    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... http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/audi-s...-fronts-only-any-suggestions.html#post1629928

    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

    Conti Sport 5's the dogs....best tyres I have had...and am an old git!....don't think these have a good rep for stretching if I remember correctly.

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