Lightbulb Replacement Goodyear F1s

Has anyone tried to buy OEM tires yet? I bought two from Discount Tire (one right, and one left) right after I took delivery from the dealer almost six months ago. I want to buy two more, but they seem to be pretty scarce on most tire dealers on the internet. Even Discount Tire isn't listing any in stock now. Of course, Goodyear themselves have them at pure MSRP, which is waaay over what Discount Tire charged me.

Anyone know of another source for our tires? I want to stay with the factory Goodyear F1 Supercar G2 tires as long as I can.

It makes me wonder if the factory is buying most of Goodyear's output leaving the replacement market dry... I've been a Deputy Sheriff for a long time and years ago we couldn't get Goodyear Eagle RSAs in quantity because they said that the Ford factory was buying a lot to place OEM on new Crown Vics (CVPI.)

Thanks!

Tara

Tirerack.com doesn't list the 1LE package but has the ZL1 tires. $339 for a front tire that would work on the 1LE. I know the tires are the same size all the way around but do the front tires have a different tread pattern than the rear?

The 1LE tires are the same all around as the front ZL1 tires (left and right side specific of course). So you could just select 2 ZL1 front rights and 2 ZL1 front lefts for a complete 1LE set.

You could also try your Chevy dealer. My dealer has decent pricing on tires and they will price match any local prices.

I'll check with the Chevy dealer again. I tried 6 months ago and their price wasn't competitive and they wouldn't price match. I know that Tirerack lists the tires, but does anyone know how much they charge to ship them? When I bought my first two, Discount beat Tirerack's price without even factoring in the shipping charges (if any.)

May have just been a poor employee at the parts dept, but he couldn't understand that I just wanted to buy two loose tires. He kept saying that I had to go through the service writer to get a final price. I think I'll not use Autonation(Champion) Chevrolet again.

Thanks for your input to my query!

Tara

Tirerack has the shipping calculator on their order page.

Tires are currently listed @ $339.00 ea. Shipping to me was $39 for the pair.

Personally, I bought an extra set of bright silver RS wheels and tires from another member. I only intend to use one of the set as a spare when I travel interstate.

If you include mounting/balance it's an easy $400 for the front and $500 for the rear for sake of rounding.

I've had to order 1 each front and rear. They ship from Shreveport LA and one of the tires I bought was at a Chevy dealer in Shreveport and they still had to order it in the next day.

Anyone know a good winter tire package for the 1LE? I would also like to try and find a package that comes with black rims. I want to keep my car blacked out. :P

I bought mine from TireRack.com. After much agonizing, I settled on an all around 10" wide set of 20" wheels and 275/35ZR20 Continental Extreme DWS tires ( All weather ). Those tires work well for my climate, hold the road in adverse conditions, have good tread wear, and have a good road hazard warranty.

I almost went with the 11" rear wheels and a 315 setup (the front tire size will be different for that setup, please consult with one of their salespeople). I've read that some of the 1LE owners have liked that setup.

Another option is to buy a set of 20" SS wheels from someone and put your winter tires on those.

[Edit] If you are researching smaller than 20" wheels, here are a couple threads I found ( I am not offering advice, only links): http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=287036
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...r+skate+brakes

I hope this helps!

Any idea where? I'd like to read that. I too will need winter tires later in the year!

So that's for the front?

They would include the install for free and 20 bucks for balancing so this may be the best deal. Then there would be tax and it looks like we're going to pay that for internet transactions now anyway so what the heck. 360 installed.

Yeah hell even if you do find a better price online its going to probably cost you more in the long run anyway due to shipping and then paying someone else to mount and balance.

That's interesting because I couldn't find them on the Walmart/Sam's website. Did you call or walk-in for the info?

Thanks!

Yup... that's exactly what I had to do. I've replaced both right side tires due to sidewall nails and such and had no choice but to order as no one stocks them.

Heard nothing but great things about these bad boys. That's why I am getting them. Also TireRack has Toyo R888s in that size.
