where to buy car tyres?

Found 29th Apr 2017
Hi all
I'm just looking to change all 4 tyres in my car - 205/55 R16 91V. I have seen few tyres from mytyres.co.uk.
Is there anywhere else I could look in for better priced tyres?

Thanks

I used National tyres, they do promotions on their site (link below), got all 4 corners done with Dunlops and an extra 5% off, best price I could find for Sport BluResponse in same size. They also do half price alignment which I had done so I didn't get premature wear on my new tyres. Order the tyres online as in store price is different!

Thanks for your response. That's the Same tyre I'm looking to purchase. Mytyres have it for £51 but national sells it for £61
Also is it advisable to have the tyre alignment checked? I'm going to have manufacturer service in 2-3 months time. So I want to buy the tyres and get it changed when i give car for service.
I've used black circles a few times always found them good

Do mytyres fit? Im sure they only send to your house and then you have to get them fitted? I would recommend getting alignment done as you dont want to wear out your new tyres.

I'm thinking to get the tyres fixed when I'm doing the service. Not anytime earlier. So just want to buy.

Man you won't believe I was looking at the same web page. Cheers
Depends how good your local depot is as well sometimes. Guys in my Local National tyres are decent so don't mind paying a few quid more for decent service.

They are the lower H rated. Not that it should matter as you won't be going that fast. But some insurance companies are funny about fitting lower speed rating tyres.
What about rainsport 3's. It's from a Delti company so same as mytyres.
The last few years I've used tyre-shopper.co.uk , prices include fitting and they tend to use national tyre fitting centres , they tend to offer small discounts if you buy 4 currently 5% off and I've also used printable vouchers off the national tyres website to get half price alignment/balancing when I take the car to get the tyres fitted.
I recently tried mytyres.co.uk to order 4 tyres, but they cancelled the transaction and insisted I pay by paypal, despite my credit card already authorising payment. The attitude of mytyres Customer service was terrible, so instead I used Tyreshopper, who use National Tyre depots for fitting. The price was competitive, the website often has 5% promotional discount for buying 4 tyres and the service from National Tyres was brilliant.

yeah I thought whatever next! they seem to be getting hot on everything nowadays anything to get out of paying a claim. Maybe it's only if you have an accident and send an assessor to assess the car

Just been to my local garage 3 part worn tyres for £75. 2 michellin and one continental.
Was looking online and tyre guru seemed to be cheapest.

​Would never trust a part worn after a friend was in an accident with a blow out 50 miles after fitment, side wall had impact damage which wasn't noticed by the garage. Be careful you pay the price somewhere along the line. You got to wonder why it was taken off in the first place.
F1 autocentre if you have one close by - always done me well.
Goodyear efficient grip performance in that size - got the same on my focus. Decent price and tyre imv

Yes. Just waiting for any discount to pop in. Thanks
I've used protyre for a while as I rate their service very highly, but they aren't the cheapest. Recently I discovered if you order through blackcircles you can use protyre as the agent to fit them. haven't done this myself yet but I will do next time I need tyres.

​When I got mine a couple of months back they were £44 a corner plus I got quidco, the prices fluctuate pretty bad on tyres, luckily my old tyres had enough left on them that I could wait til they were on a deal.

I always get mine from Blackcircles or Camskills depending on which car needs them.

They do a price match so I just compare between the 2.
