my corsa needs tyres

Postby carlover1221 » Fri Sep 13, 2013 9:52 am

im based in uk and I need new tyres on my corsa. can anyone in uk recommend a site where I can browse tyres and get them cheap, this is due to me in past going to local dealer but I wanna see if I can get them cheaper somewhere else.

Have you tried Blackcircles.com? - I used them last time and you can browse, choose a local fitter, etc.

I like to use www.event-tyres.co.uk myself. They are mobile, so they come out & fit the tyres where you are. But they do need to be booked in advance, you can't just ring up on the day.

Unfortunately they don't cover where I live or work.

Event Tyres don't cover my area.

I've checked tyres247 for my wife's Jazz Si and they only have 2 on supply only, the Conti's were over £90 each and best eco rating was 'E' - I want lower rolling resistance if I can but they are a not-so-common size: 185/55 R16 83H....

Blackcircles have a choice of 8 and do the Conti's for £95 fitted ('E' rated for RR / 'C' for grip) or a value choice for £56. However they have some 'B' rated eco Bridgestones for £97 so may go for those as they have 'B' rating for wet grip and braking performance too.
