Just checked mine Eagle F1'S all need replacing infamous inner edge wear look like slicks plenty across the rest of the tread though

Having suspension + brakes done next week so cant stretch to eagles again really how are Falken FK452's or Kuhmo KU31's ?

The falkens are pretty much as good as the F1's grip wise IMO.

I havent tried the kumho's though.
