Tyrebuy.com - 225/40 R18 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 @ $159ea

560

Great price on one of the best regarded tyres available. This is a pretty popular size (just collected a set of 4 myself) but there are other sizes and other brands available as well which also seem to be very keenly priced.

They are a WA based operation, but shipping to other states seems to be available and reasonably priced too.

Hope this is use to some people.

Edit(1): The ones I picked up are German made and have a manufacture date stamp of '2814' - being the 28th week of 2014.

Edit(2): Have removed the expiry date as the post 'best buy' price still seems to be $159.

    very good price

    I'd be very wary of warranty claims.

      like any tyre i suppose

      •  

        Unless they're tied to the Australian importer (unlikely looking at the website) then the warranty has to come from them or their OS (USA?) supplier. I'd certainly be asking to see the fine print. You can import tyres yourself but you take the risk of OS return if they're out of round, won't balance or fail prematurely.

          no tyre place is going to accept warranty return on a used tyre (believe me, tried twice). If these install and balance properly (99.9% chance they will) then there's nothing different to buying through the importer. Plus at 1/4 the price, you could replace them three times and still be ahead.

        •  

          @Mischaseb: you're wrong in the first comment but yes it's a matter of risk reward. For ten or twenty dollars per tyre per year it's hardly worth the risk in my view.

      I tire of people complaining about deals like this. Don't let it rub you up the wrong way. Let these good deals roll on.

    Only 1 tyre for 195/50 r16. Not cheap though.

    Cheers OP! Was on the hunt for these today. Great tyre for this price. Have them in 235 also which I want. $48 shipped to SA. Jumping on it.

  •  

    Maybe, I could ask 'Bob Jane T-Marts' to match this price.

  •  

    Got a set of these last year through a Goodyear Tyre centre buy 3 get 1 free offer. Cost $630 fitted so this is pretty competitive. Good quality tyres but quite soft compound so wearing relatively quickly (but that's the trade off for good grip!).

    My size is 225/45/17 Aaaarrrrgggghhh!

    The fitting service looks like a scam, $35 per tyre. May as well fit yourself and go in to balance them, align if you want.

    •  

      Good luck fitting an 18 inch tyre yourself unless you have a tyre machine or want to damage your wheels. Ring around a few places and get some prices of getting tyres fitted that you are supplying and not bought off them.

    Just talked to one of my mates which work's with the company and he reckons the might be going cheap as the compound could have been slightly damaged by the harsh Perth summer temps and high diurnal range, especially in a non-air-conditioned storage warehouse. Might be a genuine deal though.

    • +12 votes

      I'm a bit reluctant to go with that reasoning. I mean, tyres should be able to withstand far hotter temps under different kinds of load than what it can get just sitting in a warehouse. I reckon tyre rubber should be able to weather whatever diurnal ranges it gets subjected to.

      •  

        agree with tebbybabes, if they can't even sit in the warehouse under a roof, then how can they be fitted to your car and sit in the sun!?

        it might be a genuine deal, but would be cautious and check the date of expiry or manufacturer of the tyres.
        all tyres have this date on them so you can check how old they are. just can't remember if it's the date of manufacturer or expiry

        and also check out where the tyres are manufactured

        •  

          The ones I got are date stamped '2814', which I understand to mean manufactured in the 28th week of 2014.

      So… What about tyres fitted to Perth cars then?

    • +1 vote

      these are cheap because they're probably parallel imports. Nothing about damage

      •  

        They are not parallel imports are the stickers are still on the tyres from Goodyear Australia.

    •  

      Slightly damaged compound? Your friend sir is an idiot. All tyres heat up even in the Eastern States to high temperatures while driving. Having them sit in a warehouse does not make a difference.

  •  

    Ah… that feeling when you just bought a set of something worse that actually cost the same only last month. I did get 245s which they don't have so there's at least that little silver lining… However I could have gone 235s on these and be very very happy.

    Oh well… you can't get ALL the bargains!

  •  

    Set of 4 = 636
    Delivery to "fitting" = $12
    Fitting 4*35 = 140

    Total - $788

    Tempe Tyres = $876

    So around 10% off

          Can you tell the story? I was planning to visit them soon (even tho i live half an hour away) because a lot of people swear by them

        •  

          @Azn310:

          (Typing on phone)
          Was over a year ago.
          but I ordered a new set of tyres and rims and they said they would be in next day.

