Posted 8th Oct
I'm looking as per title but can't seem to find any decent deals on Premium brands in my size.

I want a fully fitted price below £25 per tyre

Failing that, as cheap as possible

Anyone seen owt please?

I know this may be a bit of a faff, but if you open an e-savings account with the Habib Bank Zurich, they will send you a 40% discount code for 205/40 ZR17 tyres along with their welcome pack. Hope this helps.

It's a local mechanic I use - I have no idea how he stays in business, always does me a good deal. I always struggle to find a better price anywhere else

You're not in or near Manchester are you?

I always get mine from Demon Tweaks on Ebay. 225/40/R18. Paid £61 each.

It's the 205 size, seems to be problematical, or at least more expensive, when linked to the 40 profile size.

Seen some Kumho and Avons for about £55-£60 on Blackcircles, Good Year about £80 each. Probably about £10 corner fitting to add

Just seen they are W not Z

I think W is ok?

'WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN R AND ZR TYRES ?ZR basically means the tyre is adapted for speeds above 149 mph. ZR tyres includes the speed ratings V(149mph), W(168mph) and Y(186mph).

Before 1990, the manufacturers used "ZR" to mean high performance tyres before the ratings got refined with W, Y…

Nowadays, the marking ZR is not relevant anymore but it is still used in the catalogues of manufacturers and tyre retailers.
Look for the speed ratings V,W,Y to find the modern equivalent to ZR tyres and not for the marking ZR.
What really matters is the speed rating (V,W or Y).'
Looking at these from Asda. Any thoughts?

Have you checked for another size that’ll retain the rolling circumference while fitting the rims? Maybe a 215/35?

The 205 is the width, right? Think it has to be 205 as it's lowered slightly and will catch the wheel arch I think.

I've found some Avons for about 65 each fitted

This'll do. Thanks everyone

FWIW, I've always gone for Continentals in this size (on my front tyres, rears are slightly wider) and the price you had above was fair. I've tried to cut my expenditure recently and I went for Avons last time, when I had them fitted I asked the fitter his thoughts and he said they were good tyres. I've been very happy with them and they're a good price - I'd go for them again in future. Looks like you got a good price to boot.

Cheers mate, yes I'm happy. I was scared to read to the end of the comment when you mentioned Avons

Is the discount code emailed or a letter. Not sure if I’d have any faith if they only email it.

They did email it through the same day, and I was a little worried when I had not received any correspondence through the post after 12 days. I then opened a cupboard in one of my kitchens, and found it in a welcome pack that my hubby had put there last week.
So the welcome pack had gone walkies.
