Which Eagle F1 do you have?  Can you tell us more about the seperation failure?  I'm think of getting the F1 GS-D3 soon and would like to know as much about it as possible, thanks!

No, but the Falken 512 is a all-season performance, I don't think you'll be happy with them if you come from the F1's.  The GRB-451 would be a much better choice, I know someone who has them on his S4 in stock size and likes them, good dollar to performance ratio.

Not sure about Fuzion tires, haven't heard much about them.

>From my research for ultra high performance tires, right now the F1 GS-D3 and Toyo T1-S and the new T1-R seems to be getting really good reviews, and are not too expensive either.  Other than that the Bridgestone S-03 and Michelin PS2 are the other more expensive alternative.

Sure you can, but it just so happens that most high performance tires are directional in design, and for a good reason.