          Arrive there next day and wait around as their delivery truck was late. Waited for 4 hours (nojoke) and then told the truck is missing and a new delivery coming in 2 days.

          Come back 2 days later and they put the car up and I wait and then I get told they have realized they ordered the wrong ones..

          Come back 2 days later again to get them fitted and they once again got the rim width wrong as turns out it didn't come in that size.. wanted 9.5rear and 9" front.. could only get 9".

          Anyways just got them to put on what they had got given a $50 discount after having a go at the managed and vowed to never ever go there again in my life

        •  

          @letthiswork1: thank you for the effort of typing on your phone. Sorry to hear you had such a terrible experience :( I plan to visit for wheel balancing and alignment, total only $70 which i find is reasonable as they do front end thrust alignment, you reckon it will be ok or another disaster awaiting me? Like what could go wrong really apart from my car exploding lol

        •  

          @Azn310: Been there heaps of times, never had any issues. They are pretty cheap and I've always bought basic tyres (Kumhos) which are always in stock and they fit them and do the alignment pretty quickly (30-45min). Mind you it's nothing exotic, good enough is good enough for me with tyres. Ask enough people and you are always going to find someone with a complaint unfortunately, it was pretty poor form for the above dude though, but it sounds like he may have actually asked them for something that doesn't exist (when he mentioned 'they don't come in that size') I guess they assumed that he knew, I know I can be pretty convincing myself and sound like I know what I'm talking about when I go into a shop but ultimately they are the experts and should know.

        •  

          @Jackson: thanks man, yeah there are always 2 sides to a coin.. In letthiswork case it seems like a bit of a miscommunication, they should have double confirm the size he wanted if it is rare instead of making him drive back and forth for nothing..

          Robb6014 also have issues with tempe tyres, and he has 10+ votes, so that does say something..

  •  

    The reason why the F1s are so cheap is because they are made in Thailand/China. I have used the German made one previously before buying a set of the Asian made version and there is a big difference in quality.

    There's a reason why these are so cheap.

    I prefer to stick to German or Japanese made tyres especially if they are sticking to the road the majority of the time.

      I've had the same experience with Bridgestone tyres (Japanese units are superior to Thai versions.) Thanks for the heads up!

      They have 'Made in Germany' stamped on them. Those sneaky Asians! :p

      If you have 225/50R17 size, https://tyrebuy.com/store/225-50-17/Pirelli/cinturato-p1 Price $169 should be ok. The size of your tyres should be printed on the sidewalls. Best check first incase your wheels are non-standard sizing.

    Thinking of buying x4 of these for my WRX: https://tyrebuy.com/store/215-45-17/Goodyear/

    Anyone have any thoughts? Good price? I have only owned it for a few months and have only just needed to look into replacing the tyres.

    •  

      i had the same on my wrx, they can be a bit noisy as they wear but certainly good value for the price. I had mine for about 200,000kms and found the non directional tyres to be less noisy than the directional ones. HTH

    •  

      Lol at being negged for this.

    •  

      Looks like a good price for those tyres but I haven't used them before.

      I bought Kumho KU39's in the same size (215/45R17) but found them to be too noisy, after about 1000km I took them off and bought new wheels (Enkei RPF1 17x9) and bought Hankook RS-3's (245/40R17) and they are great. A lot less noise than the KU39's.

      Don't forget when you buy online you should add postage plus about $20 per tyre (some places quoted me as high as $35 each if I didn't buy the tyres from them) for fitting, often its cheaper to go into a tyre shop and tell them what you can get for how much and haggle with them. I got my RS-3's including fitting cheaper than I could buy the tyres alone for online excluding fitting and postage.

      Also your link says 215/45R17 but the tyres in your link shows 225/40R18.

    dammit 1 inch too small!!

    ……waits for the 'thats what she said' comments

  •  

    loled at their marketing blurb. Polyamide is just another word for nylon, but the general consumer wouldn't be pleased to hear their tyres are corded with the same material as shirt! Don't worry I know its hella strong.

  •  

    Good price and good tyre. The sidewall on them is quite soft though - my wife destroyed one by gutter rashing it once (I cried at the state of the alloy) and at short notice I had to pay full price from Goodyear (400+ years ago). Am on my second set now they only last about 25000kms.
