Phone them for a quote.

Nitrogen filled ! , never heard of that .What's the advantages ?

Can you not get them Helium filled making them lighter on the road :-)

That would be a laugh if you had a puncture in Town

I did get a quote on some tyres from Costco awhile ago and they were actually cheaper than everywhere else I tried by some margin in fairness..

Hot from me


p.s to all the idiots who moan about Costco being business only - check the website - no its not and why would they have seperate addtional opening hours for business customers if it was only for business???
#7
Remember to add the membership cost
#8
I actually found [url]www.etyres.co.uk[/url] cheaper, and they will fit them at you home, no harm in getting another quote!!
#9
I joined Costco last year and really like it but to be honest I have found their tyres expensive even on offer. Perhaps its just my tyre size, but even kwikfit could offer a better price than costco last time I looked

Are you sure that was for everything? Like new valves, balancing and getting rid of the old tyres. Some companies will for get to tell you about the “extras” in their pricing.
I’m not saying Costco are always the cheapest but they are competitive and they only use Michelin tyres

about same as online (tyreshopper/kwikfit)....
but ive given up on michelin....mega overpriced
4 X 205/50zr17 for peug 307xsi were about £700...i mean, come on...its a family hatch not a sports car!!
bought 4 Hankook's for about £340!!
hankook's are fine so far unlike any cheaper make - audi use them oem i hear - used them for about 8000 miles...better than 2 pirelli p6000 and about as good as the 2 continental's had on before (except they dont seem to be wearing down as quickly)

kwikfit online are about same price as tyreshopper (who use national) and costco

I bought four tyres last year using this deal and have been very pleased with the price and performance. I will definitely get more when the time comes. Don't scrimp on tyres your life may depend on them.

Bigger molecules, hold pressure longer.

Bigger molecules than what? Bigger than helium certainly, but not sure what else you were comparing to?
#17
Do Costco still allow you to buy the tyres now and bring them back some time in the future to be fitted? If so, does anyone know if there's any time limit?

Need some new front tyres probably in a few months, but the rears are gonna last for probably a year!

Can I buy them all now and take back as and when to get fitted?

Perhaps he means Air, being the traditional medium of filling tyres. Although as Air is already 78% Nitrogen and around 21% Oxygen (amongst other things) I assume he's specifically referring to the oxygen part. He is right though, Nitrogen filled tyres do maintain more constant pressures (less sensitive to temp variations and less leakage) which can ultimately save fuel and tread. If Costco will top up the Nitrogen for free then it's a no brainer, Nitrogen wins everytime. If they charge for tops ups (as lots of other places do) then it's a more difficult choice. :thumbsup:

Great deal.

Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 215/45/17 W @ £129.23 ea. fully fitted

:thumbsup:
#20
Going for this, but how does it work. Got an advisory on my MOT in February and have been waiting ever since. Do you just turn up and wait or do you book an appointment in advance.

Looked in the tyre area last time i was there and 4/5 people ahead of me so i did not bother to queue up, stop and ask.

Just turn up.

What I do is drop car off and go shopping/have lunch. :thumbsup:

Take a guess - what do you normally fill your tyres with, straw; rocks?

Dubious to say the least, but if it makes people that don't understand otherwise feel better...

You have an alternative explanation? Why then do motorsport teams use nitrogen?

Look here:

and here:

http://www.uniflate.com/benefits-of-nitrogen-tyre-inflation

No, I wouldn't bother either but don't knock the comments out of ignorance.
#26
It is out of the opposite of ignorance, it is through having an understanding of physical chemistry.

It is irrelevant whether motorsport teams (or aeroplanes) use nitrogen in their tyres, we are talking about normal road vehicles, it is a different type of use. It is also irrelevant what companies advertising the product have to say, they are trying to sell a product.

If you provide me with a list of what you think are the benefits, I will explain the flaw (or limitation) in each provided benefit or concede to any that are correct.

I said I wouldn't bother doing it, but my stated reason for the practice is accurate.

I think we're agreeing even if it didn't seem like it!

Anyway, back on topic, Michelin tyres are generally good but overpriced and filling them with nitrogen doesn't change that.

I have no desire to enter a discussion on the likes of Fick's law on a shopping forum. But broadly speaking Nitrogen filled tyres are less sensitive to temp variations and suffer less leakage (yes I know, but try talking about permeation and see how long it takes for people to glase over), and as far as I'm aware that is fact.

The only thing that could be considered dubious is whether that has any actual benefit in real life on your car, and like I said if top ups are free it certainly can't hurt and if it's not, well, then you'll just have to get out your HPC and start crunching numbers. :thumbsup:
#29
Really miffed about this as just paid full price a few weeks ago for 4 tyres. If only I'd known then what I know now. Doh!!
#30
Less sensitive to temperature variations? Based on what, have you looked at the tiny difference between N2 specific heat and air specific heat?

This isn't really an example of Fick's law, simply because only tiny amounts exit via concentration diffusion, the majority will be caused by the pressure gradient through the rim interface and the valve. If it was an example of Ficks, the opposite of what you are suggesting would happen (high N2 conc would move out to atmosphere...)

Regardless, if N2 was a fantastic gas which escape at x/100 the rate or air, then after a short period of time, the gas content of your tyre would be 100% N2 anyway, alas it's not.

People can waste their money if they want...

I said "the likes of Fick's law" i.e. more than just Fick's law applies, but like I said it's a shopping forum and I have no desire to get into that kind of discussion on here. I also said, I wouldn't pay for it.....at least not without running the numbers first.....but if it's free it's not going to hurt now is it?
