are expected to last to)

thanks again and hoping that the car shows up monday. dec 24th. i do love me. (dont even say it... )

thanks in advance.

thank you again and i have seen you on the forums answering and helping where you can, great job!

Both fell through. unsure exactly why, but they found a black one minus the npp. i said, while i dont mind black. i really prefer white. and just want the basic, rs/npp. i dont need a car cover or nav.

Will work with dealership and see if any more are inbound. Not sure how that works exactly. considering ordering and waiting will be the worst part!

thanks everyone for input and maybe i cas spend time and do more research!

merry x-mas everyone!

Hello All,
Well I am in the same boat here. I will be looking a replacing the F1's as soon as my car is deliverd. So what is a good "all-season" high performance tire for the 1LE. I have been thinking/reading about the Toyo Proxes 4+ in 275/40R20. What are your thoughts? Oh and I will be selling the Goodyears. So If any one in the Utah/Southwest is interested let me know.

Keep in mind that the size you are looking at are a whole inch larger in diameter. I think they will fit, but you might want to check around and see if anyone is running that size up front.

When my goodyears wear down all the way, I will be switching to Michelin Super Sport's. I know it's not an all season tire, but it sure is one of the best performance tires with great rain and cold temp capabilities. Search for reviews on these. It is also one of the highest rated tires on tirerack. They do tend to be a little pricey though. I think they are well worth it. Your location and normal weather conditions will certainly play a big part in your decision though.

They will fit but will look more stretched on the rear, and they are about .5" taller than the tires that come on, which is the same sa stock SS tires.

They will definitely look more stretched in the rear. I would suggest a wider tire for the rear. And 275/40/20's are 0.81 inches taller than the stock 285/35/20's to be exact, but in the real world it will certainly vary.

how much wider? i am keeping the ones i got with the car. figure i'll get 2-3 years of wear on them unless i get a offer i cant refuse..

tricky part is finding the same brand/style in 2 various sizes and not costing a arm and a small leg.

I also was considering 275/40/20's front and back.
all i found was:

Eagle GT (W-Speed Rated)
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Qty=4&i1_Qty=4

or these:
g-Force Sport COMP-2
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Qty=4&i1_Qty=4

help? (for later on down the road) thx!

also incoming mod: exhaust since i didnt get npp.

Borla 11788 Rear Section Exhaust. Atak.

I don't know much about either of those tires you mentioned. As to your question about width, I decided on going with 275/35 in front and 295/35 in rear since the Michelin super sports run wider than almost every other tire. You also don't want to forget about the ratio between front and rear diameters because the ABS module will freak out. I'm not sure of the threshold, but I think 1 inch difference in diameter between front and rear would be the farthest I would go. It's too bad the stock setup didn't come staggered like the zl1, but that's a whole nother topic by itself. Since you are wanting a square setup, you shouldn't have to worry about ABS issues. It was just a heads up in case you change your mind and want to switch to a staggered setup.

I don't try to go cheap when it comes to tires. I always like the summer performance tires because of the better traction when it's hot, and the stiffer sidewalls for better steering response. But you have to pay to play. All seasons tend to have a more flexible sidewall. If you can find some that don't change the crispness of the 1LE's steering, let me know lol. It's all up to you and what you want out of your car and what your budget is.

For exhaust, borla atak is pretty good. Do you want a better sound or more volume? If you want loud, check my vid in my build thread. If you want sound, do an axle back if you don't plan on doing any major mods later and have a lower budget. Or a cat back if you have the money. Personally my favorite setup would be LT headers and a nice catback, but that will be after the warranty is up.

I strongly recommend staying away from any tire size that few mfrs currently support. Chances are that future availability will be even poorer.

Everytime I see this car in AGM I am like a kid waiting for Christmas. I think that is the best color, hands down!

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaang that is hot. No matter how many pictures of 1LE's in any color I see my jaw still drops everytime.

Good choice man, you will love this car. Go check So Cal's thread, he pulled that hood wrap on his AGM and it is growing on me badly. I like the "no glare" on my black one when I drive though and had problems with glare on tracks with my older shinny black car but that is an easy fix since my helmet cover is tinted and in summer I wear sun shades driving around.

Sounds like he wants a nice daily driven tire that will last a long time (36,000 miles). Those F1's are not gonna do that I think no matter what type of driving.

I have another question about his tire choice but don't want to hate, his car, I am sure he has reasons, so a decent all season tire would do good.

thanks for that. and initially wanted a tire that was going to last me longer then the stock ones. its pretty much just a weekend car and since i got it i put 250 miles already. Funny, my gf and i were driving back from shopping and she said, you may want to get a radar detector. i was like.. wow.. thats what i was just thinking.

as to the tires choice, no problem. ask away. so far good sound advice. i am old enought to know better, but old enough to listen to reason. lol..

note: decided to keep the stock ones. i should get a couple of years out of them. (if i can stop driving all over the place.. do we need milk? i'll got get some. ) lol..

thanks for all the input and i dont feel any hate from you guys. i'd rather hear the question, i could be wrong! thx!

At 220 treadwear, anywhere from 20k to 30k is a reasonable expectation. That's street driving up to some pretty enthusiastic driving as long as you don't spin or slide the tires very often. Obviously it'll be less if you do much autocross, HPDE, or dragstrip activity.

You can maximize your tires' tread life by matching inflation pressures and alignment specs to your own individual driving. What you end up with may not be as per "stock" specs or factory recommendation (mine rarely do, regardless of which car).


Good luck with your new car. Once you get used to it, you'll have a better idea what you want out of your tires (and other things). You're probably better off trying to keep the things you like and change things that you know you don't like once you know what they are, than it would be trying to guess ahead of time what they might even be.

Comparing UTQG rating between Manufacturers of tires is worthless,
a 220 rating on a goodyear is based on their test tire rated at 100.
e.g. a gy tire with a 65k treadwear warranty, is rated at 740 utqg,
so under optimal conditions every 100 pts, if they warranteed performance tires, would put the f1 gen2 at abt 20,000miles, in a perfect world. Probably not attainable.
btw.
took delivery of my 1le agm, 2 days ago,and ordered 275/40rf19, All seasons and rims for the cold times of the year!

All I can say is that I've managed to get 10,000 to about 12,500 miles per 100 treadwear over a variety of tire makes and 220-TW models. That's consistently been my experience over a period that covers the entire length of time that the NHTSA ratings have been around.

Other than not launching hard, my driving is pretty darn enthusiastic, so it's hard for me to understand people not getting at least close to 10,000 miles/100TW unless they're doing something wrong or don't have the car set up for the way that they're trying to drive.
