147 2.0 TS - Help on tyre choice!!

Hi guys

Fairly new on here, hope you can help out ASAP. I've had a blow out on not one, but two tyres today, what are the chances of that? My tracking is way out, unbalanced, and all 4 tyres are odd (I've become a little complacent in getting it all sorted).

MY QUESTION: What tyres should I be getting tomorrow, I'm buying 4 new low profiles (17"s) - any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Goodyear F1's
Maxxis - MA-Z1 Victra - these are the same sort of tread - but better life, good level's of grip and stopping etc...

Go get Goodyear Excellences, - they are brill, I have them and they have made such a difference to the car, rides better, handles way better and they are much quieter, I got mine from UK tyres online: Blackcircles.co.uk discount tyre specialist I was amazed at their price and the service from them! p.s I had the stock Firestones on the front!
