Where can you buy Goodyear f1's?

Tyres, exhausts, suspension, strut braces, air filters, brake pads/rotors and anything else for 'dawn raiders'.

Have you tried here? Not sure which tyres you want since there are a couple of F1 variants.

I recently used them for my corolla. Cheaper than dealers for supply & they have garage ratings.

Quite a few have gone with Falken 452's

If money is a worry then go with Michelin PS2's

I was running 16" 8 spoke with 225/50 F1s on the front and Falken 452s on the rear.

I have now changed to 17" Style 18 with 225/45 Falken ZE912s on the front and 245/40 Michelin Pilot Sport on the rear.

The Falken ZE912s are asymmetric and almost same tread pattern as the Michelin.

The main improvements have been total lack of tram lining which was slight with the F1s and the ZE912s are so much quieter.

The ZE912 are supposedly better wearing than 452s and about £10 cheaper,at £158 for 2 all in.Camskill do them for £61.40 in 225/45 17".

The Michelins were on the 17" wheels with about 5mm but I will definitely replace with ZE912s when they are gone.
