Passenger wheel has a small bulge in the sidewall, looks like classic pothole again!, I think the goodyears are rubbish so am thinking of going for the falkens, is it safe to drive or shall I wait and only drive it to the tyre place, its like a small bubble in the sidewall about 2cm long and about 5mm out

Thats what im thinking, im gutted tho as these F1s have only done 5k and this is the third one I have had with a puncture in 18 months of having an ST, Guildford Tyres can do the Hankook V12 EVO for a good price and I could get it done tomoz without having to wait for camskill, anyone got any opinions on these tyres

I dont think its a problem with the tyres, in my opinion its a combination of the low tyre sidewall and something to do with the design or material of the alloys which is why they blister. I have a rear wheel with a ding in from a pothole done by who ever had the car before me, looks like he knackered the tyre at the same time as it is much newer than the other three. So I dont think changing to Falkens is going to stop you getting blisters in your tyres, you just have to drive round the pot holes...

Which version of the F1 was it you were running?

This happened to my Falken 452's as well and I only noticed it by chance, as it was on the inside of the tyre. Fortunate really, as I was just about to drive to Switzerland and back! Potholes and low profile tyres just don't mix!
