No, but I have had the T1Rs on for about 3 weeks now and I really like them. They are at least as sticky as the F1s (although I have 285s in the back now, so that makes it hard to compare) but as I have stated before, I believe that the sidewall stiffness is probably 40-50% softer than the F1s, in other words, only about half as stiff, so cornering ability is reduced. Those numbers are extremely subjective, but the sidewall compression is very noticable when doing some spirited driving taking corners at speed (0.6-0.8 g meter) compared to stock Goodyears. But I still really like them.

I don’t have experience with both but I can say that the T1R’s are very close to the stock F1’s. I replaced a set Pirelli P-Zero with the Toyo T1-R’s and man it felt like I was backed to the stock stick. I hope that helps some…
