Good deal but no centres in Scotland. Heat added.

+ 10% off if throuh my halifax.

My one can't get me in until the 7th. Booooo

Can you please explain what 'fully fitted' means? Does this mean that the cost includes fitting with a new valve, balancing the wheel and the old tyre is scrapped for you? I assume it doesn't just mean that the tyre is fully fitted on the rim

"All prices include fitting, valves, balancing and casing disposal and VAT"

Thanks you

I have used F1 for tyres and MOT and found them to be extremely good. Better than Halfords and loads better than Kwikfit (known locally as ****).

Don't forget TCB offer 2.62% cashback on online purchases and 10.5% on MOT/Services

I found f1 to be crap. felt like a 2nd class customer as loads of cars were leaving before mine and arrived after me. took 2 hours wait to change 2 tyres!! (saw it sitting on ramps for ages) guess they are not interested with people buying from the internet, don't blame them to be fair !

I think you're getting confused with rallying.

Bah, so close, 90 odd quid for 205/50/r16 that I need.

Great tyres, although you need to upgrade your car if it's only running 16s haha

These tyres are incredible. Use them in my highly tuned car and it sticks to the road better than any other tyre and I've used ALOT

Halfords and kwik fit are not exactly fair competition to beat. A five year old with a pair of dirty overalls and plastic bag full of spanners would look more pro than either of them

The same was with me, 2 tyres - 2h20mins,I guess they don't like people using internet deals/vouchers. However I use them frequently and if the price is good I'm OK to wait.

Great tyres and price ....but F1 auto centre ...not so good...sorry to say my local centre is hopeless .

Trolling or clueless boy racer?

Anyway the A rating for wet grip is tempting however fuel efficiency is only rated E. I was looking at some Dunlop tyres that were rated B and B. any idea what the difference in MPG is likely to be between B and E? I drive 20k miles a year so fuel efficiency is important to me but if the difference is marginal I'd rather have the tyre with more grip.

Taken from Continental website:

The grades are A to G, with D not being used. The difference between each grade means a reduction or increase in fuel consumption of between 2.5%-4.5%. That's a difference of about 0.42-0.56 mpg for a 36 mpg car per grade.

The RS 3 are showing as A for Wet and C for Fuel Consumption. Are you looking at a different tyre to be getting 'E'?

Have you used Michelin pilot sport tyres? Just wondering as these are considerably cheaper than the Michelin for me, but I've never experienced any tyre with greater wet grip than the pilot sport, just wondering if you had any experience with both?

They screwed up my tracking and ate my new tyres in 2 months.

Bunch of Cowboys. So I use a local place owned by some Indians ironically. Excellent service and prices.

The reputation of F1 auto centres is not good.

Sorry, can you explain, what is that all about?

Excellent tyres. As for the comments about mpg and saving fuel? LOL

They have a weak pnt:
"Popped two onto the front of my car (A 2.0 TDI Audi A4). They are AMAZING in wet conditions, and pretty decent in dry if I'm honest, but I now find myself having to replace them after around 8000kms. I'm not a boy racer so could not understand how they wore so quickly. It's pretty ridiculous if I'm honest. Should have read the wear reviews on this site... I would NOT recommend these, unless you live in a lake and only drive to the shops once a week!"

I have used these tyres, they were good until I used continental tyres for the first time and they were even better.

Not sure where I saw the 'E'. I'm sure when I originally looked on the F1 website these were rated as 'E' but now it does say C. Maybe just my eyes. Thanks for the info. Basically very little difference in MPG then.

What a helpful and constructive comment.


That wear review is misleading I think. The guy only got 5000 miles out of them? I think he had problems with his tracking or similar, a user on pistonheads reports that he only started to notice a loss of grip after 20k.

Strongly recommend these tyres, by far the best I've had fitted. Been round the brands and I have these as my summer tyres and the equivalent M+S for my winter tyres on our 2 cars. My son also likes the sharks moulded in to them!

what tyres do you usually use? I'd expect short tread wear on grippy tyres but 8,000km's doesn't seem much at all

Pirelli P6000's had excellent tyre life but I found it was too much of a sacrifice on road noise/comfort/grip (and they've now been discontinued so no longer matters!)

Our local F1 tried to add £50 on for something they hadn't even done. Only thanks to my eagle eyed hubby and a lot of arguing that it was taken off the bill. Will never, ever use again. Shame though because I have a feeling the huge tyres on my Qashqai are going to set us back a small mortgage.....

It wasn't my own review, just quoting someone else. I think unless you have a very very specific application (and 99% of us do not, only racers do) you should search for something more balanced, not a tire rated A in one department and E in another. Buy a balanced tire, that scores average in most areas. Extremes are almost never needed or good.

Elise's are fantastic, i should of been more specific.... as in a 205/55 configuration does not suggest any sort of decent performance..

This is my exact experience today with them.
They also tried to convince me to have the tracking done. That's the only point they are nice to me.
