F1 Goodyear all season tires

I have about 1000 miles on my Sport have the F1 GY AS tires and they are nice except when turn there seems to be a rub noise at decent speeds otherwise I love them. Granted I will be ordering summer tires come said season.

My 13 SHO had F1 Supercar's on them from the factory and i just wasn't happy with them. Waiting for the Contis to wear down enough to justify upgrading.

Not really a town but a rural area. These guys (and me) have been testing their cars on these roads for years. Strange that they have the Goodyears.. Mentioned in the previous post I've only seen Contis on them.
I'd be interested in meeting up - but haven't been to He11 yet. Been told to go there many times but haven't followed through! haha

I like the tire but there are some problem on Goodyear for my Fusion Sport, psi kind of unsteady, sometime 36psi when is cold weather and after I drove the car it can rise up to 45psi, I ask the dealer they told me to drop the psi but Goodyear recommend to maintain 42psi.
Is that because of the material Goodyear are using that the psi have a big different when it is cold and hot.
I used to drive a Volvo S60, my psi is always the same or else there will be warning light on my dash board. Then my tire is Continental Extreme Contact all season, very smooth and quite.

When I switched to 20's, I put 255/35 Falken Ziexs on, and they've been fairly consistent with psi, at least according to the TPMS sensors and display. They'll fluctuate between 39 psi cold and 42 psi when warm, but all of the tires read the same. Not particularly brand loyal, just wanted some decent tires to mount on the 20s. Car isn't driven in the snow (that's what the Tundra 4wd is for), and if I can help it, not in the rain either. It's a garage queen, so a 3-season tire with more grip than longevity is fine for me.
