    Tyre choices?

    Hey guys, need some advice on what set of tyres to put on some 19' rotiform blq's. (will be fitting in the spring) I want to stretch them a little so they sit flush under my arches.

    Rim specs :
    18x8.5"
    5x100 ET45

    im currently on 18" Goodyear eagle f1's, for the 5k I've driven on them they seem great.

    I've just finished a set of eagle f1's and found them pretty poor once half way through their wear. They also seemed to wear unevenly no matter how anal I was about tyre pressures.

    Nobody else found this?

    I had issues on my old SEAT Leon Cupra with F1s wearing strangely. I didn't like them in the end and wouldn't have them again. More here... UNEVEN TYRE WEAR... FRONTS ONLY...ANY SUGGESTIONS??

    uneven wear is common on all tyres as you should have them balanced every 10000 miles at the very least.for all it costs to get them balanced compared to a new set of tyres.i get mines balanced every service and have done the same with continental sports and toyo proxys and have found the f1s better.ordered a new set of genuine 18" a4 le mans alloys and will be putting f1s on them 2.would defo stick with them jay.try ebay for a cheaper set or if you are good at checking tyres try some part worns out

    Hmm, stuck for choices. Anyone had any experience in the stretching tyres area? I'm wanting them to sit flush under the arch.
