Any feedback on the Goodyear eagle F1 Supercar G2?

Just like it says, I am considering putting those on my ss, looking for feedback on how they are for traction, particularly street launching.

These tires have a lot of grip. Will be towards the upper end for a street tire. This is why they put them on the ZL1 Camaro and the Shelby GT500 from the factory to handle the heavy horsepower.

I have the 285/35 20s on the back and love them. Just wish they offered a size for the front.

285/35/20 on all four corners in my 1LE. Good tire for the street and they did very well at an open track weekend. Very sticky when warmed up and really stuck during hard cornering. I've got a set of Pilot Super Sports in the same size on my alternate wheels. The Super Sports will last considerably longer, are a little better in the wet, and handle similarly on the track. If it is a daily driver, I'd go with the Michelins. If it is a weekend car, either would be good. Have to really watch the F1 G2 if the temps are und 40 degrees. They can and will crack. Michelins do better with colder temps but are still a summer tire.
