Yes, very good!
OK, not actually 43.80 a tyre but still 32.20; hope you didn't have to drive too far to get them fitted.

I find one of the convenient things about ETyres is that they come to you, so you can get on with other things whilst they do the work!

We can't all live in Bracknell either

You're welcome.

Sorry I compared the wrong tyre... looks like I got a quote for 205x55 instead of 205x50... anyway I was still pleased at the saving. And it's about 2 miles from where I'm working at the moment.

The point I was making is not to ignore your local / independent supplier when looking at tyre prices. 128 pays for a lot of "getting along with other things".

They aren't all as good - our local Humphries, who used to do great deals and were happy to match Micheldever in their cheap days sucked air through their teeth and said "Oooh, that's an unusual size, it'll be expensive" It's on a Mondeo FFS!

No doubt I'll have more fun and games when it's time to replace the 255x35Z18 Pilot Sports on the back of the Beemer! Would you like me to let you know how I get on, or are you happy to hand over all of your cash to E-Tyres?

I just ordered a pair of tyres for the Beeza, including delivery for two Michelins 53.95!
