    Is it me or are tyre prices flying up. I have a bulge on one of mine, so got a price on a new goodyear F1 Asym. comes it at £117! only talking about 225/45 R17 91Y

    If it wasnt so important I would put it off, but dont really want to risk a blowout.

    As I am only replacing 1 tyre, going to match it to the other rear one. £117 includes fitting, disposal etc. just thought it was a bit excessive.

    If any of you are a member of Cost co, they are doing a deal on Michelin PS3, they're £120 a piece fitted or if you buy 4 you get a 20% discount, I'm getting two done next week and taking the other 2 away with me. Works out at £96 a piece then.

    It's not helping that the value of Sterling is dropping, killing exchange rates, and the VAT is now 20%!

    Im needing some new tyres as well soon, I have the Eagle F1 GSD3s, and have been reading up on the whining/bearing noise issue.

    Has anyone else had this??

    Anyone got the Toyos, are they any good, they are a decent price on Camskill as well....

    I have GSD3's on my S3 and get a bearing sounding noise from the front of my car about 20mph ish. I've been told its just the tyres. Need new fronts soon but no one sells them anymore. Just going to change all 4 for assymetrics I think!
