    Ok, it looks like the rubber on the rear of my poop mobile has finally gone, so I am looking at buying 2 new rears.

    So being the div that I am, I'm looking at getting the same make and model that I am running on the front that also funnily enough match what is currently running on the rear.

    Anyway, I went to the place I got the front two from (black circles) and the cost for the same tyres and fitting has gone up by £40. So instead of it costing £153, it looks like it is going to cost £193.

    Any reason why tyres go up £20 a year? lol

    Ah well, I shall just have to go with Tyre shopper and resort to the 4% cash back with quidco.

    But they are the same tyre as the ones I bought last time... even the same model number. Would they change the compound and not change the model?

    Damn it :( I wish I wasn't such a tight git! lol

    Is it good practice to run the same tyres on all 4 corners?
