My girlfriend was getting a new tyre from kwik fit when I asked a quote for mine (not yet had to by any). The chap did the mechanics breathing in when I mentioned Michelin Pilot Sports and he said this wont be cheap. The on screen price quoted for the fronts (224/45/17) was £174 and the rears (245/40/17) £230. He said (when the boss was not looking) to go online, get a quote for the exact same tyre, from exactly the same place just simply booked and paid for online.
I didnt think there would be much difference but checked and the fronts are quoted at £103.36 and rears £142.80 plus valve and balancing.. I know where I will be going when I need one!
** I notice many people have rated and commented regarding Kwik Fit as a company due to personal experiences but please rate the deal offered. (is it a hot deal or not?) **
