Goodyears are good consistent tires that will last a pretty long time.

I personally don't care for the GYs and just couldn't get them to work for me and my car. On back to back to back tests between the Kumho V710, Hoosier S04 and the GYs, the Kumhos were consisently .5 per lap quicker than anything else and were the easiest to drive...by far. The Ho-Hos were next and then the GYs. ...for what it's worth

Thanks for the info. I have a chance to get these at a very reduced price, I will be doing about 4 DE's this summer and don't want to burn up the stock tires. One more question for the racing guys, do these tires need to be heat cycled? :zboobie:

I never ran the 710 but the Hoosiers have given me the fastest times and the GY a close second. Kuhmos turn to grease real fast and then wear fast. I run against a bunch of 710 guys and it's slip and slide time for them in my review mirror. PLus I kept some here working. Kuhmos and tire rack support was horrible when I had tire problems. I didn't want money just some answers. After shipping the tires back they told me they were lost. No answers but I did get a partial check. After running 165 at Pocono I wanted answers not a crappy check or even a full refund. Funny how they lost two tires isn't it? No answers either.

In my humble opinion, all three are great tires. I have raced at several tracks, including my home track of Memphis on Hoosiers R3S04, Kumho V710, and Goodyear GS-CS. I hold the track record on the Goodyears. They are a good tire.

That said, I have been racing on the Kumho V710 recently as they are 20-25% cheaper and I can't afford what I'm doing.

If you can pick up a set of Goodyear GS-CS cheap, I wouldn't hesitate to get them. :cheers:

GSCS work well and out last the Hoosiers. I think fresh Hoosiers are bit faster the first day of an event, after that it's a slight edge to the GSGC IMO.

They run about $900 in stock sizes from Shelby in Gardena, Ca.
