    Tyre Prices

    Hi all

    Just changed my front two tyre and bought them from Kwik-Fit and after a discount offered they cost me Ł119.00 each, but today I was in Costco and asked for a cost of the same tyres, they would have charged Ł110.00 fitted and balanced.

    Tyres:

    Mich Pilot Sport 255 24 17 91y

    That's a good price for such a bizarre sized tyre, didn't know Michelin did tyres with a 24 profile. I trust you mean 225/45/17?
    Still too expensive, I just had 2 new Goodyear F1's fitted/balanced on my A4 225/40/18's and they were only Ł112 each for a better tyre in a more expensive size. The 17's should be around Ł95 each.

    Dont you mean 225/45/17?

    Not 255?

    I was offered F1-GSD3 for Ł99 all in for that size, but the same place wanted Ł123 for the Pilot Sport 2.

    Not heard of them before. Not gypsies in a layby by any chance?

    nope a place called bracknell tyre and battery in Bracknell strangely - top place for tyres sometimes a bit of a wait though. I've not found anywhere cheaper or better.

    Re: Tyre Prices

    nope it's next to the rubbish dump on longshot lane (I think) and lets just say you wouldn't think to take your nice shiney car there, but the guys do a great job and seem to get lots of repeat business probably the only car place I would recommend without hesitation, that said you can be in for a wait if you get there at the wrong time.

    Re: Tyre Prices

    I'll echo that sentiment - took mine there in the summer and got fitted out with 4 of Bracknell's finest for Ł85each! Waited about an hour and a half but managed to make good use of the greasy spoon at the side.
