Disturbing stuff!!!
Volvo forum wrote:To all that run eagle F1 GSD3's,i thought i would let you know that i have found that there are two types!There propper one that is a really good tyre,does'nt squeak and sticks really well is made in Germany,and has this written on the sidewall.The second has made in Thailand written on the side wall,they both look the same but my god they are not!The one from Thailand is horrible it squeaks and induces alot of understeer,and generally has no grip,its ok for traction and breaking thought lol.I am still unsure as to weather or not its a copy or not,but reading around on the internet there apears to be two compounds from goodyear.
So before the tyre fitter pops them on have a look,if they have made in Thailand,run they are nasty lol.
Just went outside to check mine and they're genuine 'Made in Germany' items and have been really impressed with the performance. I really wouldn't put anything else on my car now I've got these ones.

Steer clear of the Thai ones!

Can a mod sticky this thread please?

Seems that the Thai ones are a different compound that aren't fit for use in the EU (not E-marked...so shouldn't even be sold in this country apparently).

If it's got 'made in Germany' on the sidewall then you're onto a winner. I love mine :)
