Hi,

Will be replacing my Run Flats with 215/45 R17 Goodyear Eagle F1 however on checking on Blackcircles their appears to be two versions available :

1) 215/45 R17 Goodyear Eagle F1 W (87) at £88.23 fitted or
2) 215/45 R17 Goodyear Eagle F1 Y (91) reinforced at £99.45 fitted

Which one should I choose for normal spirited road driving ?

Thanks

Perm

The 215/45-17 tires with a W speed rating and 87 load rating are fine because these ratings are higher than OEM 205/45-17 tires (V speed rating and 84 load rating).

I went for the extra load version and am very happy with them. They are nowhere near as stiff as my previous 16" runflats but offer enough support to give confidence in the twisty bits. I wouldn't like them to be any softer but maybe that's just my driving style.
