Price has dropped further to £31.12 now - also for 25 mm tyres - albeit it's a case of place the order, ahead of stock coming back in.
I use 28 Duranos over winter and 25 GP5000s over summer. The contis feel much better.. Not just for rolling but the rubber is also softer and more comfortable to ride.
No worries, I wasn't sure if you'd already have known the rim width before picking up the tyres. I think I'm going to go for something a bit more durable and hard wearing - I read a few loooong threads on reddit from people who've ran these and I don't think they're for me.
Yeah, sorry, I'm only going by eye and don't think i'd be able to accurately measure without a caliper, probably best to go with what The_Holt subsequently said.
I purchased this 12v Xiaomi one from the EU, 70 Mai TP01 inflator last year after researching alot. (not from this seller) I'v had a few rings and other models over the past 15 years and this one is far superior to anything iv owned before, much quicker and virtually silent. It has air flow 32litres/min much higher than most, an aluminium cylinder which claims to give hours of continuos flow without overheating. Used it loads and im really impressed by it, another winner by one of Xiaomi's eco brands.
Or a donkey
Or a goat.
I personally prefer this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ring-RTC6000-Compressor-Cordless-Inflator/dp/B07MVWDSW8 Slightly more, includes the battery and is automatic and less bulky so you can leave it in the car. Can also be charged in the car.
I just used the link plus they are doing an extra 10% off if you book certain fitting centres
How did your get that discount?
Thanks OP, got a tyre fitted to my Focus today using this offer for less than £38. It also looks like TCB has tracked. (y) Cheers Madcow
Gotta agree, got them on the front of my Scirocco when had no MPS4's in my size in stock, awful, awful tyre.....my new troc comes with Bridgestone eco tyres, they're awful tooI did put a set of Jinyu winter tyres on my Impreza and couldn't believe how good they where.....kept my MPS4's for the British summer, about 3 days lol
Bumping this thread. My car needs 255's on the back and 225's on the front. What would the effects be if i used 225's on the back as well as the front?
I think this deal is still live at costco? Anyone know if you can forgo the fitting and just take them away?
4S always available 19" and above. This 18" us new. Even when I first gave Jonathan from Tyre Reviews the heads up, he said he struggled to find this size for his next video and begged Michelin to then provide him with 10 of them.
4 x 235/35/19 at Kwik Fit is £489. Best I’ve found
Didn’t charge for the retest sorry . I didn’t get the job done at NT as my mate is a mechanic sure it was about £100 for the job .. couldn’t swear to it though it was ages ago .
No charge fot the test?... how much was the track rod end job?
I’ve taken 2 cars over 10 times ,over the years to Nat tyres with this £27 deal . Only failed one car for a track rod end , which I had fixed elsewhere and they didn’t charge for the test. So before the urban myths abound and everyone who has never even been to Nat Tyres pipes up with horror stories , this is my experience of Nat tyres.
Your next step if still can be done is to write them another email and refused the area manager's offer and threaten to report them to trading standards or court action to get your full refund. I would take the online court route, pay £25 online and add compensation on top for your time. When they received this letter they will very quickly settle it.
I did my friend and the area manager called me back and said he will knock off £10 from the full price if I rebook. Shambles!
Look mate I would complain to the head office and get a refund back and compensate u for wasted time for their incompetence.
It’s a nationwide company. Their reputation is more important to them than money . Go back to them and tell them to take your car for a test drive . They wud have to fix it for reputation sake.
SHOCKING SERVICE had my booking today and it’s came out worse, fixed to the right and they didn’t centre the wheel before aligning. Avoid!!
Any tube that is 700 x 28 will be fine. Most inner tubes have a range, for exams 25-32 so that would cover the size 28 wheels. These look good value from wiggle https://www.wiggle.co.uk/continental-tour-28-all-tube?lang=en&curr=GBP&dest=1&sku=5360592428&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=&utm_medium=base&gclid=CjwKCAjw-e2EBhAhEiwAJI5jg5c9G4YD5VyBPw0uGTb-qy1uvBZSWHikzUAEuKjE90a-4I6dc3qSYhoCt2AQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
While I'm waiting on a deal for some 28's I've been looking at some alternatives. Has anyone had any experience with Specialised Turbo Pro's or Vittoria rubino Pro g+?
Which of their inner tubes should I buy to go with it? There are many 700s, but each has a range of c values and then mm?? How to decide? Thanks
I was a little worried about some mixed reviews especially on punctures but seem good to me. Prob did 100 miles so far on them. According to conti they are more puncture resistant how true that is not sure. Definitely smooth and comfortable, haven’t cycled in the wet though. They were difficult to fit though! Overall very happy so far.
Yep. Had a nail puncture, use this to get me a short distance to my indy tyre guy, got it repaired. Drove it for a year or so before the tyre were changed. When I checked the inside, there was nothing as it's water based. It's good to a can of this in the car.
Make sure it goes up to your size tyre, but otherwise this is an essential thing to have in your car boot
as the 500 is £9! worth a shot with 2x400 ordered. (y)
now thats an idea. i cant see why you cant so long as you use them in quick succession and dont over fill the tyre
Could I use 2 for 19

Very very very good tyres. But then uniroyal rainsport are comparable on the wet....
Got 2 tyres fitted for £145 (excl TCB) Nice deal
Thank you so much! Great find Getting 4x 17" XLs fitted at home for £258 (with quidco cashback)
So I pressed the link. Put in my vehicle registration then the size of my tyres (235/60/18 for xc90)... to be told those tyres do not fit my car (lol) I don't want to go with a company that wants to fit different size tyres on them
Yeah you’re right, good reviews and price at ASDA. I’ll keep them in mind, thanks (y)
Bit late. But anyhow I heard the kormorans where very good budget tyres. Nearly bought some but wanted to experience ps4s since im in a hot hatch
Are there any tyres that work on ice, other than studded ones? (confused)
I originally had the stock Michelin Pilot Super Sports. They were ok when warm and dry, but useless in the wet and cold. The car had some odd handling traits with those fitted. They were done by 18k miles, and as we had Michelin PS4 on our E91 which I really liked, I went for those and they’ve been amazing. Grip in full wet is outstanding now, and in the dry they are just as good as the MPSS were. PS4 are a bit softer but it just makes the car handle better for me. Plus, the odd handling traits have gone now. PS4 or Goodyear Assym 5 are what a lot use on the forums, you won’t regret either, and getting rid of run flats is the best thing you can do. Got rid of RFT in our E91 after 2 years and never gone back.
With the quality of the pavement in UK its time to switch to tanks, although they won't fit the narrow lanes this time..
These are fitted as standard to Mazda cars from the factory so hardly poor quality.
That's a fair reply - big tyre these are. Quick google Eagle F1s at £97 each on camskill. Fortunately, I dont drive an 18" anything haha. Only thought, riding on 18's and skimp on the only part of the car that connects you to the road :D
There's no doubt there are better tyres out there, but you can't compare apples with pears. GY Eagles cost nearly double if not double of these.
Not trolling at all. From my experience Toyo wear fast and perform poorly vs a GY Eagle. They used to come on Mazda 3 2011. However, it does look like the grip has improved. Maybe overall has improved? If youre doing around town, sure. If youre on the motorway, doing a lot of miles or a loaded car with family - in my opinon go for a better brand.
