Tyres

Hi
I have been looking round for tyres Has anyone used www.tyretraders.com ??

I was looking at 205/45ZR17 TOYO PROXES T1-R R/F 88W they are 73.50 a corner. Good price me thinks and Free delivery with 2 or more tyres.

Any thoughts??

Remember though you will need to get them fitted and balanced. Some garages charge quite a bit if tyres not bought from them.......

would pay to find out how much that will cost. You will then have true cost per corner

Yeah I had major problems getting tyres fitted that I bought off t'internet for my wife's car - it has rather expensive alloys and most garages were not willing to fit the tyres due to the possibility of damaging the wheels.

Most places would only fit tyres if you buy them from there in the first place.
