Got my last lot of tyres from camskills and they were far cheaper than any other retailer. When I took them to my local garage to have them fitted and he saw my invoice he was amazed at the price. When he phoned up to get a price, he couldn't even buy them for that price never mind make a profit.

got 4 of these on my motor, 2 of which where only fitted yesterday, I used black circles and an allin price was £141.50, thats tyres/delivery/disposal of old tryres/fitting and balancing

Put that up for comparison for people who want to ring round for fitting costs etc

Well these would be £98.18 delivered and my local garage fitting price is £8 per corner. So thats £114.18. So a saving of £27.32. So that leaves me enough for a Harvester lunch for two and a car wash. Happy days.

Nice to see a website that still supports 800x600 256 colour. Windows 3.1 users will be so happy!

Gav where did you go to get them fitted? I ended up paying at National (got them on a deal, £200 for mid-budget 4 tyres) fitted.. Couldnt find anywhere willing to fit tyres I'd bought online!

reasonable price

One thing about Blackcircles: they will charge you £83 per tyre fully fitted (same size and brand tyre).

These are so good you SAID ITTWICE! SAID IT TWICE!

With all this rain I think I may invest in some of these tryes.

Great price - £8 for fitting - where you live......its more than that for balncing alone down our way.

Costco currently got 20% off michellin when you buy 4 - last time i got these they were about 80 a pop - so with the discount about 65 fully fitted

My wife just used tyreshopper to get a couple of Continentals. The price includes free fitting, valves etc. at a local garage. When my wife took the car to have them fitted, the garage advised she had another tyre that will need changed soon and offered to give her a quote. When my wife showed them how much she paid from tyreshopper they stated that they couldn't get near the price. There is also a 5% code knocking about that gets an additional discount off selected tyres. I'm sure the uniroyals are one of the brands you can use the code with.

These are not the rain sports 2 though are they ?

Still good tyres. Great price.

The only uniroyal on the site to fit my car is £160 a corner.

Yep a terrible website. Amazing company though. Once you get used to the site, basically you navigate using the list of sizes on the left, you can quickly find your tyres.

I've bought the last 3 or 4 sets of tyres from these guys, then paid the local tyre place £10 a corner for fitting and balancing. Saved hundreds.

Once I ordered tyres at ~4pm, sent to my work. I expected a few days delay and was in no rush. They were sittings tacked waiting for me in reception at 8am the next day, from Ireland. Incredible service.

Also a little note, good quality tyres will have two coloured paint dots on them. Usually the yellow one indicates the place that the valve should go for optimum balance and minimal balancing weights. Usually the tyre fitters don't know or bother to do this unless you ask.

Good deal

I have Uniroyal Rainsport 2 tyres and i like them a lot. Not sure what a rainexpert tyre is like though.

Webiste might be basic but i have used camskills numerous times for tyres and they are first class.

Used the above for bike tyres and no one can touch them.

Looked at car tyres and again the prices are on average, £15 cheaper per tyre for the ones I am looking at (Michelin)

I tried tyre shopper last time and they are cheaper than most of the online traders. Tyre fitting can be done at National for free.

Who you go to all depends on the size and type of tyre you want. I was intrigue by the Tyreshopper recommendation, but they were horrendously expensive even compared to Kwik Fit, and even Black Circles were more expensive than KF. Camskills are very cheap and my local ATS will fit them for a tenner a corner.
Try Mytyres, I got my winter tyres from these guys, I think they are based in Germany, but excellent service and no comments about fuel costs to get them fitted:p

Got my tyres from and fitted by Camskill last year. Top Cumbrian company.

costco are doing 20% off 4 tyres may be worth call?

anyone know a cheap place for new car battery?

Shame, I need 205/45R16 V 83 :-/ and they are more expensive than this size.

Don't buy a battery online, buy locally, if it develops a fault, it is a nightmare trying to return it online.

thanks.

Camskill are good for alot of things. The website is a trial to navigate but calling them up & asking is good, customer service is great. Also if they can get a part but don't have it on the site they will chuck it on for you so you can buy it online.

Great for getting parts for rarer cars

I've been driving on Uniroyal Rainexpert for about 3 years after they got a reasonable review on Which?
No problems, good wear/lifetime, average road noise, seem just as good as any mid-range tyre I've had.

I should have added, I ordered all my Uniroyal Rainexperts through the internet as well.
I used Best Buy Tyres - it's about £15 more expensive than camskill, but it does include fitting, disposal, etc at a local garage in the price.

They are lower profile than 55 so should be more expensive.

have been using blackcircles for about 4 yrs now and never had a problem, great prices

Had uniroyals on my mr2 (rear wheel drive) turbo, very good tyres.

I've been comparing online tyre prices and came across this site cheaponlinetyres.com and was wondering if anyone knows anything about this site or had any dealings with them? Their prices for my size tyres are the lowest I've seen but I've never heard of them which is why I'm hesitant. Haven't found any reviews for them either yet

Wish the R15 version of this was as cheap!

This is definitely a bargain price for decent rubber. I bought a pair of Yokohama c drives from Camskill and saved round £40 and I recall buying a set of falken ze10 for a bargain price from the same company.

Tyre Link on Sherwood rise. They are busy at lunch times and Fridays afternoons so give them a bell first. I normally just leave them the car for a few hours and take a wander into Nottingham. It's basically a service that they make little money off so you have to be a little flexible.
