Stock tires F1's

Looks like I will get through this season on these factory supplied f1's.. I don't think I'll put new ones back on.. Seems to take way to long to get them warmed up to stick. Anyone else feel the same about these tires?

Takes about a lap to get them sticky. there's better tires but for the price the G2 there about as good as it gets.

They do seem to be holding up very well on mine to. Just takes to long on the street to get warmed up. what if I cleaned them with some alcohol? The prior owner did not really drive the car.

Best track oriented street tire for the money...I like the Michelin Super Sports for their long life and wet traction ability...but the f1's my choice between the two for track days hands down unless it's a wet track.

5k miles so far on mine, and I have noticed a bit of excessive wear on the outside of the front left, but we'll see how that goes.

I dunno, they're slippery when cold, but seem to be like flypaper when warmed up. I'm sure there's equivalent (at least) out there, but I'm still inclined to just replace them with the same thing when these wear out.

Be careful. Alcohol will dry out your rubber.

Also get 19 x 11" rims and run the Kuhmo V720s. Freaking killer handling performance and grip.

A friend was over last night and came up with a good idea. Install a small reservoir with water in the engine bay and run lines to back tires with small nozzles in the wheel well to squirt the tires. The water in the res should warm up quick in the bay allowing a few squirts of water and a quick burn out should get them tacky right away. I don't drive my car as a dd so might consider this...
