    Danny's about right. I got a pair of Bridgestone RE720 fitted for £150 all in. That's the usual 205/50-16

    E-tyres are taking the piss with their prices - they're looking £96.90 fitted for the same tyre I got for £75 fitted.

    I paid £320 for 4xMichelin Pilots(205/50x16) and was fitted/tracked/balanced.

    That was on a buy 3 get 4th free deal though.

    I think most 'good' tyres are between £80-£120, but is all dependent on personal preference. I have not been a member here long, but have seen loads of discussion about tyres.

    The tyre discussion is as old as me and you put together. Someone will swear by a tyre, and someone else hates the same tyre.

    £320 for a set of Pilots is pretty good - I assume they're the Exalto 2 jobs?
