    I'm currently using this tire for my Mark X for a few months now and my experience is more or less similar. Overall a good tire except a bit noisy.

    Hi Tom,
    To my understanding, these GY F1 D5 is to replace their aging GY GS-D3. The F1 Asy 2 is to replace their F1 Asy.....

    The F1 D5 and F1 Asy 2 were launched together......

    Being directional, if the wear becomes uneven the noise will become louder...

    ---------- Post added at 02:34 PM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 02:26 PM ----------

    GY F1 Asy 2 size start with 17" and with lower profile like 45 series....

    Yeah, I would've bought the Asy if it's available in the sizes I was looking for. The D5 is the next best from GY. Just a little bit noisy but still acceptable IMHO.

    At the tyre launch the "gwai loh" test driver in FD2, purposely push the car at the slalom curve at around 140kph with 2 passengers (me one of them), and it held well.....:driver:
