No, it doesn't work out at £31 a tyre, if u make use of the voucher. It's still ~£41 a tyre, you just get a £20 argos voucher. ~£82 is still coming out of your bank. Fooling yourself into believing that it is cheaper because of the voucher is silly.
Since when have Firestone been a budget brand ?

I steer away from budget tyres, but stuff like this is fine. I don't have a sports car and I don't drive like a muppet, I've never had issues stopping. I think many people are sucked in by bias studies and good marketing, it's a bit like getting an iPhone 7 when a decent £150 device will do the same thing. If people want to spend £140 for a "premium" tyre, good for them, but for me, these would be fine

Silly? I shop at Argos now and then, how would it be silly if I spend the voucher at Argos?
I agree it doesn't work out at £31 a tyre but it can effectively work out at that for some people, and that's what is being claimed.

There are some good budget tyres about these days, unlike years ago. I have started using budget tyres and find them to be pretty good.
Aren't Firestone owned by Bridgestone?

I always get the best I can afford when it comes to tyres; they're all that's between you and the road...

Have some heat OP.

This is a the favourite trick of dodgy tyre dealerships, and so many people seem to be suckered in by it. Just because a premium tyre brand company also own a brand that make cheap tyres, it doesn't mean the cheap tyres are just as good.

It's also a fallacy that crappy teflon tyres are fine as long as you don't have a performance car, or because you don't hoon around. The reduced stopping distance that good tyres provide only makes a difference when you really need it in an emergency avoidance/braking maneuver.

Exactly, the point being that EXPENSIVE doesn't always equal BEST. Brands like Pirelli will spend a fortune on F1, someone has to pick that bill up. Its like anything, how much do you think "top brand" perfume actually costs to make? Its not like pharmaceuticals, there's little R&D, but that A-Celeb endorsement and weird/confusing adverts don't come cheap!!

Don't be sucked in by marketing, due to their nature, tyres will undoubtedly have to meet a standard, some may last longer, some may be softer and grip better, but when all is said and done, they will all wear out. Would I put some budget £30 tyres on my car.... probably not, but likewise, I wont be putting £140 tyres on just because they are used on race cars

You're saying that Firestone are crap? really?? There is a more than adequate middle ground between top end and bottom end, but hey, if you want to get ripped off on the premise that an expensive tyre is always better, go for it! I'm sure the money men will award the marketing team a nice little bonus for fooling another poor sheep

Nonsense.
This is like saying it's not cheaper if you get cashback. The origin amount still comes out of your bank, yes obviously, but you get money back afterwards. In this case you just have to spend it at Argos. Many people shop at Argos, or have things they need that Argos sell, that they'd normally buy elsewhere.

Is it just the 195/65/15H that are this price? I had a quick look online and didn't see where they are listed
damn , the 185 's are £96 pair
Why don't they just reduce all the range as these are the poor quality tyres. Maybe just a load of tyres sizes, but I would not mind a cheap tyre as I think if they caused death ,they would be banned.

​I drive hard whenever I have an open road (50% of the time). However, I only have a 140bhp car so there is not massive amounts of power being transferred to my front tyres. It's probably the speed at which I take corners. If I had a more powerful car I'd probably only get 2k miles out of tyres. Some people claim they can get 10-15k out of their fronts from driving hard? Either they're lying or their idea of driving hard is very different from mine. PS. Tyres are kept at correct PSI, checked every 2 weeks. Tracking is fine.
Only a 140bhp car? Still powerful enough to wreck your tyres in 2k miles by the sounds of your dreadful driving. I drive hard and still get 15k at least from mine
Wife fitted these recently to get my car through MOT taking off the Bridgestone Potenza that were just above the wear markers.
The car is quite frankly dangerous now and is slipping all over the road although I do drive briskly. Won't be buying again, shocking difference in tyre performance.

These are a decent enough tyre for the money, but your thoughts about dangerous tyres are wrong.

I took a sidewall nail and needed a replaceable tyre RIGHT NOW a few years ago, all they had were some no-name brand at £35 per corner. I had both replaced as having one new, plus one fairly worn is a no no.

From the moment I drove out of the fitting centre they didnt feel right, pulling out of the first junction they spun up (on an ancient people carrier with 250K on the clock); on the next junction - a steep uphill, off camber, I could barely get the car to move, the grip was so low; and then it rained - even in a 30MPH zone I could barely keep the car on the road (locked up and slid into the kerb under light braking)

Bearing in mine this was a route I drove EVERY day, the car was so out of control I drove back to the garage at just above walking speed and got them to courier-in a set of better tyres from another dealer.

Yes, firestone are crap. With so many good tyre makers out their why even risk it?
I bought some chinese budget tyres last year for the yaris, didnt keep an eye on them as they were new. Failed MOT due to worn tyres this year, only done 3000 miles...

My advice keep away from chinese budget tyres!
