    Hi all

    Just changed my front two tyre and bought them from Kwik-Fit and after a discount offered they cost me £119.00 each, but today I was in Costco and asked for a cost of the same tyres, they would have charged £110.00 fitted and balanced.

    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 £112 each for a better tyre in a more expensive size. The 17's should be around £95 each.

    Dont you mean 225/45/17?

    Not 255?

    I was offered F1-GSD3 for £99 all in for that size, but the same place wanted £123 for the Pilot Sport 2.

    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.

    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.

    I'll echo that sentiment - took mine there in the summer and got fitted out with 4 of Bracknell's finest for £85each! Waited about an hour and a half but managed to make good use of the greasy spoon at the side.
