Had to get new tyres, 4 Kuhmo KU31s being fitted Monday for a total of £170ish
4 new tyres for under £200? You must be devastated...
They're only 195/50 15"
And I am devastated, I hate when it's tyre change time! Plus I don't even want to keep the car for that much longer anyway
4 new tires will look better in a for sale ad than 4 almost bald tires.
If I could get one tyre for £170 I'd be happy
I would be, the tyres themselves can be had for around £130. Im sure fitting doesnt add another £40. Be glad it cheaper than what I have to pay, I wish I had 15's again and not an odd size 16's
10 / corner to fit em, cheapest I could get at a place I actually trust enough to do it that isn't out of the way.
It does these days. I've tried about 20 local tyre places (which is VERY tedious) and nobody is willing to do it for less than £9 a rim
When getting them replaced, does tracking or anything need doing? Because if not, DIY tbh.
I don't think many people have a balancing machine at home so I think DIY is out of the question.
Cool. I bought a sandwich today - chicken salad.
The answer to that question would be "yes" then, thanks
That's great for you but not many people have a tyre fitting and accurate balancing machine in the shed.
Fastfit do it with balencing for £6 a wheel, at least the local one did. I'm not certain if they are a national chain though.
Im going to stick to my local place then. In reality £10 per corner for fitting, balance and old tyre disposal isnt that bad. In more hilarious news and contrary to my advise my other half just had a pair of random Nexen tyres fitted for £91. 185/55 R14. Rpyt I think you got a bargain
Ah, I see, he is sad because he bought Kuhmo tyres, aka ditch finder pro.
Do you get this upset at 'that time of week' when you have to put some petrol in?
Personally ive never seen people change tyres based on how long they have been on the car.
'coz I needed new tyres pre-MOT
not really, good tyre the KU31.
