    HI all

    After a response today if I can?

    I need to buy some new tyres for the S4, but forgot to check what they are before I left the car at the station! Does anyone know the standard/original size for it?

    I think they're 235/40 Y 18 ?

    Best price so far seems to be through Black Circles, for Goodyear F1's at £135 each corner fitted...


    Thanks for your quick responses...

    Yes that's the stock size.
    Don't order them through Black Circles though, get the number of the local fitter they recommend then call them up directly and they'll give you a better price, will probably save you £10-15 per corner.

    Just spoke direct with the local fitter through Black Circles, and they've discounted the tyre a further £6 each corner (was £126), so a further saving of £24...

    They originally quoted me £135/tyre last week! So overall a £15 discount/corner.

    Must be a huge mark up on tyres...

    Thanks again. Tyres being fitted Saturday...

    There is, especially if you go to the normal high street franchises. The overheads on these places are enormous, plus the franchise fee to cover advertising etc. Find a local back street place that orders the tyres in for you and you can save serious money as well as helping out a small local business.
    Who are these people who go to kwik fit and pay £180 a tyre?
    I was laughingly quoted £187 per tyre by kwik fit last year (F1's 225/40/18)
    Got them for £107 fitted at small back street fitter found via black circles.
    I know who I'd rather give my money to.

    Yes F1's are excellent but if you're running stock 205/50/16's then you should be able to get them for around £65-£70 fitted/balanced.
    Call the local fitter black circles recommend and they'll be cheaper.
