Why do you think Goodyears are bad? They are a fantastic quality tire, I believe they are the tire of choice for Ferrari (Fiorino tire). And if you check Tire Rack you can see a comparison between the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3, the Bridgestone Potenza S-03 Pole Position and the Michelin Pilot Sport. Go here http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/gy_f1_gs_d3.jsp and here http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/...d3_charts.html this says some pretty lofty things about Goodyear. Next time, don't just go with a name. Just because 50 Cent mentions Pirelli in his raps, doesn't mean they are the best thing around.

I just got my Focus and it's just got the Pirelli's that it came with, but I took it on the highway and around the city the other day and it handles just great.

At my dealership, all the Volvo S60 2.5T, T5, and AWD models with 17" wheels come with Pirelli P6's. They seem to be really good and handle really well, especially with the AWD model. I was really suprised when they starting coming on our Foci. After I wear out the Firestones, I may look at getting a set. I've never owned Pirelli's before so I am quite curious. Thanks for allowing me to put my 2 cents in. :-)

I went strictly BFG's on my trucks and Jeep, since I bought the tires for the Focus in a package with my wheels and I don't even know the brand of them I'm gonna stick with BFG's til I understand car tires a lil better.
