    Hi All,

    Ive currently got some really crap Nexan tyres on my S3, and want to go for the Eagle F1's, so far the cheapest i can find are 163 each !! OUCH! Wanted to know if any of you can reccomend anyone other than Rochford tyres, as im sure theres a better deal to be had, thanks for your help

    All seem a bit steep on those sites as well guys, is 163 the best im going to get? Or can anyone reccomend another tyre that is as good as the Eagle F1's for less money? Or a place that any of you have bought F1's for less?

    652 quid for 4 tyres seems very harsh indeed!

    Are you sure it its not just the tyre size that is making it expensive? 205/55r16 eagle f1 are £58 without fitting at mytyres.

    Should you not be going for 225/45/17 for standard S3 Avus wheels, 245 seems a bit extreme and that is why they are costing so much

    Thats seems very pricey I Paid £105 per corner for 225 40 18 a place just out side of Bracknell Binfield tyres I think it was called, they always have a big queue - ie at least an hour to wait but he price is good

    I think one kwik fit or ATS normally offer a buy 3 get one free deal - not sure on brands though i'm afraid

    might be worth a look?

    If you fancy a trip out to sunny bracknell it should be less than £370 for 4 and probably even less. That's assuming it's 225 / 45 / 17s you need?
