Tyre Supplier?

A couple of weeks back somebody slashed one of my tyres while my car was parked up and i had to get it replaced. I payed £136 for a 225/40 ZR18 Pirelli Rosso P Zero. Thing is i need another one and was wondering if any of you could suggest a cheaper supplier? Also as i've only had my Subaru 6 months i'm still a bit of a newbie with it and was wondering if those tyres are considered good.

Thanks a lot Highlander, you saved me £30. I'll get you a beer if we ever meet mate! That's paid for about half a tank of fuel for the track day too

Who did you go for ?

Got my tyres already a few times from www.mytyres.net

Always been pleased. Although I had to chase them last time for delivery. The courrier (GLS) had the tyres since two days but couldn't be bothered delivering them as his driver never really got a route that week that would run past my house (in the UK that was). :evil:

If you can get a better price, let them know and they will match it!!!

Good service from Leigh Tyres, I recommend them. 8)
