Halford -v- Asda Tyres

18
Found 2nd Apr 2015
I went to Halford for my MOT (£30 online) today as I needed it done quickly. The only advisory was tyres were nearing legal limit and to replace them would cost me £242.31 for 3 tyres (probably mid range), Disposal of tyres £6, new valve £5.97 and wheel balancing £20.97. Thinking its a bit steep I came home and after checking the internet went with Asdatyres and premium tyres at same Halfords store including all above come in at £170.52!!!!!!!!!!! Almost £100 cheaper for the same job at the same place via the Asdatyres website. Amazing saving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry if its confusing, the price was for replacement of 3 tyres. I went for a premium one and don't like the budget ones. Tyre size is 185/65/R15. Continental, Eco Contact 5, 70 db, B, B ratings. If anyone can help with a better deal I would really be grateful, I cant fit them as would never have the strength so would have to include fitting and wheel balancing etc.

It's not hard to fit your own. I used to do my bike ones all the time. All you need is a tablespoon to lever them on. Bob's your uncle.
