    If you are looking for a tyre that is great in the wet, you are not really going to get better than the Uniroyal Rainsport 2 or 3.

    I find Pirelli PZero excellent on my A3 in the wet and the dry.

    Michelin pilot sport 3s, Costco prices are good, they sometimes have deals on which make them very good value, 225/4018s for the Golf were just about £100 a corner when you took the £50 fuel voucher off, you even get a free nitrogen fill up, what good that does though?

    Michelin Pilot Sports 3's are good. I've got Continental Contact Sport 5P's on this time, and they are great so far. Camskill are the cheapest place to buy new tyres in the UK I have found.

    When you say Costco prices are good, I'm presuming you're a member. If so, are you able to look up likely prices for 235/40 18s? If they're better than Camskill, I might become a member myself.

    Unfortunately no deals on just now, guy couldn't tell me when next one would be, they don't get any notice though, he said it could be next month, could be three months.
    Michelin PS3s £152 inc vat and fitting.
    Bridgestone Potenzas (they must have just started stocking these) £127 inc vat and fitting.

    PS if you ever need a price from them just phone your nearest costco and ask for the tyre section, they don't ask if you are a member.

    PPS camskill £93.50, even adding about £13 a corner for postage and fitting that's the cheapest I've seen Michelin PS3s, can't see them lasting long at that price, tempted to buy 4 and keep them in the hut.

    Got my Costco flyer today,
    Buy 2 or more 17 or 18 tyres, claim £40 fuel card.
    Buy 2 or more 19 and above, claim £60 fuel card.

    Looks like the good old 4 for 3 deals are history.

    Mind you, you can get 12 pot noodles for a fiver and 40 rolls of quilted loo roll for a tenner!

    That's interesting. I've just agreed a deal with Elite Tyres in Rainham (the Essex one, not Kent) for a set of four Dunlop Sport Maxx RT for £552, plus a £40 fuel card. If they come in tomorrow, they should be on in time for a weekend trip down to the New Forest. If not, they'll get fitted on Tuesday.
