    I need new tyres......

    After nearly crashing the car twice yesterday, I have decided that Dunlop SP9000's are cr@p!!

    So, i am after a pair of Toyo Proxes T1-R 205/50 R16 W rated.

    So far, I have tried the following places.....

    www.blackcircles.co.uk £189.84 including delivery, fitting etc.

    www.mytyres.co.uk £199.20 including delivery, fitting etc.

    www.camskill.co.uk £174.00 including delivery, fitting etc.

    www.etyres.co.uk £197.80 including delivery, fitting etc.

    www.tyretraders.com £192.00 including delivery, fitting etc.

    www.roadtyres.com £206.40 including delivery, fitting etc.

    www.elitedirect.com £166.38 fitted at their workshop, 12 miles away. Or £176.74 if I get them delivered and fitted.


    Any other websites to check?

    The gutting thing is that I paid £170 for these tyres fitted from Blackcircles back in September, now they are nearly £20 more expensive!!

    All those prices are far too expensive.

    Got two Bridgestone RE720 for £150 fitted. Could have spent a fiver more and got Michelins or Goodyear F1s.

    My fitter is a Hi-Q centre, which I believe you get over there too. Never been able to beat their prices, and hey do a top job of the fitting too.

    If you order on line, you have the ability to use a promotional code for 10% discount. Just google "Black circles promotional code" and you should find a few. With a 10% discount these will be £170-ish.

    If you cant find a code, PM me

    I just had this dilema..and i found out that the toya proxies are very poor in wet/snow....and tis the season so i'd stay well clear. I've just picked up 4 bf goodrich from euromaster (tyre and mot place in nottingham). Paid £350 as they were on special offer. Had them on for a month and they have amazing grip on dry and wet. I'd go for these mate. ...oh yea..and they got that cool arrow tred.
